Palin signs on with Fox News

By Howard Kurtz
Sarah Palin, who regularly rips the media, is becoming a television pundit at a place where she's likely to feel at home.

A Fox News executive says the network will shortly announce that the former vice-presidential nominee is signing on as a contributor.

Palin, who resigned as governor of Alaska last summer, will appear as a commentator on various Fox shows. She will also host an occasional program that will examine inspirational tales involving ordinary Americans.

Palin will join Mike Huckabee as a Fox contributor who was also involved in the 2008 campaign. The exposure can only help Palin if she decides to pursue a 2012 presidential bid.

At the moment, Palin makes pronouncements mainly through her Facebook page. The Fox connection would give her a platform on the nation's top-rated cable news channel.

Palin is extremely popular with her conservative base, which has fueled the sales of her best-selling memoir. But she is a divisive political figure who not only draws the ire of liberals but some Republicans, including staffers who deal with her during her run as John McCain's running mate. Steve Schmidt, a top McCain strategist, said on "60 Minutes" last night that "there were numerous instances that she said things that were -- that were not accurate that ultimately, the campaign had to deal with."

Hiring Palin could further boost the popularity of Rupert Murdoch's network among conservative viewers. The network already employs former Bush White House aide Karl Rove and former House speaker Newt Gingrich as highly visible commentators.

Sarah Palin is a controversial person. She spews out horrible things while looking pretty that just inflames her followers with vinegar and spite. Fox wants her to spout her lies and vitriol just like she did while campaigning. Fox loves to have these liars and haters on to keep the base stupid and fired up.

Your making her sound almost as bad as obama. Besides, who's keeping you stupid?

I encourage every one reading this blog to quit watching FNN like I have and get their news from credible news sources like AP, ABC, BBS, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, PBS,
The Washington Post, The New York Times or any other truly note worthy news reporting organization that does not manipulate facts and distort reason to report bull and biased opinion for sensationalism.. The more variety you have the better informed you become.

Well James, can't help notice only three news sources you listed might be questionable. The rest of your news is left wing. Nothing like large dose of left wing to round out a guy. Surveys show they're leaving your left winger news sources and going to Fox.

Hey Bridgebuilder#2,

You said:I personally believe that there are and have been many women who have demonstrated the knowledge and ability to lead a country and to do it well i.e. Golda Meir, Israel, Margaret Thatcher, UK and even some women Governors here in the good old USA, Ella Grasso from Connecticut and Ann Richards from Texas are great examples."

Do you have seperate standards for men and Women? If so, what standard, exactly, other than reading a Tele-prompter and being a "Community Organizer" do you consider so important? Did the President work his way through College--Did he ever have a Job. Was he ever a CEO or Run a state? He was the #1 Liberal in Senate in the the only year he could be evaluated as he was always campaigning and didn't vote enough to be counter.And, that is the truth. So please tell the Post readers what, exactly, are President Obama's credentials to run anything? Since your standards are so high I await a thoughtful response. Oh, did you read her book? Did that answer any of your questions? Or are all your facts from the n.Y. Times and Huffington Post.

Rarely have I been compelled to post a comment on a news item especially one involving politics (to each his or her own views)however in the case of Sarah my 67 year old brain cannot fathom how people cannot see her for what she is, to wit, uninformed or perhaps misinformed and not smart enough to learn about the issues at hand and to keep her mouth shut in the meantime.

Some folks say that all the negativity about her is because she is a woman and we are not ready for a woman in the Whitehouse; or because of party politics or not being liberal. My thought is that hopefully most people are smart enough to see what a lack of knowledge she has and how much damage She would be capable of doing if elected to the presidency.

I personally believe that there are and have been many women who have demonstrated the knowledge and ability to lead a country and to do it well i.e. Golda Meir, Israel, Margaret Thatcher, UK and even some women Governors here in the good old USA, Ella Grasso from Connecticut and Ann Richards from Texas are great examples. I would welcome any woman of their caliber to have a go at running this country I am sure that they would be up to the task and do a great job. Unfortunately Sarah Palin is not of that caliber.

Hey David,

How thought-provoking and intelligent statement of facts. Or, do you just prefer hate speech? You call Sarah Palin "Stupid, dense, no scruples, lobotomy, liar"-you are what most would call a Left-Wing radical extremist--but that is perhaps too kind. Please, be specific and tell us President Obama's "work experience". Training Acorn seems to be his biggest accomplishment. Care to make some specific comments on Sarah's book? You did read it didn't you---know thine enemy--right? Or are you just paid by Acorn? Second thought--let's talk about President Obama's seven statements that the Medical debate would be Transparent (Read behind closed doors) and on C-Span---does that make him a nasty old liar I ask you? Please Answer the Questions not just RANT!

Are people really so stupid and dense to not see through this woman. She didn't even bother to finish her commitment as governor of Alaska and people here are talking about her like she's some sort of messiah! FOX is a good place for a person with no scruples and a lobotomy who lies through their teeth to get what they want.

Genefox1 and Jeffwacker,
Hi guys,
Jeff, Yes, I am aware President Obama has been "Ruining" this Country for a year. He is a disgrace. I worked for a Senator, served 22 years in the "Intelligence Community and lived/served in four foreign Countries. So yes,I have a little work experience. Have you read Sarah's book yet---then, perhaps, you could talk intelligently about her? FYI, Being a Mayor and Governor brings more "Experience than being a "Community Organizer" and training ACORN how to register Illegal aliens. You guys must Love Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi,Grayson, etc., And,you have the highly rated Olbermann--what an honor. Why not talk about him? Is he your s next President?
I am Proud member of the Tea Party! Bet neither of you have been to one. Why, perhaps you can't handle the truth.

Amazing this kind of statement still makes the news. However, it could not have happened any earlier because of all the coaching this feisty brunette with a gleam in her eye needed just to get a shot at doing Fox.

Sarah will fit in well with the other bubble headed bleach blonds on Fox. Maybe we will get to watch her skirt ride up to her backside sitting on the big red couch in the morning or find out if she can read a teleprompter since we know she does not read publications like the Washington Post.

Although this is a worthy news item it belongs on page 13 under how to avoid getting caught while having an affair with your boss or guess how expensive my fashion statement is today on page 26.

I encourage our media to not lower them selves to the National Enquire, Starr news papers, or Fox News Network (FNN) level of reporting sensationalism/news and opinion for entertainment that will take up valuable public interest time on important matters.

We all know that the GOP and FNN will do anything to distort the facts and distract, the nation from what really is important like health care, clean energy, education, the economy or job creation and Sarah has now been positioned to do just that.

I encourage every one reading this blog to quit watching FNN like I have and get their news from credible news sources like AP, ABC, BBS, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, PBS, The Washington Post, The New York Times or any other truly note worthy news reporting organization that does not manipulate facts and distort reason to report bull and biased opinion for sensationalism..

I predicted this career move by Sarah Palin in a blog I posted shortly after she tendered her resignation as governor back in July. She is following the money and will continue to milk her celebrity status for all that it is worth. Her next step will be her own show on FOX News. She is the whole package: Attractive, plain spoken and quick with sound bites and throwaway cliches; the perfect conservative pundit. That she is a megalomaniac is beside the point.

Dude - Did any of that stuff ACTUALLY HAPPEN TO YOU?

BTW, Obama has run the debt up ~2 trillion (not 4) Bush added almost 5 trillion.

In 1983, President Reagan signed Executive Order 12425 allowing Interpol immunity.

Bush released more Guantanimo prisioners than Obama, including the cleric that advised the underwear bomber.

All the entities you mention were broke before Obama got here.

Need I go on? Bush wasn't the devil and neither is Obama. Everyone needs to chill.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Thanks for the correction but the amount spent for 2009 was actually $ 3.41 trillion.

Yes, Reagan signed the original executive order, Obama extended it's power.

Obama ammended Executive Order 12425. Interpol had to answer to the FBI and U.S. courts under Reagan's order. These safeguards were stripped away by Obama's action the week before Christmas without debate or explanation. Obama picked the holiday season to make this radical change minimizing media coverage.

(1) This order marks a significant change in federal policy and usurps the constitutional power of our government by yielding it to an international organization.

(2) Property and assets, including the organization's records, cannot now be searched or seized. Their physical operational locations are now immune from U.S. legal and investigative authorities."

That streak was your constitution flying out the window.

On the Guantanamo prisoners, it was and is a bad situation. Now the lawyers are involved making it even more complicated. I'll have to admitt I'll never totally agree with any president.
But Obama has had a part in all items mentioned. His responsibility is dealing with so of the worst prisoners.

I find it comical that so many outlets (MSM, cable cews, magazines, )cannot get enough of Sarah. There MUST be something about this gorgeous, conservative woman that brings out the best from the libs. Then you have those "comedians" who are so in love with her they dream of her often. Awwww, but poor VP Biden...well, yeah, he's the smart one. I find it hysterical when anyone says Sarah didn't have the experience needed to run this country. The libs better be very afraid because her turn will come. She's just fiesty enough to show you libs what leadership is all about. LMBO

I challenge people to name one real, concrete change that has occurred directly to them as a result of Obama's election (remember, the economy went stinko before he was elected).
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Change? We're almost $4.5 trillion more in debt than we were 1 year ago. Stock market has gained but unemployment has changed little. Obama tried to renew the assualt weapon ban immediately. Has tried all year to pass a very strick gun bill. Hilary has supported an agreement to control all weapons through the UN. An agreement was signed to give Interpol (an International Criminal Police Organization), the right to enter your home without a warrant and search for information. Obama cut off co-operation with countries in South America that had been co-operating with us after years of work. Obama released Guantanamo prisoners and "lawyered up" the rest. Now 74 of whom are active terrorist training hundreds to blow you off the face of the earth. This man has lived in a fairy tale that will eventually get ugly. So don't go boasting the sky hasn't fallen. (1) Your government is broke (2) social security is broke (3) medicare is broke (4) the US Postal Service is broke and money is being thrown away like never before. China will no longer buy our debts and is advising others not. So $4.5 trillion has been spent to stimulate government pockets and is now gone. Now we need to save healthcare? So 10% are estatic about Obamacare, the rest are concerned with good reason. It will take 37 new government bureaucracies to handle healthcare. Odds are you'll get less for more. Another bungle with healthcare like we have just experienced with government programs and your dollar will be worth about 10 cents. Maybe we should go watch some liberal news and make us feel good about ourselves. 70% thought Palin was lacking experience to run as VP. Now we have a guy with less business experience than Palin trying to run the country? We have nothing to export and our economy is expected to prosper? This guy has taken a down cycle and turned it into a disaster. We'll either endure staggering taxes or this will take decades to recover from. Can't wait to go to the doctor and see a dozen illegals in front of me.

@ gbooksdc: I respect your sentiments, and the spirit in which they were expressed. However, they could also be said of hired assassins.

In the case of Sarah Palin, your term "hateful" would be more accurately applied to her antics on the 2008 campaign trail. With increasing fervor, her lies and her vituperative rhetoric fanned fear and loathing in the masses.

One needed only to watch her eyes to read the manic excitement in them. Her perceived power was like a drug to Palin; she wandered - nay, hastened - off the reservation and wallowed in the glory of it. The American people are more deeply divided today because of her, and she played her game knowing full well what she was doing.

I'd just like to interject here that Sarah Palin is a human being with a family and friends who love her. Whatever her personal shortcomings, whatever her suitability for higher office, I think we should recognize that a real human being is being raked over the coals here.

Barack Obama, no matter what you think of his politics, is a decent human being, way more decent than the character assassins who post here. I find it difficult that the girl in the prom pictures or playing guard for her high school basketball team has morphed into some kind of monster. A partisan, sure. Happy to fulfill the traditional role of VP candidate as attack dog, yes. But there's the role and there's the actor, and you cannot confuse the actor with the role.

Someone asked who Fox would hire to make it fair and balanced, they regularly have contributors who take a whipping from the liberals who listen to NPR. I think there is often more balance among contributors and guests on Fox than on the so-called MSM.

As to Steve Schmidt, has anyone told him that they lost the election over a year ago and it was not just the VP candidate that caused that loss? The strategy was pathetic.

I think this is a good opportunity for Palin to gain experience as she decides what she wants to do in the future. Go Sarah!

This, combined with Palin's new place in the public eye alongside Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly and the rest of the Fox News team, ought to be enough to eliminate her as a serious candidate in 2012.

She's being hired as a television pundit...not a newsperson. A pundit? Really? In what area is she an expert? My dictionary provides the following definition of "pundit":
------
pundit |ˈpəndit|
noun
1 an expert in a particular subject or field who is frequently called on to give opinions about it to the public
-------
I'll repeat the question. In what subject or field is she an expert? "All of them" would no doubt be _her_ reply. But I don't get Fox broadcast or cable, so I won't have the pleasure of laughing at her daffiness. But I could see her and her family as the basis of a good sitcom.

Yeah, and you can bet Fox won't be hiring a soon-to-be-former Senator who is apparently fond of "light-skinned" blacks who don't speak the "Negro dialect."

If Palin is dumb, Reid's sub-moronic.

And what about Michelle Obama? She wants in the game too. Ever read her quasi-literate, fearsomely ponderous and laughably predictable undergrad thesis from Princeton? Scary.

In another article in the Post, Steve Schmidt, former McCain campaign strategist,is quoted as saying of Palin --"There were numerous instances that she [Palin] said things that were -- that were not accurate that, ultimately, the campaign had to deal with. And that opened the door to criticism that she was being untruthful and inaccurate. And I think that that is something that continues to this day."

Figures, given her rather tenuous relationship with the truth, that Fox News would hire her. They don't call 'em Faux News for nothing!

Palin is ultimate proof of what complete lunatics Republicans are and she joining Fix news is best proof what a lying trash that organization is.

But lets face it, US Media ranges from the Ultra Lunatic Right-wing Media, such as Talkradio, Fox Network, to the Ultra Right-wing Media, such as Wall Street Journal, CNBC to merely right-wing Media which is CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, etc.
And here is one of the Ultimate Con Jobs that they have played (on the American people) to get away with the above sham, the Ultra Lunatic Right-wing Media calls the Right-wing Media as being "Lefty" and "Liberal".

Now to be sure there are some differences between the Ultra Lunatic Right-wing Media and Right-wing Media, but those differences are about marginal issues at best, they are for show, they are just to get the uneducated to hate and blame someone else than the Big corporations and the Rich for what is so wrong with US economy, which are due to our Taxes wasted on Unnecessary Wars, a Gargantuan Military and not invested in our People & Cities - more on this later. So to be more precise for example there are the following differences between the Ultra Lunatic Right-wing Media (i.e, Talkradio, Fox, etc.) and the Right-wing Media (i.e., CNN, ABC, etc.):
Right-wing Media is for Gay marriage, whereas Ultra Lunatic Right-wing Media is not. Right-wing Media is not, overtly anymore, for Torture, whereas Ultra Lunatic Right-wing Media is for Torture.
Right-wing Media is for Gay's in Military, whereas Ultra Lunatic Right-wing Media is not.
etc.

So on some issues that have little to with what happens to the 99% of American peoples Taxes, there is NO differences between the Right-wing Media and Ultra Lunatic Right-wing Media, but there are differences between them on hot button issues that do not affect 99% of Americans but are for show, again such as Gay Marriage, etc.

And to be even more exact there is like 4 hours of not right-wing Media on all of US Media, them being:
1 Hour Oberman, 1 Hour Maddow, 1 Hour Ed show, Half an hour Daily Show. That is just about it. And even the above 4 sources will never criticize Israeli actions or call for cutting US Military budget down to be in line with the size of the US economy, etc.

Another immensely savvy business move by Fox.
This will jack up their ratings further...hopefully they have had a conversation with Palin that it is in neither party's interest to have Palin there as some "Palin 2012!!!" infomercial yammering away about Republican this or that for a few years.

One "Hannity" is enough.

It's probably a good sign for Palin and her adorers- some very big media consultants vetted her and concluded she actually is smart and articulate enough and can hold her own. I don't care much for her, but I care even less for the Left's predictable "Alinsky demonization" tactics.

And for the "Faux News" haters on the Left, well, guess what? In the last 10 years, Fox has become the bona fide 4th Network. It is more profitable than the other 3, and their cable shows - news and commentary - not only beat the MSNBC dwarf and CNN - but also stand as taking more and more viewers from the former "Big 3".

And rumors of Conan coming are rife, and they already have a well-received nightowl comedy.

The 5% of Americans who are true "Faux News" haters can still tune in to Olbermann and the smug lesbian....But Fox and all the folks they hire are crying about such Lefty disapproval all the way to the bank.

Don't miss the premiere of "24" Lefty pals!!

Fox is the place where her intelligence will finally shine through. All the other networks tried and failed to show how smart she really is. I wish the Republicans would have her run for president and pick Joe The Plumber for VP. They're equally qualified to run the country, I'm sure. These are earthy people with a dose of common sense, NRA memberships, and minimal command of the English language we can all understand.

The Match Made in Media Paradise:

A) She will fit right in at Fox. Lots of opinion, very little evidence, smarter than thou attitude, wild eyed glint.

B) Low expectations. Show up, smile, be cute, say dumb things.

C) Commentator. They can film her, edit her, refilm her AND even script her.

D) Schedule? What schedule? Since she will not have her own show, she will be able to drop in and out as her whims direct. By the way, she will never have her own show. Huckabee is reliable, The Ice Queen is not.

E) It's all about money. She's all about money. She been getting a News Corp check for a while. Harper Collins, Sarah's publisher, is a subsidiary of News Corp, which owns Fox news. Every interview, or news story re. "Going Rogue" was advertising by the company for the company.

Actually, I'm a moderate independent and I voted for Obama. I don't regret my vote at all. He was given a huge mess (unlike Bush) and he's doing as well as one could reasonably expect.

I would have voted for McCain in 2000, but his Iraq stance + selection of Palin was a nonstarter in 2008. I figured I'd take my chance on Obama - so far, he's made mistakes but nothing that has made me wish I'd voted for someone else.

Which was the followed by "The announcement comes as Washington Post commentator Joel Achenbach blogs on Ms Palin in a piece called Inside Sarah Palin's Brain, in which he reflects on some of her comments during the 2008 presidential campaign, including her apparent lack of knowledge about the Federal Reserve, why North and South Korea were separate, and her belief that Saddam Hussein was behind the attack on the World Trade Centre."

I challenge people to name one real, concrete change that has occurred directly to them as a result of Obama's election (remember, the economy went stinko before he was elected).
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Change? We're almost $4.5 trillion more in debt than we were 1 year ago. Stock market has gained but unemployment has changed little. Obama tried to renew the assualt weapon ban immediately. Has tried all year to pass a very strick gun bill. Hilary has supported an agreement to control all weapons through the UN. An agreement was signed to give Interpol (an International Criminal Police Organization), the right to enter your home without a warrant and search for information. Obama cut off co-operation with countries in South America that had been co-operating with us after years of work. Obama released Guantanamo prisoners and "lawyered up" the rest. Now 74 of whom are active terrorist training hundreds to blow you off the face of the earth. This man has lived in a fairy tale that will eventually get ugly. So don't go boasting the sky hasn't fallen. (1) Your government is broke (2) social security is broke (3) medicare is broke (4) the US Postal Service is broke and money is being thrown away like never before. China will no longer buy our debts and is advising others not. So $4.5 trillion has been spent to stimulate government pockets and is now gone. Now we need to save healthcare? So 10% are estatic about Obamacare, the rest are concerned with good reason. It will take 37 new government bureaucracies to handle healthcare. Odds are you'll get less for more. Another bungle with healthcare like we have just experienced with government programs and your dollar will be worth about 10 cents. Maybe we should go watch some liberal news and make us feel good about ourselves. 70% thought Palin was lacking experience to run as VP. Now we have a guy with less business experience than Palin trying to run the country? We have nothing to export and our economy is expected to prosper? This guy has taken a down cycle and turned it into a disaster. We'll either endure staggering taxes or this will take decades to recover from. Can't wait to go to the doctor and see a dozen illegals in front of me.

Fox has the ratings. It is a good move by Sarah Palin in view of the money and ample publicity for the years leading up to 2012.

For conservatives, Sarah is indeed a rock star.

I can see a scenario developing. Sarah will run for Republican nomination in 2012 and will loose. She will run anyway on the Conservative party ticket and will divide the anti-Obama vote.

The favorite comment from Palin's wingnuts is always something like:

"Ooo The libs have their panties in a twist. Go Sarah!"

..and that's about the most intelligent thing they have to say.

Well, I'm no liberal and that woman makes me wanna hurl whever I hear her name.

Sick Sarah -- a devious, populist, seriously stupid air-head is only popular because wingnuts think all reality is like a big episode of American Idol.

She knows all the right buzz-words to get the goobers all hot and bothered but couldn't even name the Prime Minister of Canada -- her closest neighbor -- yet she's an expert on Russia (and couldn't name their ambassador).

She's built up this insanely idiotic 'Mavericky Roguey' persona but mouths the same tired redneck crap we've heard for decades by the Bush-Cheney minions and their ilk -- and we can see where that's taken us today.

But, hey! This is America! If she can make millions off of stoking the fears, superstitions, and general paranoia of the goobers, then why shouldn't she? The wingnut rednecks NEED a Palin because it's just too hard to think for themselves, and Simple Sarah does all that 'too hard' thinking for them, while wrapped up in furs and Gucci heels. What a package! Vavoom baby! HubbaHubba!

You'll never catch old Sarah speaking above the heads of the lowest common denominator, while she puts down in a huff anyone who dares to speak articulately or with reason, logic, or intelligence. Why, "we should just ignore all those ELITE people with educations and stuff!"

She is the absolute personification of a 'curse' on this country, borne on the shoulders of a TV generation that despises anyone who dares to change the channel from Fantasy to Truth.

If she gets anywhere near the Whitehouse it will be because this country is one flush away from the sewers of the failed.

But do the goobers worry? Heck no bubba! With Simple Sarah in the Whitehouse they'll get to keep their .50 calibre Hard-Target Interdiction Weapons.

I just hope they'll have enough brain-power left to learn the Chinese they'll need to survive. You know -- the people across the ocean that have all of our jobs and will soon own Wall Street along with GM, Hummer, Wallmart, etc.

But hey! Simple Sarah knows all about China just like she knows about Russia!

Now there's a comforting thought...

I and all my conservative friends are "freethinkers" and can tell the truth from a lie which you all obviously can't. You did vote in Obama, the biggest liar of all. Folks, that is saying a mouthful when he is surrounded by only liars and cheats. By the way, if you want to see DUMB, check out all the stupid things Biden has said and done.

Those on the left who are slagging off on Palin, should keep their eyes open. Fox will provide endless free publicity for her in a very controlled environment with pre-written scripts and packaged scenarios, to put her in the best light. It will be a consumate marketing effort designed to make her a contender for the Presidency. What the media proprietors know for certain is that the vast majority of Americans will follow the sizzle rather than the steak. We love everything sugar coated and chrome plated. It doesn't matter whether the sugar or chrome is all there is, we'll still buy it. So Fox will sugar coat and polish the chrome on Palin to a dazzling shine that will blind all but the independent thinkers.

Those on the right should realize that in the case of Sarah Palin, there really ISN'T anything under the sugar and chrome coatings. However, I fear that you already know that, and don't care.

The Fox network will spare no expense to ensure that Palin WILL be a presidential contender, and if she gets elected, God save us all.

Any one liberal of conservative who does not find Olbermann a little bit goofy is not paying attention. the difference between him and beck is that he is goofy with a reasearch deartment. And Maddow is just a well researched commentator. She really upsets the right because she undoes their fantasy world with such ease.

And we still don't suspect the mental health of America - well, most of America!!

A nation that has FOX as its top-rated cable news channel can not be a healthy nation, mentally, culturally, emotionally and intellectually. Something of serious nature has infected and plagued America's mind and soul, and it's pretty scary - and now, to add insult to injury and to make the scary picture even scarier, someone like the immensely deep and profound thinker, Sara Palin, has just been picked to grace and enlighten the people of the world's only superpower with her brilliance, wit and wisdom, as a political pundit on its top-rated cable news channel. Lame doesn’t even come close!

Honestly, I can't and I don't trust, any more, the world's problems and issues, which are of great significance and volatile nature, to a people that have such deformed and limited intellectual capacity. What's wrong with you America? Have you gone mad?

And we are keen on stopping Iran from developing its nuclear capabilities because it isn't mature, responsible and developed enough to handle the responsibility of having such technology - not that I, in any way support Iran having nuclear weapons - but seeing how immature, unwise and underdeveloped we are as a people, all I have to say is: look who's talking? We sure got a lot of nerve talking and preaching about irresponsibility and immaturity.

We, having proved over and over and beyond the shadow of a doubt, to be not much different or more developed – other than technologically and militarily, from Iran and other third world countries, sure got a long way to go on the road to growing up. Let’s face it, we aren't fit to lead the world, by any sense of the word or stretch of imagination, but who dares to tell the Emperor that he's got no clothes on. Unfortunately and sadly for this poor, helpless world: Might is Right in this sad world of ours. The way I see us: we are like a baby with giant muscles, and God help those who stand in his way.

Nothing surprises me any more in America, and the thought of Sara Palin becoming a president one day, as absurd and horrific as that sounds, isn't that farfetched and crazy an idea any more, for hey, welcome to the new, infantile America, where any thing can happen - even the ugliest, most non-sensical and scariest of things. We aren’t only the world’s only superpower, we are the world’s super, mentally-underdeveloped baby. Let’s be honest and face up to that! God help the world and save it from what we can and may do to it, without realizing it.

Interesting to read these comments. Palin/Fox supporters see a litany of bad things that have happened since Obama took office. Obama supporters place all of this at the feet of G W Bush.

From where I sit, virtually nothing has changed. The economy was awful at the end of GW's term, and it's awful now. 9/11 and the shoe bomber happened under GW, and the underwear bomber in Obama's term. Obama's a big spender, so was Bush. Guns were available then, and they are now. The proposed health care reforms are minor - even insurance companies recognize changes need to be made.

I think it'd be best for the USA if people would all calm down and realize they are living in incredible circumstances in terms of personal comfort and ability to speak our minds politically.

I challenge people to name one real, concrete change that has occurred directly to them as a result of Obama's election (remember, the economy went stinko before he was elected).

And the most incredible thing is that the majority of Republicans don't seem to care. It's really astounding. I hope you people never, ever get anywhere near the White House again.

Sarah Palin is just one more reason to avoid Fox "Faux" News. Her posture of hatred of the middle and lower class, cloaked in a phony persona of populist cheerleading, will only hasten the downfall of the credibility of this farce of a "news" network. I'm not a champion of Bill Clinton. Far from it. If Bush was cancer, Clinton was at least pnuemonia, and my insurance doesn't cover either, since I don't have any. Neither am I happy with Obama's desertion of many of his campaign pledges, yet I realize that to have taken the chance at putting Palin in high office would have been the beginning of the end of this republic. She is all image, no substance. For about 35% of the public, that's enough! Why clutter up the airwaves with intelligent discourse? She is a pretty, soft-core porn wet dream for the legions of Americans who have been let down by the very team she captains, yet between gulps of beer and Nascar races, they cheer her on as though she stands for something. She is an empty suit, a cute, mouthy hypocrite. I say welcome to Fox News, the graveyard of what's left of the once Grand Old Party.

You had to know that she resigned as Governor only to take financial advantage of her celebrity status, as the darling of the extremist, out-of-touch with reality Right. I don't know whether or not she really believes what she says, but I suspect that doesn't really matter. She going to make money from this venture. And I'm sure that was her desire all along.

Well, the distinction is that Obama quit one job at which he failed to run for a promotion, at which he failed (and cashed in, I might add by being the first sitting president to sign a multi-million dollar book deal).

It's usually the custom to show some competence and accomplishments prior to running for higher office.

It is true that Fox News and their prime time political commentary regularly top the charts and Nielsen will back that up. They have in the neighborhood of 2.8 to 3.6 million viewers, equal to or greater than all the rest of the prime time cable news networks combined.

However - don't fail to notice what the rest of the country is watching, depending on the night. While 3 million are watching Fox there are 40 million plus watching Drama, Sports, Movies, Sit Coms, cartoons, SyFy, porn and yes, the other political commentary programs. And millions more at work, playing sports, reading or doing activities with their kids.

So try to put it into real perspective before you Faux Snooze Fans try to beat your chest with "the figures". I would venture to say that two to three million who regularly watch Fox News and Prime Time Commentary (Beck, Hannity, O'Reilly, etc.) represent the actual, total right wing voting constituency in the country plus us Liberals who tune in for comic relief.

Its getting a bit out of hand now... and Fox executives surely do not seem to care how they appear to the American public. I just hope the American public is smart enough to see through Foxes antics.

Yup. Otherwise known as dumbing down. Not only does it appall, but it saddens me. I highly recommend the movie "Idiocracy" - an all too disturbing, albeit amusing, satire on the direction this nation is heading.

As far as the discussion here on Republicans living in trailer parks or controlling Wall Street - well, both sides have merit, which is why the "country club" Republicans are trying to figure out how to wrest their party back from all those Joe the Plumbers out there. A particularly daunting task, since religious conservatives have permeated the party like a cancer. Can't have it both ways...

Sarah Palin can do a lot to raise the Fox News standards. She could use her vast knowledge of history to create a new history series: How man 6000 years ago domesticated and had dominion over all the dinosaurs and how he nurtured and cared for his newly domesticated pet dinosaurs She could show clips from the “Flintstones” to support her historical arguments. This would do a lot to raise Fox’ professional and accuracy standards.

charlietuna aparantly isn't aware that the colloboration between rich and poor is one of the benchmarks of Fascism. Even Hitler's biggest support base were the backwoods working class Germans, who, even after looting the jews, an illusory benefit, failed to get anything out of the ruling Nazi class. The collaboration between the rich and poor in committing Nazi atrocities is notorious. That is why liberals think Republicans are stupid. The strongest supporters of Repubicans are the poor ones who stand to gain NOTHING from supporting republican policies that are designed only to benefit the wealthiest classes in America. They have wholly purchased the right wing propaganda (LIES)because that propaganda strokes their egos and tells them it is OK to be uneducated, idle and vain. In so far as intelligence goes, America has to be the first nation in the world that rewards people for being stupid. Palin is a case in point. Read Idiot America: How Stupidity Became a Virtue in the Land of the Free by Charles Pierce which came out last June and of any books that should have had lines down the street for book signings that would have been one of them. The intelligent have been underpaid throughout history because money is not their GOD, what drives them is achievement. You claim to reward work but anybody who does the real mind work required in order to become an expert at something you despise. You hide your jealousy in your anti-intellectualism. This is identical to the anti-intellectualism of every fascist regime that has taken control of nations from Germany to South American countries who are still fighting to win their freedoms from the violence and oppression of the right wing. Imagine how easy it is to control the masses if they are all as stupid as Palin! So they make stupidity the goal and set Palin up as the role model for the most stupid of the stupid. lastly, being a hottie has NOTHING at all to do with intelligence, with being a good politician or commentator. I can't think of a more SHALLOW base on which to judge a person's ability for these tasks. But if you want the queen of stupid and shallow and selfish and pointless, that would be Sarah Palin.

This is the Trailer-trash and people who got their homes foreclosed, lost their jobs, etc. BUT, they STILL don't "GET IT" and will still vote Republican, to help out the poor suckers, who only make "$500,000 to $1,000,000 a year and up, minus their "bonuses"!!

Is this a new Fox Comedy show maybe a spinoff of married with Children? Should be a very informative show with loads of fair and balanced reporting. Maybe they could do episodes from different parts of the country where Sarah could see other countries and boost her foreign policy credentials. A few helicopter hunts would be very entertaining. They could look for so called endangered game to kill and eat. Of course each hunt would be followed by a cooking show where the animals are gutted, cleaned and dropped in a big pot to boil. There could be a reading show where Sarah would discuss her favorite magazines. There could also be an episode where Putin would rear his head and Sarah would bomb him into the stone age. The possibilities for this show are endless. The only problem is the unemployment rate may soar for comedians and comedy writers.

VICTIMS OF DEPRESSION OBAMA

here today from the British Daily Telegraph
describing Depression Obama in America:


"The labour force contracted by 661,000. This did not show up in the headline jobless rate because so many Americans dropped out of the system. The broad U6 category of unemployment rose to 17.3pc. That is the one that matters.

Wall Street rallied. Bulls hope that weak jobs data will postpone monetary tightening: a silver lining in every catastrophe, or perhaps a further exhibit of market infantilism.

US benefit claims hit 26-year peak
US unemployment hits 26-year peakThe home foreclosure guillotine usually drops a year or so after people lose their job, and exhaust their savings.

The local sheriff will escort them out of the door, often with some sympathy –– just like the police in 1932, mostly Irish Catholics who tithed 1pc of their pay for soup kitchens.

Realtytrac says defaults and repossessions have been running at over 300,000 a month since February.

One million American families lost their homes in the fourth quarter.

Moody's Economy.com expects another 2.4m homes to go this year.

Taken together, this looks awfully like Steinbeck's Grapes of Wrath."

Since so many in the Liberal arena have their head spin around at the mere mention of Sarah's name (just read down these comments for examples), her book is a runaway hit, not a day goes by without her being quoted by the big media - I'd say she's on the right track. Detractors can say whatever they like, but her audience and following just keeps growing and growing. I like and agree with most of what she says. If all you can offer are personal attacks, insults and other nonsense - odds are your point of view doesn't contain much substance. If the Left can hold Teddy Kennedy out there as an icon how can they then criticize supporters of Sarah - want to lay their personal lives along side each other for comparison? Either personal choices matter or they don't - it can't be both ways. If we're expected to ignore those for some, it should be acceptable to ignore them for all right? Instead of listing her perceived personal shortcomings, how about illustrating why her positions on issues are incorrect. Like it or not - we're all in this together and we need candidates who address our common concerns. Most people can relate to Sarah - the more she is attacked the more the support seems to grow, so keep it coming.

Ipak2000, Here is what your precious Sarah thought about death panels before she was agin em.
WHEREAS, Healthcare Decisions Day is designed to raise public awareness of the need to plan ahead for healthcare decisions, related to end of life care and medical decision-making whenever patients are unable to speak for themselves and to encourage the specific use of advance directives to communicate these important healthcare decisions. [...]

WHEREAS, one of the principal goals of Healthcare Decisions Day is to encourage hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, continuing care retirement communities, and hospices to participate in a statewide effort to provide clear and consistent information to the public about advance directives, as well as to encourage medical professionals and lawyers to volunteer their time and efforts to improve public knowledge and increase the number of Alaska’s citizens with advance directives.

WHEREAS, the Foundation for End of Life Care in Juneau, Alaska, and other organizations throughout the United States have endorsed this event and are committed to educating the public about the importance of discussing healthcare choices and executing advance directives.

Though this proclamation is now deleted from the Alaska governor’s website, it shows that Palin’s current fear-mongering is purely political. Palin is not the only conservative leader completely flip-flopping on this issue. Merely months ago, Gingrich too endorsed end of life counseling. At a conference in April of this year, Gingrich said advance directives can “save money” while also helping to “decrease the stress felt by caregivers.”

If you equate earning power with intelligence, I’m just guessing that makes Gilbert Arenas a little more intelligent than you.

Posted by: wgmadden | January 11, 2010 4:41 PM | Report abuse

OK, I've made a lot of flippant and stupid comments today. But I have to depart this scene with a serious one.

Sarah Palin is not so bad for America, and as a gun lovin liberal I like her a lot. But I'd never vote for her because I think she has a very limited view of the country as a whole. It's a lot bigger than Palin - or me, or anyone else.

We have a good country, but we all hate each other so much these days that we have nearly lost our sense of humor about ourselves. I used to work as a reporter and I know DC, and now I live by the border. You would think I'd be scared for my life. But no. I love to go to Mexico, but as I told the CPS guard at the border when I crossed back yesterday: "I love Mexico, I just hate drug dealers." So I challenge any and all of you who take any illicit drug to either 1. stop taking it, or 2. legalise it.

I work to support our soldiers and Marines everyday in Afghanistan and (less now) in Iraq. They are the best people in this country, and I think it is high time we all got together and supported them, even as we get them back here where the real action is.

After all, don't we have a lot to talk about, America?

Good luck and godspeed Sarah; I'll be listening and, of course, watching!

Her lack of intelligence, besides being shouted every time she opens her mouth, was evident from her needing to go to FIVE different colleges before she finally found one with low enough standards to graduate her.

Also, "decent" women do not get knocked up before they are married, as she did with Todd, and they also don't PRETEND to be Christians when their entire life shouts otherwise.

If she had a brain, she'd be dangerous, but there are getting to be more and more brainless people who are allowed to vote, which is why people were worried. Our country deserves an intelligent leader who can chew gum AND walk simultaneously!!

As you can tell by the comments here - the Liberals are out in force to knock Palin because they are scared to death of her and the fact that she tells the truth and is not afraid to tell the truth - a rarity with journalists today.

Up here in Canada, we can see Palin's house from our front porch!! As a Canadian, it is very difficult to understand how such a shallow person can go from mayor to governor to vice-presidential candidate, to potential leader of the free world. The mind boggles!! On the other hand, it was never far fetched to predict that she would end up on FNC. Sometimes, it is frightening for some of us fereigners to contemplate how really right wing American has become. Surely Fox News has dropped the 'fair and balanced' slogan with a lineup of shallow thinkers like Palin, Beck, O'Reilly, Hannity (without Colmes), and Huckabee. If they can bring Limbaugh on board, their lineup will be complete! They criticize other media for being one-sided but this is the most single-minded news source ever. In the end, they are preaching to the choir because most of it's viewers believe in God, guns, and guts and Fox News. America is a pretty scary country to live next door to!!! The rest of the world cringes at the thought of President Palin!!!

This is the next atrocity that the mainstream media special interest groups and political establishment are attempting to impose on America on behalf of the corporatists. By signing up with McCain, Palin has already shown that she will go with the flow in order to get what she wants for herself. Along with Obama, this is not the type of person that you want to see in the White House or on your TV set. True conservatives, who have been watching Fox because there was no other choice, will now turn their TV sets off and get their news online.

Another nut tree for the grove at Fox will make them all happier. They will have to work with or on her, because her handlers from the campaign days admitted that she knew NOTHING and had to be trained on everything. She couldn't even say Biden's name, he was O'Biden. She will have to pick between slaying salmon, shooting moose and elk from a helicopter, or chase them down with a snowmobile. Among the points to be decided is whether she will leave Alaska for the lower 48 or not. Money says she will not stay with Fox for long. They will tire of her and she of them. She quit the people who elected her just past the mid-point in her four year tenure, so this will probably last less.

To the comments about liberals being elitist and all graduating from an east coast ivy league college...

It is not only irrational to be offended by education, it is intensely counterproductive. While its true that education alone is a poor indicator of anyone's likability or personality, it is a strong indicator of job ability. Consider being offended because a doctor knows medicine, or an engineer understands mechanics. Likewise, insisting that a politician understand policy is not a liberal or conservative bias.

My primary objection to Sara Palin (and I suspect I am but one of many), is that she doesn't show a firm grasp of policy. She distorts and twists the facts to fit her world view, instead of adjusting her world view to fit the facts. Specifics? Consider the lie she propagated about so-called death panels. Consider her historical revisionism as regards to her own beliefs, as well as others. Consider the consistent rationalization and victimization that characterizes her public pronouncements (the media was out to get me, etc.).

Sara Palin is quite charming. As a neighbor I am quite sure I would get along with her great. But as President? That frightens me to death.

I think when a person says "All I watch is Fox", what they mean is that they do not watch CNN or MSNBC, and probably not CBS or ABC. Television news is, for the most part, horrible, unless there is a breaking news story and one wants to see what happens as it happens. Otherwise FNC is a bad news source, but it is better than all the others.

Because of her culturally acceptable physical look, many people give her an ear. All Surface + No Substance = just what America needs more of! God Bless still more counterproductive efforts of the right wingers!

Jealousy is one of the biggest causes of violence in America. Liberals need to develop a greater sense of self-worth and confidence.
I know it's hard to do that now, with the stats they've given us and the mess they've made. But their overkill of Palin is ridiculously obvious.
Embarrassing.

Hillary knows what Obama is capable of because he did the same thing to her and got by with it. It is not that easy with Sarah. The dirtier Obama gets, the stronger that Sarah becomes. She will beat him at his own game and win. The liberal media will be left in the dust when it is over, but they asked for it. The ones who don't bail soon, will be the losers.

The reason why Fox news gets more viewers is because most of them can't afford cable. So how stupid to compare the percentage of viewers Fox vs anyone else. Most of Fox viewers live in the boonies where cable lines dare not go! I'm glad that Sara is there because now her crazy views about religion will no doubt come to the for front. As a Liberal I not jealous of Sara Palin like I'm not jealous of Opra. A person like Sara Palin with the views she has should never be allowed a step into the White House. I am educated and continue to educate myself on a daily basis. This Woman's son was leaving for Iraq and admitted she should have learned more about foreign affairs,this she said while accepting to run for Vice Presiden; are you kidding me?

What I dislike about Palin is her constant put down of higher education, as if we don't need universities. The whole conservative movement continues to belittle the "liberal" higher education elite. Another guy did that long ago. Then he ended up in charge and actually closed all colleges, becauses, well . . why do we need that education anyway? Then he decided to kill off anyone with a university degree to stop the spread of that "Western thinking". His name was Chairman Mao.

The first thing these monsters do when they want power, is to get rid of higher schooling and thinking. The less the population knows, the easier they are to control.

Palin signing on with Fox...hmmm....

Given her hate affair with conventional media, for her to sign on with the propaganda arm of the conservative menace seems all too appropriate. In fact, her decision highlights the fact that to call Fox news "news" is a misnomer. Of course, Fox has been delegitimized as an outlet for real news and is anything but "fair and balanced."

From Palin's perspective, however, I'm sure she views Fox as the sole bastion for truth in the media. Any standard that starts with a set of preset beliefs, then cherry-picks facts to support those beliefs, fits well with her narrow world view.

The legitimate media, who Palin must consider to be illegitimate, is legitimate because it challenges her the way it challenges everything and everyone else. She will face no such challenge at Fox. The true media present inconvenient facts that are not safe nor are they comfortable because they require a broadening of one's perspective. This is anathema to the conservative world view and the reason why Fox has been able to corner the market on conservative clap-trap.

Of course, as a Fox News employee, Mooselini has just eliminated all chances of exposure (other than negative or derisory) on all of Fox's competitors -- both network and cable.

In other words, she has just limited herself to an audience of 1% of the American populace.

For someone aiming for the highest national office that is a particularly dumb (though not out-of-character) move.

For those of you who think her "words" were an SNL joke:
C = Couric S = bimbo better yet B for bimbo because of her diction.
C: you've cited Alaska's prosimity to Russia as part of your foreign policy experince. What did you mean by that?
B: That Alaska has a very narrow marityime border between a foreign country, Russia, and, on our other side land-boundry that we have with Canada. It's funny that a comment like that was kinda made tyo? I don't know, you? Reporters.
C: mocked:
B: yeah, mocked, I guess that'e the word, yeah.
C: well, explain to me why that enhances your foreign policy credentials.
B: well, it certainly does, because our next door neighbors are foreign countries, there in the state that I am the executive of. And there?
c: have you ever been involved in any negotiations, for example, with the Russians?
b: we have trade missions back and forth. it's very important when you consider even national security issues with Russia. As Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the USA, where do they go? It's Alaska. It's just right over the border. It is from AK that we send those out to make sure than an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right next to, they are right next to our state,

3/4 of the hateful comments about Barack Obama are laced with the critic's own ignorant prejudice. How sad that so many still live in the backwoods and have made no strides at all in conquering their ignorance except to be more careful about masking it and denying it!!

I would hope that there could REALLY be a next life, and all these perverts would have to come back in the race they so despise. Animals have more sense than some of these people.

Good luck to miss Palin- a carismatic mother which surely will surprise in future with more news.
I strongly disagree with some of her fews -I think they might change. I like her anyhow because I think she is autentic, not corrupted ,seems to have good spending control and does not allow anyone
to eat her up- a very strong person with womans soft skills. Miss Palin should be right there where things seem to run to much flopy flop.
They should bring her in- ive got the impression that she migth be good in cleaning up some stuff
No matter republicanians or democrats I
think It would be unwise to ignore miss Palins use in future politics.
the thing is very simple-. We might disagree very much with a person on some of his general fews but this does not mean
this person could not be a great contributer to development and ballance in the bigger picture.
She has not war in her heart.
and seems to be in her ay to be driven by
ballancing out-years in politics will teach her to get better.
Mister Obama who prooved to be eloquent
master in smart dialogue and interchange of ideas
and open chanals would be well advised to bring Miss Palin in - because of here experiance in administracion and her spending control. Her extra rounds in church or her fews on gay marrige or abortion ir other stuff should not count to much - because one thing seems for sure- in the area of her responsability things where not so nusty like in other places in the past.
In very general terms- no matter where
"Girls in charge"
they pull the trigger less-
But in a world where mostly men are in power it was always like this.
the mistakes from women count double.

And let's have a split-screen shot showing Charles's face IN REAL TIME as Sarah Palin graces us with her opinion. Since Faux News is really in the entertainment business, it might be highly entertaining to watch Charles struggling mightily to control his facial expressions as Sarah lays one preposterous egg after another. Not that I want something bad to happen to Charles (I don't because I keep hoping that he will be that THOUGHTFUL conservative voice we need, but so far . . .), but seeing him choke (intellectually, at least) from time to time could be fun.

Ah yes, The usual right wing drivel about "elitism". What happenned to striving to better oneself? The GOP calls it "pulling yourself up with your bootstraps". Not long ago, "bootstraps" meant going to school (college), working hard, and learning (and being open to learning). Now the modern GOP is about opportunism, hypocrisy, flat out lies (death panels, Iraq and 9/11, Iran Contra, etc.), shallow thought, fear mongering, and extremism.

If you lack experience or knowledge, you cannot make an informed decision or form an educated opinion of something. This is why it is so easy to dismiss people like Palin. She isn't bright or thoughtful, educated or sincere. She spouts off any thing that pops into her small mind and then gets angry that people point and laugh. Many of the people who watch Fox News are looking for acceptance of their extremist ideals through knee jerk commentary and misinformation. This is why Fox polls are always 95% or higher in agreement. No individual thought allowed. No information regarding facts or reality. Just smears, lies, and ridiculous fear mongering.

What is really amazing, especially after the mess Obama has made of this country, is the fact that these liberal loons think Obama is smart just because he went to Harvard on afirmative action because he was a black Muslim. They don't want to admit when he stuttered before they practiced with him how to read from a teleprompter so he wouldn't look so stupid. I remember plainly how he couldn't even put two words together without stuttering because he didn't have the foggiest idea what to say or what he was talking about. What liberls are really saying when they claim Sarah is dumb, is to hide the fact that Obama is a Harvard idiot like his brother who came on Larry King live here while back and even Larry King's patients was wearing thin. He kept repeating himself like Obama did the first two years during the campaign before he went into reading the teleprompter training. His brother even started bawling about how their dad was mean and abusive. He acted like he had the mind of a seven year old child and was talking like a crazy lunatic. He was trying to sell a book. I can't imagine anyone buying it. Obama won't even acknowledge his family, much less bring them in public with him. I guess he is ashamed of them like he was his sister, mother and grandmother. I bet Emanuel and Axelrod (the Chicago Mafia gang) really had their job cut out for them getting someone to train Obama to pretend he is presidental. Acting stupidly is about as educated as Obama gets. He has stupidly screwed up this country in a big way. Our children and grandchildren will pay that price for many years to come.

Yes you do need say more. Are the MSNBC commentators unabashedly liberal? Sure. They also base their positions based on actual facts. Given that Fox News was caught not once but twice in a single week of blatantly faking news coverage to further their political message they are clearly not doing news, but propoganda.

Adding Ms. Palin to Fox's roster only further solidifies the 'facts optional' spewing that Fox provides the uneducated masses.

What a comment upon the state of affairs today in the United States. Mr. Murdoch defiantly (and rather successfully) continues his crusade to dumb down the national discourse by lowering the quality of that which is offered us. At the same time he continues to ratchet up the amount of money he is making. Ms. Palin, apparently, continues to be oblivious to the inanity and risibility of her contributions to the public discourse Meanwhile the "conservative" bloc of dissatisfied Americans continues to grow, not least because the men and women who are elected to national leadership continue to ignore and evade their responsibilities to govern in a rational and non-partisan manner. It would seem that Ms. Palin and Mr. Murdoch care only about the money and not about the country. Australia's gain is our loss!

No surprise here. Sarah quit the elected post of Gov. in order to make a ton of money. Her window is only open a short while, maybe another 3 years or so, so she has the chance to make millions now.

Why not? She will never run for Pres., neither will Huckabee. For Sarah this was always about Sarah, specifically, how to launch her career into the mega stratosphere which she did.

So she looked stupid to most of us for a few months. Who cares? Her gig on Fox is going to be in the range of $300-500K, for the first year alone She will earn a lot more from public appearance and speaking fees.

She is preaching to the faithful. Ignore her.

Hard to understand why she picked a news outlet which just received 10 top media awards. While msnbc and cnn have ignored healthcare,acorn,racial insensitivity,bungled security and the fact almost $4.5 trillion spent on a stimulus package that only stimulated the government pockets. After all this time spent to discredit Palin her approval has steadily increased. With the sharp drop in liberal news ratings it's evident people just aren't buying what they have to sell.

Sarah Palin has not done anything for the party. She has not brought in any new young, or minority voters. She HAS gotten paid with that auto-bio that is so full of questionable info that it is now on sale on line for four dollars. She's divisive, and not very smart. She's still hung up on the President not being a U.S.citizen!! She's the perfect Fox contributor because she'll say anything, regardless if it is true or not.

I doubt that we can recover but harbor a little hope in spite of the fact that the education system is determined to ruin the country.

If she is not the next President, someone like her who is not part of "elite" America must take the helm. I pray that that person will come forward to get us out of the mess that the professional political class, academics, intellectuals and bureaucrats have gotten us into. The New Tea Party may provide such a leader. They must put aside their philosophical and policy differences, unite and return this country to its Constitutional foundation.

Here in Alaska we have seen the real Sarah. She trashed a respected Police Chief to further her own goals. She hid in the bushes beneath the window of a State Trooper (her ex bro in law) trying to get dirt on him. She denied her husband belonged the the Alaska Independence Party which was for secession. He belonged to the party for 7 years. She is a vindictive, mean spirited politician. More so than your average one. Oh yeah- pretty much all politicians use a teleprompter. This is nothing new, the same goes for czars. Calling heads of an agency czars was started by the Bush administration.

If I were a religious person, I would pray every day that Palin be the GOP nominee for president in 2012. I would also pray that Michele Bachmann (the right-wingnut from Minnesota) be the V/P nominee. Such a "team" would likely result in the worst defeat of their political party (republican, teabaggers, whatever) since Goldwater (1964) or McGoven (1972). However, as a nonreligious person all I can do is hope.

Demagogy is a strategy for gaining political power by appealing to the prejudices, emotions, fears and expectations of the public—typically via impassioned rhetoric and propaganda, and often using nationalist, populist or religious themes.

She's every bit as ignorant and ill-suited to be President as George W. Bush was.

A sorry state of affairs is churning in American politics. Rather than focusing on building America and addressing the self infected issues that face this country, Rupert Murdock the greedy tycoon of the media hires the slick talking immoral air head Sarah Palin who thinks running a nation is like she ran her home in Alaska. I guess America is now rising to the Middle America sheltered & conservatives who are arrogant & ignorant. They are consumed totally in the Football, baseball syndrome, they go to church every Sunday but their daughters can have illegitimate children; they cannot think beyond America's borders; they lack global education education & perhaps some of them have little or no formal education. What is going to come of America if immoral Sarah Palin will host a show to brain wash the ignorant. Rupert Murdock you are nothing but a loser to promote malice & hatred between the right & left.

Wake up America, Sarah Palin is a loser & only losers will follow her & buy her book.

She has! She let her underaged daughter screw a guy night after night in the Palin house and get impregnated. She won the governorship and then quit on the state! She ran for vice-president and embarrassed the ticket with her demonstrated ignorance.
Oh yes, she's done "something".

Since Fox News specializes in non-accredited journalists, she should fit right in. Journalism is a profession that requires more than studying at accredited institutions, back ground information checks and ethics, Fox News will never be accused of that. In the ratting wars, she will help them; in quality journalism, heaven help us. It's going to hurt. She and O'Reilly will make a handsome couple, or maybe with Rush or anyone else who can't define what responsibility journalism really requires.

When I hire someone for to fill a job position, very last on the list is whither I like them, or think they are cute. Of course I am human and those things do count, but top of the list is ability to perform the job. On the top of that list, comes knowledge of the subject matter, ability to reason, ability to understand and see different viewpoints, and willingness to work past the point of being tired to solve a problem.

Of course, also high on the list are things like temperament, judgement, integrity, etc.

The problem I have with Sara Palin is primarily that she has failed her last job interview for vice-president, and everything she has done and said since has re-enforced my perspective that she is completely unqualified on all fronts as President. People like her. She is charismatic, and a good public speaker. But these characteristics do not qualify (or disqualify) anyone for the Presidency. Quitting every elected post she has ever held indicates to be she is easily bored and flaky in fulfilling her commitments, just like someone with a job history of always quickly moving from job to job would in any other field. Being unable to answer easy policy questions, or contradicting herself/giving simplistic solutions when she does answer them, indicates she has a small working memory and doesn't understand simple policy problems.

But mostly I guess is that Sara Palin's positions shift according to who is asking and what is the most advantageous for her. She believed in climate change when Alaska was facing climate change problems, now she doesn't. She supported/lobbied for the infamous Bridge to Nowhere, then lied and said she was against it as soon as she joined the McCain campaign.

Is Sara Palin really the best that the Republican's can offer?

Very poor point. Juan Williams is closer to conservative than any thing else. He's definitely no liberal and not even a moderate. In fact, he's close to "Oreo" status for real. He fits right in at FOX. As it has been said before, discussions at FOX are between the "rightwing" and the "extremely right wing."

Reading the list of names in this story -- Palin, Gingrich, Rove, Huckabee -- Republicans, one and all -- negates any claim Fox News has to "fair and balanced" reporting. They simply do not give any real response time to others with different views unless they can raise their voices louder than Bill O'Reilly. And he's probably the best of the lot at Fox.

And, no, most of Palin's criticism doesn't come from men who are threatened by her intelligence. I am an educated woman who is not threatened by anyone else's intelligence -- and I am quite critical of Palin's "reasoning," when I don't have anything better to do. Which is most of the time.

Palin signs on with Fox News
By Howard Kurtz
Sarah Palin, who regularly rips the media, is becoming a television pundit at a place where she's likely to feel at home.

============================

Well Howard Kurtz.....did you think that Sarah would feel at home with the liberal/progressive Fascists at the Washington POST?

Howard there is a concept that you and your fellow liberal/progressives elite snobs need to start warming up to and that is We The People KNOW our free left-wing MSM wolfpack press is nothing more than a propaganda tool for the Democrat Party.

Only the extremely contaminated followers on the left think otherwise.

See you in November Howard and we can compare the "Democrat Brand" with the "Republican Brand" then.

Howard, Sarah is right about one thing....."our press makes things up".

Howard why not do somestories on racists Harry Reid and Bill Clinton.

Looks like Fascists at the POST have already scrubbed their website of that.......

Welcome to NAZI America......where the POST wants you to believe what they believe.............sad

It will only add to Fox News' reputation as a rightwing partisan station. To call what they produce 'news' is a joke. If Fox News existed in Europe, it would have been sued for libel by millions of people. They are nothing but a propaganda machine for the growing facist movement in America. The sooner Rupert Murdoch dies, the better it will be for the whole world.

No news article can be effective if the writer (or perhaps the copy editor) doesn't have a basic grasp of English grammar: "But she is a divisive political figure who not only draws the ire of liberals but some Republicans, including staffers who deal with her during her run as John McCain's running mate." Perhaps it should have been "dealt"?

Sara Palin scares the political machine because she threatens their power base. She took on corruption in Alaska and had over an 80 per cent approval rating. She took on the good old boys in the legislature, and the oil companies. The Republicans shut her up during the campaign, not allowing her to bring out the truth about Barack Obama. They will try to crucify her, but she will not back down. Wake up America. The politicians will do ANYTHING to maintain their power, and their aristocracy. Get involved. Let's get the corrupt career politicians out of office. Go to a Tea Pary meeting, or a 912 meeting. I am reading her book trying to find out why she resigned as governor. Maybe she is afraid like many of the rest of us, that this country is going to Hell in a handbasket, and couldn't do anything about it in Alaska. We need to take our country back, and maybe she can help us do it.

No president handles the job without advisors. She would have hers. I'm sure that Obama and Bush both had some OJT even though no one will admit it.

No surprise here but I'm a bit at a loss for the comment Steve Schmidt made about her saying things that were not accurate. If memory serves me correctly, McCain had a very serious problem with that as did Obama and Clinton. Unfortunately, this seems to be a trademark of all campaings lately. I suspect she'll do a great job and improve the ratings even more.

As to Fox, their actions speak far louder than words ever could.
