JUNEAU, AK – Sarah Palin continues her feud with David Letterman this week. Thursday night the Alaska Governor got back at the comedian by delivering a stand-up routine making fun of him.
Last night, Governor and former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin headlined at the Anchorage Laff Factory. Performing stand-up for the first time, she did a twenty minute set making fun of talk show host David Letterman, getting back at him for jokes he made about her family when they went to New York City earlier this week.
“Do you know what the difference is between a pitbull and a hockey mom?” she opened her act. “Whether or not Letterman is wearing lipstick when they’re done with him.” She went on about David Letterman being old, cranky, or skinny with jokes taken mostly from “Garfields Big Book of Insults, Put-Downs, and One-Liners.” At the end of her act she brought out a cantaloupe with Letterman’s face poorly drawn on it, including two Chiclets glued on as his teeth, and smashed it with a large hammer.
The Alaska crowd went nuts for the already popular Palin. Her routine was met with raucous applause and a standing ovation. When asked in her dressing room if she would consider taking her comedy to other parts of the country she said, “I don’t know. Those New York/Hollywood types probably wouldn’t get the jokes. Out here, in the Real America, they get it.”
