I haven’t watched network morning shows for years. It really is eye opening. With all the current topics to choose....they fill time with issues that don’t matter to any ones life. Good to see Sarah. Like her role in politics better, this is very dummied down.

Yeah, don’t you love those who would rather let Obama have a second term while pouting that their candidate didn’t get the “R” nod? I like Palin’s “Anybody but Obama” proclamation. None of the candidates are perfect but each are far better than Zero.

So sad but true. I am hopeful that many of those who refuse to support anyone but “their” candidate will come around and see the light. The stakes are really high. We stand to lose our way of life if zero is elected again. putting ones personal choice ahead of the future of the country is really juvenile.

She’s supposed to be on more in the next hour but I thought she did great in this hour with Matt Lauer. She’s giving Today a big ratings boost.

It doesn’t matter how dumb it is. It allows a whole bunch of people who don’t know better to see she’s not the evil moron that the media portrays her as.

This is not only good for Palin, but it undercuts the media playbook on her. Good chess move, on her part.

Agree, I was commenting more about the media. It is torturous to sit through. Assuming for some people, this and similar MSM is their main source of information.

She’s never said she’s for Romney. Big difference from some others. Just saying anyone but Obama is pretty standard. Does anyone really expect her to say “No, Matt, I’m not happy with him, he’s a total fraud and a phony”?

I don’t think she’ll ever full out endorse Romney. It’ll always be as part of this anyone but Obama line. Honestly, I don’t think Romney and his people want her to endorse him so it works out for both of them.

And I think this interview shows why so many women on the left can’t stand her. To be her age, have that many pregancies and kids, have achieved all that success and power, to have a loving and supportive family, a hunk and a real man’s man of a husband...to have all that and more and to still look that fine... Well, they just can’t abide by that.

Gov. Palin was thoughtful, provocative,
kind, careful, well prepared, poised and funny.

LOL bust a gut!
Sarah is part of “lame street media” sez Light-shoes lauer.
We are watching the process of the unprincipled media shedding its skin to pull back from Obama. Even they know he must go. And that to sell ads they have to back, as much as soulless fops like them can, back the winning side.

It is snowing in Albuquerque and it must have affected my brain. Undue optimisim

You are right. Comcast knows what house is watching what and when. They all monitor that.

That is why they have those awful packages that force you to pay for garbage that is watched by a very few, but is politically correct.

"I can’t stand that crap show or network either, but I think it’s important for her to appear on venues like that, because scores of people who don’t listen to conservative talk radio or watch Fox or lurk on websites like this watch that show. They will see that she’s not what the drivebys make her out to be."

I so agree with that!!

Yeah because the data from the cable companies is suppposed to be anonymous and is not reflective of all the supposed scientific polling data that Neilsen collects. The cable company information would just be raw data on how many subscribers are watching what program at any given time.

Obama’s threat of “flexibility” in the second term should inspire people to even vote for Willard Gump.

I DVRd the show and zipped past the segments without Sarah. I thought she looked great——I loved the black flare pants and the red scarf.

Did anyone catch Lauer’s nasty remark about Sarah using his dressing room? “I didn’t really give you permission to be there.” What a bitchy little woman he is.

Also, the funniest part of the show for me was when Tori Spelling was on. She was showing off her little finger sandwiches with the other woman (Ann Curry?), and when Sarah came over, Spelling actually SCOOTED away from her, and closer to Curry. It’s as if these lunatics think Sarah has something catching, or that they think she’ll bite them, LOL. You could tell Tori Spelling was absolutely freaked out by Sarah’s presence.

Well here I am, watching NBC for the first time since last century.

Palin just appeared, sure enough. But I have to say NBC has an odd definition of “co-host”, since she’s clearly not co-hosting.

God, I love Sarah Palin. She is like anti matter to matter when it comes to the Libs.

Good thing my wife loves her too.

I give her a lot of credit for going there. These people are beneath her,and their contempt of her is so obvious.
Matt’s belittling little interview with her this morning was incredible, but she handled it very effectively.

I noticed the five inch heels—I guess her runner’s legs allow her to wear them so well.That was a real power move.
Good for her.

"And I think this interview shows why so many women on the left can’t stand her." Mika B. had a pouting fit on "Morning Joke" this a.m. when everyone else on the set agreed that Sarah Palin had the "rock star" charisma of JFK and Ronald Reagan. While the men were discussing how it is a quality one is born with and can't be learned, Mike just fumed like a jealous teenage schoolgirl.

Gov. Palin owned Lauer, from her sneer directed at Lauer at the start, to her grabbing the interview quickly, parrying every gotcha question, and staying on point to list Obama’s failures. It was obvious that he knew he got beat.
Then they “visited” her backstage to show that she was writing notes on her palm but she said she went Into Lauer’s office and showed everybody his metrosexual hair and skin products. Instead of going with the joke, Lauer whined that she didn’t have permission to go into his office. Meanwhile, the audience loved her.
I thought Ann Curry would be a problem but she and Palin worked very well together and their hour went too quickly. Al Roker and the other woman were also gracious and had several joking moments. It was a good show but Lauer wet the bed.

"Good thing my wife loves her too."

LOL! My husband thinks she's beautiful, and I have absolutely no problem with that, because she is.

Yes, she's onto these people and she knows how to handle them. Nothing they throw at her now can rattle her.

And I must say, I love heels myself, but Sarah bested me with those killer heels---they had to be four inches or more, and that is more than I can handle!

the more I think about it Mika’s attitude largely explains why many women on the other side can’t stand her even though she’s a woman and you’d think they’d be sympathetic.

Women can be very catty and jealous, much moreso than men in my view.

I think when you get down to it it’s simple. A lot of these women are just insanely jealous. They saw her in 2008 and how successful and powerful she was. Then they saw she didn’t have to play the “pretend to be a man” game that folks like Hillary, Reno, even Condi to a certain extent did.

They saw she was beautiful and even after 7 pregnancies and five kids had a and in her mid 40s had a figure to die for. She had a supportive family. She had a loving, cute, attentive husband who didn’t stray and who she kept happy. She didn’t need to play the victim like Hillary.

Maureen Dowd the liberal doyenne of the NYT wrote a whole book about powerful and successful women can attract and keep guys because guys are afraid of them and intimidated and that’s why women like Dowd and her girlfriends are still single and unlucky in love. Palin took that idea and dynamited it. She had everything they said a woman can never have, and she had it all with a smile.

They just saw how pretty she was and how cute and supportive her guy was and just couldn’t stand it. “How come this didn’t happen to me? Where’s my man?, etc...” Add in that she’s pro-life and there was never really any chance they’d ever get on board.

I think you even see that with certain conservative women like Coulter, Ingraham(both single and feeling their clocks ticking no doubt), and a few others who are against her.

I also think female psychology helps explain why someone like Bill Clinton is still very popular with women. How many women have you known that have some total jerk for a bf or a husband but they stay with him? That’s basically Bill.

Really there’s nothing you can do, It just is.

depends. If she slobbers over him like Rubio and Ryan then yes. If she basically says that he was the one in the chair when the music stopped and it’s time to go after Obama, I don’t think many will be too upset.

Yes, she did, and I think that was because she saw Sarah wasn’t an ogre, but a nice person, and a mom who could relate.
