    Sarah Palin is an outspoken proponent of gun owners’ rights, but are her gun-friendly grandchildren at risk? After Bristol Palin’s fiancé, Dakota Meyer, and her baby daddy, Levi Johnston, both came under fire for posting photos of children with guns, RadarOnline.com spoke with the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. A spokesperson warned the families that this is a “teachable moment” and they have a responsibility not to promote an “attitude of recklessness.”(Five-photo-slide-show)

In the bit on Sunday night, Palin piped up during a Q&A with Jerry Seinfeld to ask, “Just curious, Jerry, how much do you think [SNL producer] Lorne Michaels would pay me if I were to run in 2016 with Donald Trump as my running mate?”

    We know how the mainstream media piles on Sarah Palin. It’s the industry’s obsession when it’s not covering missing planes, New Jersey bridge closings, and binders full of women. Now, we’re seeing a new attack on the former Alaska governor, and it’s coming from an unexpected source: conservative media. Palin had it coming, to a degree. She made a speech in Iowa last week, and she fantastically flubbed a metaphor after an alleged teleprompter hiccup. It’s ugly on the ears: “The man can only ride you when your back is bent … so strengthen it! Then the man can’t ride...

    Sarah Palin made headlines last weekend when she said she was interested in running for President. Palin has been an important part of the Tea Party and conservative movements in this country since she came onto the scene in 2008. Nobody on the right throws red meat to a crowd quite like Palin. Her ability to sarcastically tear down liberal sacred cows is second only to Rush Limbaugh. Best of all she drives liberals up a wall. They hate her more than any other conservative in this country, including George W. Bush and Limbaugh. Watching liberals fall to pieces over...

York's column also passed along criticism of the speech by a number of Iowa Republicans. Wallace said that it was interesting to see York come "full circle," since back in 2008 he had been a staunch...

    Every party in opposition goes a little crazy. For Republicans in the early Obama era, insanity took the form of the Sarah Palin spasm. Veteran politicos took the former Alaska governor seriously as a national figure. Republican primary voters nominated the likes of Todd Akin, Christine O'Donnell and Sharron Angle. Glenn Beck seemed important enough to hold a big rally at the Lincoln Memorial. Fortunately, serious parties eventually pull back from the fever swamps. That’s what’s happening to the Republican Party. It has re-established itself as the nation’s dominant governing party. Republicans now control 69 of 99 state legislative bodies....

A referendum to restore Palin’s signature achievement from her time as Alaska governor, a state tax on oil companies, was also headed toward defeat following Tuesday’s voting, dealing a double whammy loss to Palin in her home state and highlighting her declining influence. Only four of the 15 congressional candidates endorsed by Palin nationwide this year have won their primaries, a...

    Wednesday during TMZ's segment on former Governor Sarah Palin (R-AK) getting a speeding ticket, they thought it would be entertaining television to, without provocation or explanation, have random staffers openly attack the Tea Party firebrand as a "bitch," "dumb," and a "horrible mom."

    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...

    MSNBC host Michael Eric Dyson on Wednesday lashed out at Sarah Palin, accusing the conservative of committing "treason" against Barack Obama by calling for the President´s impeachment. The guest host of the Ed Show first praised the President for "his tireless effort to help [illegal children who have crossed the border]." Dyson then fumed, "The President´s push towards positive and crucial change was met with treasonous accusations." [See video below. MP3 audio here.] During the last administration, however, Dyson called for the impeachment of George W. Bush. In a highly edited clip of Palin on Fox News, the Republican insisted,...

    NBC News ^ | July 9, 2014 | Mark Murray
    More than half of the country has a message for former Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin: enough. That's the result from a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg poll in which 54 percent of voters say they've heard enough from Palin and would prefer that she be less outspoken in political debates. That includes nearly two-thirds of Democrats, a majority of independents, and even nearly four-in-10 Republicans. And the results come as Palin has called for President Barack Obama's impeachment. (VIDEO-AT-LINK)But Palin isn't the only former politician voters wish would stay away from politics. Fifty-one percent of voters say they've heard...
  • Salon’s Joan Walsh Ridicules Sarah Palin For Praising Salon Story

    Sometimes partisan media gets so caught up in political wing nut warfare that it can’t get its head out of its own @$$. Take Salon editor-at-large Joan Walsh, a liberal journalist who made fun of former VP hopeful Sarah Palin last night for listing a Salon story, along with several others, in a Facebook post. Palin was making a point that possible 2016 presidential contender Hillary Clinton‘s so-called brain illness is being looked into just like the media tore into her for a rumor suggesting that Trig wasn’t really her baby. She linked to a number of postings — some...
  • Palin on the wane: She's even ticking off Christians (The Left worried about Christianity?)

    05/02/2014 11:02:30 AM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 45 replies
    It's generally a waste of space to reference Sarah Palin, which is why she so rarely appears here. She long ago devolved into a cartoon, and her clout (such as it was) continues to wane. She's like the incoherently choleric aunt you see once a year at Thanksgiving. She's like the real-life version of Kristin Wiig's brain-addled Aunt Linda. But... (You knew there'd be a But.) But every great once in a while, John McCain's Hail Mary gift to America says something so scintillating that we'd be remiss to ignore it. Her remark earlier this week about the religious virtues...

    Reader Richard sends this comment: I remember corresponding with you when John McCain tapped her as his choice for nominee for Vice-President. As a former Alaskan, I never saw her as the second coming, but like many people (and – I will quickly add – unlike many others)I found the potential story playing itself out of “Mrs. Palin Goes to Washington” to be very appealing. The person whom I had met a couple of times to spend time with in conversation (Alaska being a one-degree-of-separation state) was engaging, grounded, attentive to others and someone who had clearly and sincerely sought...

    Somebody will do a Ph.D thesis in political science one day on the psychology of this stuff. Follow the link to hear the full clip. It’s delightful. (snip) Imagine the kind of conservative bubble in which the thought of Sarah Palin as a “serious political contender” is considered incontestable. Imagine the kind of conservative bubble in which holding a female who once ran for vice president of the United States responsible for something she said in a public speech is considered an act of sexism and disloyalty. To be clear, I’m not offended by this freakshow vulgarian in the least....
