Note to Palin: GOP
Needs More than a Mouth

Commentary Magazine, by Jonathan S. Tobin

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/28/2013 5:42:39 AM

As expected, Fox News cut its ties with Sarah Palin on Friday. The former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate had worn out her welcome at the network over the last year and her brand had lost a lot of its pizzazz after sitting out the 2012 presidential contest and new conservative voices had come to the fore. Though she remains a cult favorite among some on the right and a convenient punching bag for the left, in a party with a large cast of rising stars like Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal,

Comments:
Lots of compliments for her in this piece, but some friendly advice, too.

Compliments? Friendly advice? I must have read a different article. All I saw was at least one nasty snipe per paragraph.
Snips FTA: "worn out her welcome at the network"
"hard to see how anyone as polarizing as Palin is going to get moderates to listen to anything she has to say."
"lost a lot of her credibility when she resigned her governorship"
"spent the last four years acting like a reality TV show star and alienating many people who once wished her well."
"she’s going to have to something more than talk."
"Palin has taken on the aspect of a celebrity rather than a politician, let alone a political thinker."
"she’s going to have to demonstrate that she’s capable of doing something more than run her mouth."

If I got friendly advice worded like this, I might suspect the authors motives.

Previous articles have framed Sarah´s departure from Fox in a different light altogether, saying it was Sarah who chose to exit. Now this article is saying Fox dumped her. And on top of that, the article is justifying dropping her with snide comments.

The conventional wisdom among the primary posters on this site is that Palin is a liability.
Never mind the fact that the left agrees.

I was very disappointed when Sarah did not get out and campaign with Romney/Ryan. She could have really given them a boost at campaign events and she chose not to. I don´t know why, but she said she wanted to be free to HELP the Republican party take back Washington. This was her big chance and she instead sat it out in Alaska. Since she wasn´t a factor in the election, I guess I can understand why FOX didn´t want to pay her a million dollars a year. I liked her enough that I would have voted for her had she decided to get into the Race. Sadly, she´s now yesterday´s news.

Oh please, Fox is so eager to be one of the big boy news networks now. It won´t really matter if Palin isn´t there anymore. We know, and so do all the elitists among us, that she will still be able to draw huge crowds and if the GOP were filled with smart men instead of good ole boys, they´d have understood what a gem she is instead of trying to shove her off the cliff. Yessiree - they gave us Dole, McCain and Romney. And I see Rove was re-signed. I turn the channel when he comes on - anywhere.

If Palin had campaigned for Romney/Ryan they still would have lost then posters could blame Palin and say she is too polarizing and caused us to lose the election. Am I right? We have posters who are addicted to blaming Palin,like many blame Bush, for anything and everything that goes wrong. Own it. Posters who scapegoat Palin are whiners who aid and abet our enemies on the left. Any strong conservative will be bashed by Republicans who are cino´s. The left need not worry about shooting down our conservatives, our cino´s will do it for them.

How kind of Mr. Tobin to provide all of this "complimentary friendly advice" to Sarah Palin, and for OP to post it here in case Ldotters may have missed it.

The eagerness of goodhearted concern for Sarah Palin´s political future is obvious for all to see.
All Palin "fans" and "true believers" are sure to be uplifted and heartened by the implication of this kind thoughtfulness from Mr. Tobin and OP that they and others like them will be shoulder to shoulder with Palin and her "fans" in every effort to restore Palin´s "lost credibility".
If not shoulder to shoulder, it is certain we can count on them to be out in front of her and at her back with much more similar encouragement and lots of "complimentary, friendly advice".

It´s hard to find words to describe such kindness and generosity, but, when words fail to express the proper appreciation, perhaps knowing that we know that´s just the kind of people they are will suffice.

The "rising stars" just look like RINOs to me, and will not bring me back to the republican party. We need real change that gets i the faces of the enemies of ths country - the domestic kind, and these lilly-livered wimps aren´t interested in engaging the enemy.

Sorry GOP, you´re going down again if you don´t change, and it will be worse each election cycle unti you do. As Baretta said, you can take that to the bank.

It is my understanding that she wasn´t asked to campaign for them. And the fact that she could probably outshine anyone in the GOP by pulling in crowds that they could only dream of. What RINO wants to deal with that? This article is snarky garbage. It is so nice to see that Sarah is still living rent free in the heads of the haters on the left and the right.

Don´t write Sarah off yet. I don´t believe she was invited to the convention nor was she invited to campaign for Romney. She was the energizer for the McCain campaign, more came out to see her than him. She was demonized because the left was afraid of her appeal.

Just because many of us aren´t able to respond to every article doesn´t mean our opinions aren´t just as valid as anyone else. I have never considered Ms Palin a liability, and there are thousands of others like me.

SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio — The man accused of bullying his neighbors for 15 years, including children with developmental disabilities, carried out part of his punishment on Sunday by sitting at a busy intersection with a large sign that says he’s a bully. Edmond Aviv, 62, endured five hours of people yelling at him from passing cars while holding a sign that said: "I AM A BULLY!

How Being a Doctor Became
the Most Miserable Profession

Nine of 10 doctors discourage others from joining the profession, and 300 physicians commit suicide every year. When did it get this bad? By the end of this year, it’s estimated that 300 physicians will commit suicide. While depression amongst physicians is not new—a few years back, it was named the second most suicidal occupation—the level of sheer unhappiness amongst physicians is on the rise. Simply put, being a doctor has become a miserable and humiliating undertaking. Indeed, many doctors feel that America has declared war on physicians—and both physicians and patients are the losers. Not surprisingly, many doctors want out. Medical students

Infamous boxing promoter Don King isn’t holding a grudge against the Rev. Al Sharpton in the wake of a blockbuster report detailing how Sharpton snitched on King to the FBI. King on Sunday called the revelations about Sharpton’s 1980s work as a paid undercover informant “old news” and praised Sharpton as a “stand-up person” for secretly recording mobsters with a customized Hartmann briefcase provided by the feds. “Al Sharpton had enough guts to fight, if it is true, to fight for others spending their ways and means to take away opportunity,” King told The Post. “How many people would put

Because you can find anything on the Web, you can easily search and pull up a running clock that tells you just how long, to the second, Barack Obama has been president. It moves in real time. It only feels like it´s speeding up. Constrained by crises over which he has little power to impact events, hemmed in by a divided Congress more interested in scoring points with voters than in legislating, and watching as his potential successor assumes more and more of the political spotlight, Obama may be receding into history more quickly than either he or his aides ever anticipated. It was impossible to listen to the president's speech Thursday

Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s administration is tightening the reins on cash handling to eliminate an embarrassing lack of oversight that allegedly allowed a low-level clerk in the Chicago Department of Transportation to embezzle nearly $750,000 in permit fees over a six-year period. In a memo to department heads, City Comptroller Dan Widawsky argued that “recent events have highlighted the risks associated with cash management” and the importance of “robust controls to manage” those risks. “We are the custodians of our city’s resources and you and your finance staff are critical to ensuring that such resources are safeguarded,” Widawsky wrote. “Each department head is responsibl

WASHINGTON – Lawmakers with strong ties to the Tea Party movement have gained a toehold in the U.S. Senate but it appears they might have difficulty expanding their numbers this year. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) are among those associated with the conservative, grassroots drive that has proved influential within Republican Party politics in a relatively short period of time. But a review of upcoming Senate contests reveals that more establishmentarian Senate candidates maintain an edge – at least to this point – heading into the primary season.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911.
