Watch out President Obama!

Sarah Palin was so damn likable on The Tonight Show last night,  Mar. 2, she’s definitely capable of seducing the country into voting for her, even if she still doesn’t know who the President of Russia is!

Here’s the deal — the woman has charisma, stage presence AND she’s still drop dead gorgeous — even in her own non-designer clothes. Jay Leno cleverly had Sarah do her own “monologue,” so she could poke fun at Alaska, the federal government and Tina Fey; not so much at herself.

This is about as far as she went in making digs about herself : On watching the closing ceremonies of the Winter Olympics, she joked that “the minute I saw the giant moose, I thought, ‘I haven’t cooked the kids dinner!'”

Nevertheless, she manages to make cutting taxes sound easy, headlining at the NRA convention sound sexy, and reforming health care ,sound ridiculous. In other words — she’s completely capable of making us forget why Obama got elected in the first place. If she can make doing Leno look easy, I can just tell — she’ll convince a lot of desperate people that she can can make running the country look easy!
