I have no idea. And neither does anybody else on this thread. I do enjoy wild speculation sometimes, I must admit.
Then WHY would they schedule her to do interviews on McCains speaking night in the first place?????
Actually she was the most popular governor in America, perhaps in history, she was already gaining fame in conservative circles as a reformer, a giant killer, a highly skilled politician, that could fight and win.
Palin consistently had approval in the 80s and reached 93%, Mitt Romney left office with 34%.
I think it has to do with her complaining about the rules changes at the convention.
Gov. Palin is a perceived threat to the
Emperor of RINOs and DEATH PANELS.
A really disturbing mental picture. Did you have to do that?
Yep, that’s what I think. Palin dared to speak up for the conservative grassroots against the rules changes yesterday, so now she’s being ‘slapped down’ by the ruling-class GOP-establishment.
Who’s this “you people” to whom you refer?
And you think they told Fox to cancel her interviews?
So Fox is going to keep the idiot Juan Williams on and cancel Sarah’s appearance.
She did take a pretty serious shot at the Romney team on Mark Levin’s show and if Romney has any sway with Fox, they put the kibosh on her tonight. They want this about Ryan and don’t want Sarah anywhere near.
I don’t really believe this had anything to do with McCain. I have been happy to not hear his name.
That all said, I still love her.
I hope that’s not true, because if it is, it will be found out and Fox will be finished with the “Fair and Balanced” schtick: They’d have been caught interfering with a Party’s governing process.
Can we also say...his record as an American Senator has been extremely lacking. Hero? Nope.
I agree I don’t think it had anything to do with McCain.
Rather, she was using McCain as a way to reply as to what she’d like to talk about tonight.
I hear you but she feels differently, as is her right. The story here is the cancellation, not the subject of the cancellation (as we know, Fox News things McLame is great).
Cancellations of “all interviews” means something from the Roger Ailes level, not any individual host or some programming flunky decision. Cancelling a highly-paid Republican former VP candidate commentator on the night of the current VP candidates speech is a Big F’n Deal.
Of course its true.
Chris Wallace is Romney’s Anchor Wife
and every single sentence from him for MONTHS
has been “HOW does this (fill in, eg. Fast&Furious,
Syria, Moslem Brotherhood, ...) relate to Mitt?”.
FOX “News” is so far from “FAIR and BALANCED”
that it truly needs a warning label, instead.
Go where? She helped Ted Cruz get the GOP nomination for Senate in my state over a RINO. She needs to be in the White House!
The GOP establishment IS FOX and IS Matt Drudge. They are all on Team Romney and what Romney wants from them, Romney gets. And what Romney wants beyond any shadow of a doubt is the utter and total destruction and annihilation of the power of Tea Party conservatives, Christian conservatives, grass-roots conservatives and any kind of populist movement.
LOL, they certainly haven't been fair-and-balanced ever since the primary when they were solidly behind Team Romney and ended up banning Newt from the channel for life because he put up the strongest fight.
Governor Palin does not owe everything to Senator McCain, she was quite a rising force with a long time political career and an elected Governor, when he chose her for the ticket, that is why he picked her, to help his ticket.
Oh, and welcome to freerepublic.
LOL, was it Wallace last night who criticized Chris Christie’s speech because he didn’t spend enough time talking about Romney?
Thats my bet
Sarah has no bigger supporter here than I.
After Romney loses and the party fractures, I will be on her team.
But - she’s been fighting a war with Team Romney for years, and she’s lost this round decisively. It’s too bad, I think I understand why she’s played this the way she has, but if you don’t fight to win, you can’t cry when you lose.
FNC is becoming a “real” (legitimate) schtick, isn’t it? My bad...Sometimes one doesn’t know how ridiculous something looks until one reads one’s own words? FNC has been in the Romney tank for so long I forgot what it was like when they were not.
Sarah, you have done great things for the conservative cause, but continuing to tout John McCain as some sort of hero only proves that you are suffering from the political equivalent of battered wife syndrome, hasn’t it occurred to you that the reason the 2008 ticket you were on failed to win, was NOT because of you, but because of McCain and his toadies who started stabbing you in the back from the gitgo?
God love ya, you stand for all the values and beliefs that have made America great, however you have got to recognize that you were set up, left to twist in the wind, and abandoned by those rotten sons o’ bitches.
Wake up gal, McCain was not, is not, and never WILL be your friend. He USED you. At least Romney is fighting, McCain threw the election, especially after he realized that you had damn near won it for him.
Why in the world should John “I’m really a Leftist Dumbocrat” McCain be allowed to speak at the R.N.C.? This has got to be some kind of sad joke. I actually thought Mitt would ask him to be his V.P., that’s how screwed up I think the world is nowadays.
I agree 100%. If she feels so strong about her conservative beliefs then McCain should not be on her support list. He used her plain and simple. She needs to open her eyes and realize it and go on.
I agree and don’t know why Sarah feels the need to praise McCain. He isn’t one of us.
You know nothing! Sarah was the most popular governor in America and was a rising star in the party.....she would have been a huge figure (no pun) like RINO Christie except she would have been the conservative version without McCain picking her. Although being with McCain she had a run in with advisors Steve Schmdits and Nicole Wallace who’s incompetence hurt her more than anything else
Sarah, Sarah, Sarah... Hasn’t McCain done enough to you, and the rest of us? I wonder if she believes he really had no clue what his “handlers” were doing to her during the campaign. I have problems reconciling her statements on the issues and her love for John McCain - it doesn’t make all that much sense to me... [Unless of course she’s trying to keep her friends close and her enemies closer??? Perhaps kissing up to keep herself in the loop???]
I don’t doubt that she has respect for him, I don’t doubt that she wishes him well on his birthday, but why in the world would she be interviewing and making a big deal about McCain when it’s Paul Ryan’s big night?? Like I said, I’m having trouble reconciling these words and actions...
I think there has to be more to the story, and that it has a lot to do with the producers at FOX news - something’s going on, but none of it makes a lot of sense at this point.
They are into gagging who they want to gag and controlling who they want to control. Welcome to the continuance of the obama era.
Maybe it’s a typo and she really meant that Fox News banned her because she was going to complain about the GOPe’’s rule changes and how they hurt the Tea Party and conservatives. I think that’s what she meant.
not even with yours

Who else generates this much activity in under one hour of posting?
Who wanted her to sing the praises of McCain? Certainly, not I. If she was going to spend the night ripping a hole though Obama, that would be keen but a bunch of interviews praising a party traitor is more than I’d care to stomach.
I love me some Sarah but you are right - if McCrisis wants praise let him come and defend his running-to-lose anti-campaign.
Even Madame Thatcher wasn’t allowed to comment on everything...
Her words were taken out of context IMO. Fox does not want her to complain about the rule changes by the GOP Establishment. That’s what I think. Read it again... between the lines.
I don’t think it’s the desire for “fame” that drives her decisions. I have no doubt that she feels some sort of gratitude to McCain for choosing her, however if she was really seeking “fame” for its own sake there are MANY other things she could have done at this point that would have made her a boatload of money, and would have made her more “palatable” to liberal women as well as the conservatives who already have respect for her.
John Mccain is someone who sold out his party and the State of Arizona GOP.
John McCain needs to retire, sooner the better.
This is Sarah’s true message. Thank him profusely so he will just GO!
Very ODD indeed!
Maybe we should cancel FOX.
Exactly! This was a send off message Sarah Palin wanted to send John McCain tonight on Fox News after his wing of the GOP made those damaging rule changes that hurt the Tea Party and Conservatives. That’s what she’s saying if you read between the lines.
