No - but a review describes it as ‘Bawdy’ and the cover is rather risque.

do share;)

I was actually *mocking* the over-sensitivity.

It’s going to be a long couple of years.

TROTTA: Plus the fact that they can bank on the timidity of most men, who are so absolutely spooked by feminism that they’re afraid to criticize her.

Huh? Liberal "men" have made a freaking sport of criticizing her.

Fox news is not what they pretend to be.

Neither is Karl Rove. He thinks he’s some sort of founding father of a phony kind of Republicanism, remade in his image.

The extremism of Karl Rove is measured by the distance he puts between himself and constitutional conservatism.

None of these pansies will meet Palin head to head on substance.

"Only a fool or a liberal thinks Fox News is “conservative”.

Then there are a lot of fools and liberals right here on Free Republic.

And when I read their posts I want to puke.

Love that picture and notice how Sarah has her arms fully wrapped around Trig with her chin touching his head.

I wish I could find the video of Hillary Clinton when Bill was giving his concession speech (after losing his re-election for Gov. of Arkansas). Hillary had 2 year-old Chelsea on her lap - the poor infant was sliding off but HC had this grief stricken look on her face - she had no concern about little Chelsea. It was a perfect cameo contrast.

it was really more of a reference to your post (I’m paraphrasing here, so please excuse my not getting it exactly right). Something about weight lifting and adding more weight eventually you’ll be able to bear the weight of the world...

Bobby Jack made a bet with his boss (I believe it was his boss anyhow) that he could lift a a full grown bull by starting out while it was a calf and lifting it once every day - thus conditioning his body to be able to lift more and more weight gradually. Eventually the bull came to like the attention and was also conditioned to the daily lift. Regardless, there was a point where the bull grew too big and Bobby Jack could no longer lift him no matter how hard he tried. I believe there is a moral to the story in there somewhere... oh yes, eventually no matter how much you try some things are insurmountable (not everything, but some things), something about pride, etc...

That is what the media attempts to do - make the climb insurmountable. In this case, Sarah may just prove them wrong.

“Have these people EVER set foot in fly-over country?”

A little off topic, but I recall Laura Ingraham interviewing/debating some lib chick — I think it was the Code Pink spokesbabe. Laura asked, “How do you think people feel who are listening to you in the heartland?” Chick asked, “What’s the heartland?” Laura shrieked with laughter. All the libs are clueless about real Americans.

Fox News hires leftists you now. Liz, Judy and Ellis lean to the left.

True enough. The weekend programming is really stuffed full of them. Still, I'd bet a large sum of money that the Fox News powers that be wouldn't allow this same group of liberal panelists to mock their golden boy, Bill O'Reilly, for even a minute. The same courtesy should be extended to Sarah Palin, or to no one at all.

I watched the show. I can see liberals not liking the gun shooting and mountain climbing adventure.

Palin is Palin, she is real. Some people think Palin doing a reality show is a tacky as Obama giving an interview to Ryan Seacrest. Like it is unpresidential to hear or say the word, dude.

I enjoyed the show. The MSM love to diss Palin nothing new here.How the independents view her is what counts. I got ill watching Romney chum it up for a 2012 bid dismissing RomneyCare. Yet...I have heard some Independents (not myself) like his economics.

Right. Fox is just hiring and presenting libtards with a huge fear and grudge against Sarah Palin, they seem to be hiring no-name talk show Leftists and out-right Marxists like that fast-talking babbler O’Reilly features: Marc-Lamont-Hill. That guy has nothing valid to spew.

As for Trotter and Miller. Trotter apparently has no shame and Miller is a snob’s snob with that teenage smile always pasted on her face. Grow-up Judith or go back to the NYT.

Since Freepers are now calling and e-mailing Fox News expressing outrage that Liz Trotta would say such a thing, I'd be interested in your source for this information. The only reference I can find by Googling this is your own post here.

Put on the glasses. Fox News is not a conservative network.

It's to the right of CNN but CNN in America to the right of CNN Internationale.

Nothing new from Trotta. She's made it very clear from the start that she can't stand Palin.

She's another elite....Rove and Perrino are the same way. None of them like what Palin represents to their future as leaders of OUR party!

Judith Miller is a liberal.

Ellis Henican is not only a liberal, but a particularly odious one.

Liz Trotta has been on record as a Palin-basher for over a year. Plus, she once had to apologize for suggesting Obama be shot, so discretion is not her strong suit.

Scott doesn’t say anything in this clip that is out of line or even negative.

So, I don’t see why this is considered news.

Moreover, The Other McCain is losing it if he thinks it’s a violation of “Fair and Balanced” for this to happen. If the idea is that Fox has to find people who are liberals but love Sarah Palin, good luck with that.

I agree with you. Karl Rove has his own interests and his do not include supporting CONSTITUTIONAL CONSERVATIVES.

He’s big-tent GOP, and Tea Party Republicans, not very much.

I was going to watch the show out of curiosity, but forgot it was on. My husband and I were happily surprised to turn on the tv just in time to catch the repeat. We were glued to the tv and I was shocked at how good it was. If anything, I thought it helped her look more presidential. I wasn’t for a presidential run for her because I thought the opposition to her would be too great. Now I’m not so sure after this first episode.

Being on a TV set like that is weird. I don't care who you are it is another planet. The bright lights, all the people hanging around and listening. It is a lot of things but the main thing about TV is that it is FAKE. Hardly anything is contrived or unplanned. There is a big disconnect between what happens when the cameras are on and when they are off.

The people you see in this video clip are, in essence, actors. They are working off a script while things are being broadcast or taped. It is when there are breaks that you get a chance to see what they are really like. Many times these folks are nothing like what they appear to be on camera.

The best people on TV and radio are those that are being themselves. Those that think for themselves and speak for themselves. This is why Ronald Reagan was so successful. This is why Rush Limbaugh is so successful. And also why Sarah Palin is so well received. The camera never blinks and after a period of time you can see what the person is about.

Obama is horrid on TV without a script. They say how smart he is but the man can't think on his feet. He just does not have the skill. Others, like Bill Maher show their true colors. As does Chris Matthews. There is a reason they are not watched much. Most people just don't like them.

The people in the Fox video clip are typical of some of the "B" list people on TV. They just don't have "it" but they can fake it good enough to be on TV. They do OK if they can read the script and play their part. These types HATE anyone on the "A" list. So it is no surprise that with all the success that Palin is now having that they joke about her. It is human nature or in this case the nature of TV "personalities". These marginal folks can't help to tear Palin down. That is the only way they can come close to being where she is they think. By bringing her down to their level in their own little brains.

The funny thing is that as these folks were all sitting there during their little break if Palin walked on to the set they would all be kissing her butt. Doing anything to get her attention. Then after she left they would be right back to trashing her. Small minds.

Yes, Jon Scott is a sort-of surprise. I’ll tell you another one to watch and listen to closely; Bill Hemmer. I have recently noticed that EVERYTIME the subject of an article they are covering pertains to anything that remotely indicates a victory or something good for Republicans or the conservative right. He always manages to deprecate it in some fashion, either with a sneer or a knowing patronizing smile or some kind of remark.

Interesting how it was the women who were very catty about the Palin show while the mean merely sat there and smiled a bit. Once the woman in blue (didn’t get her name ... didn’t think it was worth the effort) realized that the men weren’t playing along she got serious again. I find it very telling that it has been women who are leading the nasty attacks on Palin. I’m thinking jealousy is behind it.
