Sarah Palin Mocks 'Beatnik' William Shatner On 'Tonight Show'

December 12th, 2009 10:26 AM

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin continued her historic climb into the hearts of Americans Friday by appearing on NBC's "Tonight Show" in a small cameo role.

Host Conan O'Brien first brought out William Shatner to do a beatnik style reading of Palin's "Going Rogue" complete with music and bongos.

When he was done, Palin surprisingly walked on stage to do her own reading from Shatner's autobiography "Up Till Now" (video embedded below the fold, h/t Allahpundit):

It seems no matter how media try to tear this woman down, she gets more and more popular.

Makes you wonder what Jack Kerouac would think if he was still alive.

*****Update: For those that thought this was an impromptu appearance by Palin that caught Shatner off guard, the former Governor has posted pictures of the event at her Facebook page.
