She zings Shatner back. Very Funny!!!
(Excerpt) Read more at youtube.com ...
Sarah has tremendous stage presence, better than most professional actors and entertainers.
thanks for the link
couple more of those, spread out properly, will go a long way
I didnt see the part where Shatner zinged her.
Sorry I missed the show.
What is Shatner politics? I suspect he’s a bottom feeding lefty to have been in Hollywood so long.
Wasn’t he on Rush last week?
Can someone fill us in?
Palin came on Conan, and then left? That was it? Did you hear the response though? The crowd went wild for minutes.
“What is Shatner politics?”
Not Alec Baldwin but liberal.
LOL - good one!
I think he is a closet conservative who is gay, but that is just a hunch.
She left them wanting more. Very smart!
Shatner is petite.
Actually, he is more a libertarian than liberal. His opinions are more fashined by his surroundings and not research. When he interviewed Rush on his show, the only thing that stood out lefty was the health care debate they briefly explored but it looked as though he was taking in all of Rush’s comments as a learing experience.
A lot like Burt Rutan. Burt decided to find out for himself what was up with the AGW claims and he came to a conclusion to match the general viewpoints of freepers. Just because he did his own independeent research outside his field of expertise.
Better than Tina Fey!
Shatner was truly amazed by her, his jawed dropped a foot and all he could do was stare at her, gotta remember William Shatner starred with many many up and coming scantily clad actresses back on Star Trek, I remember him and Joan Collins (she is soooo hot!)and Diana Muldaur just to name two.
YOu have to watch this a second time to realize how very naturally talented she is.
Conservative, I think.
I don’t think the stuff they ‘read’ is actually in their books. They made it up to make it somewhat funny.
That said, Sarah did a terrific job...and so did Shatner!
She can upstage just about anyone these days.
In your face idiots. She has what it takes if you just get positive jerks.
That sparkle and twinkle in her eye. She’s actually a smart cookie, and you can see Conan & Shatner were unnerved by it.
Moxie. Sarah has moxie.
Go get ‘em, Cuda.
“Shatner was truly amazed by her”
Yep - it looked that way. I recall that Alec Baldwin was impressed with her charm and her “niceness” when she made that appearance on SNL. Sara is becoming a hugely important ambassador for conservatives. Outstanding!
Now that she has become unencumbered (spelling?) by McCain, we will really get to see what Palin can do. McCain camp allowed a lot of damage to be done to her and she was not able to defend herself appropriately. Now is her time.
She was GREAT!! Go SARAH!!
And gorgeous too! Easy on the eyes.
I don't think McCain's campaign handlers had a clue how to best utilize her. It'd be like a team having Adrian Peterson and being content to only throw him an occasional screen passes.
Good one. You nailed it.
What, like you think he didn’t know she was following? LOL
Shatner has show, Shatner wants ratings.
He is smitten by her back stage.
Invites her on his show.
My guess we see this in the next couple of months....
When I met Sarah in person and I mean up close like three feet away was back in 1996 or so and she has this presence like a controlled intelligent tornado, she is an ambition driven person but with a rare quality of where she has lived most of her life having brought out the true definition of a practical honest hard working person that you would love to have as a neighbor or in charge of any group, PTA or civil defense preparedness committee.
I’m really not trying to pitch too much for her as she is like a neighbor to me as she lives 11 miles away but in Alaska many people have “neighbors” a hundred miles apart out in the bush.
Her only fault would be what would she become if given the power of POTUS, looking at her and what she has done at least here in Alaska she would become public enemy number one for a long time by the thousands of super rich elitists that have only risen to power by going to bed with rising political parties, Sarah would clean house immediately....and quite dramatically I would surmise, its a no brainer why so many fear her, she is a threat to their existence.
Sarah needs a lot more media exposure, I cannot say it would be a good move but it may not exactly hurt her either but I think she should try out as being a guest commentator on FOX for awhile. She is very very good in front of the camera.
Moxie? Yah know, I hate that soda!.....lol
I think he knew because I read earlier about the security measures, thing of it is even for an actor like Shatner his expression was just awestruck with admiration.
Like the phoenix arising from the ashes? The MSM and the democratic left have figuratively struck her down like Darth Vader did to Obi-Wan, but it has only made her more powerful.
She's our very own super hero!
|I am sure this was completely staged
Agreed. What that tells us is that Conan & Co. knew what they were doing, which was to give Sarah Palin a platform from which to illustrate how she has been treated by the media. Shatner's "quotes" from her book were typical of what the media does to Palin on a regular basis. By having her do the same thing to Shatner's book, she shows everybody what a stupid trick it is.
Somebody on that show likes Palin. I suspect it might be Conan himself.
Rush was on Shatner’s show last week.
As adults she is very much a real life hero, at least to me and I’m 53 years old, and no I do not live in a basement with my mother.
Interesting response, so are those below the U Tube video, most are saying how much they like her, some even said they would now vote for her. I think she is doing the right thing with this book tour.
Good to know she’s exactly what she appears to be!
She’s definitely good in front of the camera - recall her Rep convention speech, where her teleprompter failed - and she still delivered a fantastic speech. This, I believe, is why the dems hate her so much. She’s a charming populist (I would call her a populist) who is everything the libs claim to be but are not. She should make a few more appearances like this.
She’s like Reagan: she has natural talent that was furthered when she worked professionally in communications (as a TV reporter) as a young adult.
Shatner thought she was Tina Fey at first. He kept staring. Then, he realized it actually was Sarah Palin.
It was a brilliant bit of a response from her: not only did she expose the trick for what it is, she showed she could take a joke and give as well as she can take all the while she made her point.
She’s very good with smaller nuances as well. For example, she refers to Shatner first as ‘Bill’ and then as ‘Mr. Shatner’ in a single sentence. That is, she’s on the same level as a beloved star, but also respectful of him as an elder as well.
Same here, I'm 52, a family man and have been around the block a few times. I love what Sarah stands for - and that she actually stands for it - and I support her fully.
I repeat: GO SARAH!
I agree - very much like Reagan!
Recently I saw clips of obama’s campaign speeches, and he’s just not the awesome speaker he’s made out to be. Compared to Sarah, he can’t speak his way out of a paper bag. Obviously the left can’t shut Sarah up. So people are bound to notice and maybe listen. This won’t be good news for obama and crew.
I sure hope so. It might also help that taking the trashy leftist route to ratings is a dismal failure - for Leno too - and maybe even NBC will wisen up and start trying to appeal to the other *60%* of the population.
Kudos to Conan for doing this too, was really funny! If he keeps doing stuff like that I will have to ti-vo.
One hell of a rockstar reception for Sarah.
