Tonight is the night folks!

The start of the GOP primaries.

Palin and Romney begin the 'Battle for Hearts and Minds' on a TV somewhere near you.

Follow me for all the sordid details...........

As most, if not all of you know, Palin had a very public spat with David Letterman about a tasteless joke he made about one of her daughters.

Never one to pass up a chance to be the 'victim', Sarah and her 1st Dude, Todd banged on about rape and insisted that Letterman meant the younger daughter when he meant the older one.

Whatever, it was a joke that misfired and Letterman apologised on his own show.

The Palins and their merry band of followers weren't to be placated and carried on with the campaign to get Letterman fired.

That culminated in this sorry little debacle outside the Sullivan Theatre

Sorry flks, can't get this one to embed - link

Letterman hasn't forgotten or forgiven it seems. Tonight, on his show, Letterman proudly presents none other than Mitt Romney. This is in direct competition with Jay Leno who is showcasing Sarah Palin on his show tonight.

The Palinbots aren't amused......

The New York Times’s venomous and possibly deranged Frank Rich, who associated Sarah Palin with terrorism in his Sunday column this week, borrows from his previous archrival George Will in the claim that the White She Devil is a critter from hell and anyway, she will never be elected.

While Letterman is suddenly hugging up to Mitt Romney as his alter ego in L.A., Jay Leno restarts again on a positive note with a visit by the White She Devil, the Wolf Girl Incarnate, the Slayer, the former governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin. But what is most telling comes up in Texas in the middle, where the Romney team, including Cheney, H.R. Bush, Boy George’s proxy Karen Hughes and Karl Rove, has lined up to take out Perry in his primary race against Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. White She Devil supports Perry.


Perry’s victory tomorrow will be overwhelming, with Gov. Palin’s endorsement, and Perry and Palin will bring a new face to American politics. In an innovative turn, Perry has refused endorsements of the mainstream newspapers, tools of tools like Will, Letterman and Rich, the mainstream mediocrity which is the two dominant parties and their fawning MSM acolytes, pulling out all the stakes now to defeat Perry and Palin

I link to the site for accuracy only

The posters comments are too dire to even copy and paste.

What stuns me about Palin going on Jay Leno is the shameless hypocrisy.

Some Jay Leno jokes about Palin..............

"Gov. Palin announced over the weekend that her 17 year old, unmarried daughter is five months pregnant. And you thought John Edwards was in trouble before! Now he's really done it"!

'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, 9.2.08.


Here's something I mentioned last week. For some reason the Secret Service revealed this. Sarah Palin's Secret Service code name is "danali." Turns out danali is an old Eskimo word that means Dan Quayle

Last night Sarah Palin gave an interview with ABC's CHarlie Gibson. Earlier today her future son-in-law was on Maury Povich: "You are the father!"

You get the picture, there are dozens of them, just google if you can stand any more.

Leno also seems to be dissing Conan... per Huffpo


Jay Leno and NBC may be trying to win back fans lost during the Conan O'Brien debacle, but this doesn't seem the best way to do it.

In his "Tonight Show" return, Leno promoted Tuesday's lineup, which includes Sarah Palin.

In hyping Palin's appearance, he said she "has never been on a late night show."

Palin, of course, appeared on the "Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien" in December alongside William Shatner, where she read Shatner's autobiography.

For anyone that thinks Palin can't be funny or win people over they should watch the Conan clip if they haven't already seen it.

Final bonus for the 'duelling late show song'

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
