Coming soon to “The View”: Sarah Palin?

posted at 6:01 pm on July 7, 2014 by Allahpundit

Hard to tell if she’s kidding or not, but it’s interesting that she brought up the vacancies on the “View” panel, not her interviewer.

Any interest in doing a political talk show, either on TV, radio or the Internet?

Maybe. But the politics would have to be interspersed with a whole lot of fun and real life and inspiration showcasing American work ethic, because those topics are all pretty much the antithesis of today’s politics, which I find incorrigibly disastrous! It’d be so much fun to shake it up taking on issues that make audiences objectively consider all sides, and I’d do it with my own real-life groundedness, candor and commonsense that I’m known for. Media needs that today, versus the condescension that oozes from TV and radio. I hear everyone recently got canned from The View, maybe a show like that needs a punch of reality and a voice of reason from America’s heartland to knock some humble sense into their scripts. You know, someone willing to go rogue.

Hard to argue with this:

Whoopi’s the only mainstay left after Barbara Walters retired and Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy allegedly got fired. Bring in Palin and you solve a bunch of problems — a more ideologically diverse panel, more media attention for a show that’s gotten stale, and a ratings boost as more conservatives start to watch and more liberals start to hate-watch. It’d be a chance for Palin too to show her critics she’s not as scripted as they’re always accusing her of being. Question, though: What would the rest of the panel look like? Lefties will demand bloodsport with Palin there; either it’ll be three against one, with Whoopi joining two other liberals, or they’ll have to do some sort of two versus two “Crossfire” arrangement. Who ends up being the other liberal and other conservative? Don’t necessarily think of women: Per EW, they might be ready to add a male panelist or two. Which is good, because I know just the guy to liven up a show that’s in the doldrums. He’s unemployed, interested in being on TV, has some political experience, and would, I suspect, be thrilled at having a mostly female fan base. It’s time, my friends.

Incidentally, does Palin’s interest in “The View” mean she isn’t interested in Fox News’s new “View”-ish show at noon, “Outnumbered”? I’m imagining a Fox VP reading that Q&A above and wondering why she hasn’t approached them about being a panelist on their network. Maybe she wants a bigger platform and more established brand, or maybe Fox foolishly didn’t approach her about “Outnumbered.” Strange, though.

Ward Cleaver on July 7, 2014 at 6:07 PM

I’ve long thought if she was insistent of going the showbiz route, she should do a talk show, but I always wondered if she could carry one by herself. This would solve that problem. I do agree though that if the panel is to have 4 people, Palin can’t be the only conservative. At least have someone else who leans right-of-center.

Doughboy on July 7, 2014 at 6:07 PM

One of my nephews once told me that when he was growing up in the 90′s in Portland Oregon, that their local cable provider use to have a channel that was a camera focused on a fish tank, that was it. 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 52 weeks a year, the channel was a fish tank. My nephew also insisted, that it was one of Portland’s most popular channels. I don’t know if it’s still on the air, but I bet the programming on the fish tank channel is better than anything that has ever been shown on The View.

oscarwilde on July 7, 2014 at 6:21 PM

No, no. That show would be an anchor around her leg. She needs to be free and untethered……. Or in the White House. :)

That show is in the Cousin Oliver stage of its run. Of course they’ll ask and and of course she’ll do it.
She wouldn’t throw that out there unless they’ve already asked or she is willing to do it. If successful (it would be) it would mean a big payday for her and it’s a way of sticking it to FOX for not putting her on The Five or Outnumbered. Since she’s obviously not interested in running for anything, it’s brilliant. The road to Conservative relevance is the CULTURE. Breitbart was soooooo right. This would been a nice step in the right direction.

There’s no way Sara Palins comments will be taken seriously because she speaks a truth. Look what she has been accused of? The media hates this women and will show inexcusable writings on her palm as proof of her fiction. This of course is the lefts agenda. Anyone with a brain will listen but the left that is a substitute for a brain will comment differently. We out here are in a rage but that is covered by the media by a quiet huh? The deaf Congress isa another yet they ask what? We are very close to a revolution ad it’s covered up by the media.

She’s too big for those shows. Frankly, she’s too big for the View. Whoopi won’t last long.

If Palin and another conservative were hosts, Whoopi would get her diapers in a wad and pout off like she did when Bill O’Reilly was a guest.

BigWyo on July 7, 2014 at 6:38 PM

Palin is laying the groundwork for an Independent presidential run in 2016. She didn’t run in 2012 because her kids were still relatively young and she would have had to go against the GOP machine.

Palin receives daily security and intelligence briefings. As an independent, she will be a voice of clarity for the middle-class and blue-collar workers who are getting screwed by elitists in both parties. She will unite the young libertarian voters, the evangelicals, and the far-leftists who are concerned about spying, privacy, and ongoing wars from the federal government.

Palin will launch an exploratory committee in March of 2015, followed by an “Announcement Speech” on August 29th, 2015, her 37th Wedding Anniversary and seven years to the day she was chosen as McCain’s VP. This speech will be unprecedented and will electrify and unify America like never before.

Having Sarah Palin on The View would certainly raise their ratings, although she might become a bull’s eye for the lefty hate-mongerers. But Sarah Palin is rather washed-up politically after resigning the Governorship of Alaska, and The View could give her a forum for pushing conservative values among women who otherwise never see a conservative on TV.

If ABC wants “The New View” to be a two-on-two “Crossfire” between two liberal women and two conservative women, let Palin team up with Laura Ingraham, then the liberals will be running for cover!
