Palin at Fox: The next RNC will be at FNC

Palin at Fox?  The next RNC will be on FNC

In an earlier era of American history, the road to the White House passed through the office of the Assistant Secretary of the Navy.   That was the door Theodore Roosevelt used in 1897 and it worked so well that others followed in his wake, including a distant cousin named Franklin, who pulled off the same trick in 1913.

Now it appears, the Republican nomination anyway, must pass through the doors of the Fox News Channel.  Sarah Palin was announced tonight as a paid Fox News Contributor, joining another RNC presidential hopeful, Governor Mike Huckabee on the network’s payroll.  Now, we will hear her screechy voice (actually they say Lincoln had a screechy voice too,) and feel her fiery rhetoric uncensored, as she calls a spade a spade for middle America.

Most of the networks jealously ignored the event although many of their toady political writers pontificated on the Palin hiring as clear evidence of the unabashed Republicanism of Fox.  Their own uncritical, even gushing coverage of the Obama administration hardly qualifies them as non partisan.  Still, they huffed and puffed self righteously, irritated by the unavoidable numbers.  They are splitting the Democrat votes while giving Fox the sole ownership of the other half of the country.  In a strictly business sense, Fox wins, hand down.

But even more maddening is the realization that the sexy, moose hunter from Alaska will no longer be spoon fed by them, sound bite, by carefully chosen sound bite, to the American public.  Palin will be able to fight back with luxurious five minute segments.  And, in case you forgot, she is a scrapper.  And they, the libs, have ridiculed and abused her children.  Look out.  A mama bear don’t allow that sort of thing.

The odds are very high that she will misstep or misspeak during her FOX tenure.  Huckabee may not know how to pick the right people for the Parole Board but he sure can walk the television high wire.  But can the hot, popular Palin?  And she will likely misspeak because the things that will drive her popularity on television are not the things that make for a winning candidate.

There is a reason why Republican candidates are always thought of as dumb, Lincoln, Coolidge, Ike, Ford, Reagan, Bush and Democrats as dull, Dukakis, Gore, Kerry.  I call them Dumb and Duller.  It is because entertainment and politics are different disciplines.  And discipline is the correct word here.  The entertainer must make us laugh or cry or get angry.  And a politician who does that is bound to lose.

Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee and Newt Gingrich?  All FNC contributors?  There is one last piece in this puzzle.  The Fox News Channel must soon secure Mitt Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts.  And then, with a clean sweep, they will have them all in the stable and the RNC can take place at the FNC.

  1. Yes, the entertainer must make us laugh or cry or get angry. But we dont want a boring politician, we also want a politician to be like an entertainer, to make us laugh, cry, and angry sometimes.

  2. Thanks for the excellent analysis. I believe it is the Republican voters that are “dumb” because they have learned not to think for themselves, but just be responsive to traditional authority. And it is the Democratic voters who are “dull”, because they don’t get carried away by patriotic hype and flag waving. Each party gets what it deserves.

    What America deserves is Huckabee.

  3. Yet, there you are Doug, the all-too willing participant who’ll pimp themselves out to any ‘net in need of a squawking head on demand to fill up time between commercial spots.

  4. Hey, David “kike” Black, how’s it going? Came back out of your gutter to make a comment? Good job, now crawl back into your hole. LOL

  5. You don’t have my wife, because she would slit her own throat rather than consort with a failed hillbilly “businessman” who was too dumb not to get hoodwinked and is STILL too dumb not to kick money up to some idiot on the pyramid scheme.

  6. misterwarmth,

    Wow! That post really fit your name! LOL

    Why don’t you shut the fuck up? LOL

    This is the only kind of communication that David “the kike” Black understands, he has a long history of bullying others around, and the only way to handle him is to give him some of his own medicine. LOL

  7. Note that the only way Tex can attack me is by calling me a racist term for Jews, which is typical of southern redneck behavior.

    I attack others because they are stupid and ignorant middle class lemmings who actually believe in something, no matter if it’s real or not, like politicians or religion.

    It’s all bullshit and if you don’t think so, you are an idiot.

  8. Tex is a follower. Look, he put his faith in Amway and got burned. He deserved it. Anybody who is with Amway deserves to get burned. Amway is crap like their products.

  9. David “the kike” Black,

    There are a variety of other ways I could attack you, but the way I use is the only level you understand. LOL

    You attack others because you’re a jerk. LOL


    You don’t even know me, and you definitely don’t know Amway products! LOL

  10. I don’t “know” you? You’re whole freakin’ sob story with Amway has been plastered all over the internet for the last 3 years! I don’t know Amway products? They’ve only been selling for the last 40 years. That’s enough time to know they suck and whoever sells that crap is a jerk.

  11. I don’t have a “sob story,” I have facts regarding the ATS (Amway Tool Scam), which has ripped off millions of people for several decades, to the tune of 10s of billions of dollars.

    Amway is a scam, and here’s why: Amway pays out as little money as they can get away with, so they support the higher level IBOs ripping off their downline via the tool scam.

    As a result, about 99% of IBOs operate at a net loss, while the top 1% make several TIMES more from their Amway tool scam than from the Amway products. This was made illegal in the UK in 2008, but our FTC is unable to pull their heads out of their butts to stop it here.

    Read about it on my blog, I suggest you start here: and forward the information to everyone you know, so they don’t get scammed.

    And I’ve been educating others for nearly 5 years, not 3.

    Amway has been around for over 50 years, they have won numerous product related awards, and had significant price reductions over the past year. You don’t know jack shit. That’s enough errors to know you suck and are a jerk.

  12. You say you don’t have a sob story yet you can’t resist telling everyone again about your amway sob story. Who cares? Just you. People get cheated everyday. That’s life, deal with it and shut the hell up. You sound like a whining bitch.

  13. Where have I told “everyone again” about MY Amway sob story?

    I tell the overall ATS factual story.

    Who cares? Everyone should.

    Since people get cheated every day, that means they should let Bernie Madoff out of prison?

    I know it’s life, and I AM dealing with it, by alerting others, so you shut the hell up, ASSHOLE.

    You sound like a stupid bitch.

  14. “Who cares? Everyone should.”

    Right, world economies are faltering and we’re supposed to worry that some middle class dumb asses who sold shit products lost money in a pyramid scheme.

  15. We already knew you don’t care about others, except your make-believe “people”, David “the kike” Black, so you have NOTHING meaningful to add to this discussion.

  16. I certainly don’t care about middle class losers who get mixed up in pyramid schemes and lose money.

    My people are only “make believe” to neo-Nazi types and other redneck Jew haters who think the Holocaust was a myth.

  17. You are a Jew hating redneck, Tex. Only Jew hating rednecks use terms like “kike.”

    The only point here is on the top of your head, fuckwit.

  18. Tell me,, Tex, why should anyone care that you or anyone else lost money in a pyramid scheme? You have your own stupidity to blame. Just accept that fact. if you and all those other people had real jobs instead, it wouldn’t have happened.

  19. misterwarped,

    I call David “the kike” Black a kike because when I first viewed this blog, he was in his usual “attack mode” against others. The only way I’ve found to control a bully is to give him some of his own medicine. I have Jewish friends, and the kike term used with David “the kike” Black has been long explained as a term used to describe this single individual. So go back to your hole in the ground, fuckwithout. LOL

    For the same reason Bernie Madoff will spend the rest of his life in prison and rot in hell – he lied to others for his own financial gain, and needed to be stopped. If I’m stupid, so are millions of others, including people otherwise considered to be quite intelligent and honest. I’ll accept the fact that you’re a jerk who doesn’t give a damn about his fellow man. Most of us had, and still have, real jobs. There is NOTHING wrong with the Amway business minus the ATS (Amway Tool Scam). You’re stupid.

  20. Hehe … Tex is the big “champion of the common man!”

    “If I’m stupid, so are millions of others, including people otherwise considered to be quite intelligent and honest.”

    Yes, you’re right for a change. There are millions of others as stupid as you are. But what people are “considered” is irrelevant at the end of the day when you see who is still surviving with all their wealth intact.

    Honest? Don’t make me laugh. What century are you living in? Honesty does not pay. Wise up, you ignorant bastard.

    It’s no wonder you lost money. You deserved it.

  21. By the way, for the rest of you idealistic saps out there who still cling to your antiquated notions of “America,” let me clue you in to a little secret … it’s every man for himself now. Screw democracy, screw capitalism, screw everything! Survival at all cost is all that matters now. Why not/ The whole world is going down the shitter. Who cares now?

  22. Look at Doug Wead, do you think he cares about “the common man”? Look who he’s got to cozy up to maintain his wealth, a bunch of stinking ex-commie bastards. You don’t think he’s not thinking of his survival as the world crumbles around us?

  23. About 1/3 of the people were for the British and about 1/3 were neutral during the Revolutionary War. What’s your point, you moron/kike?

    Besides, most of my comment was directed at how you view others and not caring if they are being scammed, not the economic shape of the country. But as a kike like Madoff, I know that isn’t important to you.

  24. You were too stupid not to get involved with pyramid schemes, so you go what you deserved.

    Madoff’s victims were too stupid not to know beforehand that he was a crook. There were ways that people could have known if they just had done their homework instead of trusting his reputation.

  25. There are too many millions of people who got scammed to blame the problem on “stupidity,” the problem is the BIG LIE the ATS represents. Go to hell, kike.

    Same with Madoff. There is no way all of those people were simply “stupid,” Madoff is spending the rest of his life in jail to pay for his BIG LIE. Go to hell, kike.

  26. Getting scammed does NOT make one an idiot, kike.

    If you think this is hell, stand by. Of all places on this planet, America is the furthest from hell as you can get.
