    Because the literate and educated public of the USA are upset that her popularity allows her to represent them to the world through the media.

    Sarah Palin does not anger me. 3.039 million viewers do.

    Nice to see the thread turn into kieth olberman talking points. I won't bring up Obama's 58 states gaff or any other of dozens of things Biden screws up day in and day out.

    Yes I get it you are the only smart one because you don't like Palin and Republicans, yawn. The millions that watch utterly worthless crap like Survivor don't necessary anger me but I guess they do to an extent because shows I like seem to get canceled far too often. Can't complain much about Palin's show because it isn't on a channel that cancels stuff I watch.

    Now my line for this thread getting shut down for getting way off topic, which is the only place it was going to go, is 3 posts or 2 days which ever comes first.

    Hating someone for the wrong reasons though is wrong.

    Let's be honest, most of you who claim to hate Sarah Pail do so because her political views do not side with your own. If Sarah Palin's views did then I suspect your opinion would be different.

    Political views don't change my views on a persons stupidity. Stupid people come from every political party. I'm pretty much down the middle with my ideology with a slight lean to the left, and there are plenty of lefties I don't think are very smart/borderline mentally challenged. ;)

    I think that is a point well stated.

    Obama & Biden aren't the subject of the thread, Mrs. Palin & her show is the topic. A poster claimed Mrs. Palin, "sounds more intelligent than many want to admit." I simply pointed out her lack of intelligence. It's not about being Republican or Democrat...Like I said, stupid people come from every political party.

    I see! Mrs. Palin is not intelligent because she made some gaffs in some of her speechs and conversations? The problem here is Mrs. Palin is a public figure and some out there are looking for every little thing they can to pick her apart.
    In my life I have met some rather intelligent individuals and have heard some of the dumbest things come out of their mouth. I remember one individual who once was talking to an entire room full of people and how he and his wife had just purchased a condom (meant condominium). If this man had been a public figure, his comments would have been headline on MSNBC and I guess in your eyes he would be unintelligent.
    I'm sure if we took the time to dive into your life, we could probably find some pretty good gaffs which you have made. "Let he who is without sins cast the first stone"

    I have no desire to see Governor Palin further her political career. But that doesn't mean I think her TV show about Alaska should tank. Or that her daughter shouldn't gain from an appearance on "Dancing with the Stars."

    I try not to confuse celebrity with relative importance in the world. And I definitely do not think having a college degree endows one with wisdom, good judgment, and insight.

    I think there are many members of Congress on both sides of the aisle who are dumb as posts. Some seem to make Governor Palin look pretty smart when you examine what she has accomplished by making some good choices.

    If I have a problem it is not with her or other Fox News celebrities. My problem is with Rupert Murdoch. He appears to be willing to do anything and to use anyone to make money, apparently solely for the sake of making money. That is not a value upon which one can build a moral life IMHO.

    We've all slipped up on our words, for sure. I've sounded like an idiot a few times. All of her gaffs aren't just everyday goofs. Some have been typed out with the chance to think twice before posting. If you know the world is watching you and you still don't think before typing/talking, then you aren't very intelligent.

    Ironically, the very individuals who are supposed to be her biggest enemies are actually cheering for her show to do well enough that she can use it as a springboard to the presidential nomination. She's about the only possible candidate they can beat.

    Here's where phrelin's insightful Murdoch comments really come into play: Murdoch, while appearing to be the ultimate doctrinaire Right Wing pragmatist, is in fact not, he's the ultimate predatory businessman. He will gladly push Palin on Fox 24/7 even if it means he pushes the Reps right off the cliff along with her because it means R-A-T-I-N-G-S. That's his true bottom line. All the rest walks.

    Friendly moderator note...

    Perhaps a return to the show, and not general politics is in order? I understand some of her show (I have not watched) is bound to tie-in to her political views... but tread lightly so the thread can stay open for people who like to watch and discuss her show.

    Thanks!

    Yes sir. A very tight wire to walk when it can be argued that her show is nothing short of a paid for political advertisement.
    But To avoid crossing the line. I slowly back from the room with my hat in my hand.

    I'm just curious as to how much of her show have you actually watched? Can I assume from the fact you posted that 3.06 million people who have watched the show anger you that you were not one of them?

    While I despise Palin personally, I have great hopes that this show and her Fox appearances will be huge successes and make her a lock for certain future..."considerations"! Go Moosekiller!!!
