Chris Christie on the Tonight Show. Attempting to improve his political options, or just having a little harmless fun?

Courtesy of the New York Daily News: 

If the Bridgegate scandal has taken a toll on Gov. Chris Christie, he didn’t show it Thursday when he did a light-weight dance on “The Tonight Show.” 

A tanned and slimmer Christie bounded onstage for an “Evolution of Dad Dancing” skit, doing the “Back It Up” and “Don’t Make Me Turn This Car Around” with host Jimmy Fallon. Then the New Jersey Republican and die-hard Springsteen fan stalked off in faux rage when Fallon did a “This Bridge is Closed” dance. 

Later, during a sit-down, Christie shrugged off a ribbing about his weight — calling Fallon a “putz” for going there. 

Personally I don't think that Christie could dance nearly fast or long enough to sweat out the stench of bridge-gate, but perhaps he does. 

I will admit that it's pretty entertaining, and always a good idea to have politicians demonstrate the ability to laugh at themselves though.

However if Christie was trying to outshine a certain First Lady with his dance moves he failed miserably. Can you say EPIC FAIL?

Sarah Palin's bit on the Tonight Show last night. Oh the humanity.

Bad wig, deflated breasteses, mortuary style makeup, and no visible comic timing.  Yep that's Palin.

Of course Palin used the appearance to get as much attention as possible, and of course pimp her crappy new show.

The caption over this one read:

Ran into Mr. Strong Genes and Mr. Mom Jeans at the Tonight Show. Tune in to the Tonight Show tonight and tomorrow to “Amazing America” on Sportsman Channel!

I am sure that  Palin thinks that she came off well in that segment (Even got off a reference to Obama's mom jeans and Mama Grizzly's), but I predict that much like the SNL bits she will soon learn that more people were laughing AT her, than laughing WITH her.

Sarah Palin gives interview about new faux hunting show, Fact calls her CPAC speech mooseshit, while Jimmy Fallon mocked the fact she plagiarized Dr. Seuss.

Courtesy of Access Atlanta:

 Politician turned pundit Sarah Palin says vegetarianism "is an old Indian word for poor shot" in a new interview appearing in the April issue of the magazine Guns & Ammo. 

She also shares wisdom from her father, who advocated taking children on hunting expeditions. "I'm really blessed that all my kids love a rugged outdoor lifestyle," she says. 

You know that whole "Indian word for poor shot" joke is as old and used up as Palin's lady parts.

Oh and by the way we call them Native Americans today.

For the record there is virtually nobody in Wasilla who has ever known Sarah to hunt, and seasoned hunters who have seen her hold a rifle all agree she could not hit the side of a barn if the barrel were pressed up against it. I have little doubt that his interview will be chock full of the same fake family mythology and bullshit as ever other one she has ever given.

Speaking of bullshit, here is what reported about her comments about Obamacare at CPAC: 

Sarah Palin told her fellow conservatives at CPAC that “there are more uninsured today than when Obama began all of this,” referring to the Affordable Care Act. But there is no evidence of that. Annual Census surveys show the percentage of uninsured Americans in 2010, when the ACA became law, was 16.3 percent. It dropped to 15.7 percent in 2011 and 15.4 percent in 2012. Gallup surveys show the percentage of uninsured Americans hit a five-year low in the first two months of this year. 

It is too early to determine the full impact of the ACA, but the fact is that the percentage of uninsured Americans has been on the decline since the law took effect — and, conversely, the percentage of the insured has increased. Congressional budget experts project that the law will reduce the number of the uninsured by 13 million by the end of this year. 

The Census Bureau’s annual Current Population Survey shows 16.3 percent of Americans were without health insurance in 2010, when the law took effect. Since then, the rate has fallen to 15.7 percent in 2011 and 15.4 percent in 2012. (The raw numbers have gone down, too, from 50 million uninsured in 2010 to 48 million in 2012.) 

As for the state of the “uninsured today,” which was Palin’s time frame, Gallup regularly conducts a survey called the Well-Being Index of more than 28,000 Americans. On March 10, Gallup issued a press release on its latest survey that carried the headline, “U.S. Uninsured Rate Continues to Fall.” The survey, which covered Jan. 2 to Feb. 28, shows the percentage of uninsured Americans hit a new five-year low at 15.9 percent, down from 17.1 percent in the final quarter of 2013. 

By the end of 2014, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates the law will reduce the number of uninsured Americans by 13 million people. The report says there will be 25 million fewer uninsured Americans in 2024 because of the law.

In other words, piles and piles of Palin's signature brand of moose poop. 

In fact the Affordable Care Act is doing quite well, and one can only imagine how much better it would have done if the conservatives had not been pissing on it from the moment it was passed, and had actually worked to help make it more successful.

But what am I saying, that would have meant doing something good for their constituents.

Now in the comedy arena Palin provided much inspiration, especially for Jimmy Fallon.

Rush Limbaugh attacks Bruce Springsteen for performing parody directed at Chris Christie.

Chris Christie with Springsteen tickets.
So as many of you know Springsteen and Jimmy Fallon performed a new version of "Born to Run" in which they made reference to the George Washington Bridge closing.

At the time I wrote that it would probably really hit Christie where he lived because he is a HUGE fan of Springsteen. And since Christie has not yet spoken about the parody I think I was probably right.

However that has not stopped Rush Limbaugh from coming to Christie's defense.

Limbaugh brings up the fact that during the President's visit to New Jersey after Super storm Sandy that Obama facilitated a phone call between Christie and "The Boss" and insinuating that somehow Christie was set up.  

RUSH: There's no question that's painful. The nerve of Springsteen! Governor Christie has attended over 127 Springsteen concerts. Governor Christie loves this guy. It's 127 different concerts he's attended, and he's mocked, he's made fun of. He can't be a real fan because he's a Republican. 

You can only be a real fan and friend to somebody like Springsteen if you're a Democrat, and even then for only as long as they can use you. But if you are a Republican? You are only a friend of a Democrat for as long as they can use you, and why this isn't seen by people is beyond me. I think Springsteen has to know, because Christie was public with it. Christie... In fact, not only did Christie have no compunction telling people this, he was proud to tell people that he talked to Springsteen! He cried because he had the chance to talk to Springsteen. Now, think about that however you wish, but the fact is, it was a big deal to Christie. It's a big deal that Springsteen and he are both Jersey guys. 

It was a big deal that Obama got Springsteen on the phone from Air Force One. 

Christie's thinking, "Man, this is great! We're all working together and we're gonna fix this problem. We're gonna fix New Jersey back up," and this thing comes, and Christie has publicly said he didn't have anything to do with it. He's apologized, he's done all the right things -- and here is the guy who brought him to tears by talking to him, making fun of him on a late-night comedy show. That is really... 

You talk about a low-rent character?

"Low rent character?" Bruce Springsteen?

Yeah Limbaugh wishes he could afford to pay rent on Bruce Springsteen.

You know Springsteen is a very, very powerful man within the entertainment world. So the idea that he was manipulated by the "Left" to hurt Christie's feelings is ridiculous.

However the Boss is also somebody who genuinely feels for the working man, he doesn't just pander to them in order to get elected. (Like SOME PEOPLE we know.)

Therefore I have to imagine that the way Fallon got Bruce Springsteen to join him in that song was simply to ask him. And that Springsteen, who has never reciprocated Christie's admiration, jumped at the opportunity.

So if it hurt Chris Christie's feelings to have his bullshit called out on national television by his idol, then he can come clean, apologize to his constituents, and volunteer to step aside if the people of New Jersey want that from him.

THAT might actually earn Springsteen's respect.

Chris Christie may have thought he was sad before but imagine his depression after being mocked by Jimmy Fallon and his idol Bruce Springsteen.

Okay that was brilliant.

Chris Christie has talked constantly about his deep love of Bruce Springsteen so this is going to really cause him some emotional discomfort.

I think more and more it is becoming impossible to believe that he was not the architect of the George Washington  Bridge closures.

The only question is will this ONLY torpedo his chances at a 2016 Republican nomination, or will he also soon face impeachment in New Jersey?

My favorite show has been preempted tonight. Perhaps this will serve to tide us over.

That doth barely serve to slake my thirst for the clashing of steel and intrigue of the Lannisters, but will do for now.

Thou would doest well not to forget...

Since you all seemed to enjoy that clip this morning of Michelle Obama dancing with Jimmy Fallon perhaps you would like to see the actual interview.

Part One:

Part Two:

Doesn't it seem that Jimmy Fallon and Michelle are like best girlfriends or something?

I mean here they are discussing reality television and the upcoming Oscars, like besties or something.

I thought overall the First lady gives her best interviews on Fallon's show.

Michelle Obama helps Jimmy Fallon demonstrate the Evolution of the Mom Dance.

Is there anybody who does not like Michelle Obama?

I think she is certainly setting the bar a whole lot higher for the next batch of First Ladies, that much is for sure.

Jimmy Fallon channels James Taylor's performance at the DNC. With some slight modifications.

Okay now I like Jimmy Fallon (Though his show is on much too late for me to watch, cause I needs my beauty sleep), but I don't think I was ever aware that he was THIS talented.

Give it a listen, you are going to LOVE it. I promise.

New GOP ad attacks President Obama for his ability to communicate effectively with Americans. Because you know that kind of sucks for them.

Oh my God Republicans, America likes him! Quick somehow make that a bad thing!

Now I don't work for the RNC (I know that surprises some of you, but it's true.), but if I did I certainly would NOT have allowed a side by side comparison of President Obama and the Master of Milquetoast Monotones himself, Mittens R-Money.

I mean seriously, do they REALLY think this comparison shows Romney in a good light?

But you know they are very, very unhappy with the President going onto these college campuses and late night programs.  And do you know why?

Because it is working!

See chart bigger here.
Yeah Romney can only dream of getting this kind of positive response to something he did.

Now if he places another dog on his roof? THAT will make Twitter explode!

President Obama uses a rather unique technique to deliver his message on Jimmy Fallon last night.

Damn this guy is cool!  Romney is going to look like a cardboard cutout compared to the POTUS during the general election debates. (Actually I think a cardboard cutout would have quite a bit more personality.)

I tries to stay up last night to watch the entire interview on Fallon's show last night, but the warm milk kicked in and I was out while Jay Leno's chin was still bobbing around on my TV.

However if you click here you can see the entire show or just the four part interview for yourself.

Michelle Obama with Jimmy Fallon last night.

I have to admit that I totally missed this last night.

I had an exhausting day and made it to the very beginning of Fallon's monologue and that's pretty much all I remember.

Of course thanks to the wonder of the internet I had the opportunity to watch the segment this morning and then share it with all of you as well.

On a side note my daughter came home last night and wanted to talk politics. She said that there is a LOT of enthusiasm among her friends for this next election and that everybody she knows is voting Obama. 

She also watched that science fair in the White House video and said THAT was the kind of man that she was proud to support in 2012.

I love that kid!

Just for fun: Jimmy Fallon Presents "Tebowie."

We have dealt with some pretty heavy issues this last week, so I think we deserve a little humor in our lives.

Here is Jimmy Fallon doing a great skit combining Tebow with one of my favorite artists, David Bowie.

And just because I can't help myself I thought I should also tell you that the moronic GOP Presidential candidates are climbing all over themselves to get a coveted Tim Tebow endorsement. Because they really are THAT desperate.
