Yet Another Palin Political Obituary that Contradicts Liberal Rhetoric

Written by a columnist most have never heard of — for a network that struggles on its best day to flicker, an article sits that dares to measure Governor Palin’s flame (or alleged lack of).

Along with the fact that they admit Democrats are using her current call for Obama’s impeachment as a means to raise money, it contradicts and flat out blows the lid off some of the left’s rhetoric about Governor Palin.

It begins about the Governor:

How could someone filled with such promise plunge so far, so fast?

It goes on to cite a new poll from the patriarchs of credibility at NBC:

The majority of Americans – 54% – believe Palin is too outspoken, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg poll.


[T]he majority of Americans want Palin to keep quiet.

Okay for Pete’s sake, we have to stop here for a second (but it gets better).

First off, since when was MSNBC willing to admit that Governor Palin ever had "such promise?"

Second, the NBC poll cited reflecting opposition to Palin’s voice reveals that the biggest chunk of such opposition is from liberal Democrats — a stunningly, overwhelming two thirds of Democrats that is.  Gee, how many times have we been told over the years that Governor Palin only helps Democrats and hurts Republicans?  Remember, Bob Beckel called her the "gift that keeps on giving?"  Late night comedians joked that Barack Obama would pay for ads of her running for president (indicating she’d be the easy opponent that Mitt Romney turned out be).  Now suddenly, they finally admit they want her silenced (as if we didn’t know that already).

At least the author of this piece went on to face a tad bit of reality:

[I]t doesn’t look like she’ll be drop off the national radar anytime soon.

(The typo is the author’s — see what Palin derangement does?)

Perhaps the best part of this though is the author’s use of Nicolle Wallace to make her point.  She quotes Wallace as saying (emphasis mine)

Sarah Palin could have been anything she wanted to be – an adviser, maybe a run for the presidency, a stalwart for some of the policy issues she cared about like energy. But she took a different path, one that really surprised people.

Aside for the fact that there isn’t a politician in D.C. that comes close to being the "stalwart" Governor Palin is on energy, isn’t it interesting that Nicolle Wallace is suggesting such things as a Palin presidential run?

Isn’t this the same Nicolle Wallace that was portrayed and used for credibility in HBO’s fictional-flop "Game Change?"  By the end of the film meant to slander Palin, Wallace hardly gives the impression of someone who truly believes what she says today.

What do they say about smoke and rhetoric fading away and how it leaves the truth for all to see?  It seems Wallace and this writer at MSNBC have just proven it in their attempt to manufacture more.

  • RedDaveR

    To use Nicolle Wallace as an "expert" shows MSDNC’s desperation. If Sarah Palin’s star has really fallen that much, why do they keep writing about her?

  • tomlyn

    Hillary is now moving away from Obama as she prepares to run for office. With the Dems it’s never about our country but only about how they can keep power ! At least Sarah doesn’t play that political game and that’s why I will always support her !

  • Lennart Bilén

    Sarah Palin is feared from the left and the right,

    She must be a centrist, oh what a delight.

    We know there aren’t many

    In fact, hardly any.

    She’s filling the vacuum and will lead the fight.

    • jerseymark

      Sarah is feared from the Left and the GOP Establishment which is NOT on the Right. The Right loves Palin.

  • Victoria Richardson

    Nicole Wallace who worked for the McCain/Palin team never even voted for the ticket even when she was getting paid by the campaign she was working for. Sarah Palin is a threat to the left, we have heard all these same old lines like "She is irrelevant" or "Her star has faded" and so on and so on. What other person can get over 20,000 comments on a website or a facebook message that the media around the World listens too. And they said she could have been anything she wanted to be, Yeah if she agreed with their political views, she is her own person that’s who she wants to be, like it or lump it. She is getting the word out on her policy;s like energy among other issues facing this country.

    • Lemuel Vargas

      She and that guy (forgot his name) were the 1st to back stab the McCain/Palin ticket by voting Obama instead of the campaign that was paying them for advice. Maybe that is why that guy advised McCain to go to Washington, D.C. to pass the stimulus bill. He really wanted McCain to fail.

      • Spartan4Palin

        The only one who realized that they were snakes was the Governor. McLame still believes these morons.

        Gotta say, Sarah needs to cut the strings of support for these people. She won’t get far keeping up the ‘dedicated running mate’ line.

  • bri

    Why does Fox News and it’s affiliates (Fox Hosts and WSJ poll) attack one of their own? Is it some kind of sick joke. I really wish Sarah would ask them what’s up with that.

  • myfairlady

    Yeah, they tout their poll of 1,134 (I think that’s the number I saw at the bottomof the poll) participants. But I think that the Drudge poll from 7-8-14 is what caught the attention of a lot of them. Of course it’s not scientific and you don’t get a break down of political parties, but it’s still significant. That was a lot of votes.

    Drudge Poll that was listed with Palin’s article Tuesday, 7-8-14

    Total Votes: 332,035

    YES 72.75% (241,570 votes)
    NO 12.96% (43,016 votes)
    NOT NOW 14.29% (47,449 votes)

    McCain Adviser: Wallace’s ‘Fiction’

    "Charlie Black, a senior adviser to Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign, tells NRO that former McCain aide Nicolle Wallace is peddling “fiction, not only in her new novel, but in what she is saying about Governor Palin.”

    Over at the Washington Examiner, Byron York reports that Wallace is claiming, in a new Time interview, that McCain’s team considered bumping Palin from the veep slot. “There certainly were discussions — not for long because of the arc the campaign took — but certainly there were discussions about whether, if McCain were to win, it would be appropriate for her to be sworn in,” Wallace tells the magazine.

    Black says that’s nonsense. “Nicolle, like any author, is trying to sell books. This comment to Time, like her book [It’s Classified], is a piece of fiction. There were never any such discussions. At no high level of the campaign was there ever such talk. She’s probably doing this to sell her book.”

    “Look, I was with McCain 90 percent of the time. If I wasn’t around, I knew what was happening. And nothing like this happened.” Wallace, he says, “is one of the few dissidents,” one of the “disaffected” staffers who continues to criticize Palin, and “she is inaccurate in doing so.”

  • Reynolds88

    Nickky W is just hoping that her best friend and former employer Katie Couric drops over to see her and maybe invites her to KC’s lavish Hampton home. KC went from Walter Cronkite award (for fast-talking and editing her interview with Sarah Palin) to one job loss after another. She finally married some guy and probably believes she will ascend into heaven. NickkyW just wants to be on that train… but Hello, that train ain’t goin to Jordan, like the one Curtis Mayfield sang about! ENJOY! (

    This is how much of a liar Nicole Wallace (and Schmithead) are:
    McCain Campaign Considered Not Letting Palin Be Sworn In if They Won

    • DocBarry1

      Nicole Wallace and her husband – Shame on both of them – they fit in nicely with MSNBC and they should join Obama’s administration because lying seems so easy.

  • AndAwayWeGo

    This is also the same Nicole Wallace whom Mediaite’s Joe Concha stated would be PERFECT for a gig on the new lineup on ABC’s "The View"

  • Audrey_I

    Nicole Wallace was on Obama’a and the Democrat Party payroll when she was part of McCain’s presidential campaign team.

  • cbenoistd

    This is eye-opening. I had no idea that a person’s right to speak or publish was negotiable. Has there ever been a poll questioning one person’s, only one’s, First Amendment rights?

  • lyndaaquarius

    Nicole Wallace has clearly proven herself to be untrustworthy.A snake in the grass.

  • Elston Gunn

    Wallace was used by team Romney to stifle any potential possible Presidential run by Sarah Palin in 2012……….Wallace is nothing more than a anti-Palin attack dog, and she exposes her intentions going back to 2008. Wallace is an evil bit#h!

  • Timothy Jacques

    Notice that Wallace and Schmidt are no longer in the campaign business? Hmmmmm? Put bluntly, they are damaged goods in the industry.

    Who would want to hire them for political consulting when….

    1. Failure to serve a client

    2. Leak out lies to the MSM…becoming source material for hit pieces

    3. Value your relationships with the DC press than your client (aka: ambush interviews to ABC (Gibson) and CBS (Couric)

  • jerseymark

    They keep referring to that poll and I just don’t know why. The flip side of that poll (and it is 52% not 54%) is that 48 % don’t want her to be quiet which means they like what they hear. This is a great result for Sarah, especially in light of 3/4 of those wanting her to be quiet are Democrats. This means that she is just a shade away from a majority who want to hear what she has to say.

  • jerseymark

    The other weird thing about this article is the Wallace quote for other than a run for President, which is coming, Sarah has done and is doing exactly what Wallace says she "could have done". Where on earth has Wallace been these last six years?

  • bassman

    Yes that was the same Nicole Wallace that was also caught lying about Gov. Palin.

  • Guest

    Sarah Palin… a nobody of responsibility, nobody in leadership, nobody of relevance.

    • hrh40

      And yet here you are, searching out and taking the time to comment on such a nobody.

      Guess that makes you "less than a nobody."

      Kinda’ sad, huh?
