Sarah Palin Is Publicly Auditioning To Join 'The View'
Huffington Post ^ | 7/7/14 | Jack Mirkinson

Posted on 07/07/2014 7:43:39 AM PDT by DoodleDawg

Sarah Palin is dropping subtle hints that she might want to be a panelist on "The View." And by "subtle hints," we mean that she is explicitly saying in an interview that she might want to be a panelist on "The View."*

The ABC show is undergoing an almost total overhaul, with every host but Whoopi Goldberg departing. That means that lots of replacements are needed.

Bad move Sarah. I guess you were not watching 4 liberals shout down the 1 conservative on the view and they do it every day.

It’s not gonna happen per the article, “but it’s fun to think about”...

besides, whoopi would quit before having to actually defend her positions with logic.

They are shopping for a solid conservative woman and Mrs. Palin more than fits that bill. Sarah will be a super star if she goes there.

The article did have a link to where Palin talked about it. Sure, it was sort of a throw away line towards the end of an interview but I don't think Palin would have said it if she hadn't thought about it.

besides, whoopi would quit before having to actually defend her positions with logic.

I think Goldberg would love to try and trash Palin on a daily basis. Especially if the producers loaded the panel with a couple more liberals to join in. And you know they would.

How could they possibly know with any certainty who will or will not sign a contract in the future?

That's the writers opinion. If Palin didn't have interest in being considered then I doubt she would have mentioned it. Will the producers of "The View" ever hire her? If there's money in it then they would in a heartbeat.

Ya, remember that time Bill O’Reilly was on The View, and Whoopi and Joy Behar waddled off stage in protest, rather than address the points Bill was making?

These liberals want to shove liberalism down our throats, rather than have honest debate/disagreement about the issues of the day.

I have never watched it and Sarah being on it won,t change my mind. But if she does......... This might convince some of you that she is not serious about running for president.

I completely disagree.

Completely.

I am strongly for a Palin candidacy, and in fact picked her as McCain’s VP candidate before he announced her as his candidate in 2008.

There is nothing about being on the View, which would in even one single way detract from a Palin candidacy.

Just saying.

Bad move Sarah.

Agreed. On a fairly-run show, Palin would do well. And it would give her a chance to spread her message. People would see her as she is, not how the MSM portrays her.

But The View is not a fairly-run show. Secret meetings would be held to find ways to ambush Palin in order to embarrass her.

Yup, dumb idea. Practically suicidal from a personal credibility standpoint and something that could damage the Conservative Movement as well.

The other panelist can be assumed to hate Conservatives, hate Conservative women and hate Sarah Palin. They will be using every possible means at their disposal to trip her up, make her look bad etc. And it’ll happen on their playing field. And she can win 999 times; it’ll be the one time she does what all humans do and screws up that’ll get promoted.

And theres no way of beating these people on their own field. The best option is just to stay off of it. Like the saying goes, don’t get into a mudfight with a pig: you end up dirty and the pig enjoys itself.

Their ratings would go through the roof. If 'The View' was smart, they would pay Sarah anything she asked to join the show as their increased viewership would pay them back in spades.

Of course, the media wouldn't be able to herd one of the dumbest voting demographics out there like sheep because Sarah might actually influence some of the smarter sheep.

What if SP would anchor a Fox News with Sarah Palin broadcast on ALL the FOX broadcast (OTA) channels 5 days per week...not on FNC? Oh, they’re already considering something like that? I see.

I'm sorry, but where is it disinfo? It is based on a quote from Palin to another media outlet that was picked up by this guy from Huffpo.

Doubtful. I can’t honestly believe a sane person would deliver themselves into a den of vipers with absolutely no good in them.

She (and the country) would be better served running for some national office.

Having a daily slugfest with a bunch of she-hags isn’t a productive use of her time.

I am not saying I would not vote for her........... I am saying I don’t think she is interested in running for that office. She would have run for something in the last few years if she wanted it. I think she is enjoying her life the way it is now.

We'll have to agree to disagree on that one. I don't think she wants it enough to put up with the campaign, and she sure isn't going to kiss any GOPe behind to get the nomination. They'll do more to destroy her chances than the Democrats will.

Crap article, with the usual modus operandi. Take a throwaway line, and use it as a platform to attack and belittle Palin. Been happening for years.

Reminds me of the time Palin made a scathing speech about Obama and crony capitalism, in front of an audience of thousands. But the media zoned in on the color of her toenail polish. Deliberately diverting every story, every message-board discussion away from her message. A way to belittle both her and her message. PDS faggots, both lib trash and GOP-E types, immediately join in the fray.

I think you're on to something. And it doesn't have to be 5 days a week. Fox gives a one hour evening weekend show to Huckabee. Give Palin the same thing. Her ratings would be 100 times that of Huckabee. All good. No downside.

I think Sarah could hold her own. Which is why she would never be considered. They would only want conservatives who would lose an argument with libs.

There are almost two full years, until she needs to worry about the next Presidential election.

That is a very long time still.

I am all for this.

Putting Ms.Palin on “The View” would save the show...and....possibly...the country, with it!!! Let’s see what “ABC” does!!! Do they want the viewer ratings to rise or will they stay by the Obamabot losers, and watch the viewer ratings continue to nose dive??? Are they business people or are they Obamabots???

Why? It's just TV. Nobody takes it seriously anyway and few thinking people actually watch it. Consider such a move as an evangelical Conservative outreach to the unthinking and unlearned lib women who live in large cities.

And did you bother to read the article? It is third hand...Huff Po via Hollywood Reporter.

“Asked by the Hollywood Reporter if she had any interest in doing a “political talk show,” she replied, “I hear everyone recently got canned from ‘The View,’ maybe a show like that needs a punch of reality and a voice of reason from America’s heartland to knock some humble sense into their scripts. You know, someone willing to go rogue.””

That hardly fits the headline or the assertion...Have you not heard Sarah long enough to recognize when she is pulling someone’s leg????

Gosh no! Plenty of downside to that. Besides, I do not receive FNC. And you're comparing Huckabee to Palin?

I think they’d have a really difficult time shouting a hard core conservative like Sarah Palin.

They had pushovers on the show. She’s not a push over.

I don't see any downside to a Palin weekend show at all, except that you'd have to subscribe to FNC. Palin could pick her topics, her guests, etc. And maybe she could go on the road occasionally. It would be great.

And you're comparing Huckabee to Palin?

Them's fighting words, pal. Huckabee is a poster boy for the GOPe. And he's boring and unimaginative besides. I still can't figure out how he got a TV show.

Oh man...

Can you imagine if she had them come up to Alaska for a month and they had to live without make-up, go camping and "use the woods", Get around in a STOL SeaPlane with full Yanking and Banking to get in and out of tight spots, ride an ATV, Start a Fire, Set-Up a Tent, Hunt for Small Game and Fish and clean them to eat.

Oh please pass the Popcorn, it would be less than a day before some of her fellow panelist were in full meltdown mode.
