MSNBC Panel Goes Nuclear On Sarah Palin: ‘Irrelevant’, ‘Irresponsible,’ ...
Mediaite ^ | March 28, 2013 | Noah Rothman

On Wednesday, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s PAC released a video touting the former Republican vice presidential candidate’s political stature and continued relevance in GOP politics. On Thursday, the panel guests on MSNBC’s Now tore into the controversial political figure for what they saw as Palin’s irresponsibility, her irrelevance, and her effort to insert herself back into American politics for pure financial gain.

“Mama grizzly Sarah Palin may not have a real job or even a reality show on the horizon, but these days she seems like she’s gearing up to be a game changer in 2014,” said guest host Joy-Ann Reid.

After playing a clip of her new video, Reid turned to her panel to ask their impressions of Palin’s reemergence onto the political scene. “Irrelevant or awesome?” Reid asked.

“Awesomely irrelevant,” replied New York Times reporter Benjamin Wallace-Wells. “One thing I’m wondering is in the next presidential cycle, after Herman Cain and after Sarah Palin, we will view more cynically candidates who seem to be running for president as a way to amp up their speaking fees.”

“Ben Carson,” Reid suggested.

“Right,” Wallace-Wells agreed.

New York Times Magazine editor Hugo Lindgren questioned whether Cain’s “disgraceful” exit from the political scene actually helped increase his speaking fees.

Reid asked Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart if Palin still retained “some utility” for the GOP, even if it was just to fire up the base.....

Why do "they" insist on talking about something irrelevant?

Living rent free in their heads and loving it! Go Sarah.

If she’s so irrelevant, why are they talking about her?

Google Palin irrelevant and you get "about 1,560,000 results". The left's tactics today remind me of soviet socialist and national socialist tactics 70 years ago. Human nature does not change.


If we keep repeating that Sarah Palin is irrelevant, they will believe.

Two Words: Ted Cruz

Even if Ted Cruz was the ONLY Tea Party Conservative that was helped by Sarah Palin (which he wasn’t, there are many more) the MSM would still have their “undergarments in a non-optimal rotated position” Made that last part PC so the libbies could understand it!!!

I know someone who is a libbie and one day was bitching about Sarah Palin, I told her that gee, if you just ignored her she would go away and that she lives rent free in her head, she kinda stared for a few seconds and said “I never thought of that...” I went on to tell her that her talking about Sarah Palin all the time is WHAT MAKES HER RELEVANT, I never her bitch about Sarah Palin again, LOL

Of course before august of 2008 the majority of MSM articles about Sarah Palin in the MSM were POSITIVE!!!! They loved Sarah because she cleaned out the corruption in the backwater hayseed fly-by country that is Alaska and they LOVED her for it...

When is was threatened that she would be a heart beat away from being able to DO THE SAME THING in Washington they BALKED. This scared the ESTABLISHMENT so much that they panicked and went FULL ALINSKY on her!!!!

I’ll bet a large share of the dozens who watch MSNBC come from right here in FReeperland.

Now THAT is one of the best illustrations I’ve ever seen.
It could be used for the whole panoply of leftist lies:
- Republicans stupid
- Limbaugh evil
You get the drift...

Excellent ping!

If people quit talking about MSBS and posting their drivel, MSBS might go away.

her irrelevance, and her effort to insert herself back into American politics for pure financial gain.

Just like the impeached Bubba *Squirt?

Funny that MSNBC which has Al Sharton as one of their news people should complain about anyones irresponsibility or irrelevence.

Has Sarah stirred riots and gotten people killed.

WTF is wrong with these dipsticks.? They would have to be total fools not to recognise Al Sharpton as the race baiting POS he is and then turn and make stupid statements about Sarah Palin.

“Mama grizzly Sarah Palin may not have a real job or even a reality show on the horizon, but these days she seems like she’s gearing up to be a game changer in 2014,” said guest host Joy-Ann Reid.

I see. So tell me Joy, do you define a "real job" as sitting in a comfortable chair in an air-conditioned New York studio for an hour, and making nasty remarks about other women?

After you've had people doing your makeup and your hair and your nails for you all morning?

If MSNBC didn’t go off on Palin, I would worry.

“Those guys” throw out Dr. Carson, because THEY think he will fit THEIR mold!

A wise, Divine-led, Native American (who in Alaska is NOT?), well-cultured, experienced, self-determined woman will always outshine any MSM individual, regardless of their own delusions of grandeur, or self-inflated importance.

MSM figureheads learn to love that little red light on the camera, and think themselves large from the paycheck they are given.

Prairie and wilderness women learn to live life daily, face challenges only read about while on the commode by MSM types, and know that there is a greater thing than themselves, and work and grow within that mindset. I am humbled to have as a friend, such a woman. She is a descendant of those, whose homes were made of sod. (The rest of the story can wait.)

Sarah Palin is one of those women. She is NOT irrelevant. She stands as an unfettered American thumbing the eye of Socialists, Communists, and progressives all over this great land, and with a smile! Will Rogers was never accepted in New York City, but had some very smart things to say, as well!

Geaux, maman Grizzly!

If Sarah is so irrelevant, why do they obsess about her so?
