Video: When Vladimir Putin Called Sarah Palin
Jimmy Fallon's ratings on the Tonight Show haven't been all that great so far, so his booker decided to bring in a guaranteed ratings machine..Governor Sarah Palin.
Now, being in demand as she always is, the Governor obviously made in clear she wasn't interested in being interviewed, but she was willing to do this comedy skit, in exchange for a plug for her upcoming TV show, "Amazing America" , which premiered last night on the Sportsman's Channel.
The skit's merely fair - the funniest bit has a cameo by the actor playing Barack Obama - but what struck me most was the response Sarah Palin got in solid Blue New York City.
Fallon didn't tell the audience she was going to be in the skit in his intro, and the scream of delight from the audience that greeted her when she came on camera has to be heard to be believed.
Another high point at the end is when Putin says to Sarah Palin that he's thinking about invading Alaska and she tells him why that would be a really bad idea. Again, the audience response is a-m-a-z-i-n-g. And again this is in New York City.
The American spirit isn't dead yet..just starved for leadership.
