Posted on 02/25/2011 2:40:19 PM PST by pissant
Washington (CNN) -- Politics is serious business, but not all the time.
Sar-ah! Sar-ah! Sar-ah!
Jerry Springer is known for a lot of things -- from being the former mayor of Cincinnati to ringmaster of an outlandish talk show where smackdowns are more common than humidity on South Beach.
Now Springer can add another title: FOS (friend of Sarah).
Well, sort of.
"I don't want her to be president," Springer told radio station WABC. "I don't agree with her views. But I would never say anything mean about her. I think she is incredibly charismatic. I think she takes her religion very seriously and her views very seriously. I don't think there's anything mean-spirited about her."

It could be a setup. Springer appeals to the lowbrow daytime crowd almost indistinguishable from Oprah and the Talk. No reason for any of them to diverge from their formula unless it is a setup. Think of it this way: if Springer advocates in favor of Palin for a while, and then does a reverse and begins to disparage her later, what does he lose? Nothing. What does he win? More publicity and more notoriety. And likely even more lowbrow viewers. Also Palin’s detractors could forever afterwards say that she is trying to appeal to her trailer trash by appearing on Springer and that proves it. They would only say this on highbrow shows which would otherwise lock out a neutral interview of Palin.
Must stink to have to agree w/DNCNN.
Pray for America
EWWW-WAH! If Palin were to appear on the Springer show.....she’d have to fumigate afterward. I’d be afraid of catching something on that set.
“...pissant...you are not the father!”
I have to admit it is a nice strategy to pretend to be a Bachmann supporter while attacking Palin. You get to avoid the zot, at least for a while. You were able to salvage a shred of credibility, especially after your feelings about the right of women to vote and a female president was made public. Bachmann has a lesser chance of winning the nomination, so you win anyway.
I don’t pretend to like Bachmann. She’s a conservative. I have no reason not to like her. But I also like DeMint and Cain and Bolton. Any combination or those will suit me just fine. Palin has a liberal streak a mile wide. She’s McCain in a skirt.
I mean, really, that’s not an endorsement. And I wouldn’t expect one, anyway. He’s a Democrat. He was a Democrat mayor of Cincinnati. I’d be shocked if he endorsed any Republican, let alone her. He’s just saying, look, she seems like a good, decent person and I have better things to do than crap on her just because I disagree with her on politics. Good for him.
Just wanted to show my support for you.
Palin is no role model for teenage girls. Now she’s putting her own political ambition ahead of raising a disabled child.
(Not much of a mother).
She’s been made a laughing stock by all of her opponents, and she’s already been on a losing ticket.
She can help rally the troops, but we don’t need her on the ticket.
What kind of “streak” do you have, posting hit-pieces on a regular basis from the likes of polutico and cnn, on FR. These are not even legitimate articles, but factually inacurate, blatant propaganda pieces from journOlista types. Ben Smith should give you a commission for posting his DNC attack pieces on FR, where normally it is not tolerated.
Yeah she should just killed the kid, huh? You people really are stunningly pathetic.
pissant is obsessed with hatred for Palin. Don’t bother asking any serious questions of the rodent he has no ability to answer direct questions. You’ll have better luck getting a straight answer from a Wisconsin Teachers Assn spokesperson.
Uh oh! The Anti-Palin crowd and now the “moralist” crowd have joined in unison. I remember when they (the moralist) said that Todd Palin wasn’t a real man but a wimp and was not doing his role as a father to his children.
Pissant has a long ways to go to even come close to matching one-fourth of the copious amounts of Sarah Palin worship threads posted here daily by her fan boys. "News" (PR) from friendly media, direct Facebook posting from Palin's page, Palin-supporting blogs, threads about what show she's about to be on, random articles that mention her in a positive manner, donation requests for SarahPAC, etc. All this Palin fluff and still it's whine, groan and complain whenever the once-in-a-blue-moon negative posting about St. Sarah gets into the never-ending 'Palin' popular keyword.
(Oh, and it's supporters of other potential presidential candidates that "spam" with puff pieces, right...)
No she shouldn’t have killed the child. Where did you get that idea from? She should devote at a minimum the next several years to give that child the most love and attention that a good mother can give.
I am sure there will be a number of libtards rushing to his support, to post tabloid type articles about Palin on FR. What a way to propagate the tabloid caricature of Palin on this forum. Apparently she is too liberal for him that is why he is posting this baloney.
Probably hoping to somehow denigrate Palin by associating her with a guy known for being the host of a stupid TV show featuring the underbelly of U.S. society and passing it off as entertainment.
Well, Pissant watches him...
With your type of postings, you actually do a dis-favor to Michele Bachmann. But the truth is you don’t really care about that, do you?
pissant and Springer of the same mind - who’d a guessed it?
I just tell the truth. If people want to cling to Palin, pretending she’s some kind of staunch conservative, that’s their problem.
The truth?? that somehow Springer is a friend of Palin? Hence because of that supposed association that Palin is Springer show material?
You’re pretending to be a conservative! most conservatives don’t post liberal trash, if they do, its to make fun of it or ridicule it
You don’t - you feel comfortable hanging around the liberal crowd and the newsmakers
It’d be a step up from her Kate plus 8 and Oprah appearances.
Let’s see, so when you trash semi-conservative Huckabee or Daniels or RINO Mitt, you are just being an honest broker. When people far more conservative than you, toss Palin into the same weeds with those clowns, then it must be because they are only pretenders. After all, what conservative would possibly take issue with LOST, Amnesty, Title IX, repealing DADT, TARP, or global warming.
Springer didn’t make Palin, he can’t unmake her. You idiots in the media need to learn this.
Nobody from the left can fabricate or concoct any scheme to destroy her image. They are powerless, and fraudulent tactics only weaken their standing.
She’s been Quayled beyond repair.
funny but the people in Long Island didn’t think so.
Pissy does tabloid.
A new low.
CYa curb....he’s doubling down.....
“She should devote at a minimum the next several years to give that child the most love and attention that a good mother can give.”
None of your business, really.
They can do a Baby Daddy show with Levi and Bristol!
Political Circus: Jerry Springer to
Palin's pissant's rescue
Pissant: Proving daily why he is the most despised and ridiculed poster on FR.
It's a delight reading your threads, you get about 2-3 people (nutjobs like yourself) who agree with you while everyone else sees you for who you are: A total nutcase who defiles the conservative cause.
