Vlad Putin Calls Sarah Palin in What Might End Up One of Your Favorite ‘Tonight Show’ Skits Ever
The Blaze ^ | Apr. 3, 2014 | Jason Howerton

Posted on 04/03/2014 10:12:31 AM PDT by xzins

In a seriously hilarious skit on “The Tonight Show” Wednesday, Russian President “Vladimir Putin” (Jimmy Fallon) called up former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to talk about her impressive 2008 prediction that he would invade Ukraine.

We don’t want to give too much away, but Palin also busts a flute solo and “President Barack Obama” gets caught trying to listen in on their phone call.

Then there’s this side-splitting one-liner from Putin: ”I come from strong genes. President Obama, he comes from mom jeans.”

Trust us, you want to watch it all the way through.

Watch below:

Very good skit.

I was surprized, and may start watching the show.

There is the habit of never watching networks, which will need to be broken, but seriously it was a good skit.

Keep up the good work Tonight Show.

I expected bland or negative but got insightful and poignant and funny. It was good stuff from beginning to end.

It was funny. I heard about it yesterday here on FR, so I tuned in.

It was not only the first time I ever saw Fallon’s show, it was the first time in several years I’d watched anything on NBC/ABC/CBS/FOX (other than some local news and weather) in several years. Honestly.

I was very surprised, (PLEASANTLY!) too.
I already pinged her list to another similar thread.
If this keeps up, I might have to view Jimmy Fallon differently.

When you’ve lost late nite talk ....

Seriously this is bad for the zero. He’s lost the “cool” appeal. He’s becoming fair game for even his late night cohorts.

Not that conservatives or conservatism will ever be cool, but now the left is in scramble mode looking for the next one to distract the sheeple. I suspect the Secretary of Cankles is set up pretty good now for 2016.

Why can’t conservatism be cool?

Just asking?

What is it about believing in America which is out of favor, and what is it about not rooting for our side, which is ‘cool’.

I think this is 100% the right side. We just need to also be for American jobs, then we’re set.

100% set.

I haven’t watched the show in years though I did watch this clip via a news article on the subject. I also watched clips of Fallon with Billy Joel a few weeks ago. He is very talented and entertaining.

I think Jimmy realized he was now seen as a complete ‘White House Approved Tool of Propaganda, and is starting to walk that kissing up stuff back. He hopes it’s not too late. I’ll bet he still slavishly ‘warned Obama’ that there would be some Palin happening and his name would be uttered. Nice skit, Sarah didn’t overplay it or act over the top silly.

The best part was that twice, he mentioned that Palin had predicted in 2008 an invasion of Ukraine. The LIVs probably don’t know anything about that, and by making that a key point of the skit, it helps to offset the media driven caricature of her.

Plus, the NSA reference, linked directly to Obama, can’t hurt with younger voters, as well as those of us who recognize the danger of this kind of governmental intrusion.

Its funny because its relevant, and there is truth in it.

When it comes to actors and musicians, I don’t frankly care what they believe until they force it on me. Just do what you do, entertain. Nobody is above ridicule. In a free society, even dear leader is fair game. There have been so many missed comedic opportunities because Hollywood and the media have both refused to point out the obvious shortcomings of this administration. And that’s just sad.

"Didn’t know Sarah could play the flute."

She played the flute for the talent competition in the Miss Alaska contest. There's a video of it on YouTube, posted at the Huffington Post, and she's actually pretty good. But - Barf Alert - the Huff Post guy is possibly the most obnoxious liberal smartass I've ever seen, and that's saying a lot.

Now, if Moochelle played the flute, wouldn't we all know it by now? Wouldn't that be trotted out as evidence of her brilliance? But for the HP guy, Palin's respectable flute-playing is just an excuse for sophomoric mockery and bullying.

Think about the definition of “cool” -

it means - “in that state of rebellion to traditional values just below the point of being seen as dangerous”.

Conservatism IS about traditional values - because they’re proven successful.

"Why can’t conservatism be cool?"

Because libs won't let it be. Palin was cool, and if Palin were a lib, she would have been treated as a veritable goddess - good looking, intelligent, a maverick, star athlete, beauty queen, flautist, outdoorswoman, independent, compassionate, tough - a real-life Xena or Wonder Woman. But because she was a conservative, she was savaged and bullied and mocked mercilessly.

The RINOs and the media Rats keep implying Romney said that first, it was a "home run" by Sarah.

We need to start a new slogan: I was a conservative, when Conservative wasn’t cool. To the tune of Barbara Mandel’s - I was country, when country wasn’t cool. We need to turn this around so people will want to be considered cool! JMO, of course.

Awesome........Jimmy Fallon has learned very quickly that POTUS Obama is nothing but a horse’s butt in the eyes of the overwhelming majority of American voters. Like Jay Leno....looks like he gets it....unlike NBC, CNBC & MSNBC!!! Luv’d it...Mr. Fallon!!! And amazing that Sarah Palin is in a great comfort zone in front of the camera....a natural born ham and actress!!! Wonderful!!!

"Sarah is what the former Ann Coulter nuts around here only dreamed of seeing."

Coulter values her own snarkiness over winning friends and influencing people. She comes across as smug and obnoxious, and turns away potential converts.

I haven’t read the book, but I heard Gutfeld give a brief summary the other day, and Mr B, you could have been his ghost writer. It sounded dead on.

That’s why your post tripped my memory.
