Sarah Palin tried to prove she is not made entirely of cold, frozen elk jerky by appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in a pretty freaking funny sketch about Vladimir Putin.

Full confession—when I heard he was doing this sketch I thought "oh cool, Tina Fey is pulling out her Palin impersonation again." But nope! It's the real Palin, acting out a sketch where he calls her to discuss how she mindbogglingly predicted (sort of) the current situation with Russia and the Ukraine. It's a cute sketch because as we all know, Palin can see Russia from her house and Fallon loves doing his terrible fake Russian accent.

Got to give it up to Palin for the flute gag, too. It seems Alaska's Mama Grizzly doesn't hate the evil left-wing media as much when she's out plugging her new show. It starts tonight.
