Ailes to Palin Death Wishers: Piss Off!
US4PALIN ^ | Wednesday, January 8, 2013 | Elizabeth Hawkes

Posted on 01/08/2014 11:18:28 AM PST by onyx




Roger Ailes hired former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin back as Fox News contributor to piss off people who wanted her dead. Ailes:

The only two people I knew who got worse press than her were Richard Nixon and George W. Bush — some of it unfairly, much of it unfair to her family. She’s recognizable, she’s attractive, and she still has the message of stop raising taxes. The Tea Party started as a group that [the government] could make go home to bake meatloaf at any point in the last three years by simply doing two things: Stop raising taxes and stop stealing their money. Congress can’t stop spending money. I’m not a defender of everything she says. I don’t hear everything she says. But I know she represents a certain group of people who rose up against their own party, which you rarely see. I probably hired her back, if you really want to get to the bottom of it, to give her a chance to say her piece and piss off the people that wanted her dead.

Ailes is still vested in which party “controls the US treasury” more than patriotism.

I believe that SPalin moves in the opposite direction.

God, I do love that woman.

No, she’s not the smartest, like Hillary </sarc>, though she is quite intelligent, nor the most articulate in that she doesn’t BS people, but she certainly knows how to cut right to the point.

Ailes is smart to keep President No. 45 on his network.

Never happen though. That would mean people could move in a positive direction instead of dealing with the PDS and God knows we can’t have that.

Good for Mr Ailes. Don't agree with some of his decisions - but for this one he gets kudos!!

May God continue to protect and bless Sarah. We need her now, more than ever!

I was thinking of creating a new drinking game. Essentially, go to DU, pick any thread at random, and add a comment that somehow mentions Sarah Palin. Then take bets on how long it takes for the entire thread to go from discussing some topic to 100% of each and every subsequent comment Sarah bashing.

Are you kidding? You can almost do that here. Well, it’s better than it used to be but for a 4 year run EVERY Palin mention brought down a flock of PDSers and every thread devolved.

Aye, but still be fun on DU. You can go to a thread about cats, and say something like “Did you hear, Sarah Palin ran over a cat last week?” The entire thread would then be hijacked.

Unfortunately it does still live on FR.

I laugh everytime I see "Media Death Watch" because the PDSers bought every word of the propaganda hook, line & sinker. The MSM isn't dying anytime soon and you can still see their influence even on FR.

PDSers never have to worry about unemployment even an Obama economy. They can always return to the circus as contortionists always seem to draw a crowd there.

Hillary has political savvy. I would rather have someone with the former. I think they can be trusted more to do the right thing for the right reason.

Roger Ailes hired former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin back as Fox News contributor to piss off people who wanted her dead.

Here's one pissed-off dude, man.

Don Imus show Imus behind the scenes the quote may be erased by now. This is a daily log written by his staff about the show and other things.

7:15:18 – The Boss reacts to Sarah Palin’s speech at the Billy Graham Birthday Celebration: “Is there any way that she could be put to sleep? If they put a bunch of scientist together to assemble the dumbest person in the world…they couldn’t make one more stupid than her.” An uncharacteristically measured response from the I-Man.

I recall that it was Friday November 8, 2013 show.

"Ah.. it's just Imus being Imus," some explain. If it was Imus being Imus the staff would have responded with comments like "Put the scientists to sleep who made you, Iman" or at least erupted into laughter. There was silence as I recall. The news reader reported on Palin's visit to Graham and started a recording of her speaking. Imus instantly hit the scream button and erupted with those threats. The newsman immediately moved on to another item.

Thank you so much for posting that.
I stopped watching Imus because of his ugly remarks about her.
I keep meaning to tell Ailes THAT!

He’s a classless, ugly person, both inside and out.

Apparently, the Old Racist Coke-Snorting Cradle-Robber has never met Barack O****, who is EASILY "the dumbest person in the world".

Or Imus is too chicken to tell the truth about his Leader Barack...

There are still some vocal try-hards but yes, many of the crew is gone. But then Palin hasn’t been in the news as much. But once she is again, so too will they return.

Sorta like Herpes. Can’t really be rid of it either.
