The Tonight Show with Jay Leno
If you watched TV last weekend, you know that ABC’s Charlie Gibson did something John McCain has never done — interviewed Sarah Palin.
Then, earlier today, her son was on Maury Povich.
At one point, Gibson asked about the Bush Doctrine, and she didn’t know what it was. But to be fair, even Bush doesn’t know what it is.
Sarah Palin has her own action figure. And just today, a Joe Biden action figure was released. It talks . . . and talks . . . and talks . . .
Late Show with David Letterman
“Righteous Kill,” starring Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, opened today. It’s about the murder of a pimp by a serial killer. Who says there aren’t any family movies these days . . .
My mom will only watch De Niro movies on the plane. She prefers the work “freakin.”
John McCain was on “The View.” And I thought, Good Lord — hasn’t this man endured enough torture?
When he was finished on the show, he bought everyone on the show a house.
Late Night with Conan O’Brien
All the candidates are preparing for the debates — Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm has agreed to help Joe Biden prepare for the debate by standing in and playing the role of Sarah Palin. Up until now, the only Sarah Palin role-playing has come at the request of Bill Clinton.
Speaking of Bill Clinton, yesterday in New York, Barack Obama had lunch with the former president. Afterwards, Clinton said, “It’s the first time the two of us have had a chance to sit down together and really bitch about Hillary.”
The latest political commercial by Barack Obama attempts to portray John McCain as being unfamiliar with technology. McCain was outraged and responded with an e-mail — or as McCain calls it, “a computer letter from the future.”
Last week, John McCain appeared as a guest on “The View.” There was an awkward moment when he looked Barbara Walters up and down and said, “Man, if I was 20 years younger . . .”
The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson
ABC just showed their two-hour Sarah Palin special. It was called “Extreme Makeover — Republican Party Edition.”
Here’s a warm story I read: A firefighter revived a cat by giving it mouth to mouth. That’s probably the story I’d go with too.
Saturday was International Chocolate Day. I used to dance under the name International Chocolate.
Jimmy Kimmel Live!
John McCain and his wife Cindy stopped in for a visit with the ladies on “The View.” I don’t think it was the light, chatty experience the McCains were hoping for. At one point Whoopi Goldberg asked if she should worry about slavery making a comeback if he’s elected . . . he never did answer her.
After “The View,” McCain went and taped an episode of Rachael Wray’s show. He did a recipe that was one Sarah Palin’s — spaghetti and moose balls.
Sarah Palin had her first real interview. It was with ABC’s Charlie Gibson. The McCain people were happy with the interview. It went so well, they may even let her do another one.
