Did FoxNews Unplug Palin?

TAMPA, FLa. — Sarah Palin has seemed content to sit out the big Republican show here this week. She campaigned earlier in the week in Arizona for GOP ;House candidates and said she was happy to leave the limelight to others, four years after her star turn at the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn.
But Palin clearly figured she would have at least one brief moment connected to the 2012 convention and that it would come Wednesday, when U.S. Sen. John McCain, her running mate, got his chance to speak to the party gathering.
It didn’t happen.
Palin said via Facebook: “I’m sorry Fox cancelled all my scheduled interviews tonight because I sure wanted to take the opportunity on the air to highlight Senator John McCain’s positive contributions to America, to honor him, and to reflect on what a biased media unfairly put him through four years ago tonight.”
It was unclear exactly how much air time Palin expected to grab, but she’s a fairly regular contributor, particularly on “Hannity” and Greta van Susteren’s “On the Record.”
Fox News, on the other hand, was never seen as entirely embracing McCain, the onetime Vietnam War veteran who alienated hard-line conservatives by compromising with Democrats on issues such as campaign finance reform and immigration.
Fox programmers may have simply decided Wednesday would not be McCain’s night. The now Romney-dominated party gave the Arizona senator his speaking slot, yes, but a couple of hours before prime time.
So why would Fox want to give Palin, his onetime running mate, any time to sing the praises of the man who brought her to the national stage? Far better to be building the brand of the party’s newly minted star, vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan, than to dwell on the old guard represented by McCain, the thinking doubtless went.
“I look forward to hearing his words to his fellow Americans tonight more than any of the other convention speeches,” Palin said in her Facebook posting. That would make her more interested in McCain than, notably, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan and many others, like Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who have replaced her as the GOP’s hottest brand names.

    They couldn’t find a designated driver for her mouth. She has nothing new to say, no new ideas, no solutions. All she spews is hate and discontent.

      Yes, including plenty of barely hidden snark directed at Romney & the establishment who has thrown her to the wolves. LOL! Loving it!

    It’s pretty bad when she can’t even sell her hate on Fox any more. But great for the country. Guess I’ll beleve they’re done with her when they take their cameras out of her ‘home studio.’

    Problem is [or was, we can only hope] she can’t be trusted, likes to “go rogue” and get all “mavericky”. All that third party crap was probably the last straw.

    So what did The Quitter say on FOX?
    Hummm, hold on let think about what she said thru out the last few years…

    Hummm the only thing I can think of is a few things that a 10th grader can fact check on the computer.

    Perhaps Alaska’s Worst Govenor Ever can find her inner manners and realize that honoring McCain would be best received on another night.

    It would be the polite thing to do. However we are talking about the media whore… and the though of her honoring McCain, is something she could of done, at least, sometime these PAST few years. Not the night of the GOP convention.

    Well, having worked for a major News station since 1986, I would suggest –
    1. Palin appeared on Hannity wearing a shirt for Adams -This is probably an offense that could result in dismissal .
    2. She then posted on Facebook, trashing her employer – if #1 wasn’t reason enough to terminate her contract, #2 more than likely is.

    Palin probably never read the Fox employee handbook.

    I saw that tshirt and was surprised she was even shown–like they couldn’t have made up an excuse as to why the video feed wasn’t working, but then you’re just left with that nails on the chalkboard voice…maybe they wanted to dump her and they set her up.

    You kidding I bet they sent her home to rest her voice. She’ll have lots of hate leftover for the dems convention. Just watch.
