Remember Sarah Palin's appearance on Jay Leno where the crowd cheered and laughed at Palin's spin and lies and sad attempts at stand-up comedy (shudder)? Faked.

A sound engineer who attended the taping says the positive response from the audience was all added later, and the actual response in the room that night included, "groans, hoots, grumbling, or just dead silence."

As always, Palin is all about being "real."

And then there's the report that Palin and her entourage descended on the Oscar swag suite (apparently a room where rich people can go and get a lot of expensive things for free because of.. the Oscars, I guess) and basically cleaned the place out of jewels (JEWELS?!?), watches, and fancy hairdos.

"They were like locusts," an unnamed vendor said.

The Los Angeles Times reported Palin was supposed to donate all of her gift items back to the Silver Spoon Oscar Suite for auction, as well as $1,700 of her own cash, in support of Red Cross efforts in Haiti and Chile.

But E! Online insisted, "we can assure you she did not give up any of her swag."
