John Oliver on Sarah Palin’s “Today Show” appearance (video)

Who knew Sarah Palin has a new pay-subscription Web video channel, for all those Palin fans who just can’t get enough of the woman who handed the presidency to Barack Obama.

The Daily Beast has a wonderful write-up of Palin’s “show”:

The content, not surprisingly, will be easily lampoonable by the “liberal elite intellectuals” that the channel’s namesake frequently rails against. There’s a surfeit of paeans to Ronald Reagan; a countdown of “DAYS LEFT IN THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION”; a regular “ASK ME ANYTHING” video in which just-plain-Sarah fields personal and political questions from inquiring subscribers; a featured link to “Bristol’s Blog,” in which the oldest Palin daughter (and single mom) muses on everything from a biblically correct Adam-and-Eve routine on Dancing With the Stars to the treachery of Lena Dunham and the Hollywood lefties who empower it; and “SALLY’S WORD OF THE DAY,” chosen by Palin’s mother Sally Heath.

Thursday’s word was “judicious.” Presumably, Sally Heath’s future words of the day will not include “revigorated,” as in her daughter’s “ASK ME ANYTHING” answer to a subscriber who was interested in supporting a third political party. “Reagan didn’t believe in a third party when he was running,” Palin chirped. “He believed in a revigorated GOP.” (Also, not to be a pedant about it, but the ex-guv is flat wrong when she goes on to assert in the same answer that Reagan “first ran for president in 1976”; Palin’s research team, if any, should note: The year was 1968.)

I found a John Oliver segment, that may or may not be recent (it’s not dated), about Sarah Palin’s “brave” appearance on the Today Show. It’s below. Enjoy.

    “She really is the Twinkie of the human race” Absolutely hilarious! Good one

  • RUexperienced

    Her website also claims that Alaska was the 50th state, when in fact it was the 49th state in the Union. Even when it was pointed out that her website was incorrect Palin never bothered to correct it.

    Fact checking is not something Palin seems concerned about.

    You mean – such depths?

  • Haviva

    She seems to be getting worse as she ages; and she was really bad when we were first assaulted by that screeching voice of stupidity. Who knew she could reach new heights?

  • Teh stupid…….it hurts!

  • Can we have extra slaps for all the liberals who gloated over the demise of the GOP for most of late 2008 into the middle of 2009. Yeah, demised right into a majority in both houses of Congress and most of the state legislatures and governorships. Next time let’s try strategizing instead of gloating.

    Judging by Oliver’s hair I don’t think it’s that recent

  • Butch1

    When they bring in his annual birthday cake the candles are so bright it confuses him to the point where he starts giving another press conference.

  • Thom Allen

    My sympathies for having a sister like that. Someone who likes the Tundra Twit [SHUDDER]

  • nicho

    He probably doesn’t remember that he did. He’s mostly interested in what color pudding he’s having tonight.

  • nicho

    For some people, my sister included, she is a saint.

  • Eyes Open 2016

    You should change the name of this blog to “Behind the times.”

  • Butch1

    He has never apologized for choosing her. It is one of his major flaws not being able to admit when he has made a major mistake.

  • Butch1

    You had better wear a leather glove; your hand will surely get bruised from all that slapping. Do you have an assistant with a towel handy to intermittently dab your forehead?

  • I think it was more wishful thinking than any real belief that it would actually happen. You can’t keep a good whore down. Once she had the taste of easy gullible rube money, there was no going back. But the simple fact is, she was irrelevant then, and she continues to be. The only thing she provides at all to the American discourse is an easy target for mockery.

    Imagine the people actually paying for this tripe.

  • This is McCain’s legacy. He inflicted this idiot on us and she and her brood are never giving up the spotlight.

  • woodroad34

    Well, you know…I always thought sh*t calcifies and crumbles into the earth; but I have to hand it to Dupont or whatever chemical processing company that discovered a way to keep sh*t stinking forever. She really is the Twinkie of the human race.

  • nicho

    I just want to seriously bitch-slap all those people who told us in November of 2008 that we would never hear from Sarah Palin again. You know who you are. Please form a line to the right.
