It seemed like Sarah Palin enjoyed herself last night as a guest on Jay Leno’s Tonight Show. The former governor of Alaska sat next to Leno’s desk in jeans and a black blazer, fielding Leno’s questions as they came.

Of course, Leno didn’t put Palin in the hot seat. Instead, he kept the interview light and simple, asking her to explain what she had written on her hand when giving her Tea Party speech, to which she said she wrote the words “Energy, budget cuts, tax, and lift American spirit.” She inherited the “hand notes” from her father and said she was going to continue doing it.

Leno also asked her about the Tea Party movement, and she tried to explain it as “many, many independent people, not excessively partisan, not one side or another.” And when she was asked about doing a talk show, Palin got in a laugh when she said, “I hear this desk is open sometimes.”

But Palin didn’t want the laughs to end there. She did what Leno called “brave” and performed her own mini monologue, where she poked fun at congress, herself, and even Tina Fey, her famous impersonator. Watch her “stand-up” below. (Huffington Post)

    The camera loves her, that’s for sure.

    Is she a politician or just a camera hog? To me, she seems to be hurting her political career by constantly appearing on TV shows. I get the feeling that she wants to be famous more than helping the American government.

    I’ll have to agree with NYCdogmommy. I’ve been seeing her way too much on television. Maybe she should pursue an acting career. hah!
