Will Kate Gosselin Cost Sarah Palin Votes?
Fox ^ | 8/9/10 | staff

Posted on 08/09/2010 9:56:37 AM PDT by pissant

Will Kate Gosselin hurt Sarah Palin's political career when the two moms appear together on Palin's new TLC show in November?

Slideshows: Palin's Changing Looks | Two Years Of Kate’s Changing Looks

As silly as that sounds, the pundits are starting to talk after TLC announced late Friday that Gosselin would appear on "Sarah Palin's Alaska" sometime in November, after the fall general elections.

Palin is a presumptive presidential candidate for 2012 and has already released one video that appears to be a campaign advertisement.

In the time before the 2012 election, Palin is writing books, doing the TLC series and appearing on Fox News as a contributor.

But does an extended photo of with a reality TV star who is a magnet for the paparazzi and bad press the best decision for Palin.

I don’t judge Sarah Palin on what Kate Gosselin says or does, I judge Sarah Palin on what Sarah Palin says or does...those listening to Gosselin were Palin haters to start with.

It’s a poor decision by Palin, and one that reaffirms some peoples’ belief that she’s not a serious person. Even people who admire her are taking notice, and not in a good way.

kate has no power to cost anyone but the stupid idiot john that married that wh0re and was stupid enough to turn his back on his responsibility on both her and his 8 children. I saw this b!tch in the Atlanta airport... stuffing her face with ice cream and hugging all over her body guard... and this was BEFORE the divorce.

Will Pissant’s constant trolling and association with Duncan Hunter turn everyone off?

I don’t know about everyone, but if Hunter knows you’re posting snarky hitpieces on Sarah my answer is a definite yes.

It's a freakin TV show for goodness sake. It may show what a real woman is like compared to the troll Kate. This is just spin for spin’s sake. I can't see how what Fox does affects what Palin looks like to voters. If she's under contract, she pretty much has to do what they tell her to do.

I’ll judge her on hanging out with that no-class reality show bimbo. It’s not like she doesn’t have enough Jerry Springer material in her own life.

Just like “The View” is a TV show. Yet Obama was criticized for that. This is several times trashier.

I heard for Palin’s next trick, she is going to do a video with Lady Gaga and Bam Bam Bigelow.

What a stupid idea this was for Palin. She may as well have done a film hanging out with the Octomom.

What is she crazy? Gosselin? Are you nuts?

Maybe she can do an interview with John and Lorena Bobbitt for Jerry Springer next.

Jeesh, she really changed my opinion of her. When I first heard the report, I thought it was satire.

Oh I'm so sure.

What about pictures of 10% unemployment, illegals crossing the border, death panels, trillion dollar deficits and two ugly Marxist broads in black robes?

Geez!

Here's the central problem I'm having lately with the idea of Palin as standard bearer:

Our nation is in serious jeopardy. Our liberties are being systematically denied by an out-of-control Federal government led by an Administration filled with socialist ideologues. I believe we need a leader whose interests do not extend to celebrity, but instead to the promotion of clearly-expressed ideas and unshakable principles.

I like Sarah Palin as a person. I think she is brighter than many people realize, has a good heart, loves her country, and would be an improvement over Barack Obama as President. But so would almost any Republican. Facing down Obama and the multi-billion dollar Soros/Union Democrat machine will require both serious intellectual weight and a will of steel.

I also believe that victory will likely require a new face untainted by exposure to the GOP "leadership" of the recent past, which has not exactly covered itself in glory. That includes both John McCain and George Bush, whom the Democrats are going to run against once again, if they can (and probably even if they cannot).

Obama is an intellectual lightweight who pretends (with daily assistance from his "media" cheer squad) to be a wise leader. Sarah Palin is honest, but not an intellectual powerhouse, either. And that is what we're going to need to defeat the unprecedented assault that is coming for whoever the GOP nominee ends up being. And trust me - I know these people - what they will try to do to that nominee will be uglier, nastier, and dirtier than anything you can imagine, especially if the Democrats suffer large Congressional losses this year. Only the strong and serious will survive.

Anyone who seriously wants to be President should not be a lead character, much less the main character, in a reality show.

It almost shocks me at how far our nation has fallen, intellectually, emotionally, ethically and most of all, spiritually.

But so would almost any Republican.

Here's where you are wrong. To win a national election as soon as this one, you need a national presence. Sarah has the highest profile AND the best conservative track record. We should stop snarking with the MSM's talking points against her and get behind our strongest candidate.

Go back and read what was said against Reagan leading up to his challenge with Carter... it's nearly word-for-word what is said against Sarah Palin. Frankly, I want another Reagan right now and I'm not concerned over what the press thinks of her.

Facing down Obama and the multi-billion dollar Soros/Union Democrat machine will require both serious intellectual weight and a will of steel.

Go back and check her bio again... she's EXACTLY the person to do this.

If Sarah Palin is playing pimp to the media whore Gosselin, she’s lost a lot of credibility with a lot of people.
