Lorne Michaels Praises Sarah Palin in a New Book



In a new book by Washington Post TV critic Tom Shales and James Andrew Miller, Saturday Night Live executive producer Lorne Michaels has nothing but nice things to say about Former Governor of Alaska and Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, whom Tina Fey impersonated to great ratings.
Excerpts were printed in the Hollywood reporter and give rare, behind-the-scenes glimpses at some of the most defining and controversial political comedy sketches from the show's history, with interviews from Fey, Palin and executive director Lorne Michaels.
Michaels said that Palin had "wonderful manners" when she appeared on the show, which he attributed to her being in a beauty pageant before she entered politics.
"[Palin] has wonderful manners — and I honestly don't mean this in a condescending way — but it's that pageant-winner thing," he says in the book.
When Palin decided to appear on the show about a month before the presidential election, Michaels says that Fey was "terrified of anything where they would be together looking like an endorsement."
"I know that they portrayed me as an idiot, and I hated that," Palin says in the book. "I wanted to come on the show and counter some of that."
Fey pitched recording the sketch in the hallway to avoid Palin getting booed by audience members.
"I was the one pitching, 'Why don't you start her backstage, you know, with Alec [Baldwin], so the crowd won't boo,'" Fey says in the book.
"She had just been booed at a hockey game in Philadelphia, and I thought we had to be cautious. And of course the audience was just happy to see her because she was a star, a media star,” she added. “Even the New York audience was not feeling their politics at that moment."
Palin says in the new book that comedian Tina Fey owes her after portraying the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee for laughs on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”
"If I ran into Tina Fey again today, I would say, 'You need to at least pay for my kids' braces or something from all the money that you made off of pretending that you're me,' " Palin is quoted as saying in “Live from New York,” an updated history of the comedy sketch series.
“My goodness, you capitalized on that — can't you contribute a little bit? Jeez," Palin adds.

Sarah Palins 11 Common Sense Conservative Commandments

Democratic Progressive sweetheart Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, recently listed 11 principles that she calls the "progressive commandments."

It looks like Warren may be gearing up to challenge Hillary Clinton, something that President Obama is reportedly urging her to do.

If she does, she will need to contend with former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, who responded to Warren point by point or, should I say, commandment by commandment on her new SarahPalinChannel. Thanks to Breitbart for this. You can read the transcript on their site.


Why Would Sarah Want The View?

Why in the world would any reasonable person want to put up the the screeching, inane, left-wing, attack of lunatics like Rosie O'Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg?

Why would anyone Conservative woman want to work for Rachel Maddow Executive Producer Bill Wolff?

The odds are stacked against anyone with a different point of view than the progressive posse.  S.E. Cupp found that out the hard way when she was attacked by the two angry hens during an live audition in New York.

Radar Online reports that Rosie especially went on a tirade, "You're just rattling off Republican talking points.  That's not what we need."

Rosie then reportedly said, "I will not let this turn into another Elisabeth Hasselbeck situation."

Rosie O'Donell did the world a favor and famously left the show 7 years ago after an on set blow up with Hasselbeck, who is now anchoring Fox and Friends on Fox News.

Apparently, Whoopi and Rosie don't want anyone on the set who disagrees with their radical point of views.  Sarah Palin would be able to handle these two Hollywood freaks, but why would she want to?


Watch Out Rosie, Here Comes Sarah

Just imagine Sarah Palin taking on the likes of Rosie O'Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg.  I'd watch!  Soon you may not have to imagine because Radar Online is reporting that the former Governor of Alaska is in serious talks to join the daytime gabfest show The View.

During the discussions, it was brought up that mainstream Americans hadn't heard of Sarah Palin for awhile, despite her frequent appearances on Fox News.

Really?  First, why in the heck does that matter.  Nobody knew about half of their successful hosts before they were hired.  And some of the duds, like Jenny McCarthy were well known.  Second, who in America doesn't know Sarah Palin.  

Anyway, according to Radar Online's network source, "Being very savvy, Governor Palin decided to launch and online video channel as a way to engage more Americans and prove to executives that she can still create buzz."

Seriously, who can create more "buzz" than Sarah Palin?

It seems the Governor is definitely interested.  Last month she told The Hollywood Reporter that she would make a great host of the show and "bring some sense back to the daytime talk show."

"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," she said. "You know, someone willing to go rogue."


She also added, "It would be so much fun to shake it up taking on issues that make audiences objectively consider all sides, and I'd do it with my own real-life groundedness, candor and common sense that I'm known for. Media needs that today, verses the condescension that oozes from TV and radio."
Palin's reality television show, Amazing America with Sarah Palin, just got picked up for a second season by The Sporting Network.

Sarah Palin Wants Waterboarding to Baptize Terrorists

Sarah Palin would like all terrorists to know that if she were in charge, waterboarding is how the United States would baptize them. That's what the former Alaskan governor and ex-vice presidential nominee told thousands of attendees this weekend at the National Rifle Association's annual convention in Indianapolis. And they loved it! Palin mocked what she called the Obama administration's coddling of suspected terrorists. "Enemies, who would utterly annihilate America, they who'd obviously have information on plots, to carry out jihad," Palin said. "Oh, but you can't offend them, can't make them feel uncomfortable, not even a smidgen." The White House, she said, has failed to put "the fear of God in our enemies." The conservative firebrand also warned the pro-gun lobby that they — "intolerant, antifreedom leftist liberals" and "clownish, 'Kumbaya'-humming, fairytale-inhaling" Democrats — are seeking to "strip away our Second Amendment rights." "If you control oil, you control an economy. If you control money, you control commerce," Palin said. "But if you control arms, you control the people, and that is what they're trying to do." She called gun-free school zones "stupid on steroids." "Maybe our kids could be defended against criminals on the spot if more Mama Grizzlies carried [guns]," she said. "And [the] Obama administration wants you ID'd for that? Well, then go ahead and carry a sign, too. A sign that says 'Yeah, I carry a gun because a cop is too heavy.'" The them-versus-us rhetoric from the tea party favorite continued. "When a kid in school is cussing away like any character in any Tarantino movie, nobody bats an eye," Palin said. "Ooh, but a kid saying a prayer in school, those hypocrites lose their minds."
