Lawrence O'Donnell takes a much deserved victory lap at the news that Fox News has kicked Sarah Palin to the curb. After all Lawrence was NEVER fooled by Sarah Palin. Never!

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Courtesy of the Last Word:

In Monday’s Rewrite segment, O’Donnell gave one giant I-told-you-so to pundits and media organizations who took the former Alaska governor seriously as a contender to run against President Obama in the 2012 race. 

“New York Times reporters were not the only ones fooled by Sarah Palin pretending to think about running for president,” said O’Donnell. He also name-checked Dick Morris, Karl Rove, Rudy Giuliani and Game Change author Mark Halperin. 

O’Donnell played a clip reel of the many times he predicted that her flirtations with the Oval Office were a complete “joke,” and reminded viewers of “the world in which the political media hung on every Sarah Palin tweet” and “every ridiculous Facebook post.” 

“It seems now like a far off world, the world in which the political media took Sarah Palin seriously. And now she has lost even the slightest connection to political relevance since FOX News last week unceremoniously dumped her from their paid players list,” said O’Donnell. 

Wow! Lawrence is having almost TOO much fun.

But you can't blame him. He was many time just about the ONLY pundit on any network to call bullshit on Palin's phony political prick teasing about possibly running for President.

God I love the smell of vindication ins the morning. don't you?

    LOD was right about Sarah and the Donald! This man knows what he is talking about.

    (Part 1)

    I wasn't sure what to expect but Shailey's story blew me away. I also didn't think it was possible for me to feel more contempt for the Palins' than I already do but this tripled it at the very least. Todd is a snake, lower than dirt, taking advantage of a mother of two disabled children, using her for sex and then "referring" his friends and business associates to her. What really rocked me was hearing that she was not the only woman he had done this to. Shailey met several others who had been recruited by Todd. He used to run ads on Craigslist and was so very familiar with the lifestyle that he already knew what words to use as code to indicate special services, etc. She talks about how he deposited $350 in her account one month for seeing six of his friends and how he suddenly expected her to now service him for free! The number of clients increased but the money remained the same. I know many of us have often wondered how the Palins afforded the lifestyle they had, their toys and vacation homes, not to mention buying their third home in Alaska within 15 years of marriage while Sarah had only worked making a decent salary for 1/3 of those years. Four children in Alaska is not inexpensive but now we know how they made ends meet. Sarah may have not known just how he made his extra money back then but she certainly does now. It's more than enough to trigger an IRS investigation.Todd was also a whiny, needy, insecure little boy who needed to be reassured about his sexual prowess, his size and ability to please Shailey. He also had some wierd requests that Shailey went along with in order to provide for her kids. I can't imagine how Shailey got through this and came out whole but she did and my heart goes out to her. Shailey names many of the people who were clients, including quite a few who were present at her arrest. I wondered why they let her off so easy, I'd say there was someone working behind the scene to make sure this didn't go to court with her telling all about how she was set up by Palin in front of a judge. When Shailey moved to Anchorage and in with a man she had been seeing, she tried to leave this life behind but Todd was obviously keeping tabs on her as she realized when she ran into him two months later. He knew where she lived, what she did, where she went and was obsessed with getting her back into the life of prostitution in order to boost his own income.

    (Part 2 of 2)

    Shailey also provides further proof that Sarah was not pregnant at any time in 2008 and stupid Sarah never able to keep her mouth shut mentioned that "her masseuse" started the rumors about her not being pregnant, admitted to having been seen by Shailey.If there's any doubt as to how the name Tripp came to be, I think Levi may have suggested it as he ran into Todd sneaking out of the spa via the back door and had an argument out in the parking lot in the summer of '07. Every time Sarah hears the name Tripp, what does she think? What does Bristol think, knowing her son's name was influenced by the last name of a mother of two disabled children that her father abused sexually and profited from by peddling her services to others? What a sick and disturbed family the Palins' are!This book answered quite a few questions for me and proves we dodged quite a bullet when McCain/Palin were defeated in '08. I also think that if nothing else has, it guarantees there will be no future political positions for Sarah unless she were to divorce Todd. However, he knows where all her skeletons are buried, so that's not likely to happen. The biggest question is did Sarah know just how Todd made all that extra money they had on a regular basis? Her silence tells me she did and she's not going to say a word about it now. She's hoping this will go away but it's time for all of us to make sure the media doesn't overlook this completely as they have everything else about this crazy family.

      Sarah is getting. the freeze-out treatment presently, and if she doesn't cool her jets, it is to her own further peril. It's amazing to see just how much opportunity she has pissed away in the past three years, as those around her have recognized the level of her to toxicity.

    Well, LOD must be feeling as good as Nate Silver the morning after the President won re-election. I can recall his steadfast position she wouldn't run and now that she's been dumped by Fox she'll be looking for chances to keep her name in the news. I did note HPost seems to be offering up a new Sara story every day in an effort to squeeze every last click out of her before her star fades completely. She's done. Oh sure, she'll still garner a headline or two, mostly from something outrageous she or one of her kids says or does but for the most part she's gone. Without the hush money still going out perhaps someone will finally step forward and being outing her misdeeds. The pregnancy scam would be the best but from the sounds of it my money is on Dairy Gate. I haven't been to ADN but did the cover Sara being dumped by Fox? Or did they parrot the line about her turning them down?

  7. Anonymous7:01 AM

    Is there any truth to Sarah's most recent word salad?
    Will she appear on CNN??

    “That means broadening our audience,” she acknowledges. “I’m taking my own advice here as I free up opportunities to share more broadly the message of the beauty of freedom and the imperative of defending our republic and restoring this most exceptional nation. We can't just preach to the choir; the message of liberty and true hope must be understood by a larger audience.“

    From CNN on yesterday's show:
    BLITZER: One final question before I let you go, Senator -- Sarah Palin, she and FOX have terminated their exclusive arrangement. I'm not sure what she's going to be doing next. Do you have any clue if she wants to get back into politics, stay a pundit? What she wants to do next?

    MCCAIN: I know from all my travels that Sarah still has a very sizable following in America. And I'm proud of the work she has -- continues to do, and I'm not sure exactly what her plans are. But I'm sure she will be a major factor in American political scene, and I'm still and always proud of her.

    BLITZER: Senator, thanks so much for coming in. We've invited, by the way, Sarah Palin to be a guest here on the show now that she's no longer -- has an exclusive arrangement with FOX and hopefully she'll say yes and we'd love to have her on the show if she wants to do that.

    MCCAIN: I'm sure she will, like me, look eagerly at the opportunity of chatting with you.

    BLITZER: I'm not so sure about that. But you're always very generous in your time. Let's see if Sarah Palin wants to be as generous.

      Nothing's free when it involves the Granny Grifter, Wolfie. So pony up the cash, and she'll gladly make a fool of herself, if youre willing to send her the questions in advance. But you have to sneak in those follow up questions following her answers, and then watch/listen as she starts to stumble and repeat herself and go into the salad-shooter routine. It's worth the price every now and then. Yeah, she'll get pissed, but that only adds to the show. And if you pretend that you're just being polite but thorough, her friggin head might explode.

    8. I'm sure part of the reason the McCain/Blitzer interview turned to "what will Sarah do now?" is because Erick Erickson's contract apparently ended with CNN, and he's been hired by Fox.

      (also James Carville and Mary Matalin's contracts weren't renewed by CNN, but that's beside the point)

      Normally there are clauses in contracts with big companies that you cannot go to the competition for a specific period of time. Would suspect FOX did the same thing even though they knocked her to the ground thinking no one else would want her. Cannot imagine any of them wanting her. She's such an idiot and fraud!

    Yes, Lawrence knew and I just wish that he had been influential enough to get everyone's attention, like his buddy down the hall, Chris Matthews. Listened to Chris yesterday and in his discussion of Sarah, he's still hypotized by her con. Even though they know the Republican Party is reinventing itself in a more likable way by getting rid of divisive players, Chris still leaves his audience thinking Sarah is still in control of her destiny; either he, Chris, or some other MSNBC person pointed out that she could work for CNN.

    I've got a prediction, or more correctly, a couple of predictions concerning Sarah Palin:

    1) She will soon do something to put herself back in the spotlight. (On purpose, I mean)

    2) It will fail miserably and she'll be a laughingstock. Again. Or still. whatever - Punchline Palin.

      Randall, I love "Punchline Plain." That's exactly what she and her entire family have become.

      How many of us real (as opposed to "rill") Americans can see a headline about her or hear her grating voice and not roll our eyes, shake our heads and then roll on the floor laughing when we remember that she'll never win a national election. Wingnuts on other sites are still saying how the "libruls" are still scared of old PP (Punchline Palin). I have to confess, there were times when I WAS scared. Mostly I was terrified that one day I would roll my eyes so far back in my head at something she said that I'd end up in the emergency room.

    Wait for her to do something before you sling arrows at her again. Don't let her use her victim hood to her advantage. Every time she pokes her head up, hit her with the mallet. But otherwise, once the euphoria of her getting shit-canned wears off, let her be. If she tries to to something impactful, then come out with the big guns and expose her. There is Palin fatigue among those that don't care about her right now, and they don't want to hear anything -good or bad- about Sarah. Let's not make her a sympathetic figure. I'm thinking about a couple of weeks from now, once this news event subsides.

    In other words, let Sarah create the news event. She will fail, THEN kick her. She's predictable, and won't make us wait long for new material.

  24. Anonymous8:50 AM

    I too believe she knew she would never be president. But, just think for a moment what kind of person she really is by waiting for the last moment to inform everyone, especially her fans who donate to SarahPAC, that she wouldn't be running for President on Oct. 5, 2010. She (SarahPAC) even sent out a letter 2 weeks before the announcement requesting that they send in a one time, largest donation they could afford to SarahPAC to help her decide to run for President.

    We've all talked about what a grifter she was, but many people seemed to have forgotten about the details of her announcement. Also, shortly after she resigned she had quite a few speeches lined up for primarily to raise money for the Republican Party. She cancelled so many of those at the last minute and without confirming before hand if she would even be their or not, that her spoke person, Meg Stapleton, had to have been embarrassed.

    I'm frequently amazed by the true ignorance and blindness of her fans, but I also feel a little sad for them for putting their blind faith into Palin. I assume most of these people are either retired, or in the lower middle income bracket from what I've seen by going through the donation list to SarahPAC's filings to the FEC.

    For those who finally realize they were taken by this sick anorexic women, they may have their religious faith shaken to the bones and will never again trust another politician. Although most of her fans are older, they are also strong believers in the 2nd Amendment, distrust government, and believe our country is coming to an end if we don't quickly do something about it before Obama turns us into a communist country. Mix those beliefs with anger, a little delusional thinking, and we may have a shooting in a courthouse because of the "activist judges", at the police, or aimed towards the media. It seems extreme, but go over to Conservative4Palin (Sea4Pee) and read what these people are writing. Or, who knows, maybe I've been reading too many of these comments from the old white farts, and instead they will just slowly die off taking their anger and distrust of the government with them

      I was just at the Sea for my daily dose of hilarity. Here's a comment from one of the regulars, who was answering a question on about Hillary C's new PAC(!!):

      "SarahPAC is for the support of other candidates. If Sarah ran, the only money it could put into her campaign would be the same as it is allowed for all other candidates ($5,000). Currently, it can use the money to pay for her consultants and travel and other administrative stuff."

      IMO, half of the inane "barbarians" at the Palin Playpen are paid socks or family members trying to entice the few, true cultists to donate, donate, donate to SarahATM. I think some are playing up their freedom lovin', Latin-esque gibberish to the max and getting paid somewhat well to do so. I'm sure they'll go into overdrive now that the Kraken has been released, and they're pushing the 2016 meme ("I donated to SarahPAC this week!!!!" "So did I!!!" "Hey, I will too!!

    If Todd made Sarah disappear he would get the two houses in the Wasilla compound, cabin and the Arizona compound along with her life insurance plus property and businesses we don't know about.

    If I were Sarah, I would sleep with my one good eye open.

    Accidents do seem to happen in Wasilla.

      With Sarah missing, Todd would be free to ask Shailey Tripp to marry him.

      Sarah isn't bringing in any money like the good old scamming days.

      What good is Sarah to Todd?
      Anorexic Sarah is fucking useless to Todd now.

    The 'Ends' of Sarah Palin

    ...It might be true, but there have been so many "ends of Sarah Palin" that it's almost too hard to keep track of them all. She was over when she lost the 2008 campaign, she was over when she quit the Alaska governorship, she was over when she decided to do a reality show, she was over when she decided not to run for president, and now again, she's over because her appearances on Fox News are over.

    I, for one, did think Palin would lose her relevancy when she quit the Alaska governorship, and also when she didn't run for president. But in both cases, people who both love her and hate her just couldn't get enough information about her, and she still got an incredible amount of news coverage. Her voice was heard loud and clear, even if it blasted only from her Facebook posts. That's just another example of what she's been able to pull off that others who've come before or after just haven't. Palin's been written off from Day One, but like a boomerang, she just keeps coming back.

      I really hate this but it's true, and it's why we still need Gryph et al. Vigilance. Or like I said before, we end up like Ripley with the alien in the module.

    2. Anonymous12:45 PM

      Yeah, just like genital warts, she keeps coming back. It will take a scandal of enormous proportion to shut her up and keep her off the air for good. Any ideas? There is SO much material. Time for a GREAT tell- all book by some important and respected (preferably republican) author/journalist... or Sen. John McCain.

    3. Anonymous1:58 PM

      And sometimes even scandals don't silence...plenty of examples both past and present to evidence that.

      I truly believe that we have not seen or heard the last of her because, as many have pointed out previously, she's a narcissist and a grifter.

      My hope is that now that shes no longer politically relevant that perhaps folks in the know with important and damaging info, particularly about the fake pregnancy, will come forward with verifiable evidence. I'm looking forward to that day. And as someone else mentioned, all the other unresolved "gates".


    4. Anonymous2:39 PM

      Yes, but she has burned a lot of bridges now. Her reality show flopped -was not renewed - her daughter's reality show was canned, only one book of Palin's sold and that was because people had not seen much of her in 2008-9 and she was a curiosity. She has done absolutely nothing to better herself or her family. The name Palin is pretty much a national joke.

    I wonder if she'll give up her SarahPAC. She should have to. It's simply been a means of fleecing not very bright people from money they could use for groceries or for medical insurance. Also, too, will Fox News come and dismantle her in-house studio?

    1. Anonymous3:04 PM

      I mentioned this, asking Malia at her blog about it. It was a few days before the FOX 'divorce' and there had been a posting at C4P by someone who had seen Tim Crawford, of SarahPAC, lecture. Crawford had been very clear that Sarah had never intended to run for President. I asked Malia if this was actionable.

      I wish I could find what she said, but basically it has to do with how the SarahPAC initial documents were worded. That's the thing about PAC's; thanks to Citizen's United, as I understand, you can raise buckets of money if folks are will to give it to you. And you don't have to use for much more than raising more money, and donating a small bit to candidates.

      It's infuriating but legal!

    It just gets better and better. Here's what's up on the Daily Beast site now:

    11. Australian ‘First Bloke’ in Hot Water
    And you thought “first dude” Todd Palin was bad. Tim Mathieson, the longtime partner of Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, has made a high-profile blunder: he joked that men getting their prostates checked should seek small, female Asian doctors to do the exam. Mathieson made the comments with Gillard right behind him, causing one witness to remark that the prime minister’s face “performed a remarkable transition—jolly, carefree smile to impenetrable stone on the turn of a phrase.” Gillard, Australia’s first female prime minister, made international headlines last month when she railed against institutional sexism and misogyny. Mathieson, who has been a government men’s-health ambassador, apologized for the comments, saying they were in “poor taste.”

    "And you thought first dude Todd Palin was bad" - hahahahaha!

  35. Anonymous2:22 PM

    Hope the Sarah Palin Curses infects Greta Van Susteren old ass, that fucking leach! Did Greta and her husband John Coale have an interest in seeing Sarah and SarahPAC succeed?

    "......Of course I knew that all of Palin’s last interviews on Fox had been with Greta Van Susteren. What I didn’t know is that Greta had a personal connection to Palin that was never disclosed in any of the many interviews.

    Greta married John Coale in 1988. Coale is a “self-described” ambulance chaser, and an “adviser” for Sarah Palin. Coale admits he was the person that helped Palin launch SarahPAC, and the legal defense fund for her PA. That means that Greta received financial benefit from the creation of the SarahPAC, and that while Greta was interviewing Sarah pretending to be a disinterested news reporter, Greta received financial benefit every time Sarah used PAC money to pay Coale for “advice.” Clearly, the more positive publicity Palin received on Fox, the more her supporters would donate to her PAC, and the more “advice” Palin might need."

    Boys Will Be Boys: Media, Morality, and the Coverup of the Todd Palin Shailey Tripp Sex Scandal (Volume 1) (Paperback)

    Explosive story about Todd Palin that needs media exposure
    Customer rating 5.0/5.0

    WOW! Shailey Tripp does an excellent job providing a detailed, horrifying look at the sex for hire political racket run by Todd Palin before, during, and after his wife was Governor of Alaska. Todd Palin apparently provided sexual services through Sahiley and many other men and women for his political and corporate cronies, even trafficking prostitutes across stare lines for the purpose of winning federal contacts and entertaining his friends.

    Todd Palin took advantage of Shailey, a single mom of two disabled kids, and lured her into a sordid world, while playing the "First Dude" of Alaska. Shailey's tale is riveting , heartbreaking , and finally redeeming....a must read!

  40. Anonymous3:52 PM

    Yes, vindication tastes great. But let's remember, some of our favorite Palin critics and book writers also pretended to take her political tease seriously almost until the end.. to sell books? to keep the object of their investment relevant? NO, Gryphen you did not do this, but some of your "friends" did. This caused fear for readers of various blogs It was un-necessary and dishonest. Hopefully some of us have sharpened our discerning skills after this whole Palin fiasco.

    1. Well seriously, how sharp did anyone have to be to see her for what she was? A couple of savvy Canadians leaped at the chance to have a little fun at American expense. Didn't take them too long to figure it out.

    Larry is a riot! Good for him, he deserves a victory lap, as Wigged Twiggy's gravy train goes off the bridge to nowhere. She stepped on a lot of feet on her race for easy money and fame. I wonder when the folks at Fox will start spilling the beans?

    When do the leaks start?!? Please, oh, please, oh, please, oh, please oh PLEASE!!!!!

    1. Anonymous8:41 PM

      According to Sarah, the leakage started in Texas and then she flew home and traveled many miles with a high risk unborn baby so the her DS baby will be born in her beloved state Alaska. What's confusing is Sarah later said something about not wanting to go back to Alaska.

      Some people think Sarah didn't want to go back to Alaska cuz her uneducated unemployable good for nothing kids and husband were in Alaska holding Sarah back from being somebody important like Ivanna Trump.

    Bristol do you have anymore reality shows planned to be filmed in Alaska?

    Your adoring fans would like to see what happens next for the Palins

    Does Tripp ever go to school

    Do you ever find happiness

    Does Levi leave Sunny for you his high school love

    Did Gino ever stop crying and find his way home

    What prisons does your parents resides in

    How the Palins managed to launder their ill gotten money

    Does Track ever get right

    Does Piper ever master 2nd grade math

    What happened to Willow's babies

    Does Ruffle ever meet his brother Trig

    If you ever crack under pressure and reveal that Trig is your son

    If you return the "TRIPP" license plate to the original owner Shailey

    If Sarah goes into a catatonic state when she is handcuffed

    Did the Palins ever find religion and go to church

    If Todd gets his ass beat from the fathers, brothers and uncles of the girls he turned into prostitutes

    So much to cover in your upcoming season. Oh don't forget to apply for your Alaska Film Tax Credit

      If I were Dr Cathy Baldwin-Johnson and did not do anything wrong and wanted to clear all doubts, I would get the Palins permission and have a press conference and explain how Sarah's flat baby bump was real and explain how there were two different sets of ears on one baby instead of hiding for the rest of my life.
