Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin praised all the participants in the third Republican presidential debate Wednesday in Colorado but singled out Texas Sen. Ted Cruz on Newsmax TV because "he schooled the media."
"That's what the American people are craving — for our leaders who are already in these positions of authority to tell the media to start getting focused on the things that concern us," the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate told host Steve Malzberg on the "Newsmax TV Post-Debate Special."
There needs to be a focus on "the things that really make a difference in a presidential campaign because the state of the media … has been so poor and so unfair," Palin continued. "We have seen such a downfall of what the media has become [so] when Ted Cruz spanked them — they deserved to be spanked — he put them in order.
"It seemed like they kind of behaved a little bit better after that," Palin said.
Palin called Cruz, Donald Trump and Ben Carson the debate's winners, adding that some candidates should drop out of the race.
However, she declined to be more specific, saying only that some should quit because "they are wasting ammunition on one another."
I have to admit that I did not watch all of this YouTube video. And I really do not think it is necessary for anybody else to do so either.
You can literally start it anywhere, the beginning, the middle, or near the end and quickly realize that it is the same old shit, muttered by the same old lunatic, in a slightly different format.
There are a couple of interesting points such as when she begs of criticizing Marco Rubio missing Senate votes in light of the fact that she resigned partway through her first term.
The entire piece is incredibly unprofessional and of course Palin is participating from that studio Fox built for her in Wasilla, so there is a long delay.
For all intents and purposes this feels like the cable news equivalent of Sarah Palin showing up for the opening of a pet store, or hawking crappy jewelry on late night TV. Essentially this is the bottom of the barrel that we all predicted she would be scraping many years ago.
She is much too unlikable to feel sorry for, but there is a sense dissatisfaction that her career is ending in such a pedestrian manner instead of with the huge scandal I think all of us had hoped for.
There are still some things that I hope to bring to light, but I am not sure that too many people actually care enough to even listen.
