Check out the video with the Greta interview to see Palin's response to the latest Politico "anonymous source/GOP insider" hit-piece:

Greta also did a great job in tearing apart the authors of the article, calling them “stupid” several times for using quotes from unnamed people.

Listening now. It’s more of a respectful give and take between Greta and Sarah, 11 minutes long. Greta’s pissed that the Politico article is not real journalism — unnamed sources, not for attribution, off the record, on background — not a single attributed quote (with the possible exception of Karl Rove’s known quotes). Sarah’s great as usual; great interview.

I’ve been watching Megyn Kelley for moonths. She’s incredibly smart, a patriot, and believes in the rule of law. Even O’Reilly watches his rude loud mouth when Megyn speaks.

Politico has been completely exposed for who and what they are.

Politico is already known for who they support.

“I’ve been watching Megyn Kelley for moonths. She’s incredibly smart, a patriot, and believes in the rule of law.”

I agree, which I was surprised at her vigorous criticism of Delta Airlines today when discussing the incident in which a Muslim-garbed man stayed in the restroom while the plane was taxiing and they found part of the toilet dislodged after he came out. They took him and his family off the plane, confirmed there was no threat, and put them on a later flight. Meghn read Delta the riot act during her commentary. Even my 15 year-old son commented how off base she was. If I was on that flight I’d have wanted them to do exactly what they did.

What was he trying to do? Wash his feet as part of his daily prayers?

It’s one thing to write an article with “named” sources.
It’s another to write one with “un-named sources”.

These Ruling Class RINO’s are so scared of Palin, they won’t allow themselves to be named. They are cowards.

I heard it, and i’m pretty sure she said “king Salmon”, not pink salmon.

Sarah would not wrap her salmon in it but she did call it "crap." And this Politico journalism was worthy of the crap it was spewing. Journalism in this country is no longer "all the news that's fit to print. Instead it is all the crap that's fit to wrap. It is how a nation loses its watchdog, the press.

LOL! That reminds me of an RV trip my wife and I took to Yosemite once. We stayed one night in an RV park outside of the park before going in the next day.

That night a few rental RVs with (apparently) Muslims came in...They all took turns using the hose and the concrete pad at the sewer dump to wash their feet....BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

there’s a good chance he was just going to the bathroom...we have issues here in Kabul with the local nationals breaking the toilet seats in a western style bathroom.

They are used to their toilets which are just holes in the floor with raised areas (about an inch) on either side for your feet...they straddle the hole and squat over it...so when they use a western bathroom they don’t sit on the seat - they climb onto it and squat. you see footprints on the seat all the time

and can I just say “ew”???

Pink salmon actually makes a lot more sense, they’re the least desirable of the different types of salmon. Sarah was just putting a locally flavored exclamation mark on her distaste.

BTW, Palin may have tipped her hand a little more than she intended to and I think Greta noticed it. Check out 5:35 in the Greta interview and watch Greta's eyes after Palin says this: "I am here to help the cause, so are I hope, all other potential candidates in the future . We're here as hopefully as team members..." Palin earlier admitted in the Wallace interview that she would bow out and support someone else if the right person came along; however, most of the likely to run candidates IMHO don't fit that criteria (Romney, Gingrich, Thune, Daniels, etc...). I would imagine that she would support a Pence, DeMint, or Ryan candidacy, but each at some point has denied a Presidential run in 2012. Would Palin support a Bolton candidacy? I remember he said he would throw his hat in the ring. I know he's good in Foreign Policy (although I fear he's seen more as Hawkish than "Peace through Strength"); however, I don't know his fiscal and social views.

Was that pink salmon or ‘King salmon’ that she said?

This video is poor quality. Light is poor and not possible to read lips of Greta and Sarah. 50% of speech is unintelligible. Speakers are not facing camera so lip reading is not possible. Previous videos of Greta and Sarah have been well lighted and speakers shown up close facing camera and so all of speech is clear.

Mabye, but I wouldn’t risk an airliner full of passengers to find out.

LOL! You would have to be Alaskan to understand just what this means, like being able to “see Russia from here” (A true statement, ref; Big and little Diomede Islands.)

To an Alaskan, Pink Salmon is the trashiest fish that one would waste their time catching. The canneries during the turn of the century had to can them. They are not worth any thing else.

This is the ultimate slam and quite clever at that.

A very good quality video is up right now, in the middle of the page, at gretawire.com. Greta is outraged at the anonymous sources and lack of journalistic integrity!

FYI, I believe Greta’s homepage is updated frequently, so if you check back later, it may be moved.

During her interview wih Chris Wallace, she was asked if she w going to run. She responded by saying ‘why would I give up all the freedom and fun I’m having now, I don’t need a title’. Then in answer to the next question, which I don’t recall off hand, she said’. You know, America is worth the sacrifice.’

I don’t know what she’s going to do, she may even know just yet. But if she decides to go for it: Sarah Palin has my vote.

I wouldn’t either, just pointing out that there is a purely reasonable explanation (I know, the explanation isn’t reasonable by western standards, but it is what it is) that doesn’t involve terrorism.

“I wouldn’t either, just pointing out that there is a purely reasonable explanation (I know, the explanation isn’t reasonable by western standards, but it is what it is) that doesn’t involve terrorism.”

Of course there is a non-terrorism explanation for the behavior. The problem is that you can only find out whether or not it was “reasonable” after the fact, and if you guess wrong you’re dead.
