Palin Tops Shatner on the "Tonight Show"
Actor William Shatner has a comedy bit he's been doing for awhile that he performed on Conan Obrien's 'Tonight Show' where he reads selected passages of Governor Sarah Palin's best selling "Going Rogue" to a beat music accompaniment for big yuks.
So who did Conan Obrien bring out right afterwards with Shatner's autobiography in her hands who got an even bigger laugh by doing the same thing right back at him? None other than Governor Palin!
Of course this was a setup and Shatner knew all about it,but it was still fun to watch.
One of the traits I find endearing about Governor Palin is her lack of pretension or an inflated sense of herself - especially when you compare her to some other prominent political figures I could name.
