On Friday night’s episode of “The Tonight Show,” Conan O’Brien brought out William Shatner to read excerpts from Sarah Palin’s book, Going Rogue: How I Got Rich and Famous Even Though I’m Not Very Bright. (Shatner previously read Palin’s resignation speech and excerpts from Levi Johnston’s Twitter feed, which was later determined to be fake.)
The clip was enjoyable though unremarkable until Sarah Palin walked on stage, surprising even cynical ol’ me. She then read excerpts from Shatner’s autobiography while Shatner looked at her with lustful, watery eyes. As they walked off hand in hand, I said, “Man, he is gonna wear that ass OUT when they get back stage.” Then I laughed at my joke. Then I pictured Shatner and Palin getting it on, and I got grossed out. Then I pictured it some more and decided, hey, maybe I should be turned on instead.
