Fox puts Palin back in the spotlight (Above average Leftist Maryland hogwash)
The Carroll County Times ^ | June 26, 2013 | Tom Zirpoli

Posted on 06/26/2013 8:20:47 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

She’s back. That would be former Alaskan half-term governor and former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, of course.

She is back on Fox News. Evidently the folks over at Fox didn’t think they were fair and balanced enough toward the Republican side of the aisle.

Of course, not all Republicans are happy with Palin’s return. Gearing up for the 2014 congressional races and the 2016 presidential race, the last thing moderate Republicans want is to remind everyone why they didn’t vote for the Republican ticket in 2008. With the exception of folks in red states or congressional districts, Palin doesn’t do Republicans any favors, especially with independent voters.

Former Florida full-term Gov. Jeb Bush, for example, can’t be happy. During Palin’s first appearance back on Fox’s morning show, “Fox and Friends,” Palin took Bush to task for his support of immigration reform. Bush, the smart son in the family, understands that without an effort to bring Hispanics into the Republican Party, especially in places like his home state of Florida, the White House becomes an increasingly difficult goal for Republican candidates.

This, however, is of no concern for Palin. She will be paid more than $1 million per year from Fox News to play her traditional role as the far-right Alaskan mama bear. Palin will collect her salary regardless of who sits in the White House and, after all, it is all about her.

A return to television also gives Palin the opportunity to spread the news about her books so she can make millions more without holding a real job. “I’m writing a book about Christmas and pushing back on the politically correct who have tried to take Christ out of Christmas ... at the same time a very festive and happy and jolly book about tradition and recipes and fun things about Christmas,” stated Palin to her friends on Fox during her very first appearance.

Indeed, nothing brings Christ back into Christmas more than Sarah Palin getting rich on a book about how Christ has been taken out of Christmas. I hope all of Fox’s corporate sponsors, who make billions replacing the baby in the manger with the old man on the sled, were paying attention.

I’m just guessing, but I suppose that her next book will be about how liberals invented the Easter Bunny in order to take Christ out of Easter. Actually, Palin could write a book about how she gets out of bed in the morning and her tea party followers would pay to read it. The lady is a cash machine.

Speaking of not-so-bright politicians, Republicans in the state to our north, Pennsylvania, are slashing state funding for public education to the bone. They are doing the same thing in North Carolina. I guess their strategy to win elections in the future is to keep the voting public uneducated. This way, it is much easier to convince people that women can’t get pregnant when raped, that global warming is a hoax and that evolution is a theory on par with creationism.

Seriously, ever wonder why when Republicans take over a county, city or state, the first thing they cut is public education for our children?

Palin, of course, did go to college. Actually, she attended five colleges in six years before graduating from the University of Idaho with a degree in journalism. While some may think that she has a problem finishing anything she starts, I call her persistent. Perhaps that is why she is back on Fox News. After dropping out five months ago, she is back to finish what she started. Maybe she is setting the stage for a run for the White House in 2016. Actually, I’m dreaming of a presidential race between Palin and former Senator and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Now that would bring some fun back into politics.

Just a bit.

Never heard of it........perhaps that is why no-names like to attempt to associate themselves with her (like parasites), it's usually free publicity.

First sentence reads identical to the piece yesterday by the libtard RINO Frum acolyte journalist.

What is the name of the new Journolist site that the presstitutes are getting their daily talking points from?

I like to see she gets under their skin as this article makes it most obvious. Wonder how much the author is getting writing about SARAH? After all, Tom Zirpoli doesn’t even have to get it right. Poor little pissant!

Voters can compare and contrast Palin's multcollege degree and her future political successes that were achieved on her own vs the fact that Hillary couldn't make it on her own because she failed her DC law boards so she had to gain her future political successes on the back of her philandering husband

I don’t care about the dismissive tone of the article, I’m just curious what brought her back to Fox. The break seemed pretty acrimonious when it happened. Did they make overtures to her and ask her to come back? Did she contact them and offer to come back for less money?

She is very bright. Her comments on current issues are generally spot-on IMO.

She is too trusting and loyal to a fault. That is why she let her career be mortally wounded by McCain and his handlers. In hindsight I almost think they decided “well, we ain’t beating this Obama guy, so next best thing is to destroy the next up-and-coming threat to us RINOS.”

After the savage beating her family took from the press jackals, I think she has lost any taste for serving in public office again.

They burned down her church with women and children still inside of it, went through her trash and e-mails with a fine-tooth comb, moved a gossip novelist next door to her (with a view to her daughter's bedroom) and sued her for dozens of trivialities, costing her hundreds of thousands of dollars and attacked her special needs child. Would that make you want to stick your neck out?

I’m inclined to agree with you... there is nothing in the actions of McCain & Co. to dispel that idea.

Starts off with a lie, saying Palin was the reason republicans didn’t vote for the ticket in 2008.

She was the ONLY reason we voted, and many of us did so with the sincere hope that something would happen to render a Pres. McCain completely disabled so she could be de facto President.

Indeed. The newsmedia tracked down any and every person whose path ever crossed with Palin, no matter how slightly, including her college years (in their desperation to dig up any dirt). The LA Times and WA Post had slews of interviews, and it was almost amusing how typical and mundane they were. In college, Palin was bright, religious, low-key, and would piningly talk about graduating and starting a journalism career and marrying her sweetheart Todd back in Alaska. Those interviews didn’t get much attention at the time, but they were interesting to read, and actually painted a rather nice picture of Palin.

You sure speak for ME with that post! If McCain had had a RINO running mate, my vote would have gone elsewhere, as it did in 2012 for the first time in 35 years of voting straight Republican ticket in every election -- for my mom, it was the first time in 60 years of voting straight R ticket. The Republican party left us with guys like McCain and Romney, and we are moving on to let them LOSE.

You got that right! And the irony is that that kind of thinking -- vote for the "R" no matter what he espouses because to not be that afraid of the consequences (Obama, Clinton) is crazy! So voting out of fear year after year, decade after decade, got us to the point where McCain got the nom in 2008 and the only guy worse, Romney, got the nom in 2012!

The balance of people have figured out that the only way to reduce liberalism is to vote such that it loses. That's exactly what they did in 2008 and 2012.

The Democrat party is NOT the enemy. Liberalism is the enemy.

We must use our votes to defeat liberalism.

It is TIME NOW to consider the smartness of, in presidential elections, voting knowing specifically FOR the outcome of making sure that the winning candidate only musters a minority.

Minority plurality status puts him/her on defense and weak. It sure as hell weakened Clinton, who elected with 57% of the vote "against" him the first time, and with 51% of the vote "against" him the second, was first hit with the Republican Revolution and then impeached, if not convicted.

To defeat liberalism, Americans who love their freedom must undersatnd that in this scenario, a serious third-party presidential candidate to split the vote between the sides of the single liberal coin that is Democrat/Republican, if your candidate loses, at least whichever guy wins only has a plurality.

The price of that is of course that your own candidate would only win likewise, with a plurality, barring a miracle and they do happen!
