Sarah Palin showed off her comedic skills on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night, with the host taking on the role of Russian president Vladimir Putin.

In a sketch with the former Republican V.P. nominee and Alaska Governor, Putin puts in a phone call to the political firebrand, asking for a key clarification:

"I heard back in 2008, you predicted I would invade Ukraine. Is that true?"

"You betcha, Vlad," says Palin, advising him to pull out of Ukraine.

"Whoa, hey Capt. Buzzkill," the autocrat responds, before moving on to other more important topics, such as March Madness, kids and grizzly bears.

Sarah Palin is going from standing up for TV stars (she's on Team Phil Robertson) to being a TV star herself.

The former Vice Presidential candidate appeared this morning at the Television Critics Association Press Tour in promotion of "Amazing America with Sarah Palin," which premieres April 3 on the Sportsman Channel.

"It's gonna be huge and it's gonna be fun," Palin told reporters, explaining that the series will follow her and other family members around the country.

Sarah Palin has already expressed her view on the Phil Robertson scandal that has rocked television's top-rated reality show.

Soon after A&E suspended the Duck Dynasty star, Palin Tweeted that Robertson simply expressed his "personal opinion" and his rights to free speech were being impinged on.

That's a commonly misguided point of view, considering the First Amendment has nothing to do with one suffering professional consequences for one's words or actions.

But Palin went On the Record With Greta Susteren this week and admitted she hasn't actually read Robertson's fiery comments regarding homosexuality.

"I haven't read the article. I don't know exactly how he said it," Palin told the host. "What he was doing was in response to a question about a lifestyle he disagrees with, and yet he has said over and over again he doesn't hate the person engaging in the lifestyle he disagrees with, but in response he was quoting the gospel.

"So people who are so insulted and offended by what he said evidently are offended by what he was quoting in the gospel."

Martin Bashir has resigned from MSNBC in the wake of the controversy he started when he advocated doing something very unpleasant to Sarah Palin.

Almost three weeks after his shocking on-air trashing of Palin, he finally stepped down from the network. A steep price to pay, yes, but deservedly so.

At issue was Palin comparing America’s Chinese debt to slavery, and her insistence that her claim was not racist. Bashir tried to make light of this, and failed.

He essentially advocated that someone use her mouth as a latrine, but didn't even word it as nicely as that. His resignation statement was appropriately contrite:

"After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday," Bashir said.

Last week, Sarah Palin compared the national debt to slavery, saying both are examples of one being "beholden to a foreign master."

It wasn't the ex-governor's finest hour.

But this controversial statement was quickly overshadowed by Martin Bashir's critique of Palin, as the MSNBC analyst referred to the former Vice Presidential candidate as a "world class idiot" and added that someone should shove feces in her mouth.

On air, Bashir recounted an excerpt from an 18th century plantation owner that mentioned how the man used to deal with unruly slaves, specifically one named Hector who the owner "flogged and "pickled" and then put "shit in his mouth."

Sarah Palin has no love for the father of her grandson Tripp. At all.

Asked bt TMZ about Levi Johnston, the man who got Bristol Palin pregnant during the 2008 campaign, the phrase "deadbeat dad" escaped her lips in seconds.

Check out the clip below and see Sarah's disdain for yourself ...

As you may remember from last week, Levi has filed legal documents asking for 50-50 custody of Tripp, now four, saying it's in the kid's best interest.

Needless to say, Sarah and Bristol Palin do not concur.

Levi is approximately $66,000 (!) behind in child support, which Bristol claims is the reason for his custody play - to get that amount lowered at all costs.

Sarah Palin is slamming the U.S. government for using our American war heroes as “political pawns” in the current standoff over the federal budget.

In vintage Palin fashion, however, she is sort of doing the same thing.

Palin led a big rally in Washington to protest the government shutdown that has closed national monuments to visitors, calling such closures "shameful."

The 2008 Republican V.P. nominee feels Congress is using the veterans' plight to play on the sympathies of the American public. Not a bad point.

Political leanings aside, you can at least see why someone would say that ... but Palin was flanked by vets at her attention-grabbing stunt at the WWII memorial.

Pretty much the definition of irony. Good dig at Joe Biden, though.

David Kernell, the former college student who hacked Sarah Palin's email in 2008 looking for politically damaging information, is FINALLY off probation.

Sarah Palin Style

Kernell’s prison term ended in November 2011, and a judge has now ended his post-prison probation, The Commercial Appeal of Memphis, Tenn., reports.

He was scheduled to remain on probation until late 2014, but Judge Thomas Phillips agreed to Kernell’s request to end his probation early.

As NBC affiliate WBIR notes, Kernell’s attorney Wade Davis continues to argue, five years later, that his client only committed a youthful prank.

Sarah Palin says she is considering a run for U.S. Senate in 2014.

Alaska's most high-profile Republican says a lot of things for attention, obviously, but this opportunity seems both within reach and winnable for her.

S 2 the P

The 2008 GOP V.P. candidate has been buzzed about as a challenger for Democratic Sen. Mark Begich, who upset Ted Stevens in the 2008 election.

Sarah Palin told Fox News Tuesday that she's considering a run because so many people have asked her to, but she also said she's not deciding yet.

Sarah Palin does not hold back, even (or especially) when it comes to her own party, which she says keeps "backing away from the planks in our platform."

The 2008 GOP V.P. candidate, who just rejoined Fox News as a paid contributor, says there may come a time where she looks into forming a third party.

"Remember, these are private parties. No one forces us to be enlisted," she said. "I think there will be a lot of us who start saying, 'GOP, if you abandon us, well, we have nowhere else to go."

Palin, who talked of a "Freedom Party" founded on conservative principles and a "libertarian streak," is particularly incensed by the new immigration reform bill.
