    Has there ever been a worse interviewer of any sort on TV? It is all about HIM. Giving his opinion, rattling on and on about what HE thinks, finishing interviewee's sentences; interrupting not to challenge a view but to provide his own answer. Really, he could not be worse. Insufferable, self-important windbag who's opinion really could be less relevant.

    "Sarah is grossly ufuqalinied to handle the job of being President. She and Bachman need to disappear..... neither of them has any chance of winning.""The Sarah Palin show in Iowa is largely made up of the Media.Take away the Media and the "onlookers," and, well, her fan base is pitifully small.The proof is in the poor showing at her pathetic film, the near empty Mall of America book signing, and the dismal sales of her second book.When is the Media going to stop this pretense that Sarah Palin matters?""How can you keep asking the question whether she is running or not... This woman left office so she can sell her brand... She does not have an exploratory staff.., or hired anyone to establish an organizational network... She panders.., for bucks!.. This is her career... She will get in front of the camera for this run..., and will hope to do the same in 2016.., and the mouth breathers will continue to believe her... Don't care for Bachmann.., but she has the courage to put skin in the game.., and will go toe to toe with the media... Palin only does FOX Skews, Twitter and Facebook... Not what you'd call leadership material...""How can you keep asking the question whether she is running or not... This woman left office so she can sell her brand...

The thread is about her speaking words in support of Romney, and you IDIOTS turn it into an anti-Palin rant.We don't give a RATS ASS what you think....Know why? Because you haven't got the aggies to put a name to your trash talk.
