Sarah Palin's surprise appearance on Conan O'Brien's show



From The LA Times:

Politicians much prefer Fridays to bury news releases they want to be able to say they put out but don't really want people to notice much. Especially on the eve of the second to last shopping Saturday of the 2009 Christmas shopping season.
A little misdirection and clandestine camouflage going on Friday afternoon at NBC's studio for "The Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien." Early audience arrivals were escorted out of the studio to permit a secret rehearsal by a surprise political guest.
No, not William Shatner.
Well, yes, William Shatner. Who read from a new best-seller.
But someone else showed up unannounced onstage to read from a less best-selling book than the one Shatner shared with the national TV audience.
Sarah Palin wraps up her well-covered, best-selling book tour this weekend with appearances back home in Alaska. Have we mentioned that the former governor's national favorability poll ratings have gone up from 39% last summer to 46% now? President Obama's job approval rating has slipped to 50% or below these days.
Interesting to note here, Conan O'Brien is tapped in the very blue state of California, yet listen to those sustain applause and whistles. They even love Palin in California.

I saw it and so many Star Trek references raced though my mind.
Mrs. Palin, as usual, was awesome.

The woman has so much personality. Something sorely missing from the vast majority of our leaders.

Conan needs new writers. Palin is capable of being very funny, and this had a lot more potential than what was exhibited.
