Former Fox News personality Sarah Palin (not to mention Governor of Alaska and nominee for Vice President of the United States) talked over the weekend at the Conservative Political Action Conference, with her remarks being carried live on her past employer's network, as well as its rivals CNN and MSNBC. Interestingly enough, Fox News aired her comments without commentary, while the other two networks featured talking heads discussing what she was saying, as well as the future of the Republican Party.
Palin wasted no time taking shots at President Barack Obama and other politicians within the Beltway.
“We don’t have leadership coming out of Washington, we have reality television," Palin said. "Except it's really bad reality TV, and the American people tuned out a long time ago." If anyone knows anything about really bad reality TV, it is Palin, the former star of TLC's Sarah Palin's Alaska.
Palin even blasted Republicans, saying that, "Even our guys in the GOP too often have a habit of reading their stage directions, especially these days, they're being too scripted, too calculated."
On Obama, who defeated her and John McCain in 2008, Palin said that, "He’s considered a good politician, which is like saying Bernie Madoff was a good salesman. The difference being the president is using our money."
Fox News tossed Palin out the door earlier this year. She is now writing a book about Christmas that will look at the commercialization about the holiday.
