Sarah Palin on The Tonight Show: Crib Notes, One-Liners & Odd Explanations

by at . Comments

At least Sarah Palin can laugh at herself sometimes.

In The Tonight Show's opening bit Tuesday, the former Alaska governor and current media celebrity told Jay Leno "we're going old school tonight," pointing to the words "Good evening and welcome to the Tonight Show" printed on her hand.

Calling it "the poor man's teleprompter," it was a funny jab at herself being caught with talking points written on her hand during a recent speech.

Palin also addressed the whole Family Guy thing yet again.

"What I would desire is more opportunity to follow up on a comment that perhaps I've made," she said, implying she does not get enough media coverage.

"Jay, you've gone through this, too, especially in the last few months," Palin continued as Leno feigned disagreement. "It's like that old saying, a lie can travel halfway around the world before the truth can even get its pants on in the morning."


Leno also asked Palin about the possibility of abandoning politics for her own talk show one day. "I hear once in awhile this comes open," she quipped.
