Frequent readers know I’m no fan of Sarah Palin because I think she’s a phony as a conservative and extremely ignorant.
But a video of William Shatner reading parts of her breathy farewell speech, on last night’s “Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien,” just isn’t funny. Not in the least. The video is a trending topic on Twitter. But that’s only because people with zero sense of humor will laugh at anything about Palin. There’s much to laugh at there, but not this. They hate her for the wrong reasons (the right reasons: she’s a fraud, ignoramus, selfish, a quitter, over-rated, a feminist who shoved her husband into the emasculating Mr. Mom role, and, again, not a conservative).
Here’s the unfunny video, followed by my all-time favorite Shatner video from “Saturday Night Live” (you know the one, and if you don’t, “Get a Life”):
