Default Fox News kicks Sarah Palin to the curb

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/p...-news/1865533/

I think the money is going to start drying up.

I'm not looking forward to the next act.

Good for them.
Palin is responsible for turning the conservative movement into a joke.

Well, she's already had a reality show, so the next logical move is.... sex tape?

Good news, never liked her, and rarely did I think she had anything interesting to say.

Nah... The fake porn Sarah(Paylin)? Ive seen her, and she is much better looking than the real one.

She would probably ruin the fantasy..

Never understood why people would look to a female politicians as fantasy fodder as opposed to models, actress or indeed porn stars. There's pretty much no doubt the the conservative pundits and politicos who were pushing Palin even before McCain got involved did so in part because of her looks.

Because there is a % of the population that will like her just because she's good looking. I'm certainly not someone who would support a political figure because of their physical attractiveness, but even I have to admit that being physically attracted to someone makes the more likable and/or tolerable.

on the flip side.... Barack Obama is the king of this subject... Obama gets more slack than any politician I have ever seen simply due to the fact that women find this guy soo handsome..

"get off his back!! cant you see the republicans are trying to bring him down? we need to support our president!!"

that would be the response to a foreign policy critique of Obama.

Like Octomom, Palin's sex tape value is plummeting. Not even hardcore MILF fans would buy that shit.

I don't doubt Obama benefits from this, but he has the style and the substance. In Palin's case, she didn't have many more positives other than hers looks.


*I think men feel positive towards him because of his looks as well. I don't think men are immune to that, even if they don't realize that. Romney benefitted from this as well. Chris Christie is going to be on the opposite end to this.
