    Tea Party darling Sarah Palin‘s recently launched video channel is not just a place where she can express her controversial conservative views: RadarOnline.com has learned that it’s an audition tape of sorts because the former Alaska governor is openly competing for a spot on The View! “Sarah has been in talks with The View to become a part of the cast as the voice of the far right,” an insider revealed. “During talks, it was brought to Sarah’s attention that mainstream Americans haven’t heard from her in a while, despite her appearances on Fox News. Being very media savvy, Governor...

    Sarah Palin hasn’t held office for five years, but the former Alaska governor’s reach only seems to grow. The one-time GOP vice presidential nominee has launched her own Internet TV network, named – drumroll, please – The Sarah Palin Channel. It’s a subscription-based service, and she’s charging $9.95 a month or $99.95 a year. “I want to talk directly to you on our channel, on my terms – and no need to please the powers that be,” Ms. Palin says in a video on the site, which went live Sunday. “Together, we’ll go beyond the sound bites and cut through...

    Sarah Palin visits South Fulton in April to campaign for Karen Handel. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin weighed in via Facebook this morning with a couple of Georgia GOP U.S. House runoff endorsements: former state Sen.

    Sarah Palin has finally lost it. In an essay on Breitbart.com, Palin demands the impeachment of President Barack Obama. Her piece starts off loopy and devolves from there. "Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president," she begins. "His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, 'no mas.'" I'm sorry, what? Why the switch to espanol? Is she implying Obama is a wife beater? That America is a battered, Spanish-speaking esposa? No idea, but by the end of her essay, I felt positively battered by her battiness. She accuses the president...

    How could someone filled with such promise plunge so far, so fast? How does one go from national icon to national laughingstock? That’s exactly what has happened to Sarah Palin, the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee. Once arguably the GOP’s most charismatic celebrity, Palin is now better known for “thriving in this role of right wing shock jock” as Nicolle Wallace, a former senior adviser for the John McCain-Palin campaign, now puts it. It’s a far cry from Sept. 3, 2008, when Palin, then the largely unknown Alaska governor, confidently strode onto the stage at the Republican National Convention as...

    INDIANAPOLIS — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin fired up a crowd of thousands inside Lucas Oil Stadium Saturday night to kick off the National Rifle Association’s “Stand and Fight Rally,” saying Americans’ constitutional rights as envisioned by the founding fathers are under attack and policies like gun-free zones constitute “stupid on steroids.” “They knew that if the Second Amendment goes, the rest of the constitution is not far behind,” she said of the country’s founders. In her approximately 12-minute address, Mrs. Palin also derided what she argued is akin to a ‘blame the messenger’ attitude on gun violence many Americans...

Sarah Palin are eagerly awaiting her keynote speech Feb. 11 at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C., hoping against all odds she’ll shake up the GOP field and announce a run — for president. “If she’s going to do it, that’s when she’d do it,” said Warren Rasmussen, the volunteer New Hampshire coordinator for Organize4Palin.com. “If she felt there was really no one who could make a proper case for conservatism, I think she might feel compelled to run.” Sure, it’s a long...

    Sarah Palin wasn’t ever really going to run for president, was she? That’s Donald Craig Mitchell’s guess. In an Op-Ed that discusses Palin’s decision not to run, Mitchell says she’s long prioritized her celebrity career over her commitment to public office, reminding us of Palin’s lucrative deals that followed after she quit as Alaska’s governor, including a seven-figure contract with Fox News. After three years of tweeting, hinting and eyelash-batting, on Wednesday Sarah Palin announced that she was not running for president. Her Facebook friends are disappointed. But for Sarah-watchers in Alaska like me, the announcement was long expected, old...

A number of GOP-friendly websites seem to have parted ways over her candidacy, with flamewars, purgings, and divisions running rampant. Among the sites with strong opinions are The Other McCain (pro), Ace of Spades (somewhat con), RedState (which seems to have descended into fullbore Palin Derangement Syndrome over the last few days), and Free Republic, which is officially pro-Sarah but has developed a...
  • A Palin Victory Doesn't Depend on a Date

    A Palin victory will depend on the decisions the voters will make based upon her record in Alaska and the solutions she presents to the problems currently plaguing this country. Once a primary is running full force, most voters don’t remember or give the slightest hoot as to which candidate had jumped in a full year ahead of the game and which candidate is only in the race a half a year or three quarters of a year. Votes based on such calculations are petty, foolish, and therefore probably non-existent. When questioned at exit polls, voters usually point to a...

    As you all may have heard, Florida has decided to move it's primary date to January 31st. By doing this they have risked of losing half their delgates. Also this has caused the early states of Iowa, SC, NH and NV to now talk about moving their primary dates (possibly losing delegates) to early January or quite possibly the end of December. This will in turn make for a shorter and more intense campaign season. Today is the deadline for moving primary dates. State filing deadlines are fast approaching and we need to be ready to hit the ground running...

    In November of 1979, five months before the first primary, Reagan announced he was running for president. Today is only three months before the first primary--three months. Yet I keep hearing people state that Palin has plenty of time to announce, because Reagan waited till November. 5 months vs 3 months. Do people understand that 3 is less than 5; that primary schedules have moved up; that Sara Palin is two months behind Reagan's schedule? It's obvious people seem to be missing the fact that the "Reagan deadline" passed two months ago. Palin is two months behind Reagan's schedule, and...

    Sarah Palin is running out of time. So are New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, and any other Republicans mulling a bid for the presidency. The main reason: the political calendar is rapidly closing. Of all those considering a late entry, Palin is the most likely to make the dive. But, according to several GOP and Democratic primary and campaign experts, she should move quickly or else end up being left behind by the established pack of Republican candidates already on the field. Here are the top five reasons the experts cited for Palin to jump...

    Let's suppose Cain wins the nomination. Do you think he's going to pal around with Palin on the campaign trail or pick her as VP? The honest answer is "No". Cain would need independents and Palin has a lot of negatives, also, she's from Alaska, not a key state. The simple truth of the matter is Palin is no longer important as some think she is. And any candidate that latches on to her, or rather, let's Sarah latch on to them could quite possibly end up losing the independents. So, watch for the nominee to distance himself (whoever he...

    A coy Sarah Palin talked a lot yesterday about the type of leader this country needs, but in what is turning into an extended national tease, she stopped just short of saying she will be that leader. "I don't know yet," Palin, the former Republican vice presidential candidate turned best-selling author, told the Herald yesterday after her rousing midday speech at a Tea Party Express rally. A fed-up Victor Luebker of the Armed Forces Tea Party Patriots [team stats] - a group of former military men and women who support the Tea Party's platform - said he's tired of Palin's...

    All summer, Sarah Palin has been dropping nice fat hints that she's planning to jump into the 2012 GOP field — party-crashing the Ames Straw Poll in Iowa, putting out decidedly campaign-style ads — before immediately pirouetting and telling the MSM, no siree, still haven't made up my mind. In recent days, many have speculated that the decision hour had finally come, what with Mama Grizzly headlining a Tea party rally in Des Moines, Iowa today — where the event's organizer said she would be making a "major announcement" — and off to New Hampshire for Labor Day. Adding fire...

    INDIANOLA, Iowa (AP) — Cheers of "Run Sarah, Run" greeted Sarah Palin at a tea party rally in Iowa, but the former Alaska governor still isn't saying whether she's going to jump into the 2012 presidential race.Palin did have harsh words Saturday for President Barack Obama and the direction that she says the country has taken in his first term.She says "America is hurting" and at "a tipping point" due to "failed policies and incompetent leadership."The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee says the crisis runs deeper than the fear of double-dip recession or "the shame of a credit downgrade."She says this crisis "will relentlessly...

    In front of a wildly supportive crowd of Tea Party members at a rally in Indianola, Iowa, Sarah Palin said that the U.S. is now at a “tipping point.” While didn’t explicitly announce her candidacy for the 2012 Presidential race, observers at the Des Moines Register who covered the event said Palin’s comments sounded like a campaign speech. “Iowa you are good people,” Palin said. “We’re here because America is at a tipping point. America faces a crisis, and it’s not a crisis like perhaps a Midwest summer storm that moves in and hits hard, but then moves on.” When...
