Sarah Palin Wants $1 Million Per Episode for Reality Show

http://www.twirlit.com/2010/03/23/sarah-palin-wants-1-million-per-episod...
Once governor of Alaska and a vice presidential candidate, Sarah Palin is now setting her sights on reality TV. Talk about a downward career trajectory. But don’t tell her, she seems to think she’s worth at least $1 million per episode of the tentatively-titled, “Sarah Palin’s America.” Palin has really grabbed her reputation as the “Laughingstock Of The Nation” by the horns here and is riding it into the ground, much to the public’s amusement.

Really? One million dollars per episode?! The cast of “Friends” didn’t even get that until their show was a mega-hit in its ninth season with an audience of 22 million viewers. And Sarah Palin wants that right out of the gate? She must have a secret weapon up her sleeve. She can’t be seriously be so delusional as to think a network is going to pay her $1 million dollars per episode to do things like tour a fishing boat or explore a gold mine. Even if she’s partnered with reality show guru Mark Burnett.

After being turned down by all the major networks, two cable channels, A&E and Discovery, have expressed interest in the project. Hopefully that passes. If you want to learn something about Alaska, just go there. Or buy the “Northern Exposure” box set. Either would prove more educational, and probably more entertaining, than watching Sarah Palin rake in millions of dollars by trekking all over “her” state and capitalizing on her “celebrity.”

Palin derangement syndrome.

Liberals to women:

You can do what ever you want in life......so long as you arent a conservative or pro life...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

Pup, you sound a tad jealous...no one would pay you a million dollars to see or hear you? Try going to Sarah's Facebook page and see how many friends she has. Remember when people waited outside in the cold in Grand Rapids for her book signing? Your jealousy reminds me of Andrea Mitchells performance in Grand Rapids. Moral: just because you or Andrea Mitchell don't like Sarah, doesn't mean that millions DO like her!! Try and learn to live with that fact.

I'm sure Wolfie would like to see her in his way of what a woman should be: barefoot and pregnant.

This s why right-wingers love having their own prominent female political figure. They can respond to any criticism of her by crying "sexism," whether or not the criticisms are actually sexist.

For the benefit of those who don't understand the concept, "sexism" means prejudice or discrimination on the basis of sex. None of Wolfman's comments even remotely imply that Sarah Palin should not do reality TV because she is female. Rather, Palin's decision to do reality TV is worthy of criticism because right-wingers insist she be taken seriously as a potential GOP presidential or vice-presidential candidate in 2012. Palin could be doing all sorts of things to build her credibility, but doing a reality TV show is not one of them.

Right wingers want to believe Palin is their messiah. Palin has a problem. Seems its a love of money. She quits her Alaska governor gig midterm to concentrate on the lucrative book deal. Now see demands huge payola for what? Reality TV! Come on just another greedy political hack.
What Alaskans know to be true about Palin from Wasilla Alaska

Sarah Palin's shadow hangs over Alaska ethics debate
Quote from article
http://www.cleveland.com/nation/index.ssf/2010/01/sarah_palins_shadow_ha...

"Her emergence on the national political scene prompted a flood of public records requests, the volume of which state officials hadn't seen before and are still working to fulfill, and set off a flurry of ethics complaints.

More than 20 complaints were filed against her with all but two, related to travel and a legal defense fund, dismissed, said her personal attorney, Thomas Van Flein.

While the defense fund issue is still pending, the travel complaint, related to Palin charging the state when her kids traveled with her, was settled, with Palin agreeing to reimburse the state for some questionable costs. The investigator's finding, that there is little in state rules to determine ethical travel standards for the first family, gave rise to Sullivan's proposal that a family member can tag along at state cost if his or her presence is required for state business or otherwise "benefits the state."

Palin cited the probes' financial and psychological toll as key in her decision to resign. Her legal bills have run into the hundreds of thousands. Disclosed costs incurred by the state have neared $370,000."

and if she gets the Repub. nomination in '12 the country will have no problem voting her off the island.

Well...so long at it puts all your panties in a bunch...(which it clearly does)...I'm all for it...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

get bunched up better that Palin's, lol.

Maybe we'll get to see that on her realty show.

Some of the local electronic media moguls are jealous of her, and her stunning success as well. Anyone see the cute leather coat she wore while recently stumping for McCain? Now who in their right mind would want to turn on the telly, and see Pelosi or Clinton relentlessly shriveling and aging away, when we can watch Sarah Palin fill the screen with her dynamic, youthful beauty, wit and exuberance? I'm wondering if she can get McCain elected now. If THAT happens, watch the socialists' blood pressure hit the stratosphere!

well said G Man!!
Lets see.... watching Sarah's bright and youthful enthusiasm with a pleasant feeling vs. trying to get through pelosi....not only her face ...talk about a

perpetual botox deer in the headlights expression..

think she needs some ObamaCare thyroid check for her exopthalmic eyes; but her words--- she makes no sense at all sometimes.
She's 70 years old this week....time to retire her to city council or something.

Sarah has beautiful skin...probably from Alaskan days without burning sunshine and a happy and contented life.

BTW--to all you Sarah haters ONE MILLION $$$ is Sarah's 'going rate' and she gets it! Guess she's pretty popular... can't think of anyone comparable that gets a cool million for an appearance...except for big celebrities...LOL
Bet Pelosi doesn't get that.

what's Sarah--with 'the beautiful skin and the bright and youthful enthusiasm with a pleasant feeling' --wearing in the poster above your bed you wank off to at night?

Yes, who cares whether or not Palin has any foreign policy chops? She looked simply ADORABLE in that leather coat!

We're getting a nice look inside the right-wing mind here, aren't we?

First a few baseless accusations of liberal sexism, and now G-man and TomBrown show us what REAL sexist commentary sounds like. Indeed, why would we want to "see Pelosi or Clinton relentlessly shriveling and aging away, when we can watch Sarah Palin fill the screen with her dynamic, youthful beauty, wit and exuberance?" After all, when we're talking about female politicians, experience or intellect are wholly irrelevant. The real question is, which one offers the most masturbation-worthy appearance?

It was only last week the Tea Bagger RealLooser was calling Marcy an "F'ing C*nt" on Swampbubbles. I don't seem to remember G and Brown coming to her defense.

Looks like the original posts were removed, but the responses weren't.

Of course.

As with so many things, it's an entirely different set of rules where the target is a liberal.

LOLOLOLOLOLOL!! Tom Brown is female, a very hetero female...Nook-your typical Lib attack "sexist" is totally irrelevant..HAHA!! Thanks for starting my day with a big laugh Nook.

And the second Standard Lib Attack of "Racist" won't work here either!! HAHA! Better fall back and regroup..LOL!

As for Poor Pup boy..he's still madly cutting and pasting something totally obscure from something on a 'page 15 Google search.' Keeps the pup out of trouble tho. Fetch!! Reminds me of when you give children those scissors with round tips and a magazine and tell them to cut out pictures of all words starting with 'd'. Like dogfood. Cuz you know they'll be "busy" for awhile. LOL.

"Tom Brown is female, a very hetero female...Nook-your typical Lib attack "sexist" is totally irrelevant..HAHA!! Thanks for starting my day with a big laugh Nook."

No, what is irrelevant is your gender and sexual orientation. G-man made a hateful, sexist comment. Specifically, he criticizes female politicians for committing the crime of appearing in public while not being youthful and pleasing to his eye. I'm sorry for your confusion, but heterosexual women are perfectly capable of making sexist comments about other women and reinforcing sexist attitudes, as you have gleefully done here.

"And the second Standard Lib Attack of "Racist" won't work here either!!"

Speaking of irrelevant comments...no one appears to be accusing anyone of "racism" on this thread. HAHA LOLOLOLOLOL (Don rolls eyes).

nookdon said: Speaking of irrelevant comments...no one appears to be accusing anyone of "racism" on this thread. HAHA LOLOLOLOLOL (Don rolls eyes).

Reread the post fella...I said if isn't sexism it's racism..the two standard looney liberal attacks. No one accused anyone of racism. You have a good imagination tho

Of course the whole point of this thread is that Sarah is rich, cute and smart ("That old green monster")..And she DOES look darn cute in that leather jacket!!!!.

Why are conservative women better looking?...Oh well, that's another post......

tombrown's comment,
"Of course the whole point of this thread is that Sarah is rich, cute and smart ("That old green monster")..And she DOES look darn cute in that leather jacket!!!!."

Yes Tom these qualities are all that Republicans need to qualify as a candidate. How silly!

The whole point of this thread is Palin is motivated by money not some need to lead a third party to the White House. The woman quit her governorship in midterm for the pursuit of a huge paycheck. She's an opportunist no different than any other elected to office. The fact that she is easy on the eyes shows how the right is easily misled by just about anyone.

"Reread the post fella..."

I read your post, understood it perfectly well, and responded accordingly. I think it's clear who won more debate points.

"And she DOES look darn cute in that leather jacket!!!!"

Yes, very much so. I don't think any reasonable person would dispute that Sarah Palin is a beautiful woman.

"Why are conservative women better looking?...Oh well, that's another post......"

Looking forward to that discussion.

:)

Well the Palin adorable leather coat is a modified/improved LL Bean model 1849. The youthful skin is from the annual Alaskan baby seal blubber hunt which will be coming out this spring under the new Palin beauty products promotion.

McCain: The Most Reprehensible of the Keating Five
The story of "the Keating Five" has become a scandal rivaling Teapot Dome and Watergate
Comments (32) By Tom Fitzpatrick Wednesday, Nov 29 1989
You're John McCain, a fallen hero who wanted to become president so desperately that you sold yourself to Charlie Keating, the wealthy con man who bears such an incredible resemblance to The Joker.

Obviously, Keating thought you could make it to the White House, too.
He poured $112,000 into your political campaigns. He became your friend. He threw fund raisers in your honor. He even made a sweet shopping-center investment deal for your wife, Cindy. Your father-in-law, Jim Hensley, was cut in on the deal, too.
82Share

Nothing was too good for you. Why not? Keating saw you as a prime investment that would pay off in the future.

So he flew you and your family around the country in his private jets. Time after time, he put you up for serene, private vacations at his vast, palatial spa in the Bahamas. All of this was so grand. You were protected from what Thomas Hardy refers to as "the madding crowd." It was almost as though you were already staying at a presidential retreat.

Like the old song, that now seems "Long ago and far away."

Since Keating's collapse, you find yourself doing obscene things to save yourself from the Senate Ethics Committee's investigation. As a matter of course, you engage in backbiting behavior that will turn you into an outcast in the Senate if you do survive.

They say that if you put five lobsters into a pot and give them a chance to escape, none will be able to do so before you light the fire. Each time a lobster tries to climb over the top, his fellow lobsters will pull him back down. It is the way of lobsters and threatened United States senators.

And, of course, that's the way it is with the Keating Five. You are all battling to save your own hides. So you, McCain, leak to reporters about who did Keating's bidding in pressuring federal regulators to change the rules for Lincoln Savings and Loan.

When the reporters fail to print your tips quickly enough--as in the case of your tip on Michigan Senator Donald Riegle--you call them back and remind them how important it is to get that information in the newspapers.

The story of "the Keating Five" has become a scandal rivaling Teapot Dome and Watergate. The outcome will be decided, not in a courtroom, but probably on national television.

Those who survive will be the sociopaths who can tell a lie with the most sincere, straight face. You are especially adept at this.

Last Friday night, on The John McLaughlin Show, which features well-known Washington journalists, the subject of the Keating Five was discussed. Panelist Jack Germond suggested that three of the Keating Five were probably already through in politics.

So you spend your days desperately trying to make sure you will be one of the survivors. You keep volunteering to go on radio and television stations to protest your innocence. Last week you made ABC's Nightline.

Not long before that you somehow managed to get James Kilpatrick, the national columnist, to write a favorable paragraph about you. Last Sunday morning, you made it to national television again; this time on ABC's This Week With David Brinkley. You smiled at the panel with your usual studied insouciance. Sitting next to you was Senator John Glenn of Ohio.

Brinkley, Sam Donaldson, and George Will were the interrogators.
It was a sobering scene. There you sat with Glenn, both sweating before the cameras, waiting to answer questions: two badly tarnished American icons.

No one forgets that Glenn was the first American astronaut to orbit the Earth. You won't let anyone forget that you were a prisoner of war. But you have played that tune too long. By now your constant reminders about your war record make you seem like a modern version of Arthur Miller's tragic failure Willy Loman.

Clearly, both you and Glenn sold your fame for Charles Keating's money.

It was a Faustian bargain. It was also a bad joke on the rest of us and a disaster for many old people who lost their life's savings to Keating.

The money was never really Keating's to give. But he never would have got his hands on it if you and the rest of the Keating Five didn't halt the government takeover for two long years while Keating's people continued their looting.

And now, the tab for the Savings and Loan heist must be paid from taxpayer pockets.

On Sunday, Senators Dennis DeConcini, Alan Cranston, and Riegle refused offers to appear on the Brinkley show. What must we make of that?

You, the closest of them to Keating and the deepest in his debt, have chosen the path of the hard sell. You may even make it out of the pot, but to many, your protestations of innocence taste like gall.

You are determined to bluff your way. You will stick to your story that you were acting to help a constituent and intended to do nothing improper. The very fact you attended the meeting makes you guilty, just as every man who entered the Brinks vault went to prison.

Sarah is only getting a million per episode? She's worth far more than that IMO. And she did it all on her own, didn't have to "marry up", either. Or rely on government programs, relief, or whatever. No wonder socialist women hate her. As the front runner of the Conservative movement in the country, and probably the next President, she should be proud as hell of herself and her achievements.

I could do a cable show called "My Toledo" and tell everyone how this city is falling apart. I don't think I could get a million bucks for it. More like a dinner at Packos.

Where are the videos, of people saying this stuff, as opposed to the videos stating: "ask anybody about the name calling", or "of course this really happened, or it wouldn't have been reported on television"? I am surprised an incident hasn't been staged yet, for that matter.
