Scarborough: Palin represented a time in politics that is passing us very quickly
MSNBC's Morning Joe ^ | January 28, 2013 | Drew Katchen

Posted on 01/28/2013 8:47:24 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Former Republican star and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and FOX news ended their partnership on Friday after three years, a source close to Palin told the Real Clear Politics Web site, the Morning Joe panel discussed Palin’s exit on Monday morning.

“Sarah Palin represented a time and place in American politics and not 2008 so much as 2010. And that time is passing us very quickly. Party leaders are finally understanding that,” Joe Scarborough told the panel.

Palin last appeared on Fox on December 19, 2012 when she spoke with the channel’s Greta Van Susteren about Benghazi and the two discussed TIME’s Person of the Year.

Scarborough called the move “important” because FOX News president Roger Ailes has been the “de facto” head of the GOP.

“He’s run the party; he’s run the conservative movement. And when Roger Ailes decides she’s not worth the trouble, it means conservatism is moving in a new direction,” Scarborough said...

The GOP stooges can just keep telling themselves that about Sarah Ping!

Sarah's ping list is on a roll tonight.

Party leaders are at opposition to conservatism and conservatives. I should say BOTH party’s leaders are at war with Palin and all conservatives, yet it is ONLY the conservatives that are political adults.

“Have a penny, don’t spend two. Keep government small and effective. Leave the people with more of their freedom and money.”
To those who want to rule people through government, this is a threatening statement.

Uh oh. If Scarborough says she is through then she is through.

All true conservatives hang on every word Joe says.

Please note the several uses of the word “hang”.

No Joe, you dumbass; Roger got pissed because Palin ran her reality TV program on another channel.

Scarborough’s a hollow loudmouth - on the National Review summit panel he participated on this the weekend, he constantly talked over other panelists with much more to contribute like John Podhoretz and Bill Kristol - to last on MSNBC he’s got to be a mealy-mouthed bore......

What is passing is only Prolog—the first act is about to start. The orchestra is tuning up and the play will start soon. Is it a Tragedy or a Comedy —only time will tell. one of the main players is Sarah Palin, but others will join her, Rubio, Rand Paul, and Paul Ryan. There will be comedy relief in the form of Donald Trump, and a great monolog by George Bush. There will be action in the streets, and yes, some will lose their lives, but in the end the nation will recover and enter a new period of freedom. America’s best days are yet to come—her true greatness will come when faced with her greatest challenges. Like England fighting alone in the Battle of Britain, we will rise with a new patriotism and a renewed sense of mission. The days to come will be filled with new glories, and the world will wonder and be amazed at the land that will come out of this conflict.

The GOP and the Soros flying monkeys are in for a huge surprise.
The demise of the Tea Party and the growing Conservative movement have been greatly exaggerated.

I caught Scarborough a couple weeks ago... he’s off the deep end. Pretends to understand what is happening in middle America. Thinks the path to GOP power is thru some mealy-mouthed acquiescence to moderation, on gays, immigration, ad nauseum.

Joe- your time is passed. You never were a true blood Conservative. You don’t recognize it; you don’t represent us.
Stop pretending to speak for us, or interpret for the Beltway and Urban America.

Sarah Palin will have a much greater effect than you ever will. She isn’t done yet. You nearly are.

When Scarborough sees Sarah Palin, he sees the past.

When exit82 sees Sarah Palin, he sees the future.

“Sarah Palin represented a time and place in American politics and not 2008 so much as 2010. And that time is passing us very quickly. Party leaders are finally understanding that,” Joe Scarborough told the panel.

Right. Right. She’s a has-been. So tell us then, Joe ,why it is that her endorsements are Gold Standard? Do you realize Joe, that her endorsement of Deb Fischer was a simple post on her Facebook page, which brought Fischer from a long way last to first - up and over two guys who spent millions in a primary yet they and all their infrastructure and party backing lost out - to a Facebook post??!!! Her endorsement of Richard Mourdock in the Indiana Primary forced the Indiana GOP, The RNC and all the other Super PACs to PULL THIER ADS when she endorsed him - after they’d committed to a full throated backing for Lugar. Ted Cruz in Texas stated that once the endorsement for him came from Sarah Palin, he said the phone didn’t stop ringing for over a week - all calls being donations to his campaign, causing Ted to remark that in his time in politics he’d never seen an effect like that. Ever.

Tell you what, Joe. You and all the other liberal idiots keep telling yourselves that Sarah Palin is no longer relevant. Yeah...you keep doin that :)

It has never been more clear.

The role that Joe Scarborough is playing has been seen before.

Joe Scarborough is the new "Lord Haw Haw".

His mission is to demoralize the troops and patriotic citizens, and the agenda of the masters that he serves is just as ugly as that of his role model.

No conservative party will ever win without the support of conservative women. And conservative women did not like the way Palin was treated.

Even people who weren’t Palin supporters in the primaries did not like the way she was treated after nomination.

The GOP and other ersatz conservative groups and individuals are apparently still as clueless now as they were then. Six years and counting and after the disastrous 2012 campaign and they STILL can’t figure it out.

Oh—Joe Scarborough represents young dead girls, also, with his friend, Condit.....he’s not just an obama, leftist drone-—he is a controlled, bribed little puppet “mouthpiece” of the Left-—to force their sick, immoral agenda.

His soul was sold to the devil years ago. Wonder what became of the medical examiner who vouched for that girl’s “bump” on the head——you know the one who had body parts hidden in a warehouse.

- The news that Sarah Palin will no longer be a paid contributor to Fox News puts an exclamation point on the end of an era, or at least a chapter, in U.S. political history.

- Once the face of an energetic and politically potent Tea Party movement, Palin is leaving Fox at a time when polls show the Tea Party at an all-time low in both membership and favorability. Her departure also coincides with calls by some leading Republicans for their party to stop saying things that erode the GOP brand and turn off voters in droves.

It appears the talking points have been distributed.

No Joe. Sarah Palin is not irrelevant. She is just busy working on her next course of action. Maybe it is another of her great commentaries. Maybe she has a new media outlet that will use her talents. Whatever it is, it will kick the pointy asses of the Scarboroughs of the world like they were tin drums. Oh, what a sound that makes!

If Ailes’ “conservative” movement is “moving in a NEW direction”; it’s more of a “whichever way the wind blows” movement instead of a Conservative movement. - Conservatism is having values that date back to the CONSTITUTION and the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE and sticking to them.

I tried watching him interview Bill Maher, I'm guessing it was about ten years ago. It lasted 10 minutes. It was truly vile, the way Joe let this guy spew his hatred, I turned off the tv in disgust.

I've never been able to watch either of them since.

Scarborough called the move “important” because FOX News president Roger Ailes has been the “de facto” head of the GOP.

As much as I despise dead girl in office Scarborough...he is quite right.

FOX and the GOP leaning pundits they have on board there all parrot the same moderate let's just get elected by moving left crap...watching O'Reilly last night he was actually more straight on illegals than damned Yoda Rove that so many here used to get on their knees for incessantly.

GOP leadership is way out of touch with their base.

Ailes is still pissed his boy Petraeus imploded over punani and he had to settle for Romney.

It's not that FOX is liberal ala Obama but it's just they are moderates.

Palin is great but our demographics are not what they were in 1976-1980 when Reagan forcibly took the mantle from the Yankee social liberal GOP and forged west and South to win it all...and it was hard even then

Did anyone see the graphic he had on about how racial voting patterns have changed and party make up as well since 72...chilling baby...to the bone....damn it has happened much quicker than I figured thanks to of course ...white liberals and guess where they are?....usual squareheads

Our only hope for now is to motivate the white base....that is it...the rest is plain bullshit...pandering weakness of folks ashamed of what they are and if we keep on that we will lose yet another time..isn't twice in a row enough?

but worse...it's just a finger in the dike...eventually all of this will be settled by force...and we may lose

Precisely. We rarely watch TV news, not even Fox.
We’re sick of pundits spewing nonsense.
I would watch Fox, whenever I knew ahead of time that Sarah Palin was scheduled, or someone else I wanted to see, but that’s about it.
We watch sports and a limited number of favorite programs,which are mostly reruns from the past....LOL.

Watching Palin was a good thing, but we would watch her through links that others (mostly you) would post rather than watch through the tv.

It will be interesting to see who leads the next conservative renewal, whether she will help in it or fade away. Either way, she's someone that deserves respect, I still have a hard time with the idiots who come on here bad mouthing her as if she deserves some kind of comeuppance because liberals hate her, or like pissant, because their candidate was ignored.

I’ve never paid much attention to National Review, but the “summit” program they put on last weekend provided a couple of days of good viewing on C-Span, including a couple of hours of Charles Krauthammer on Friday night and a panel of conservative women such as Kellyann Conover and Mona Charon - Charon in fact said something I’ve been waiting to hear for a long time - while some were pushing the idea that ‘pubs aren’t doing well lately because of “ten little things”, Charon said it was because of “one big thing” - that they’ve let the ‘rats get way with blaming Bush for the economic downturn, when in fact the collapse resulted from ‘rat policies on giving away houses to the poor over the last 30 years, and it isn’t so much the fault of the banks or Wall Street as of Government - anyhow, I think NR did a public service, and C-Span did too by covering it in real time, by providing this form........
