Palin on Leno: Wants ‘to Get the Left all Whee Whee-d Up’
March 3, 2010
(ChattahBox)— Sarah Palin, the former half-term governor of Alaska, Republican vice presidential candidate, Fox news contributor and Facebooker, appeared on Jay Leno’s “The Tonight Show” Tuesday night, and got in a few digs attacking the White House and healthcare reform. And when Leno raised the issue of her much-ridiculed palm crib notes, she referred to the practice as a “poor boy’s teleprompter. Palin then added that she plans on continuing the practice “to get the Left all Whee Whee-ed up.”
Dressed in faded jeans, a black jacket, black high-heeled pumps and her signature towering beehive, Palin traded quips with Leno, as he displayed images of her palm crib notes from her keynote speech at the Tea Party Convention in Nashville.
She admitted writing on her hands while in school and said she got the idea from her school teacher father. Palin then declared, using her typical childish language, that she would continue using her 8th-grade crib notes, for the sole purpose of getting Democrats riled up.
“Just to get the Left all Whee Whee-ed up I’m going to keep doing it,” said Palin.
Palin also declared with a straight face, that she joined Fox News as a contributor, because it was fair and balanced organization that never interjected opinion into news reporting:
“I think the mainstream media is quite broken and I think there needs to be the fairness, the balance in there — that’s why I joined Fox. Fair and balanced, yes. You know because, Jay, those years a go that I studied journalism it was all about the who, what, when, where, and why, it was not so much the opinion interjected in hard news stories. … As long as there is not the opinion under the guise of hard news stories — I think there needs to be clear differentiation.”
The bee-hived Palin then did a mock stand-up routine, in which she got in a couple political digs. And before taking the stage, she quipped: “Not even using cue cards: I will know these jokes like the front of my hands.”
Back home it was freezing. It was 5 degrees below Congress’ approval rating, said Palin during her stand-up routine.
Talking about Olympian snowboarder Shaun White’s signature trick, Palin said:
“And the only other people who could do a double Mctwist 1260 was last week–the White House on health care.”
