Posted on 01/29/2013 11:46:10 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Sarah Palin's break up with Fox News should not have been, well, breaking news, as she had publicly complained in August on Facebook that the network had canceled her appearances at the Republican National Convention. And going back even further, Palin didn't give Fox the scoop in October 2011 when she announced she wasn't going to run for president. Still, the news of the Fox split overtook Twitter and the news cycle by storm.
One thing I've learned in my years covering Palin, which began on Aug. 29, 2008, when Sen. John McCain stunned the country by selecting her as his running mate: Everyone has an opinion on whatever she does, and she can get clicks and coverage like no one else.
The prevailing theory now is that since Palin no longer has a megaphone like Fox News through which she can blast her opinions, her moment is now officially over.
The 'Ends' of Sarah Palin
It might be true, but there have been so many "ends of Sarah Palin" that it's almost too hard to keep track of them all. She was over when she lost the 2008 campaign, she was over when she quit the Alaska governorship, she was over when she decided to do a reality show, she was over when she decided not to run for president, and now again, she's over because her appearances on Fox News are over...

Answer: An ever growing Obscurity.
Make no mistake, the libs and the lib media are SCARED TO DEATH of her. They know the only thing that stopped her in 2008 was john “you kids get off of my lawn!” mccain.
Breaking news for the MSM: Sarah is smarter than the Dork-in-Chief.
Again: Sarah is smarter than the Dork-in-Chief.
She earned her spurs. She is not a quota baby.
He couldn’t lift a spur. He is a quota baby.
Learn it, love it, live it.
WOW ABC..obsessed much? Libs try telling us that they think she is irrelevant..yet all they do is CONSTANTLY talk about her..Sarah Palin is the only one that scares libs this much that they think about her 24/7
Maybe she can go to work for Sens. Hatch and Rubio, and help move the amnesty bill forward.
Yet here you are, again, berating her “deluded followers” (your words) on a thread ABOUT Sarah Palin! People who are in the news EVERY DAY are kind of the opposite of obscure. Right?
There is only one way back. She would have to want to run for a Senate seat or something.
Otherwise, she will be ignored.
Answer: An ever growing Obscurity.
Didn’t she say something about ‘preaching and different choirs’?
Please provide us all a link to where she endorsed an amnesty bill.
20th Century thinking.
I think she doesn’t enjoy it anymore.
I expect her to drop out and return to the family business in Alaska.
Once Sarah just spoke the truth. They tried to silence her. Then just her presence or name screamed the truth out loud. So they tried to blacken those. The more something is repressed and fought to keep away the larger it grows. She looms larger than ever. Whether it be her or the reference to her. Sarah is truth and they all know it.
Calling Glen Beck, you have your party waiting on line 1..
Palin endorsed Hatch (over a Tea Party candidate with excellent conservative credentials, mind you). She knew what Hatch was all about when she did so.
Anyway, I never said she “endorsed” amnesty (past tense). You put those words in my mouth.
I only said she is free, now, to work for her BFF Hatch. (Isn’t that the thrust of your OP? Questioning what can Sarah do now? So I put forth an answer.)
And Orrin Hatch is CLEARLY pushing an amnesty bill.
I know it hurts, but facts are facts. Queen Sarah gave us Orrin Hatch — and Orrin Hatch is bringing us amnesty.
I don’t think so. She now has very little way to even get attention. Attention alone means little. The libs talk about her now because they are closing the book on her.
Perhaps she has decided the US is over.
She could try Dancing with the Stars. I bet the ratings would be really high. Hmmm?
Honestly, she’s not seemed happy. Her family keeps doing dumb stuff. She went through some superficial appearance changes last year.
All of that says to me: dissatisfied person.
I’ll bet the old days in Alaska with the fishing business are now “the good old days”.
I think she expected bigger and better....
Preaching and different choirs??? She wants to OWN & MANAGE a station...She wants to be another Ted Turner, Connie Chung and Barbara wawa all rolled into one. Ain't going to happen.
She is already the head of the TEAse Party.
She ran on a ticket with John McCain, why aren’t you blaming her for his amnesty efforts?
>> She ran on a ticket with John McCain, why arent you blaming her for his amnesty efforts?
Well, now that you mention it... she never did speak out against McAmnesty either, did she?
Good point... I guess we know where her heart really lies.
The Begich (D-AK) seat is up in 2014. It has Sarah's name all over it.
Sometimes, if the road forward isn't clear, its time to go home and wait until it is.
sarah needs to head a real movement within the GOP—The Liberty Club. Not a party, but a group to remind Republicans who they are and why they were elected. She needs to help set a new core of Conservatism as Goldwater did long ago. If there was no Goldwater there would never have been a Reagan. Maybe move to Arizona and run for Senate or Congress. We need her out there in Government—a “Fifth Column” within the beast to find its weak spots and kill it!
Sarah will survive I’m sure and do well in whatever endeavors she chooses. I just don’t think it will be in elective politics. You don’t preach to political groups and win them over. JMO.
I am not a fan of Sarah Palin. Yes, I did use the terms “deluded followers.” A delusion is a misinterpretation of an outside event; i.e. a person thinks rustling leaves are voices talking to him. Well I believe she found out which words make her lots of money so she gives those words to people who think she in a true believer. Her listeners are deluded, not crazy but deluded. She is todays Elmer Gantry and the folks who follow her are nice simple believers. Sorry! Your ight I should stay away from threads about her.
Isn’t it funny how idiots post on threads about her how irrelevant and obscure she is? Really?
I love Palin just because it makes libtards’ heads explode.
Keep it up Sarah.
I wish it was true but I think the libs know that as much as the media worked to re-elect Obama they will work ten times as hard to prevent Palin from being elected and like it or not the MSM can make a huge difference. I don't think they are scared of her. I think they see her as a light-weight at best.
If I were Sarah I’d set up a tax exempt group that provides scholarships for low information high school graduates to attend colleges like Hillsdale or Liberty. We need someone to lead the way back to conservative Constitutional principles.
First the libheads would explode because she is helping the poverty class and second that selected students would be going to conservative colleges. I can see liberal guidance counselors grimacing as they hand over the entry forms for the Sarah Palin scholarship program.
I hate to say it but Palin needs this kind of public redemption because she has been so viciously and wrongly characterized.
Sarah needs an Act II and just running for a Senate post is not enough. I am sure she is doing good philanthropy, but it needs wider recognition. She needs to find ways to un-demonize herself with the elites and ill-informed.
Sometimes it takes something like this just to show that you CARE as much as I hate to put it in those terms.
OR, she can sign up as a regular on The View or bump Tina Fey on SNL. Even Nixon had to have it socked to him.
