Joe McGinniss interview, from earlier this year, reveals that there was NEVER any hope of Sarah Palin getting her Fox News contract renewed.

The entire video is quite informative, and you should watch it all, but this is the portion that I found interesting considering what has happened the last few days. And it starts at the 3:26 mark in the video:

Reporter: "In each case there is that disconnect between the public and private image of these individuals."

McGinniss: "Never more so than with Palin, She is all about image. It was remarkable talking to people who've known her from her childhood, her young adulthood, her time as mayor of Wasilla, even as governor of Alaska, they didn't recognize this woman they saw on national television, She utterly transformed herself. There's never been a greater dichotomy between the image and the reality,"

Joe goes on to describe Palin as "a nitwit," "a religious fanatic," vicious," "spiteful," and "ignorant."  You know, accurately.

After that he goes on to say, when speaking of his friend Roger Ailes,  that "I can guarantee you that Roger's not going to renew her contract with Fox News. It runs through this presidential campaign. Roger told me two years ago, we had lunch, and I was just starting my work on Sarah Palin. And he said 'Joe, why are you writing about her? She's so stupid, she's such a nitwit, and she's never going to be anything in American politics. Her time is already over. In 2012 she's not going to be the candidate. She couldn't possibly be the candidate. Too many people are getting to know her, and what they see terrifies them.'"

So I guess for any of those people that think Palin really had a shot at renewing her contract, not so much.

In fact in the Daily Beast article, titled "Fox Made limited Effort to Keep Sarah Palin," that cane out yesterday it all but says as much. They made a tiny offer, just to say that they had (And to keep her crazed fans from burning down their building,), but Ailes was just done with her.

Now here is an interesting thing. I don't think I knew that Joe had revealed that part about Roger Ailes last spring. I did cover his Australian trip to some degree, but I think I may have missed this particular interview.

However back in 2010, while sitting on that porch in Wasilla, Joe DID hint at something similar during a conversation with me. Of course it was told in the strictest of confidences but Joe did tell me that Ailes truly disliked Palin, and that he had done nothing to dissuade him from writing about her in a book.

Apparently what he meant was that Ailes had not tried to talk him out of writing about her for HER sake, but instead apparently suggested he not write about her for HIS sake, because she simply was not worth it.

And do you know what? In the end I think Roger Ailes may have been right.

    I guess it didn't take Roger Ailes long to find out what a "nitwit" he hired. I remember when she used to go on Bill O'Reilly's show and then she stopped appearing with him. I'm assuming either he or Sarah put an end to it because she was being exposed for her stupidity and Bill couldn't tolerate it or maybe Sarah couldn't stand the fact he made her look so stupid. I think most Americans who didn't follow Sarah Palin and saw "Game Change" were horrified at how little she knew of the world.

      After the Arizona shootings, Ailes told Palin not to respond when people criticized her for using cross hairs, targeting candidates, taking aim and all of those gun references. Sarah couldn't keep quiet, issuing her ghost written Blood Libel speech.

    3. I guess it's pretty obvious that what Meghan McCain wouldn't talk about regarding Sarah Palin (and no doubt, her entire entourage) has a lot to do with knowing what a nitwit Palin is.

      Her father John McCain has certainly done a great job maintaining his public cluelessness about his running mate, hasn't he?

      Be sure to check your waders for small tears and pin holes before each trip to the Pee Pond. The toxic goo that flows throughout the site can make an otherwise intelligent, thinking person into a PeeBot Zombie over time with too much exposure to the rhetoric. Well, maybe not an intelligent person. But it can make one sick or depressed to see the mental midgets there worshipping their Grifter Queen.

      I guess they never heard of Jonestown, Guyana in 1978-79. It should be a cautionary tale, but they aren't exactly students of history.

    Our msm just sucks! As we see Aljazeera buying Current TV
    our stupid lameass media will HAVE to report or suffer loss.

    And it was Awesome to see this interview again! It never gets old, pound that nail in, but good!

    It really did irritate the hell out of me how the media kissed her ass and when Joe wrote Pipedreams, he was basically dismissed as some kind of kook instead of a well respected author. Shame on our Media or lack of it.

    It is to the credit of you, Gryphen, to Joe, to Malia, and all the others among us who were appalled and frightened that, in a country of 300+ million people, of all shapes and varieties, somehow the tide washed up a nitwit, a dangerously ignorant and vainglorious woman, who played Chutes and Ladders and ended up nominated to be our Vice President. The amount of time and energy that so many people have taken to counteract her influence is because it is our duty to take away any power or influence she might have.

    For Roger Ailes, her contract was chump change. He put some money on the latest fad, she proved to be not worth it, and he wrote it off as a liability. But until her contract was not renewed, she stlll could pretend she had the backing of Fox. Now, in red letters, she is "Out," as the Huffington Post reports. She has no soapbox, and her audience is shrinking daily. She fooled them one too many times. She, her sad but repulsive family, and the whole circus, have come to an end. Cross our fingers. We need to keep an eye out for the next charlatan who believes he or she can capture political power with lies, evasions, smoke and mirrors. To wit: the current Republican party.

    Being a nitwit and trying to create an image must run in the family. We have the failed reality TV show of Bristol, where we saw exactly how she treated Tripp. No one will forget the scene in some Arizona hotel suite where Tripp was tempted with the sight of a beautiful swimming pool that he couldn't go into, so he reacted as any child would, swearing at his mother and his aunt, repeating all the words he heard them say.

    Chuck Heath Jr. is trying to promote himself as a writer and blogger, while he is just a third grade teacher. I am tempted to write "third rate teacher" because his posts are filled with grammatical errors. Some shining example. His latest series of posts described his mother's operation to have a hip joint replaced. (We can all be polite and wish Sally Heath a speedy recovery). He wanted to post a progress report and describe his mother's surgery (they cleaned her up and it took longer than it should have). The photo that accompanied the report was of Chuck Jr. with a bloody dead walrus. Then he apologized. The next post showed Sally recovering in a hospital room. For anyone who has ever undergone surgery, I'm sure that the first thing that they wanted was a photo taken of them in a drugged state, filled with pain. The caption is, "This one better work or I'm giving up." It makes it sound as if Sally is saying that, since this is her second hip operation. That new hip had better take, or I'm.....no, wait a minute, I think that it's Chuck who is about to give up. There's the Palin fighting spirit! Please, Chuck, please do give up. The kid visiting Sally must be the one who didn't know who Martin Luther King Jr. was. (Chuck's answer: He grew up in the segregated South. What part of Civil Right Movement is important here?)

    Then there is Sarah, who is the text book example of style over substance. It might have played well in Alaska, but on the national stage, we expect more than a wink and a "you betcha" from our political candidates. She only offered hate and rhetoric on Fox. In return for some ratings, she must have generated more jokes. We know the depth of Palin's knowledge, what with ringing those bells and firing those warning shots. A special message for Sarah: The next time that anyone asks what you read, say, "The Bible." Otherwise, all of your religious posturing will look as phoney as your latest wig. Sorry to see ya' go.

      Palin put it out there that she is planning on a diet and fitness book. She is sickly looking now and indeed dresses like Peg Bundy or worse. Perhaps she is delusional that people are spell bound by looks alone and she looks "hot" in the Bundy way.

      I doubted Fox would continue promoting her as
      a sage in politics since her party (except
      McCain) chose to distance her. there comes a time people face that they were conned.

      Palin was masterful to control her image requiring preapproved questions or she would have been exposed like in the Couric interview.

      When a con manipulates a group to not listen or read anything and only believe them the cult seems eternally bound willing to commit atrocities for their leader.

Sarah's followers will drift off or die off and she will have to downsize. Maybe that's what happened to RAM. Sarah is left with Facebook, Twitter and the occasional radio talk show appearance. No publisher will buy her crappy books. No television network will interview her; they've seen enough. What she hasn't already done to ruin her "reputation" was completed in the multi award-winning "Game Change."

    Years from now, if she is still alive, we'll see a "Whatever became of" show about Sarah and her dysfunctional family.

He also loves anyone with a permanent smug, self-satisfied smirk pasted on their face 24/7 since it's the only expression he seems capable of, so when he sees it, he knows he's with one of his kind. He's so fucking stupid he has to ask birdbrains like Sarah and Michelle Malkin to explain things to him because he apparently thinks they have something going on upstairs besides hateful, obsessive thoughts about the Obama family and their supporters.

    Sarah Palin does not believe in coincidences; she's said so numerous times. So it's kind of strange that less than two weeks after the publication of The Rogue: Searching For The Real Sarah Palin by Joe McGinniss, Sarah Palin announced that she wouldn't run for president in the 2012 election.

    Remember, McGinniss and Ailes have been friends for many years; had they talked? AND, McGinniss said of what he wrote: 90 per cent of what I learned is not in the book.

    A reality show that failed. A new book that failed. Speaking engagements were fewer and fewer. An embarrassingly stupid tour/vacation of America in the summer of 2011 that went nowhere. Sarah Palin's appeal was drying up. Nevertheless, her dwindling base, consisting of fanatical low-to-no information voters, thought she would run in 2012. She had promised Roger Ailes that she would announce her decision on Fox. She lied.

    In October 2011, Palin sent a letter to conservative radio host Mark Levin, which he read to his listeners and followed up with an interview with the fast-fading star of the Republican Party: Sarah Palin would not run for president in 2012. Ailes was reportedly so angry with her that he considered refusing to put her on the air again and letting the remainder of her $1 million contract expire in 2013.

    Forget the cracks in God's door: the cracks in Sarah Palin began to show up during the first year of her contract. She didn't maintain the first viewership ratings on Fox. She had a few successes with the mid-term 2010 elections, but made some grievous endorsements as well. Then, in January 2011, the solid waste hit the fan. After Gabby Giffords was gunned down in Tuscon on January 10, Palin felt that she was being persecuted because of the gun sights targeting Democratic candidates on a map that she put on her Facebook page in honor of the 2010 elections -- and kept it up into 2011. So upset was the ex-governor that she called Ailes and demanded air time to give a defensive statement. Ailes refused. The rest is history -- bad history for Palin. She did the Blood Libel thingy, and Ailes was furious.

    Joe's book was the final nail in Sarah's coffin. We should all thank him for doing that. It took a lot of courage to write what he did. It was a dangerous thing to do.

    We still have the aftermath of Sarah's "contribution" to the public discourse. For one, I was accosted by an old man in the produce aisle. I was looking at apples. He told me he could remember when forty pounds of apples were $1 and now look at the price. I told him I came from Alaska where everything was expensive. He barrelled right on to say next year we will be paying $300, we voted for that. Say WHAT? I had no idea what to say in response. He was wearing some kind of hat with a WWII veteran's logo of some kind.

    Later I had lunch with a friend who is into a lot of liberal causes. Her car is plastered with liberal bumper stickers. She ran into an old man as she was leaving the grocery store. He accosted her about the bumper stickers. He told her he sees her all over town sporting her vile "liberal" ideas. She was concerned about how close he was to her and about his tone. She told him she's a grandmother who drives her grandchildren around town. She felt quite threatened. While this was going on, a crowd accumulated around them to watch this spectacle. Evidently he concerned the people coming out of the store as well. Good thing for her.

    My friend and I are little old ladies. We were both taken aback by the hostile tone from these two guys. I think Sarah helped give us that, also the guns and shootings. Then there were the gun nuts we saw right near that same store over the weekend. One of them was driving a truck with gun rant written all over it - Nazi/backwards swastika/communist plot to take out guns, among other things. He couldn't spell either.

    Even now that she's mostly gone from public view, her legacy lives on. It will take us many years to get rid of the violent, uncompromising and racist uprisings she incited as personified in these crazies. Those men we personally encountered likely will not be that long for this world, fortunately for the rest of us. Unfortunately a lot of younger similar men are now trying to run the country and inflict themselves on the rest of us, votes and voters be damned.

      Last gasp of the white patriarchy...and they are running scared. Collecting their guns and ammo and looking for a leader to take them into battle against the 'godless, librul, commie, socialistic feminazi fa**ots and ni**ers.'

      And she is their Joan of Arc. And she knows it. And with her NPD level of crazy...I still think she is dangerous. Just because for so many she seems ridiculous, yet for her followers, she seems inspired of God.

      To this day, this is the most fascinating and disturbing aspect to the phenomena of the Rise of Sarah Palin. How she divides us as a country and a society. That shrill, hateful, scornful, ignorant woman has stirred up so much anger and fear. Her side ways we fear her...that is not it at all. Speaking for myself, I fear her wanton forays into political activism. It's like watching a small child playing with a loaded gun; all the adults in the room are laughing and telling her she's cute...she simpers and smiles and waves it around...at any minute it could go off.

      (mindfulness, deep breaths, practice mindfulness...) I really can get upset when I watch her in action; or watch the outcomes of her actions. For my health and the well-being of this rapidly changing society, daily I am going to focus as much attention as I pay to her, on to something positive...say, my garden now that it is a little bit brighter at the end of each day.

    Fox was supposed to issue a formal announcement but Palin leaked the news first to give the impression that she chose to walk away when in reality Fox just wanted rid of her hence 70% pay cut or hit the road.
    Meanwhile the sea o pee is in a frenzy of religious fervor, all pretense of just being supporters of a politician thrown to the wind, their true face has been emerging for a couple of weeks now:they truly ARE a CULT they believe Palin to be half deity, a saintly and brilliant gift from God sent here at this time to change history worldwide, and they see this development as further proof of her integrity her love of country and her destiny to be the next POTUS, they are claiming that she walked away from her million dollar contract to save the country, to start campaigning unshackled..some of you that are familiar with the c4p crowd are probably yawning at it all but for a newbie it is fascinatingly terryifing to read some of the comments.

    "It was racist. Sarah may not be able to do anything but I can. I am offened as a woman and I am going to file a complaint with every woman's group I can find.To purposely go out and find an ugly picture when u had a good picture posted on the same article that is bigotry against woman"

    Alaska Family Physician of the Year award for 2001 Dr. Cathy Baldwin-Johnson

    Anom 12:04 was asking questions about a Dr Cathy Baldwin-Johnson, if she knows anything about Trig's birth and who is his real birth mother?

    Is this the same doctor that Sarah Palin endorsed for numerous prestigious award? Its nice to see people associated with Sarah Palin rewarded for their excellent service and dedication.


    Dr Cathy Baldwin-Johnson is the Doctor who delivered Trig Palin, and presumably knows who from, Bristol or Sarah.The good doctor has worked in Wasilla AK since 1985.  She delivered Sarah Palin's daughter Piper.Dr. Baldwin-Johnson won a national award in 2002, Family Practitioner of the Year. This award was based on letters of recommendation from ... you guessed it ... the Mayor of Wasilla, Sarah Palin.The 48-year-old doctor was nominated by the Alaska Chapter of AAFP, which had presented her with the Alaska Family Physician of the Year award for 2001. Letters of recommendation came from a variety of people, including the mayor of Wasilla and a commissioner for the state of Alaska.Dr. Baldwin-Johnson is Gov. Palin's physician.  Gov. Palin, after her water broke, travelled from Texas, to Anchorage AK, then to Baldwin-Johnson's hospital to deliver.
