William Shatner Does More Palin Poetry On Tonight Show

shatner palinOn Monday, William Shatner made news by reciting some of a recent speech from Sarah Palin as poetry. That bit went viral and was very popular so last night The Tonight Show brought Bill back, this time to do a reading of some of Palin’s recent Twitter updates. See below for video.

I don’t know if I should laugh or cry…

Palin should tweet about how honored she is to be having her tweets recited by the great …William……SHATNER

I agree with Hank.

Maybe Shatner can recite her new book on tape so someone will buy it before she disappears.

#3 – Why? He has a right to work with this material?

Shatner. What a good little leftist drone.

Gene L. Coon was a U. S. Marine. Stand at ease.

How do you not love Shatner? The guy was our hero when we were 7 years old, and nearly 40 years later, he is still up there, sharp as ever.

I really don’t like picking on Palin, but this is pretty mild. Nice to hear the audience reaction to The Shat.

The Shat rules. He can do anything!

That “no rain, no rainbow” folksy aphorism has been running in a Nokia commercial for months now. I guess stepping down has afforded her the luxury of catching up on all her DVR’ed “Two and a Half Men” reruns.

That’s the equivalent of “Masterpiece Theatre” in her home, I’d guess.

Shatner does it again! And the people ate it up! Funny stuff.

A NOTE FROM THE ADMIN -All the political snipes have been removed, one commenter has been banned for racist language

This was just a silly Shatner goof, not an excuse to turn this into another ugly political fight. Anyone who wants that can go to one of the millions of political sites.
