Palin Rocks The Tonight Show with Jay Leno
TheCypressTimes.com ^ | 03/03/2010 | Ron Devito

Posted on 03/03/2010 8:44:26 AM PST by Patriot1259

Governor Palin’s performance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno show was perfect. Addressing serious policy issues and performing comedy routines are difficult enough when they are mutually exclusive. It takes a special skill to fuse them and produce a show which delineates the issues in a humorous way. Governor Palin has a strong objective ego and is able to laugh at and poke fun at her own self. Jay Leno and Gov. Palin had a good rapport and played off each other. Her wardrobe and demeanor were relaxed, poised and appropriate to the venue. The outcome was a very enjoyable 14:35 that left the viewer wanting more.

I was underwhelmed by her performance.

It seemed thin and shallow.

Any headline about Mutt Rodking drives me nuts, even when his name is spelled right. ;-)

I loved her appearance, but I’m not sure what “serious policy issues” were addressed. It was entertaining and funny — Leno isn’t a political talk show, after all.

for serious issues, the behavior of the media and its nonfunctioning journalism role got some attention

When promoped by Leno, she pointed out how not only she and her children- but also Leno himself - have been treated badly and unfairly

His face showed she made the point

I guess that answers whether she’d appear with Leno’s “Tonight Show” or with Letterman’s “Late Show” first (in the unlikely event that anyone was wondering).

OMG! This was a stupendous interview and comedy routine for Sarah! I missed it last night because I was watching White Collar and forgot that it was going to be on. Go to the source and watch the YouTube of her routine with Jay.

President George W. Bush was another who could poke fun at himself with ease and seldom, if ever, made fun of anybody else in any situation. (Except for Cheney)

Look at this video to understand how little of an ego he had.

Think about Obama trying his hand at self-deprecating humor and you will see a real failure.

It was the Jay Leno Show, not Meet the Press.

Don't worry. Everyone was watching Mitt on Letterman because he's so charismatic and exciting./sarc.

I think she wqas great and her monologue was better than what I’ve seen from a lot of seasoned comedians. Great timing. Too bad she had to kiss up to McCain again. But otherwise she did great.

Why do we not have the same excellent rule with Sarah Palin that we have with any thread about Ann Coulter? Every thread with Sarah should contain at least one picture of Gorgeous and Beautiful Sarah, just as the practice we follow with Ann.........:-)

Lighten up. He was just having some fun because the article's original title incorrectly had her name spelled Paln.

Then you should have turned on Letterman. Romney gave a campaign speech there.

"I was underwhelmed by her performance. It seemed thin and shallow. "

It seemed fine - the only criticism I had was she didn't/wouldn't look at/acknowledge the audience - especially when she'd say something and the audience enthusiastically clapped for her. I kept yelling at her - look at the audience - acknowledge the audience. I wonder why.
