Van Susteren Rescues Palin From Saying She'd Like To Lynch Sandusky

Is there a single Republican presidential candidate out there who is interested in the advice of Sarah Palin? I doubt it. I have yet to hear any of them even mention her name. But don’t worry, Sarah. You’ll always have Greta Van Susteren. She trotted out Palin for more than 16 minutes to offer her special brand of insight into each candidacy. Later, Van Susteren "corrected" Palin when she indicated she'd like to lynch former coach Jerry Sandusky.

Sarah Palin Offers Her Special Insights On Qaddafi’s Death

I’m sure that on the day that news broke that Muammar Qaddafi had been killed, Fox News producers of the Hannity show turned to Sarah Palin because they, like so many of us, were wondering what Palin’s thoughts were on the future of Libya, the Middle East and the implications for American foreign policy. I’m sure it had nothing to do with the fact that Republicans made an immediate move to make sure President Obama didn’t enjoy any political success. So it must have been quite a blow when Palin limited her analysis to what amounted to, “We have to wait and see about Libya but in the meanwhile, let’s attack Obama.”

Jon Stewart Demolishes Palin's 2012 Campaign Scam

Stewart is dead on in his analysis that destroys any possibility Palin's campaign "indecision" was anything more than an attention-getting, money-raising scam. Plus, it's very funny. It also raises the serious question as to why Fox News has not fired her on the spot for such unethical behavior. But in the meanwhile, can there be any person on the planet more deserving of such devastating ridicule than Sarah Palin?

Occupy Wall Street Is Fox’s New Fair And Balanced Enemy

It has become obvious to even the most myopic and politically uninvolved among us that Fox “News” is treating the organic Occupy Wall Street protests as an existential threat to its very existence. Why else would the network devote so much time to portraying the protestors as the scum of the earth? Contrast that with the breathless coverage Fox devoted to promoting the astroturfed Teabagger gatherings. Why would the coverage be so different from one protest to another? Because Fox understood instinctively that the Teabaggers were already its core audience: low information voters easily brainwashed into adopting whatever opinion the Koch Brothers and Dick Armey wanted. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. However, the OWS protestors are decidedly NOT Fox viewers. Worse yet, for those who work at the company store in Murdochville, OWS will not be led by the nose into adopting opinions diametrically opposed to its best interests. That’s what scares the propaganda network the most. That’s why Fox “News” feels the need to do everything within its power to denigrate the Occupy movement. The same drip, drip, drip used to promote Teabaggism is now being used in an attempt to destroy the Occupy movement, at least in the minds of Fox viewers. It starts each day with those Foxy Friends on Fox and Friends, who set the ‘meme table’ for all the shows that follow on the schedule. Thursday morning’s “all hands on deck” call to trash Occupy Wall Street included—but was not limited to—such Fox personalities as Peter Johnson, Jr. and Eric Bolling. It’s worth examining both appearances in some detail. First up: Johnson, the Knight of Malta, who—at least according to Doocy’s intro—was brought on to compare this protest with other historical protests. This was not a history lesson. Johnson essentially delivered an editorial. Watch:

Palin’s Fox & Friends Colleagues Mock Her Announcement Not To Run For President

In yet another sign that Palin is on her way out at Fox News, her own colleague at Fox & Friends this morning openly laughed at her syntax during her discussion with Greta Van Susteren last night about the decision not to run for president. This is quite a contrast from The Five tip-toeing around their comments about Palin just a few months ago. (H/T Think Progress)
