Sarah Palin, The Hit of the Party in Hollywood

Sarah Palin generated such a huge interview scrum that it threatened to leave the actual NBC stars ignored.

~ TV Critic Alan Sepinwall via Twitter

Sarah Palin was the hit of NBC’s annual Summer party at the Television Critics Association Summer press tour. NBC was holding it’s annual event to showcase it’s new season.

Todd, of course, is a contestant on Stars Earn Stripes a program that teams a star up with a member of the military, and the two take part in training exercises similar to what one does in the military. The teams are all competing for charities that benefit military and police.

As always, Sarah is the star in whatever room she’s in, and when among liberals, even they can’t wait to be around her.

As expected, this got a lot of media attention. We’ll start with the [snip]

She looked like a star, too, in designer sunglasses, green hip-hugging dress, and platform gladiator shoes. Surrounded by packs of reporters around the pool of the Beverly Hilton hotel, which features vintage photos of stars from Hollywood’s golden age along all its halls, she seemed to fit right in.

I got as far as that and stopped as I see the intent here - trying to make her into a celebrity and NOT the SERIOUS Patriot and political force she is. Scr*w'm.

"The trivialization for 2016 is starting early..."

That's what you got out of their efforts? Even though I've learned to hate many reality shows (Big Brother, Kardashians, Jersey Shore, et al crappola), this one sounds kinda good. Of course, it won't last.

I don't think Palin is going to run for another office. She will be a major pundit for conservatism for some time, but I believe she knows she has been damaged due to biased media. She is a bright woman who can see what is possible and what is not.

"Mrs. Palin, the former Alaska governor and the former Republican vice-presidential candidate, was on the scene because her husband, Todd, does star in an upcoming NBC series, a reality competition show called “Stars Earn Stripes,” which pairs celebrities with special operatives from the Navy SEALs and other elite first-responder units, in contests designed to emulate missions. The winners get cash prizes for charities."

I abhor so many reality shows, but this one sounds worthy of watching. On NBC, really? I wager it will last for a half season and get cancelled.

Funny you mention the Kardashions. The Palins are competing with them in the realm of "reality TV," and that's trivializing one who could have been great. Could have been a contender. I used to think it was a clever grand plan but it's starting to look just silly.

On Greta’s show last night, Pat Buchanan recommended that Gov. Romney pick Gov. Palin as his running mate to bring the conservatives on-board.

Sarah Palin continues to win hearts and minds. Team Romney should take note. This is how it’s done!

Exactly. Don't be petty and vindictive.

Sarah would be a bad choice this time around, b/c she would be a huge distraction from the focus that every savvy GOP advisor should insist upon-—the hideous record of the Marxist Punk. Bob

Agreed. That’s why Mitt will not pick a true Conservative as most would outshine him(as would just about anyone!).

While attending a pure celebrity function? How do we take her seriously when she's out schmoozing with the Hollywood elites?

When Republican National Committee calls our house asking for money, I tell them the check written and ready to be sent...just after Sarah speaks at the National Convention. They don’t like that.

“Andrew Breitbart consistently said Conservatives need to infiltrate pop culture in order to bring about change. In an interview in May of 2011 with Human Events’ Jason Mattera, Breitbart said Sarah Palin “gets it”. Indeed she does. No other Conservative has been able to seamlessly move between the worlds of hard core politics and pop culture the was Sarah does. She knows who she is and what she believes in. She’s comfortable in her own skin. In other words, she’s real.”

All of you jerks that attack her and her family for marching into the den of pop culture for fame and money... can now see exactly what Palin is doing. She is going to break the glass ceiling for Conservatives and she is trying to take back America by taking back the pop culture. She is truly operating in ALL of our best interests. No other politician alive today has come close to Sarah. To think that we are stuck with a crusty white turd as a candidate sickens me.

When is she going to run for POTUS?

I can't believe the polarization around her - it's got to have been like that with Reagan also. The greatest angst around Palin (as was with Reagan) seems to be in the confused Republican Party.

They put her down but I don't care. She'd be a fine President. I hope she runs in 2016.

Great Picture of Sarah

Sarah is the hit of the party where ever she goes, mostly because the mere mention of her names makes our enemies quake and with good reason.

Go Sarah!

I’m still hoping for a Romney nod in 2012.

Seems to be I’m in something of a minority about that, but I think it would be wonderful.

Romney would get his presidency. And Palin would keep us all enthused.

You do recall that Reagan WAS a Hollywood elite?

President of SAG?

Costarred with a monkey?

Host of GE Theater?

History is your friend.

Reality TV is the milieu of the 21st century.

Palin gets this.

So did Breitbart.

She is Breitbart’s true heir.

I don't think a Romney presidency would be wonderful but Obama must be replaced (OMG (Obama Must Go) and ABO (Anyone But Obama)).

Romney (as the Bushes, Clinton, and just about everyone else except Reagan and Madison) thinks government has the answers.

It amazes me that such a knockout can be such an eloquent, elegant,and articulate defender of Conservative values and principles. Yeah, she looks great, but when you read her stands on the real issues of today, you realize what a true phenomenon she is.

While its true people can change and sometimes not for the better. The Conviction, Courage and sheer force of will Our Mama Grizzly has endured for her principles, to me at least, shows the dedication to the Conservative cause and has made it her own.

Go Sarah!
