Governor Palin’s Full Discussion With Michael Medved

I notice that places like Mediaite or Washington Post who are putting out pieces about Governor Palin’s call-in-surprise to Michael Medved are giving a very edited account of what actually happened.

So, thanks to our favorite media guy, iizthatiiz, we now have the entire exchange available.

There are a few things to point out.  The way Medved was discussing Governor Palin before she called in seemed to take a massive flip.  Before he was talking to her, he was anything but kind insinuating that she used impeachment as a publicity ploy for her new channel (which is silly considering she’s been talking about impeachment for weeks now).

After talking to her, he was willing to admit how influential her voice was to conservatism and how much he respected her.

Now, I am not going to be unnecessarily snarky here.  The truth is it doesn’t do any good.  But the real thing learned from this exchange is how certain members of the GOP establishment will say one thing about Governor Palin while she’s not around but will do a complete switch once she’s talking with them.  The same thing goes for even some Democrats who seem to love her when she’s in their presence, but trash her behind her back.

What is important though is the validity behind Governor Palin’s serious call for Obama’s impeachment.  This idea that something should be politically convenient is of course one crafted by sitting politicians and their apologists in the media who are willing to go along to get along.  And Medved’s argument about what Democrats would or wouldn’t do is irrelevant at this very moment.  First, you have to get the GOP to grow a backbone, then with a united party ready to hold a lawless president accountable, you gain support of the people.  Then, those who cross political differences begin to realize the importance of a precedent, they eventually weaken and cave.

I wouldn’t want any president be it Bush, Obama, or even Governor Palin to be exempt from the rule of law.  With Obama’s waning popularity, he only promises to pull the entire Democrat Party down with him — unless they at least pretend to care and do something about it.  They have future re-elections to worry about.  He doesn’t.  They know it more than any of us do and seemingly more than the Republican cowards who want to hide behind Boehner’s shiny lawsuit, tip-toe, and pretend that it’s enough to show-vote incessantly about ObamaCare yet refuse to use the power of the purse to defund it.  The people are tired of their constant forfeiting of the heavy-lifting required in public service.

Heavy lifting is tough, but possible.  Our framers set up this process, no matter how many times politicians and Obama stomp on it or dance around it — those framers made it possible, but they never promised it would be easy or politically convenient.

Enjoy the video.

    Hot Air’s Rathman never let on that it was she who called him. Thanks Steve, for your account, and iizthatiiz too.

    RINOs keep saying "impeaching POS ‘Walking DEBT’ Obama" would help
    POS ‘Walking DEBT’ Obama. RINOs keep bringing up
    PERVERTED Clinton’s impeachment as example. RINOs keep saying the
    failure to impeach PERVERTED Clinton made JACKA55 (donkey)
    democrats/liberals more popular.

    So let me get this straight.
    If PERVERTED Clinton and JACKA55 (donkey) democrats/liberals
    became popular, then why did American people vote to elect
    REPUBLICAN George W. Bush in 2000?


  • qtdb7

    John Boehner is a WUSS.

    Impeachment is still too lenient for POS ‘Walking DEBT’ Obama.
    He should be in jail for TREASON just for that prisoner
    exchange. He helped and replenished ENEMIES of the U.S.
    by prisoner trading/exchanging 5 high ranking
    Taliban/Al Qaeda terrorists for a
    DESERTER/TRAITOR Bowe Bergdahl.
    It is a RAW deal.

    POS ‘Walking DEBT’ Obama and democrats/liberals use and hide
    behind those ILLEGAL immigrant children for their political
    benefits. They don’t give a CRAP about those children.

    This reminds me of the communist countries (China, Russia,
    North Korea, Cuba, … etc.) using children for their political
    propagandas. But I digress.

    If those ILLEGAL immigrants would come to America and vote for
    Republicans, POS ‘Walking DEBT’ Obama and democrats/liberals
    would have built not only a simple barb wire fence, but also
    10 "Great Wall of China" between U.S. and Mexico border.

    Article 2, Section 4 of The U.S. Constitution:

    The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the
    United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for,
    and Conviction of, Teason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and

    High Crimes and Misdemeanors


    The generally accepted viewpoint is much broader. It defines high
    crimes and misdemeanors as any serious abuse of power—including
    both legal and illegal activities. Supporters of this reading
    believe that because impeachment is a public inquiry, first and
    fore-most, it is appropriate to read the phrase broadly in order
    to provide the most thorough inquiry possible. Thus, a civil
    officer may face impeachment for misconduct, violations of oath
    of office, serious incompetence, or, in the case of judges,
    activities that undermine public confidence or damage the
    integrity of the judiciary.


    So let me get this straight.
    If a cop lies/cheats/steals, then that cop goes to JAIL or
    gets FIRED.
    If ‘Walking DEBT’ Obama, Hillary ‘Benghazi’ Clinton,
    Joe ‘plagiarist/THIEF’ Biden,and other politicians in U.S. Congress
    lie/cheat/steal, then those CROOKS get a pay raise and other

    Am I living in a TWILIGHT zone?

    What do you call a person like POS ‘Walking DEBT’ Obama who
    gets paid $400,000.00/yr and not doing his job?

    Annual Salaries of Top US Government Officials

    If a person paid me to mow his/her lawn or deliver a service,
    I then took the money without mowing the lawn or providing a
    service. Does that make me a CROOK/LIAR/PHONY? Should I be
    put in jail for FRAUD?

    Since these JACKA55 democrats/liberals BILLIONAIRES WANT
    these ILLEGAL immigrants (UNDOCUMENTED democrats), why
    don’t they PAY the COSTS of housings, foods, educations,
    healthcares, clothes, shoes, cellphones, TVs, … etc.
    for these ILLEGAL immigrants?
    TALK is CHEAP.

    Okay. This interview really describes the difference in how Palin is looking at this impeachment issue, and how the GOPe looks at this issue. He kept talking about polls and that is what drives these folks.

    The governor is looking at this as a constitutional crises and that it’s a right vs. wrong issue; And the remedy is impeachment to right the wrong (lawlessness) being committed by the president. Which is what the framers intended be done to reign in a lawless president.

    The GOPe is looking at this lawlessness with a remedy of a lawsuit which is a political maneuver in which they hope will appease the voters and not upset or wake up the democrat voters. The problem is that it will take forever to go through the channels and the court could very well reject it.

    Bottom line: The governor is seriously concerned about saving the country, and the GOPe is seriously concerned about winning the next election and will let nothing get in the way of that, and to hell with the country.

      Palin actually believes in accountability. Medved is willing to have accountability be the manservant to expediency.

      • lyndaaquarius

        very succinct analysis.

      • hope4palins

        Perfect. That was "the soul of wit" at its best. Thank you.

      • lyndaaquarius

        what is amusing to me is that Medved clearly thinks of himself as much smarter than Sarah Palin. Underestimating Ms Palin is a foolish move as he’ll come to understand.She’s far shrewder than he is.

  • patnatasha

    he is a jerk.

  • Lennart Bilén

    Since it is the White House and the Democrats that try to energize their base by drumming up the impeachment talk and in doing so advertise Sarah Palins new channel, let us help them to talk it up.
    Here is my contribution as if sung by Barack Obama (to the tune of "Please release me, let me go"

    Please impeach me, let me go

    I can’t usurp it any more

    Make decisions is a chore

    and bargain, it is to me a bore.


    I believed in change and hope.

    It changed for worse, I cannot cope

    I began to sulk and mope

    I am at the end of my rope.


    I have had all I can take

    Dethrone me now for goodness sake

    Lest a bigger mess I make

    So check my credentials, I’m a fake.


    I was made in U.S.A.,

    but born in Kenya, so they say.

    ineligible to play

    commander, defrock me, don’t delay.


    Nothing I did was a hit.

    I acted more like a nit-wit.

    Dad was just a drunken Brit.

    Depose me, I’m not allowed to quit.


    Please, I am but one lame duck

    The grizzly moms have too much pluck

    I am scared they’ll go amok

    So boot me, your country starts to suck.


    Sacrificed the SEAL team six

    I heaved them all the old deep-six

    Add Grand Treason to the mix

    Disbar me! This dog has no more tricks.


    Fast and Furious was my pace

    And that’s how I did win the race.

    It did blow up in my face

    So launch me somewhere to outer space.


    In Benghazi people died

    And Hillary and Rice both lied.

    I was AWOL, went to hide.

    So face it: I’ve joined the other side.


    AP bothered me with facts.

    I spied on all their phone contacts.

    That’s how a thin-skinned guy reacts,

    My next move? Guantanamo barracks.


    IRS was my best friend.

    With thugs on which I did depend.

    But they failed me in the end.

    So jail me, or this will never end.


    When those phony scandals broke

    I shrugged my head, I’m just a bloke.

    It’s not lies, I just misspoke.

    I fooled you twice, now we all are broke.

    VA healthcare, it is said:

    Deny, delay until they’re dead.

    Be found out, it is my dread

    my epitaph will state: You have been had.


    Ten* Jihadists did I free

    for one deserter**, look at me;

    breaking laws for all to see;

    You gave me your vote, it had to be.


    Children crossing Rio Grande;

    As shields they get the welcome hand;

    Open borders for my band;

    Jihadists, and thugs will rule your land.


    Lois Lerner lost her mail.

    My IRS began to fail.

    Soon I am no chief to hail,

    Guantanamo next – and post no bail!

    Perhaps I should start listening to Michael Medved taped-delay program more often. The only good thing about it other than Sarah Palin’s the main topic, is I’m supporting the radio station here.

  • DocBarry1
  • daisy_mae

    I totally agree with your comments Steve. I believe Sarah’s energy of conviction is so strong on this issue that it’s inspiring the American people to press on with her and members of congress, that may surprise us, to do the right thing and remove BO.

  • hope4palins


    Thank you. You said my thoughts better than I could think them.

  • LuvGuvSP

    The Guv really takes this guy to school and what I LUV, LUV, LUV the most about this entire clip is the very beginning: Medved first takes the Guv’s call and says "I guess you were listening to the show and hearing some areas of disagreement?" and the Guv says, and this is CLASSIC Governor Palin, "Well, I was listening to Rush Limbaugh, your competitor, but he went to commercial so I switched over to your show" and then she proceeds to tell him "evidently you have not been reading what I have been writing about impeachment…." Sarahcuda all the way!

    • ernst1776

      She owned him

    • c4pfan

      LMAO! Love that too.

    • John W.

      The Guv was being charitable by referring to Mr. Medved as a competitor of Rush Limbaugh’s. Based on the ratings, it’s not much of a competition.

  • c4pfan

    Well stated Steve! Also, go Sarah! I’m sick of people using her as a punching bag.

  • aaron66krohn

    Great replies from Sarah!
    Made me think of how it must have been when she sat across the table from Big Oil’s CEO’s as Governor!`
    Who says she’s not intelligent?
    Or doesn’t know how to put forth a succinct and powerful argument?
    Or lacks the persuasive power and fundamental charm to be able to state her case, knowing she’s right?

    She did it as Governor of Alaska.
    She would have done it as Vice-President.
    And beginning at noon of January 20, 2017, she will do it as Madame President Sarah Louise Palin, first female President of the United States!!

  • CharterOakie

    She stands for what is right and true, not what is expedient.

    And "poles are for strippers."

    Polls, ‘holes, moles and trolls.
