It’s about time Sarah Palin got judged as an entertainer, since that’s what she mostly is. Last night on Countdown with Keith Olbermann, comedian/writer/Spinal Tap God Harry Shearer gave his professional opinion of the recent set of jokes the former governor of Alaska performed on Leno’s Tonight Show.

“All I could think of when I saw that was Bill Clinton on the Arsenio Hall Show, probably the first network gig he’d ever had as a saxophone player…” said Shearer. “It’s like that paved the way for this. ”

As for the routine, “I would fire her writers. That was lame material. Watching her perform I now understand why TLC canceled the Miss America pageant.”
