Palin to Couric: ‘Game On’

In Global News, news, Sarah Palin on April 1, 2012 at 2:46 am

When news broke that Katie Couric will be filling in for Robin Roberts next week on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” the country yawned. Or, at least we did, until we learned that NBC plans to pit “The Rogue Warrior” against “The Perky One”: Sarah Palin will be guest-hosting “Today” this Tuesday.

NBC’s decision to seat the former Alaska Governor-turned-multimedia star in their anchor chair will likely prove to be a fruitful one. Since coming onto the national scene in 2008, Palin has become one of the most charismatic figures in conservative America and will likely bring “Today” an entirely different demographic of viewers.

“I see this as a good opportunity to bring an independent, common-sense conservative perspective to NBC. We’re ‘going rogue’ and infiltrating some turf for a day,” Palin told Breitbart News.

Palin and Couric will be squaring off, in a sense, for the first time since their controversial interview on the 2008 campaign trail.

When Breitbart News asked for a comment about the fact that she will be competing with Couric, Gov. Palin responded simply: “Game on.”

Indeed.

  1. Sarah Palin is not thin skinned and has made fools of anyone calling her dumb.
    She is successful because she doesn’t let anything (sexist or not) deter her from her mission. ABO- ..

  2. I said disagree but not personal attacks, eg, “dumb” when the person clearly is not dumb. I disagree with DWS, but I don’t call her sexist names. I disagree with Pelosi, I call her a backstabber, which she is, but I don’t call her sexist names.

  3. Any women that supports Obama’s policies is subject to fierce criticism- like DW Schultz, Napolitano, Jarett, MO, Sebellius, etc…

    Making blanket statements that all women should be immune to criticism because they are women is putting gender over country . We campaign for equal rights and equal treatment… If a man can be criticized especially an Obamacrat, than so can women who carry water for him.

  4. Yes. Sarah appears to be bright and has street smarts as well. Hillary is brilliant. I agree that they both love this country and are very sincere. They have differing philosophies about what is best for the country and have taken different paths in their public service. That’s why it’s so wrong to attack or degrade either of them. Disagreement is fine, but personal attacks are harmful to all women.

  5. Consider this… Hillary is far from dumb- She cannot be attacked using that insult to degrade her image. So, they use other avenues. Personally attacking her body, her hair, her ankles whatever they can degrade about her persona.. Sarah Palin is very attractive. Most likely one of the most attractive female politicians to come along in quite a while. She uses her looks for attention… she knows the power she wheels…but she uses her ability to attract attention not for her own gratification or puffing up her ego, but to reinforce the principles of the Founding Fathers… She uses her looks to reinforce the original idea of a country called America.. Love of America, protecting it from being hi-jacked by the likes of the current administration and devolving into a broken land people divided killing each other ultimately destroying the resources America has to offer crippling her into a Third world country. I believe as Sarah does. We have to FIGHT for what RIGHT…

    Hillary chose a different path because she could. She developed her skill as a policy wonk using her knowledge and experience to qualify her to Lead this country… and her similarities to Palin are evident. Hillary Loves this country as much as we do- She has devoted her life to elevating herself through the ranks to catch that Brass Ring always considered out of reach for a woman… they are two different people yet they are the same…Their heart’s are America personified.. mine too..

    And I think both women would agree with this assessment- Jealousy coming from other women has plagued them all their lives… But that is a whole other discussion- for another day..

  6. I may not agree with all of Sarah Palin’s politics…..but she’s NOT dumb, that’s for sure. I wonder why a woman gets branded “dumb” so easily and readily? Especially disappointing coming from another woman.

  7. Well, Karen, we will have to tune in and see- won’t we?

    Palin didn’t appear that dumb to me when she was running for VP- especially after the new movie depicting her as a quick study on domestic affairs of the country. When we knew after she was elected Governor of Alaska, she turned the state around, benefiting Alaskans with a share of Big Oil’s company profits to be divided into hefty checks for CA$H going to each and every Alaskan Citizen… I suppose you would stick to your opinion of her and refuse accepting a Big Oil check if you were a resident of Alaska… How dumb is that?

  8. NBC lost me for good. Using someone as dumb as Palin shows the level to which NBC will stoop for ratings.
