Sarah Palin, at the end of her 36 city bus tour to promote her book Going Rogue, appeared on the Tonight Show tonight in an opening skit with William Shatner. You may remember that Shatner this summer, the ‘master thespian’ that he is, famously read some of Sarah Palin’s tweets from Twitter set to bongos which was hysterically funny.
Now this time, six (6) months later, it was Sarah Palin’s turn to ‘turn the tables’ on William Shatner.
The skit was setup much the same way as the one above was. Shatner came out and read several excerpts from her book. As Shatner was ready to depart the stage, the former Alaska governor walked out in front of a stunned and delighted audience and performed a dramatic reading of her own — also accompanied by bongos — from Mr. Shatner’s autobiography, “Up Till Now.”
From the look on Mr. Shatner’s face, I don’t think he knew she was coming. His surprise seemed genuine, but seeing that he is a master thespian, he could have just been acting.
She included passages dealing with Mr. Shatner’s days on the show “T.J. Hooker” and a reminiscence of the night he visited Johnny Carson and thought the host looked like Mr. Spock on the “Star Trek” episode when his brain fell out. Clearly Mrs. Palin can read and is not a troglodyte as the idiotic Chris Matthews declared recently on his show.
Enjoy. It’s a very funny bit and well played by the Governor.
