Asked by the Hollywood Reporter if she had any interest in doing a "political talk show," she replied, "I hear everyone recently got canned from 'The View,' maybe a show like that needs a punch of reality and a voice of reason from America's heartland to knock some humble sense into their scripts. You know, someone willing to go rogue."Jesus Christ. This chick knows how to cling to a goddam script, doesn't she? 2014 and we still gotta hear "go rogue"? Sarah Palin thinking herself as having somehow being an innovator in the "using one's brains to do what they think is right or smart" department is a little like Papa John's claiming to have invented pizza. And yes, what better way to show what a brave pioneer you are than to sit in on a mid-morning talk show on one of the three big networks to talk about exactly why did Beyonce's sister attack Jay-Z in the elevator that time, or what summer fruits to turn into cocktails this summer? Gee. How rogue!
And of course I'd like to hear someone in The View writing room saying: "hey, can we fucking get someone from America's heartland that is so humble he or she will take what we've carefully, pain-stakingly written and then just ignore it to blather on and on any way he or she wants to? Please?"
Luckily we'll always have her "reality" show.
