Ron Paul + Tom Cruise + Sex Pistols on Leno Tonight
Somehow "The Tonight Show" scored a trifecta of controversy tonight as they were able to book the most punk rock of punk rock bands, the most conservative member of Congress, and the wackiest Scientologist all to appear on its air in the same hour.
Tonight the Sex Pistols, Ron Paul, and Tom Cruise will all be in Burbank to tape the late night chat show.
Strangely, whatever wire service the LA Daily News used to announce this story, threw in some heavy editorializing in the lede of the story.
Texas Rep. Ron Paul will have the largest audience in his longshot bid for the Republican presidential nomination tonight when he joins Tom Cruise and the legendary punk rock band the Sex Pistols as guest on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." Paul, the only Republican presidential candidate to oppose U.S. involvement in Iraq, will attend a $2,000 per person fundraising reception in the Hollywood Hills after the taping, a campaign aide said.
Paul's "Tonight Show" appearance comes a day after his campaign began airing television commercials in New Hampshire, site of the nation's first primary.
The Paul campaign raised $5 million from July through September, with 78 percent collected online, The New York Times reported.
