Sarah Palin Vs. William Shatner On “Tonight Show”

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I think she forgot she was supposed to be reading from the book.  Oh well, I give her credit for being a good sport.

    As I told people yesterday: What’s scary is that she comes across as almost likable. She keeps this up, and she’ll get more people approving of her.

    See “scary” above . . . .

    WEB – The trouble is, in some ways she is likeable — she has that same quality as Georgie had, the regular guy that might be fun to have a beer with. Only Georgie and Sarah aren’t regular guys, they’re rich politicians doing whatever they can to endear themselves to millions of people. And it works — for some weird reason people want their leaders to be as dumb as they are.

    Palin memorized the passages. It’s quite a polished performance.

    Clearly she is getting some professional help with her public appearances. A US paper claims that Richard Schnure wrote the speech Palin delivered at the Gridiron event in Washington DC earlier this month.

    Her book publishing company may have made it a condition of the book contract that she signed with them – control over the script for her promotion tour.

    She has excellent cheekbones, I will say that for her. As BBW gushed, “she should just be on TV.” I agree: only, also.

    I have no idea what she really wants to do with this opportunity (besides making a lot of cash quickly), but she’s obviously not taking up the hard work involved in becoming a serious lady politician.

    She’s likeable? With that voice, that attitude,
    the naivete, the chicken-out and quit syndrome,
    that shallow logic and reasoning?

    She’s not even a bingo-hall or bowling league
    mom, let alone a soccer mom. She turns the
    case for women in public office back to
    at least to the days of Margaret Chase Smith
    and Charlotte Whitton.

    If she didn’t have handlers and couldn’t read
    a teleprompter, she’d be dead. I’ve seen and
    talked to much better ladies every day of my
    life and if she were my neighbour, I’d seriously
    consider moving.

    I think Shatner has MORE EXPERIENCE….

    Sarah Palin/Fabio 2012!

    She was actually quite entertaining. She should stick to that. When politics get involved is when everything goes downhill.

    For sure. Somebody ghost writes everything, even all her stuff on Facebook. Not that there’s anything wrong with that — that’s pretty SOP for politicians and people famous for being famous.

    She’ll have a talk show before this is all over.

    I think that’s the direction she’s headed in — she already approached a radio network but they turned her down because they said she couldn’t sustain a 3-hour show. But that’s radio, and the personalities have to do a lot more talking than they do on TV (look how Rush jabbers his way through 3 hours every day). She’d be better for TV where all she has to do is ask some questions and let other people do most of the talking. The Sarah Palin Show on Fox, you betcha.

    Well, not to me. Her voice alone is like nails on a chalkboard 👿 And as for her dumbness, attitude, backward political views, arrogance etc., blah!

    But a lot of people don’t look beyond the outer facade, obviously.

    😆 Fabio?

    Agreed. She should keep posting her featherbrained missives on Facebook, and try to get a TV show.

    Caribou Barbie: Governing was hard and boring! Being a travelling personality is fun!

    She wouldn’t last a season as a talk show host. She’s not interested in other people’s lives and it would also require some degree of regularity and commitment. Her schtick, already old, would wilt rapidly.

    JJ, there’s been a noticeable improvement in some of Palin’s recent public performances. Yes, she’s always had other people doing her grunt work for her backstage.

    But real professionals have taken her in hand, I think. Compare her off-the-cuff past appearances – 2008 Thanksgiving, the Quitbull speech – to how she is currently presenting herself.

    She’s getting good written material as well as coaching, it seems. Her book publisher is likely behind this campaign to present her in the best light possible.

    Close… but I think it’s: When ~thinking~ is involved everything goes downhill.” 🙂

    Good. Morrow. All!
    You must admit…Shatner. At least. Completes. His sentences.
