Tonight, Sarah Palin will be talking about tea partying and writing notes on her hand with Jay Leno, and Mitt Romney will be with Letterman discussing the economy and mixing it up with rappers on airplanes.

I suspect I know who will win this particular evening’s ratings war:

Jay Leno made news when he announced that Sarah Palin will be among his high-profile guests when he returns to The Tonight Show next week (aka “The Jaysurrection”). Now David Letterman’s lineup for next week pits Mitt Romney against Sarah Palin on Tuesday night — and the ratings may well provide clues on which probable GOP presidential contender may be most popular.

One thing’s for certain: I’ll be asleep then — but I’ll be DVRing Palin. And it’s not necessarily because I don’t want to see Romney, but because I can’t stand watching Letterman do political interviews.

My guess is that Leno wins the night by at least 20%.

    No doubt Obama will soon appear on Hannity or Beck. McCain will be jealous of all.

    McCain's doing his best to keep Obamacare alive, isn't he? Jeez…

    I can't watch any of the drivel put out by late night. When Johnny Carson left the scene that was the end of the fun. No one on late night can even carry Johnny's jock strap let alone try to emulate him. I wish Palin and Romney would avoid these shows all together.
