I heard that they wanted a VERY funny person as the warm-up... so they looked around and found... drum roll please.... SARAH PALIN! Since she is on her book tour, she was interested. For the first 5 seconds she is going to tell us everything she knows about government. For the next 1 or 2 seconds she will tell us her deepest thought on foreign policy. Then she will tell us how great it was to be Governor & Dictator of Alaska, until the other party (that would be the Alaskan Republicans) turned her out. I expect she will pass the rest of her monologue discussing the 2 or 3 true facts in her book, or maybe the 2 or 3 sentences she actually wrote.
