Wow, Fox Fake News has finally just admitted to the world what a fake news program they have. Palin is to news as mccain is to youth. Speaking of mccain he must be just killing himself for picking palin from the redneck heap of losers as a VP candidate.

Maybe Palin can explain now why she was too busy to be governor of Alaska but is not too busy to become a media jock for fake news fox news.

Since resigning, Palin has had colossal success with her best-selling memoir “Going Rogue,” released four months after she left office. She finished a nationwide tour in December after hitting some of the political battleground states from the 2008 election and drawing thousands of fans.

I can understand all the hate for Fox news, so tell me, is MSNBC any different? They have a leaning towards the left. Why would they make a news show for a woman whose only salient fact is that she is a lesbian?

If you don't like Fox news, then don't watch. I am not a shill for Fox news, and can honestly say I think someone like Hannity is an idot. But at least with Fox, I do get to hear an opposing opinion. I'd like to see that on Olberman or Hardballl once.

The truth of the matter was summed up nicely.

If she were to seek the presidency, her new job would provide yet another stage from which to advance her conservative platform. Former Arkansas Gov Mike Huckabee, who sought the presidency in 2008, also hosts a talk show on Fox News and hasn’t ruled out another run for president.

Whenever Palin comes up, I'm always amused to see the comments by all the libs springing up out of the woodwork. Based on these comments, I have to think she must be the most despised woman in America. I always ask, what has she done to deserve such hatred and vitriol. The libs seem to hate and fear her so much, its like by her very success she unmans them. The only other woman that comes close to commanding such venom is Ann Coulter. I have to admit, I'm really looking forward to the next Palin story, so I can see more nonsensical ranting directed her way.

Molenir,

Agreed, I also rather enjoy watching normally intelligent liberal people turn into blithering 3rd grade playground bullies in their reasoning and in their vocabulary in their haste to just hurl whatever insult and smear that they they can just at the mention of her name.

Palin's going to be a commentator. As such she'll be giving her opinion and not broadcasting the news. So if you listen to her you'll hear her conservative views. But those who watch her will be listening to hear her opinion. Sure there will be those on both sides either praising her dialogue or demonizing it.

I have absolutely no problem with her as long as she's not running for president. We just don't agree.

I sometimes go to FOXNews, I enjoy watching GlenBeck. I know what I'm going to hear and I don't agree with it, but by listening to him and Palin I know the conservative mantra. I don't adhere to it, but I want to be aware of it.

So those who go to FOXNews to listen to Palin know she's conservative.

I hope she does good. I might watch her. She's eye candy if nothing else. < :-)

Dumb just got dumber and funny just became hilarious.

The support of her few remaining fans who are vainly clinging to whatever shred of a reason they can find to support her shows just how desparate the GOP's predicament has become.

As we all witnessed in the last election cycle, liberals hate strong women. Look at what they did to one of their own: Hillary Clinton. She won 27 of the last 30 democratic primaries and yet still chose to back a man.

So, it makes sense that they'd vent their spleens at a female who's a non-liberal.

I don't deny his 789 billion dollar stimulus package has resulted in a 10 percent un-employment rate. I don't deny his health care plan will cost over two trillion dollars, I don't deny his cap and trade proposal will cost an average 3000 dollars on the average family in added energy costs. I don't deny the national debt has exploded under this administration and continues to grow.

These are his policies in effect now, not that 'spawn from Satan Bush's policies, but I guess as long as you think you can bang that drum your going to. America has moved on from that in case you missed it and the Dem's are in real trouble, ask Senator Chris Dodd, he saw the writing on the wall.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Sailwind, I see some facts that do not include Fox News propaganda are necessary.

Sailwind - "I don't deny his 789 billion dollar stimulus package has resulted in a 10 percent un-employment rate."

Fact #1: Obama's stimulus package, expensive as it was, saved the economy from going totally belly up. Had the GOP's 'do nothing' plan been implemented, companies like GM, BOJ, etc. and a whole lot of others would have hit the wall resulting in far higher unemployment that we have now.

Sailwind - "I don't deny his health care plan will cost over two trillion dollars."

Fact #2: As opposed to the GOP's plan, in which only a paltry 3 million more Americans would have been covered. The Dems have the guts to implement universal health insurance, and if you and your fellow well-off elitists think your poorer brothers don't deserve what you take for granted (for you in particular, thanks to your taxpayer-funded USN pension), then I suggest you take that up with them.

Sailwind - "I don't deny his cap and trade proposal will cost an average 3000 dollars on the average family in added energy costs."

Fact #3: Had the GOP remained in power, they would still be denying the threat of climate change from their mouths buried deeply in the sands of outright ignorance.

Sail, decrying the additional forecast "average 3000 dollars on the average family in added energy costs" over the future of your grandkids is about as low as you can go.

Sailwind - "I don't deny the national debt has exploded under this administration and continues to grow."

Thanks to the not one but 2 wars AND a global recession that started under the administration of the previous GOP president that you so ardently plea that I forget.

Sarah Palin appears to want to continue the policies of the bush administration - policies that are proven failures and that have pushed America into the most critical debt crisis in history.

I applaud her for taking this position at Fox News, as only the flailing few extremist U.S. conservatives who watch what passes as an excuse for a 'news' show will ever take her seriously.

The rest of us tuned out last year when she cemented her credentials as a quitter.

Good job, Sarah. :-)

SushiSake3 and for all of you who call Sarah a quitter and only going for the money. When Bill Clinton was leaving office, they decided to move to NY and not Arkansas where they were from. For those who don't know, Hillary was the first lady of Arkansas when her hubby was the Gov. and she was a citizen of that state, since her primary residence (the Gov. mansion, they did not own a personal house until they moved out of the White House). So, instead of going back to a state that at the time would have had a Senate election too, she choose to go to a state that she did not live in (if she did she was not a resident since the 1970's) and low and behold she was elected Senator.

So, if Hillary can go someplace for the money, and get a job as a Senator with no experince in living in the state of NY, why can't Palin do the same thing.

If you don't like her views, then don't watch Fox. Remember as many here like to say, Obama won by a huge majority. So, if that majority feels that Fox does not represent their views, then there is nothing to worry about becuase they have made up their minds about whom they are going to vote for, and not watch her.

I don't agree with everything Palin stands for, but at least I know more about her and can relate. She didn't spend her time at Ivy League schools and around the same crowd.

Wrong. Most of the impact to the current economy are from events that occurred 2-3 years ago. It takes more than a few months, and often several years, before the full impact of policies to make their impact.

As far as Palin goes, give her time and the microphone. She'll say a lot of stupid things, but those who love her obviously don't care much about her mental capabilities or situational ethics.

SushiSake3, Yes I know about that and I can't wait to read more about it in the book that is coming out.

But the bottom line is this, tell me what has Rachel Maddow done that gives her the opportunity to host a news commentary show? I don't even remember her being at least a field reporter.

I don't take everything that comes out of Fox news or Sarah Palin or anyone for that matter at 100%. But what I can say about Fox is that at least they make an attempt to present opposing sides (on most shows). Tell me, have you ever seen a coutner point to Olberman on his show that doesn's share his same viewpoint? And the last time I checked, he still ends his broadcast with the days since "The last President said Mission Accomplished." That was a decent "Schtick" back when "W" was in the White House, for awhile but now it is getting a bit old and tired. Giving this example, do you honestly believe that you are getting a balanced viewpoint from a show that is still digging at the last President.

Like I said, if you disagree with Palin and don't like what she stands for, then don't watch. As I say again, if the majority of Americans voted for Obama and what his party believes, then you will have nothing to worry about. She will not change a thing.

Her educational background is stellar: Stanford graduate with honors and a Rhodes scholar.

What she has done is attract many listeners and viewers on every broadcast show she has done from the time she started in radio in the Boston area. As they say, the proof is in the pudding.

Palin will initially attract viewers because of her name. Maddow had to do it through sheer talent alone, she didn't have the name. (But she's rapidly making one for herself.)

Sarah Palin believed Saddam Hussein to be behind the attacks on 9/11, didn't understand why North and South Korea were separate (the Korean War) and that she could not properly pronounce Joe Biden's name. The book contends that Palin was a mentally unstable person prone to wild mood swings, describing her being hopelessly lost in a "catatonic stupor" at one point during the campaign.

True. Bush presided over a $2.5 trillion increase in the public debt by 2008. Obama and the Democrats are set to increase it by around $5 trillion from 2010 to 2016.

If Sarah Palin would become president, there is no way she would preside over such an increase in the public debt.

To be honest, I wouldn't vote for her. Well, if she got the nomination, and it was against Obama, I guess I would

Well, then I guess I should just be happy that a vast majority of Americans disagree with you.

Whatever. People are so sick and tired of the demagogue Palin blurts out to poison the public. I wouldn't vote for her even if I were a Republican. She's just a mess.

Murdoch and his boys got a million new viewers since Mrs Palin joined the team.

I reckon 99 percent of these new viewers switched to FoxNewsNetwork to reassure themselves that Mrs Palin is still completely and totally irrelevant!

Just the opposite! Can you just imagine how much new material Tina Fey will have NOW?

Considering more Americans feel Obama is a failure, then those who think he isn't I don't think your majority comment is correct. Admittedly 47 percent think he isn't a failure, so its mostly pretty evenly split. I stand by my comment though that Obamas dog could do a better job as President, then the idiot we have in there now. He certainly couldn't do any worse, thats for sure.

She needs it. Her schtick was starting to get old. New material is always a good thing for a comedian.

OK, Molenir, you stand by your comment, and I'll stand behind mine. Sorry you think the President of the United States is an idiot, but I don't. I refer you to the statistics you yourself provided.

Have a great day!

Not as much material as the comedians who do Obama and Biden will have, heh heh.

Palin recently explained that now she knows that Saddam did not fly the planes on 9-11. Maybe that will convince the rest of the tail draggers who fly republican here that 9-11 had nothing to do with Iraq. Maybe. Some are still looking for WMD in Iraq.

No need to make more jokes about Palin really, she is a joke herself.

Let's be fair, Sarge. The major media outlets miss-quote and lie about Palin on a daily basis. Why should we deny Zurc the same right?

I think Zurc and Amrijap have a chance with their "alternative relationship," and we shouldn't spoil it for them ;-}.

Dude: "Do your own homework next time, Sarge"

That should be directed to Taka313. He's the one who didn't provide any links.

So, several organizations have given Sarah Palin the Lie of the Year award. Doesn't mean they're right. The fact remains that under the government-run program some people will be refused certain medical treatment/medicine, and will die as a result.

And a bigger lie would be Obama's claim that government-run health care will save billions of dollars.

But just to make a comment on Palin so as to make it fit, I think she would make the prefect commentator for FOX. Sort of cute, nice smile, as clueless as most other FOX moderators, etc...She has that down home twang which resonates (supposedly) with "middle American" and the heartland, regardless of the fact that her policies, as is usually the case from the right, harm the very people who are supporting them. But this is the most clever aspect of the right, even though I doubt even they are aware of it i.e., garnering support from those whose policies are not in their best interest. Anyay, okay, I've made my comment about Palin.

"Really? Which ones?" Do I really need to point them out? Most all policies of the right harm the very people whom support them. I can leave a LOOOOONG list if you like. They've persuaded the victims of their politcies to support them. Basically, it's like the slave masters duping the slaves themselves into thinking that they had their best interests at heart and the slaves falling for it. Sad. Pathetic and sad. Nothing new though. What else is REALLY sad is that FOX news, Palin, Limbaugh, Hannity, etc...are even a apart of any discussions related to ANY topics at all, as if they're credible sources of information. They're unfortunately given legitimacy.

Apparently she does. Unless she was hired to be the "moose caught in the headlights." Watch her sarge! She is the gift that keeps on giving. I now feel sorry for Sarah the doofus.

How appropriate. Now if we can just get her nominated for the 2012 presidental election, America will be a better place.
