Last January, Former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin’s contract was not renewed by Roger Ailes of Fox News.
Since then, the number one cable news channel in America has seen their expressive numbers diminish, as, editorially, they began an ideological swing to Left of Center.
So, what do you do, when your ship is traveling off-course? You make a course correction.
In announcing her return to Fox News, Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes said,
I have great confidence in her and am pleased that she will once again add her commentary to our programming. I hope she continues to speak her mind.
Governor Palin will make her triumphant return on the morning show “Fox & Friends,” on Monday. In addition to appearing on the Fox News Channel, Governor Palin will also contribute to Fox Business Network.
It was a smart move.
Sarah connects with those of us in America’s Heartland. She was the bright spot for the Republicans during the Presidential Campaign of 2008, when she almost dragged ol’ Juan McAmnesty’s wrinkled rear across the goal line.
During that campaign, the legend of Sarah Palin began to grow, as stories of her jumping off the campaign buss to run into Walmart to buy Trig some diapers started circulating in Americans’ e-mails. Her leadership ability, along with her homespun honesty and forth-righteousness, are refreshing, causing her to standing apart for the G.O.P. Moderate Elite.
Sarah Palin tells it like it is, as theblaze.com reports
Comedian Bill Maher brought the wrath of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin upon himself when he reportedly referred to her special needs son as “retarded” during a comedy show at the Palms in Las Vegas on Saturday.
Former Las Vegas TV personality Ron Futrell claims he was escorted out of the event after he confronted Maher several times during the show at some point after the tasteless joke about Trig Palin.
“I’ve got a son with special needs,” Futrell told the Review-Journal. “It didn’t surprise me that Maher said it. It surprised me that a lot of people laughed at that joke.”
After learning about Maher’s so-called “joke,” Palin went after Maher on Twitter.
“Hey bully, on behalf of all kids whom you hatefully mock in order to make yourself feel big, I hope one flattens your lily white wimpy a#*,” Palin wrote.
“I’m in your neck of the woods this weekend, little Bill. Care to meet so I can tell you how I really feel?” she added.
Something tells us Maher won’t accept Palin’s invitation.
I enjoy hanging out on the internet chat boards, reading the messages of Liberals and Moderates alike, as their heads explode over the Former Alaskan Governor.
The great thing is, that doesn’t phase her at all.
Back in March, she spoke to the annual CPAC Convention, her speech was wonderful, and sounded like it came straight from the Heartland of America.
At the time, I wrote,
… it struck me, while at lunch with friends, after church on Sunday, just how disconnected the professional politicians, pundits, and prevaricators (but, I repeat myself) up in the Beltway are from all of us average citizens out here in America’s Heartland.
I guess what really triggered this revelation was remembering Sarah Palin’s speech from CPAC’s Saturday Session, in which she spoke just like you or me, having a political discussion with our friends and family. She was bringing up some spot-on political points, when, all of the sudden, she got a mischievous smile on her face and began telling the audience how Todd gave her a wonderful gift the Christmas before last: a gun rack for her ATV. She talked about how cool it was, and then told the crowd that, for this Christmas, she gave Todd a new hunting rifle. She quipped,
Yep, Todd got the rifle and I got the rack.
As the stunned audience quickly broke out in thunderous laughter and applause, Sarah stood there, grinning like the Cheshire Cat, while, at the same time, reaching under the podium to retrieve a 44-ounce Super Big Gulp Diet Coke, which she slowly sipped from, still grinning, then holding it over her head , imitating Lady Liberty holding her torch. The picture of this seminal moment has since gone viral, much to the chagrin of Liberals, on both sides of the political aisle, whose heads have been exploding, like balloons which have blown up beyond their usefulness.
Beltway politicians and Pundits live in a bubble. They have disassociated themselves from the common people. The only time the Beltway Elite Republicans seem to pay attention to the wishes of Americans in the Heartland is when we melt the Congressional Phone Lines down and threaten their well-paying jobs.
That’s why the rise of the Tea Party movement and America’s return to Conservatism, which resulted in the political massacre known as the Midterm Elections, was such a surprise to them. In their self-imposed isolation, they actually thought that the America people wanted them to continue their deal-making, soul-selling, business-as-usual politics.
That is why voices like Governor Palin’s are needed…to let the stale, stodgy Beltway Dwellers know that they are out-of-touch with Americans in the Heartland…you and me.
Sarah Palin reminds the leeches of us…the people whom they are supposed to be serving.
And, that is why her voice is important.
Welcome back, Sarah. We’ve missed you.

indeed…welcome back cuda 🙂
Moral of the story, drink Dr. Pepper. It keeps you regular…
Monday morning will bring exploding leftie and status quo heads…Clean up on aisle Milquetoast…
What REALLY made me mad was, after terminating her and karl rove’s contract, they brought rove back. I despise that little troll. FNC is awash with left wing idiots that I can’t stand. I don’t watch any of the prime time shows at all. Cavuto, The Five, Special Report and Red Eye are the shows I watch every day. FNC is often on during the day, as background noise more than anything.
