Sarah Palin Appears On Leno

Sarah Palin Appears On Leno

Sarah Palin: stand-up comic!

"I'm glad I'm not vice president. I'm glad because I would not know what to do with all that free time," Palin quipped on The Tonight Show.

She made her comedy debut on The Tonight Show and got lots of laughs.

"I watched the Winter Olympics, skiing, fighting on the ice, skating, bobsledding. In Alaska that's our morning commute," Palin joked.

Palin's 3 minute stand-up routine came on Jay Leno's second night back in The Tonight Show chair. 

"What about that Sarah Palin? She's not ready to be president is she?" asked David Letterman on The Late Show.

Over on his show Dave Letterman took a pot shot at Palin. His guest was Mitt Romney, a likely challenger to Sarah Palin for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012.

Palin's appearance on Leno was a dig at her nemesis Letterman. She even took Leno's side in the Conan O'Brien controversy.

"It's been a few weeks of unfair, non-stop criticism from people who don't know the real story, and I just say, Jay, welcome to my world," Palin told Leno.
