Sarah Palin on Herman Cain: “He’s, I guess you could say, with all due respect, the flavor of the week.”

A Palin presidency: Too “shackle-y?”

That’s what Sarah Palin suggested on Fox News’ “On The Record with Greta VanSusteren” tonight, saying that she’s concerned jumping into the 2012 presidential race will muffle her message.

“Is a title worth it?” she asked, rhetorically. “Does a title shackle a person? Are they someone like me who’s maverick? I do go rogue and I call it like I see it and I don’t mind stirring it up in order to get people to think and debate aggressively.”

“Is a title and a campaign too shackle-y?,” she continued. “Does that prohibit me from being out there, out of a box, not allowing handlers to shape me and to force my message to be what donors or what contributors or what pundits want it to be? Does a title take away my freedom to call it like I see it and to affect positive change that we need in this country? That’s the biggest contemplation piece in my process.”

Palin expressed a concern about “being caricatured” if she runs, and asked again “whether a title is needed to make a difference or someone can be rogue, can be maverick, can be passionate about issues and can get people to think very wisely about issues.”

Palin also said she didn’t know anything about a recent e-mail her political action committee sent to supporters saying she’s “on the verge” of making a 2012 decision: “Well I don’t know what went out to voters that said I’m on the verge.”

But she admitted it’s getting late.

“For logistical reasons though, certainly, decisions have to be made,” she said. “You have to get your ducks lined up in order to get your name on ballots.”

And she still thinks she could beat President Obama.

“I do,” she replied, when Van Susteren asked if she could win over the current president. “I wouldn’t have gone this far in my thinking about whether to run or not had I not had the confidence to believe that Americans are ready for someone out of the box.”

“I think a lot of the push for Chris Christie and others comes from not just from those within the party but from those inside baseball within the media,” she said.

But the GOP’s current underdog, she suggested, is “Herb Cain,” better known as Herman Cain: “He’s, I guess you could say, with all due respect, the flavor of the week.”

    I knew the bitch wouldn’t run. she is making up excuses so her foolish moneybags will keep pouring in the money. What delusional fools, just like their leader.

    The insufferable bitch couldn’t beat herm cain, she doesn’t have debating skills and her overall behavior is appalling.

    I don’t know how much more ‘out of the box’ a candidate has to be than the man we met when Barack Obama came on a wider American scene. A sane, thoughtful intelligent man who saw the need to return America’s focus back to the middle class long before she or any in her party got over their all approving love affair with Bush/Reagan. A man who had served in the Illinois state Senate and then was elected to the U.S. Senate is described by Palin as lacking in experience as compared to a 2 year attempt at governing AK. (I don’t count the half year that she was running for VP as it kept her out of her state and obviously prevented her from actually doing the bidding of the AK populace).

    Obama ran the most successful grass-roots campaign I can recall in my many voting years. But it’s typical of her unrealistic obsession with our President. She thinks her education is equal if not more relevant than his. She thinks her little spins as mayor of a small, rural town exceed his experience working with voters in a large metropolitan city and holding three Senate terms. She thinks screeching talking points drowns out his firm knowledge of the Constitution and his ability to string together very coherent speeches. There are many psychological profiles that fit her maniacal musings and we may have to coin an entire new word that more fully describes her blended cocktail of delusion.

    Did y’all notice that Palin had the nerve to call Cain:

    HERB Cain.. & she said it more than once tonite.

    Also, I notice that foxnews did NOT put ID Caption under name identifying her as “foxnews contributor”. Instead they put “Former Governor”. So Im wondering if she got fired.

      More mispronouncing/misspeaking by the Queen. She’s sticking to her “pundents. rill, fill, dill etc.” Last night she said one I’d never heard before – “Condradictory.”

      I braved the sea4pee today & they’re starting to get the picture from the Greta interview that she may not be running but got a lot of disagreement from others. Many proclaimed that they would continue to follow her no matter what her decision is. Just can’t admit they’ve been wrong all along.

        They can’t admit she may not run because all along they’ve been saying that Sarah is not the type of woman who would let people work on her behalf for months behind the scenes, spending their own money, with Organizing4Palin, and Iowa4Palin, Texas4Palin, and so on….they don’t want to have to deal with the fact that Palin didn’t care enough to let them know early on. Palin’s real thoughts on the idea would probably be along the lines of “I never told them to organize and spend money, they can’t bill ME OR MY PAC FOR THEIR EXPENSES–THEY BETTER KNOW THAT!!! We all know she doesn’t like to part with any of her money despite her never having contacted any of the people involved in these organizations and asked them not to spend so much money BEFORE she made a decision. While some of it falls on the organizers, Sarah did nothing to discourage them. They’ve lost probably tens of thousands of dollars with their belief that Sarah would run.

      good points..but just the fact she was there means she hasn’t been fired,,, but as i was the first to predict 3 months ago that fox would dump her rather then renew her contract..i must say my prediction will come to be.

    It would please me to no end if she has finally lost her stint on Faux. Many have brought up the fact that her name is not on the list of on air personalities on the Faux website.

    ‘Shackle-y?’ She should be in shackles and an orange jumpsuit. Oh and also, too holding the office of President is just a TITLE? Nothing’s changed with her – why take the pay cut and scrutiny when she can continue to spew her mavericky BS and get her delusional supporters to keep giving her money?

      And during the interview the scroll on the screen only said”Former Gov Sarah Palin” not the usual “Fox News Political Analyst” so did Roger change Sarah’s status at Fox & also too was that the reason for Mrs Quittypants criticizing the reporting on Fox earlier in the day. Or is she just so gosh darn mavericky that bitin the hand that feeds her is part of her roguiness?

    Isn’t she just the cutest lil’ thing? Doesn’t know Mr. Cain, yet immediately
    refers to him by an abreviated version of his first name. That’s ‘Mr. Cain,’
    to you, ex-mayor. She won’t run, she wouldn’t dare. As they say in Britain,
    she hasn’t got the bottle.

    Calling him “Herb” Cain is her way of diminishing him. IE he’s not important enough that I need to know his name just like she made believe she had no idea who Maureen Dowd was.
    What a pathetic excuse for a human being!

    That flavor look good to you Sarah? Licking your chops? He’s pizza you can gorge on and vomit (and hate yourself for) all over yourself after?

    Getting your lame ducks in order lady?

    Palin also said she didn’t know anything about a recent e-mail her political action committee sent to supporters saying she’s “on the verge” of making a 2012 decision: “Well I don’t know what went out to voters that said I’m on the verge.”

    She doesn’t know what her tiny, grappling circle of insiders are doing in her name? She claims 80% of her time executing her Gubernatorial duties was dogged by frivolous ethics complaints so she had to quit, but she didn’t know what her co-governor Tawd was doing on a private, personal family vendetta?

    Either she knows shit or she doesn’t. She quit to ‘progress’ Alaska without a title, how has her legacy legislations fared with her departure, unencumbered by open and transparency pledges and ethical guidelines? ACES? AGIA? How’s that $40 billion dollar private infrastructure thingy working out for you Juicy?

    Don’t you dare sit on your monstrous fence and tell us you could beat Obama, just try it loser.

    Don’t tell her, but she is already being caricatured, and has been a joke for a long time. What does she think Tina was doing three years ago? Sarah, dear, I know a few folks are still sending you money, but you will never hold another elected office in this country…maybe you can try your friends in N Korea when you get over there next month? No one wants to play ball with you, honeybunch, so please stop pretending we care what you think (or what you’re told to read off the prompter …by the way, can you read? I’m sure the prompter said Herman Cain, not Herb. And when you retreat, please take your uneducated daughters with you…LA doesn’t have any use for them either.

    “Flavor of the week”- What the hell Sarah? Are you planning on doing a little taste testing? Sarah, your shelf-life has expired. Take your family and husband and crawl back under some rock in AK and hibernate. America will be a better place when you are only a footnote in history.

    She never intended to run, and her justification for stringing along her supporters sounds like sour grapes.

    I wonder if any of the palinbots feel punked?

    In light of the stories surfacing about her sexual frolics with other men, the “flavor of the week” comment was really stupid. She thinks she is just so darned clever, when, in fact, every time she opens her mouth she proves she is an idiot!

    Love all your comments! Agree about her subconscious use of ‘Flavor of the week”.. What must she have been thinking to have used a phrase like that? Well, The ‘out of the box’ candidate Sarah Palin. Interesting that this article says Palin said Herm… But, the rest of the media heard Herb…
    Palin on ‘Herb’

    Herb Cain, O’Biden…they’re all the same aren’t they?….lol

    Yes …being the leader of the free world is just like being “shackled”.

    What is she saying?

    Well we all know, what she means when it involves Obama and using the phrase “shackled”.


    In all ways Palin is nothing more than pathetic.

    Yesterday Jon Stewart called her crazy and Nicole Wallace called her cuckoo for coco puffs.

    It doesn’t get any clearer than THIS;

    On last night’s Rachel Maddow Show, Rachel examined the remarks of former McCain/Palin campaign officials Steve Schmidt and Nicole Wallace regarding the possible candidacy or non-candidacy of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

    Former campaign director Schmidt called the choice of Palin as McCain’s running-mate~~~ “a failure of the vetting process”. ~~

    He believes that she was ~~fundamentally unprepared for the task set before her and is even less prepared to run for president.~~

    Wallace, who has just published a novel (It’s Classified) about a woman elected to the presidency who turns out to be seriously mentally ill, went a step further when disparaging the possibility of a Palin candidacy.

    ~~~“Look, I was inspired by her to write a book about someone who’s cuckoo-for-Cocoa-Puffs,” she says, “so don’t ask me.”~~

    Thoughts on McGinniss’ Sarah Palin Book, ‘The Rogue’
    By Tina Dupuy

    I read Joe McGinniss’ The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin.

    I read the whole thing.

    Cover to cover.

    It was not sensational. It was not tabloid-esque.

    It was not trash.

    It was what the cover claimed – the search for the real Sarah Palin.

    She has this thing with telling the truth – she doesn’t do it.

    Nearly ever.

    She just, as she says about others “makes stuff up.”

    This personality trait has been documented over and over again in the press.

    Perhaps this is why Palin reflexively attacks – not the message or the messenger – but the entire medium and whole idea of journalism and mass communication…often on national television.

    So it’s a legitimate question: who is this woman?

    Ms. Palin is a paid contributor for Fox, which is owned by News Corp., as is The Wall Street Journal.

    In the meantime, Ms. Palin has kept her name out there by commenting on the latest developments in the Republican primary. Earlier this week, she said that former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain was the campaign’s latest “flavor of the week” after he won the Florida straw poll last weekend. On Thursday, Ms. Palin said she did not mean to suggest that Mr. Cain is a passing fad. The full excerpt from the transcript:

    What the media tends to do is propel this flavor of the week. I’m not saying that Herman Cain is the flavor of the week. I’m one of his biggest fans and I would never dismiss him or speak negatively about him. I’m saying in this fast movie, 24/7 news cycle that is our world today that the media does have to gin up some controversy and intrigue so viewers tune in and there’s a lot of competition in the media world in this quasi-reality show it seems that’s being created in the GOP primary. It’s just the nature of the beast right now and I think anybody would hard-pressed to argue against what I observed.

    rogue (rg)
    1. An unprincipled, deceitful, and unreliable person; a scoundrel or rascal.
    2. One who is playfully mischievous; a scamp.
    3. A wandering beggar; a vagrant.
    4. A vicious and solitary animal, especially an elephant that has separated itself from its herd.
    5. An organism, especially a plant, that shows an undesirable variation from a standard.
    1. Vicious and solitary. Used of an animal, especially an elephant.
    2. Large, destructive, and anomalous or unpredictable: a rogue wave; a rogue tornado.
    3. Operating outside normal or desirable controls: “How could a single rogue trader bring down an otherwise profitable and well-regarded institution?” (Saul Hansell).
    v. rogued, rogu·ing, rogues
    1. To defraud.
    2. To remove (diseased or abnormal specimens) from a group of plants of the same variety.

    Sarah, the ROGUE, couldn’t describe describe herself more perfectly… ( like she really knows the defintion of the word rogue… ROFL… obviously she does not and as usual is clueless)

    too bad her base doesn’t understand or comprehend the ENGLISH LANGUAGE…

    She states without question what she is rogue, and yet… the tea baggers and SP panty sniffers and kool aid drinkers can’t get a grip on the very clear truth that she has declared in her own words over and over and over again.

    She PROUDLY claims to be a rogue, and by all definition, She IS a rogue, she fulfills the very definition of rogue to a tee. And yet, somewhere in their sorry little minds and misguided hearts SP and the Pbots twist the term rogue into meaning something positive. Scratching head and and wondering WTF.???

    All I can say is, Sarah, I take you at your word, you ARE a rogue, you are the living, breathing epitome of the defintion of rogue.

    Appalled, I keep scratching my brain… She claims that as a sort of victory badge and her blind mice base just sing the chorus.

    We supposedly live in the land of the free, and the home of the brave.

    Brave I claim, when faced with head in the sand wingnuts, free I claim when we are governed by Democrats, not rethuglicans.

    I feel like general sanity is swirling down the toilet with a really strong dose of republican “tidy bowl”
