Today, I’m in a remote area in Alaska (in Illiamna in Bristol Bay) and heading back in Todd’s float plane to do an interview for Hannity’s show on Fox in a few hours from our house.
So of course the Sea O'Pee'ers damn near wet themselves with anticipation.
However Hannity came on and immediately started to talk about the Zimmerman trial, in the first segment usually reserved for the Princess of Poison Punditry. And by the end of the show it was pretty clear that she was not making an appearance.
Which was kind of odd considering the fact that Hannity had a segment on his show called "Is the Left Demonizing the Tea Party?" A segment that literally cried out for the nonsensical word salad of the Tundra twit.
This of course did not escape the notice of the barely coherent Palin-bots who were shocked from their usual stupor to do a thing we call "ask questions.
"We are just as disappointed as you all are that Governor Palin’s segment was not on. Her Facebook post technically does not suggest it would have been aired tonight, but I do believe two very reliable folks who say they heard Sean advertise it today on his radio show.
Whatever the case is, hopefully they will run it soon and once again I have no idea why FOX tonight is spending all this time talking about Zimmerman after one of the biggest legislative follies in history came out of the Senate today.
Some are already claiming that the segment will air on different days, yet we cannot confirm through Governor Palin or FOX, so we’ll await confirmation.
Michele Malkin's insane Twitter focused blog Twitchy gathered a number of angry Palin-bot Tweets demanding to know where Sarah Palin was and accusing Hannity of being liar and tool of the GOP. (Right on both counts!)
Later this was posted on Twitchy:
You do not want to make Sarah Palin angry, and while you’re at it, you shouldn’t make Sarah Palin fans angry either. Palin was to have returned to Fox News tonight with an appearance on Sean Hannity’s show, but her segment was reportedly postponed after being hyped by the network. While viewers did get to see the same footage of the George Zimmerman trial we’ve seen all day long, most would have preferred Palin to “star witness” Rachel Jeantel.
Now I have no reason to place any faith in the accuracy of the "reporting" from Twitchy as it links to a Palin propaganda site for its explanation. And it seems to me that Hannity's show had plenty of room for Palin's interview as proven by that liberals vs teabagger segment I cited earlier.
So, what happened? If it was just a logistical problem with Palin not making it back home in time, you would think THAT would be offered as the simple explanation. Because I have to tell you IF Palin traveled all the way from Bristol Bay just to film this interview with Hannity, and then got bumped, well that goes to show a dismissive attitude toward the Wasilla Wendigo that will certainly not sit well with her fans, OR with the Grizzled Mama herself.
