You gotta be Putin me on…Sarah Palin on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon! You heard right, folks. At the top of the show tonight, Jimmy Fallon announces the White House is thrilled with the enrollment in ObamaCare as they finally met their goal with the President stating “It is here to stay” because if enrollees think it was hard getting into the program, just try getting out!
Even funnier is the timer placed on Vice President Biden for making some obscure gesture to draw attention to himself during the press conference yesterday and it took him a mere 3.74 seconds. Fallon trips onto the subject of the next presidential election with the fact Hillary Clinton leads Chris Christie by four points in a poll from Virginia as to who they would vote for as president in 2016. This brings up the “What Was The Question?” segment…
- The first poll presented shows Chris Christie with 85% and Bill DeBlasio with 15%. The question? “Which candidate can recite the entire Denny’s menu from memory?”
- The next poll shows John Kerry with a 73% compared to Nancy Pelosi’s 27%. The question is “Whose face seems like it’s already on money?” (Kerry facial expression far more stoic!)
- The poll with Marco Rubio leading Jeb Bush by nearly 100% is for the question “Who yells ‘What?’ during a game of Marco Polo?”
- Lindsey Graham leads Hillary Clinton 69% to 31% in a poll asking the question “Who is likely to be the first female president?”
- The final poll addresses Scott Brown’s 84% lead over the 16% of Ted Cruz with the question “Which candidate looks like he would hug his wife from behind in a Cialis commercial?”
Following this is the amazing announcement that a high school senior from New York has been accepted to all eight Ivy League colleges; Fallon cannot even name all eight. He follows this with a clip from the reality show 19 Kids and Counting where a young man, Ben Seewald, must officially ask permission to “court” Jessa Duggar…it is painfully awkward! The final news of the moment is about Hank, the new Milwaukee Bruins mascot, who is a cute rescue pooch winning fans over by the droves but as the reporter notes must rest for his big day following opening day when he is to be neutered…seriously!
Fallon announces tomorrow night he will take on Daniel Radcliffe in a game of “Sticky Balls” to which Hank will not be invited before announcing the guests of the night and leading into the phone call to President Obama by Vladmir Putin (Jimmy Fallon) who afterwards talked to Sarah Palin (the video clip is below).
Dennis Leary, whose movie Draft Day opens in theaters next Friday, is welcomed by the audience. This guy does not seem to ever age! They talk about the cancer benefit Leary hosts called “Comics Come Home” in Boston. Jimmy Fallon’s father was actually a recipient of care from funds raised through this. Leary launches into a discussion about how kids after a certain age are abundantly embarrassed by parents including how the Obama girls are requesting the President no longer attend teacher conferences because he arrives in the motorcade. Heck, as Leary states, if someone’s father is the president, wouldn’t they want to make a big deal out of it?
Leary goes on to describe his experience the previous day at the White House where everyone was taking “selfies” with President Obama and as he fumbles around trying to figure out how to use the camera on his phone, the President is standing in front of him. He was speechless and left with a photo of himself standing in front of the White House.
After a commercial, the show returns where Leary talks about the show “Sirens” which is on the USA channel (hysterical comedy about EMT’s with the occasional dramatic moment) as well as his movies Spiderman 2 and Draft Day following a discussion about not being asked to sing as he mentions Russell Crowe and Kevin Bacon had been. A clip of the movie is shown with him burning a contract in a scene with Kevin Costner and Jennifer Gardner.
Cat Deeley enters the studio and talks about her new show about mediums on Hulu called Deadbeat. The show clip makes this almost a “must see.” An update on the Tonight Show Fingers on a 4X4 competition notes six more sales consultants dropped out overnight. Two remained this morning…Barbara Wilkinson and Pete Porzio. Jimmy Fallon announces that as of about noon, it was Pete Porzio of Frankfort, Illinois who was the final contestant standing and his company, Currie Motors, will gain the business of this talk show comedic icon.
Wrapping up the show is the vocal quartet group Nickel Creek performing their song “Destination” from their new album, A Dotted Line. Interesting sound…a little folksy bluegrass mixed with classical country.
