SARAH PALIN DROPS TO HER KNEES IN HOPES OF BECOMING “THE VIEW” CO-HOST

The never ending story of Sarah Palin’s lust for popularity and limelight continues as she hints at a desire to join the cast of the ABC morning talk show “The View.” In an article written in The Hollywood Reporter about the renewal of her Sportsman Channel reality show “Amazing America,” Palin offers her opinion of what the multiple Daytime Emmy Award winning show needs to revitalize itself after the departure of 75% of its cast:


THR:Any interest in doing a political talk show, either on TV, radio or the Internet?

Palin:Maybe. But the politics would have to be interspersed with a whole lot of fun and real life and inspiration showcasing American work ethic, because those topics are all pretty much the antithesis of today’s politics, which I find incorrigibly disastrous! It’d be so much fun to shake it up taking on issues that make audiences objectively consider all sides, and I’d do it with my own real-life groundedness, candor and commonsense that I’m known for. Media needs that today, versus the condescension that oozes from TV and radio. 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.

The American work ethic? Today’s politics are incorrigibly disastrous? Real-life groundedness? So what is Palin saying here exactly other than “the View” needs a conservative white woman to be folsky and home spun and of course represent conservatism for a larger audience? I fell on the floor nearly laughing at the thought that Palin could be a greater “voice of reason” than Barbara Walters has been for 17 season on “The View.”

There would be a part of me that would take a perverse pleasure in seeing Whoopi Goldberg paired with Rachel Maddow on one side of the table and Ann Coulter and Sarah Palin on the other. Can you imagine the debates? ABC can you imagine the ratings?!

    So wonderful. Subjects and verbs that not only do not agree, but do not seem ever to have been introduced to each other. The profound reverence paid to one’s own idiot clichés. The word-like collection of letters—”groundedness”—that seem to have been translated from the original Moron. And, especially, a citation of the “American work ethic” from a woman who quit her actual job halfway through the gig and who has been on the grift ever since John McCain, that fathead, foisted her on the world. America is, indeed, amazing.”

      I finally stopped laughing long enough to do a reading ease test on that passage and it came out 56.1% and was written on a 10.8 grade level.

    Taking anything seriously that comes from the fevered mind of Sarah Palin is never a good idea. Whatever the best-selling author and reality television star who was a half-term governor of Alaska and the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee has to say is usually a melange of malevolent musings masquerading as principle. Today, Palin jumped on the impeachment bandwagon. And as much as I would like to ignore her, I can’t this time.

    The Post’s Aaron Blake points out exactly why I can’t let Palin just vent and move on. “She’s the first Republican of any significant national stature to make this call,” he writes. “And she’s the kind of figure who could potentially recruit others to the cause — people who will want to be heard. Palin surely doesn’t carry the kind of weight she once did in the GOP, but she still has a significant tea party following and is highly popular among the conservative base.” And it adds more credence to my contention that House Speaker John Boehner’s impending lawsuit against Obama is really a dress rehearsal for what Palin wants.

    The case Palin makes against President Obama in an op-ed for Breitbart is based on willfully ignored facts and an irrational hatred of a man twice elected by the American people. “Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president,” she wrote. “His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ‘no mas.’” Let that metaphor marinate for a little bit.

    Depending on how you read the statistics, Obama has been expelling undocumented immigrants at a historic pace. According to the Economist, “America is expelling illegal immigrants at nine times the rate of 20 years ago (see article); nearly 2m so far under Barack Obama, easily outpacing any previous president.” Because of this, immigration activists have branded Obama the “deporter in chief.”

    Believe it or not, neo, we Dems would love for the Repugs in the House to attempt to impeach the president. I mean, it worked so well for you the last time, dontchaknow?

    • sarahbloch Says:

      Impeached, yes; found guilty in the Senate, no. And even had Clinton been removed from office it would have given Al Gore the experience as a President that would have swept Bush aside in 2000 and changed American history for the better possibly even avoiding the 9/11 attacks, the Iraq war and seeing the housing crisis for what it was and eliminating the Great Recession before it could be born.

    • sarahbloch Says:

      You cannot Impeach a President simply because the fringe in your party dislike the man for the color of his skin, his religion [since there is no test allowed under the Constitution] or even for his political ideology.

    • sarahbloch Says:

      Read Neocon and learn:

      “The situation in 2014 looks very different. It is hard to make the case that a new age of liberalism even exists to be rolled back. The shadow of Reagan still looms large. Bill Clinton, the Democrat who broke the Republicans’ streak of victories in 1992, did so as a centrist New Democrat who repudiated the liberal doctrine of his day on issues like race and welfare and diligently courted the blue-collar, white ethnic vote. His famous “triangulation” consisted of compromises with Republicans, and he made so many that conservatives complained he was stealing their ideas.

      Today many on the right, including the reformicons, insistently depict Obama as a radical, but they are well aware he kept all but the top sliver of George W. Bush’s giant tax cut. And for all the efforts to discredit Obamacare, it was ratified by the most conservative Supreme Court in modern history. Every reformer I talked to acknowledged that the principle of universal coverage is here to stay, in whatever form, including the operations advanced by Republicans who want to “repeal and replace” Obama’s plan, the basis of which was hatched from a conservative policy suggestion that originated in 1989 from the Heritage Foundation.”

  4. Please don’t throw us in the impeachment patch, Mr. Neo. Anything but that! We Democrats are terribly afraid of impeachment.

    Boehner, unlike former half-term governor Palin, is not an idiot. He realizes that impeaching Obama would be the death of the GOP. He, therefore, is attempting to placate the racist/nativist TEA Party base of the GOP, with the weak tea of a lawsuit. My guess is that the racists/nativists will not be so easily placated.

    Every call for Obama’s impeachment is another step toward HRC winning the presidency. So, please proceed.

    • dcobranchi Says:

      Neo,

      Please feel free to ignore my advice. In fact, I encourage you to ignore it. You should shout from the rooftops at every opportunity that you want the House to vote to impeach the president.
