What Difference Does Sarah Palin Make?

It’s my understanding that Gov. Palin was offered a contract by FOX, and she decided not to renew the arrangement,” the source close to Palin told RCP. “She remains focused on broadening her message of common-sense conservatism across the country and will be expanding her voice in the national discussion.”
The source declined to say whether Palin would pursue a television contract with another news network, such as CNN.

Found curled up weeping in a corner with his thumb in his mouth, Anderson Cooper could only sob “Nooooo” at the thought. Over at MSNBC, Piers Morgan was channeling Vincent again:

Vincent: Oh no. The problem. The problem, Pansy! It’s started again!
Pansy: Oh! Oh, don’t worry, darling!
Vincent: Ohhh… ohhh…
Pansy: I say!
Vincent: I must have fruit!

What will Sarah do? I’m really not bothered in any case, so long as the Lefty heads keep ‘sploding.

    Moonbat heads asploding has always been a very good thing in my book. Better than real splodey cause it’s far more amusing for me.

    Hey, Mrs. Palin?

    Supposin’ you’re reading this…

    It’s about time to reload and reengage.

    Bring the jumbo flamethrower, too.

    We need you.

    You know, of course, that the latest meme is that FNC let her go, not the other way around.

    A whip ’round the usual suspect sites shows that the troll army is out in force. twitchy highlights a tweet from Junk Uighur, or whatever his name is, claiming “We got her!”, channeling the general who said “we got him” after Saddam was captured.

    zurawik’s report over at baltimore sun was really shoddy … 2 glaring errors, and that was in the Headline!

    he’s trying to push the meme that Fox dumped Palin, when we know ole Roger the Dodger tried his darndest to sign her for a further contract … and Todd ran interference (remember the public Fox tantrum before the election?)

    and now Palin has ended her time with Fox

    so sad, too bad Rog … do I hear grinding of GOP Establishment teeth?

    They’ll eventually shift to “She quit again!”, not recognizing that Sarah has no quit in her.

    I’m thinking one of two options. (1) She’s going to travel the country to help elect conservatives in 2014 and then run for POTUS in 2016. (2) She’ll be hosting her own show on The Blaze TV.

    I think she’s wanting to devote more time to helping candidates for 2014. I don’t think she’s giving much thought to the presidency at this point.

    Of course, I thought she would kindly tell John McCain “thanks, but no thanks” in 2008 — having an important job and a newborn to focus on. So she could be about to announce her 2016 presidential bid later today…

    You betcha and they continuously show how threatened and worried they are (just like NeoCon Roger Ailes) just take a look at their actions since this story broke. What does ABC do? They post a shortened story of Sarah NOT renewing her contract with FOX but they autostart and embedded video from last year using Dick Cheney NeoCon #2, attacking Sarah. Oh, THAT wasn’t obvious. ROFL No, Christie, Jeb and Ru Ru Rubio aint gonna be our pres, so they better not be forced on the Republicans like they did Romney #losers

    I’m sure there were many times Palin regretted not saying, “thanks, but no thanks”, but she probably wouldn’t have the opportunities she now has. She’s gone through hell to get them though.

    I hope it’s the former, because, if it is, my might start to care about fighting the national government again. Right now, I best hope lies in the Several States.

    What has not killed her has made the lady stronger.

    That’s very true about all of us.
