It's not as if Fox News' Saturday business shows are really about business but the facade may have been permanently shattered by the arrival of Sarah Palin on this morning's Cashin' In. Today's "insights" included her response to whether or not we can trust the IRS and/or the federal government. "Is a bear Catholic? Does the Pope live in the woods?" she answered.
Although the usual format of Cashin' In in a panel discussion, Palin, probably too cowardly to engage in any real debate, got about eight and a half minutes for softball questions designed to provide her openings for her usual trash talk about President Obama, his "fundamental transformation of America," blah, blah, blah.
The clock is ticking on Palin's last stand. I predict she won't last a year at Fox.
They used enough of it to mock them. Its just as offensive as saying “even that nig…even that black guy” or “even that fagg…even that gay guy”. Both are insinuating that you really wanted to use a derogatory term.
And defending him posting it is defending him saying it. And Newshounds is just as bad for allowing it to stand.
Sarah Palin was born to a family of modest means.
She worked as a waitress and janitor cleaning office buildings to pay for her college. She did not marry a wealthy or famous husband.
She attended five different colleges — allegedly leaving one after one semester because “there were too many brown people on campus” — before getting a BA in communications.
She married an oil rigger/snowmobiler who quit his job in order to ride her gravy train.
Point B. Sarah Palin today.
She is wealthy. She has written two best sellers (New York Times list) that had earned her millions of dollars. She’s a sought-after speaker in big conservative venues such as CPAC and NRA.
She got wealthy by grifting first the people of Wasilla, the people of Alaska, the Republican Party (who gave her a $150K wardrobe she has yet to pay for), Fox News (who built a studio in her home), TLC (which didn’t renew her reality series after 9 episodes), and finally, rubes like you (and continues to do so.)
She also got many Congresspersons elected to the House.
Which is why she could affect the direction of the legislative branch of our government.
Sarah Palin today is the ultimate kingmaker in the GOP politics
In 2010, Palin endorsed 64 total candidates; slightly over half 33 won — and the majority of those endorsements came after the candidate was already comfortably ahead.
This is not being a “kingmaker” — this is called betting the odds . . .
Why do you think Fox hired her back within a few months after they parted ways if she is not a consequential person?
Fox was unable to make hay with Benghazi, the IRS, or the AP phone “scandals” (it didn’t help when some GOP politicians openly admitted there were no scandals); as a ratings boost, they needed to fall back on the tried and true: a semi-attractive idiot [Palin] bleating to other idiots.
Why her support from the working stiffs like me is deep and eternal? That’s because she is and always be one of us.
Unless you’re as rich as she is — which you noted in “Point B”, above — she is not one of you (except in lack of critical thinking skills, of course.)
I find it amusing that the same people who regularly claim progressives “worship” President Obama as “a Messiah”, exhibit much of that same fervor when it comes to Lady Blah Blah.
P.S. This is my last word and I won’t be back and waste my time to “scatter pearls before swine.”
TRANSLATION: I’ve done my duty for my Queen — and earned my five cents from the Kochsucker Brothers (which I will happily contribute towards her nonexistent 2016 campaign.)
Even her retar… even her mentally challenged son. "
Can you see now? That is offensive. The poster was “pretending” like he was about to call her son a “retard”. That is mocking and it is disgusting. Even more outrageous is Newshounds allowing it to stand and posters defending it.
All she is accomplishing is scoring points with feeding the raw meat to the right wing extremists while losing with the moderate and independent voters who have her figured out.
I’ll tell you what….just give us a few examples of the things that Palin and her AWESOME Republican party have done recently for the rest of the ‘special needs’ children of our country. As far as I’m concerned, the whole Palin brood is ‘special needs’……
And the wingnut belief that Failin’ Palin’s return to Faux Noise has liberals up a wall is pure delusion (something they’re really good at). We need all the comedy relief we can get, and Wailin’ Palin will provide plenty of it.
That’s the statement from
You guys can continue to rant but Sarah Palin is back to
(And as for “mocking,” what AAP said hardly qualifies as “mocking”—except to the fans of the Quitta whose own vocabulary skills are little better than their idol’s. AAP pointed out a fact about the “flat tax” that the Quitta herself didn’t actually seem to know.)
Rick/Tawny is back.
Why us Lord?
Is Lady Blah Blah still hooked on cocaine and Adderall?
A woman who, as mayor of a town of 5,000, took it from ZERO to over TWENTY MILLION DOLLARS IN DEBT . . . is now a “business pundit.”
