    Oscar Wilde once quipped that “there is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.” Having generated a lot of chatter recently, Sacha Baron Cohen and Showtime may take The Importance of Being Earnest author’s words as some cold comfort today. They may have to. Because, for all the hoopla around the debut of Cohen’s Who Is America? series, the 10 PM satire offering attracted a pretty meager viewership on July 15, at least on the small screen. Just 327,000 sets of eyeballs tuned in to the premium cabler on...

    Showtime and comedian Sacha Baron Cohen rebuffed former GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin's claim that she was "duped" into a prank interview for the British actor's new series. The network said in a statement on Monday that Baron Cohen conducted the interview for his new show "Who is America?" dressed as one of his new characters, Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr., Ph.D. But contrary to Palin's claim that the character was intended to be a disabled vet, Showtime said that the show's premiere on Sunday proved that wasn't the case. "There has been widespread misinformation over the past week about...

    SNIP Palin appeared on ABC's “Good Morning America” on Friday to talk about the interview Baron Cohen staged for his new Showtime satirical series “Who is America?” The former governor of Alaska told host Robin Roberts that Baron Cohen showed her “propaganda” about sex changes and transgender people and claimed that Chelsea Clinton was the “recipient of a government-funded sex change.” “It got worse and worse and worse as the minutes went on in this bizarre, really embarrassing, humiliating interview,” Palin said. “It mocked middle class Americans, it mocked our values, it mocked the disabled.” Palin said she had had...

    Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin slammed what appeared to be a response from British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, who’s on the defensive after apparently posing as a disabled military veteran for a prank interview. “Another list of unfunny lies, this time typewritten for all to see; a pathetic attempt to punk not just my daughter and me again, but now the public,” Palin wrote on Facebook Thursday. “Thank God people are wise to Hollywood’s BS & said, ‘Enough.’” Palin was responding to a tweet sent from the Twitter account of “Billy Wayne Ruddick,” the fictional character Cohan plays in his...

    Sarah Palin is calling on Sacha Baron Cohen to donate all the profits from his upcoming Showtime series to military veterans’ groups after saying she was duped into an interview with the comedian when he pretended to be a wounded warrior. The Daily Mail reports that the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee said she unknowingly participated in an interview for what turned out to be Cohen’s just-announced satirical series, “Who is America?” “This ‘legit opportunity’ to honor American Vets and contribute to a ‘legit Showtime historical documentary’ was requested of me via a speakers bureau,” Palin said. Palin, 54, says...

    MSNBC’s “AM Joy” host Joy Reid lamented Sunday how the media viewed former President George W. Bush and Sarah Palin as authentic and enchanting because of their speech while also “disparaging” former President Barack Obama for “being almost too erudite and articulate.” “There is a thing in Republican Party politics where not being erudite as a speaker is seen as a virtue,” said Reid. “It was with George W. Bush, the idea that he’s plain-spoken, and so, when he would mangle the language — even the media would read that as authentic and great, right? He would make up words...

    This week on “Saturday Night Live,” guest and former cast member Tina Fey brought back her old Sarah Palin character to deliver a message to members of the Trump administration. “Here’s a refresher: I was the first female on a Republican presidential ticket and now I get paid to tweet for Bass Pro Shops,” Fey said as Palin. “Take it from me, politics is a wild ride. One minute you’re on top, and then you’re gone in the blink of a Scaramucci. Well, I have a message for all the people in the Trump White House: enjoy your moment, who...

    White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded Friday to a barrage of questions regarding Special Assistant to the President Kelly Sadler joking about Sen. John McCain’s death in an internal meeting which was leaked to the press. A reporter asked Sanders if Sadler still had a job. “I’m not going to comment on an internal staff meeting,” she replied. Another reporter pressed Sanders on the remarks and whether the White House planned to address them. “I’m not going to validate a leak out of an internal staff meeting one way or the other,” Sanders said. She did later confirm...

    In his new book, The Restless Wave, and in an upcoming HBO documentary, U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) expresses regret about choosing former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his vice presidential running mate in the 2008 election. According to TheNew York Times, in the documentary, McCain refers to the Palin selection as “another mistake” he made in a long political career. In his new book, McCain reportedly claims that former Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman, a Democrat, would have been a better choice for the ticket. McCain noted that his advisers convinced him not to choose the Democrat, so he picked...

    Sarah Palin broke her silence Thursday and said Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., never told her directly that he regrets picking her as his running mate as the 2008 Republican presidential nominee. However, the former Alaska governor said every time she hears about the reports of his bitterness towards her, it's "like a perpetual gut-punch." "It's not a real fun thing that part of my job is the requirement – is having to read the news every day,"

    John McCain may have admitted that he regrets picking Sarah Palin as his running mate in the 2008 presidential election, but according to the former Alaska governor, “that’s not what Sen. McCain has told me all these years.” The one-time Republican vice-presidential candidate told The Daily Mail on Thursday that she feels a “perpetual gut punch” every time she hears reports about McCain’s regrets and that having to read the news every day is “not a real fun thing.” “I attribute a lot of what we’re hearing and reading regarding McCain’s statements to his ghostwriter or ghostwriters,” Palin said. “I...

    Sarah Palin was the headliner last night at a MAGA Coalition event held at the Trump International in Washington D.C. She had lots and lots to say! She was brought to the stage by social media sensations Diamond and Silk, "A true patriot. We call her sassy and classy." Palin thanked the duo, saying "You are my sisters", quipping that "I figure, if Kanye and Trump may be brothers" … leaving the comparison for the audience to decipher, then paid tribute to Kanye West’s independent thinking. "I did read recently that Senator McCain", Palin began to say, but was immediately...

    United States presidential candidate John McCain now retains a lead over Barack Obama in several polls conducted in the past few days. Both Zogby International and Rasmussen Reports have McCain with a slight, but not statistically significant lead. The most recent Gallup tracking poll has McCain with a statistical lead of 5.0 percent. The Day to Day Politics Poll Average also has a slight, but not statistically significantly lead of 0.4% for McCain. Obama had a 6.0 percent lead in the Day to Day Politics Poll Average after the Democratic National Convention, but now is trailing after the Republican National...

    Sarah Palin said Thursday that Sen. John McCain's (R-Ariz.) admission that he regrets picking her as his running mate in his failed 2008 presidential bid is "like a perpetual gut-punch." The former Republican vice presidential nominee said the senator's recent remarks were "not what Sen. McCain has told me all these years, as he's apologized to me repeatedly for the people who ran his campaign," she told the Daily Mail before speaking at a pro-Trump PAC fundraiser. In his upcoming memoir, “The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and other Appreciations,” the 81-year-old senator laments not selecting former...

    A 30-year-old Alaska woman has been accused of ordering the rape last year of a man who allegedly owed her money for alcohol and marijuana, PEOPLE confirms. Julia Haworth, who lives in St. Michael, remains in custody on one count of solicitation of sexual assault and one count of first-degree sexual assault. She has not entered pleas to her charges and her attorney was unavailable for comment on Wednesday. Investigators believe Haworth told a male acquaintance she would give him a bottle of liquor if he sexually assaulted another man who owed her $15,000 — money he allegedly had used...

    U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., apparently has no regrets about his role in the release of the so-called Steele dossier, which is said to contain salacious allegations about then-candidate Donald Trump. In excerpts of his forthcoming book, “The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and Other Appreciations,” the 81-year-old senator – who is recuperating at home following recent cancer treatment and surgery – acknowledges that he delivered the information to then-FBI Director James Comey. “(A)nd I would do it again,” McCain writes, according to excerpts published by the Guardian. “Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell,”...

    From the sound of it, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is currently on his deathbed in Arizona to meet with old friends, nurse grudges, and express regrets. [...] McCain’s public expression of regret against Palin comes off as ungracious, as well as further proof that he still does not understand why his own presidential campaign failed. Over the last decade, Palin has been unfailingly loyal to McCain. Despite the malicious leaks against her that came from his own campaign surrogates, despite unrelenting personal attacks from McCain’s own daughter Meghan, Palin has never spoken ill of the elder McCain. She has always and...

    Rino John McCain you appear to be a bitter person (i.e.,recent comments President Trump and Sarah Palin) and guess what. "You can't take it with you." Here's a little background information I would like to share before you leave us. John McCain is the 11th wealthiest US Senator with an estimated net worth of + 20 million. And that's not all. His wife Cindy, who is a beer heiress, is worth another estimated 100 to 200 million. I guess it pays to have a governmental Congressional position and a rich wife. The election is over. Hillary LOST.

    The forthcoming final memoir from Senator John McCain, titled The Restless Wave, and a nearly two-hour-long HBO documentary on its way seem to be being used as an opportunity to settle some scores. Jonathan Martin of the New York Times has obtained copies of both books, and has spoken with the ailing senator at his ranch, where he seems to be spending his final days. This leaped out at me: While he continues to defend Ms. Palin’s performance, Mr. McCain uses the documentary and the book to unburden himself about not selecting Mr. Lieberman, a Democrat-turned-independent, as his running...
