Sarah Palin: People might be afraid to ‘start a business’ because Martin Bashir attacked me

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by muriel_volestrangler (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on Thursday responded to Martin Bashir’s resignation from MSNBC by saying that she was used to being the victim of liberals, but she hoped that the former host’s attack did not stop other people from starting businesses.

On Wednesday, Bashir had announced that he was resigning from MSNBC after suggesting that Palin deserved to eat human feces the way that slaves were once forced to for her remarks comparing the federal debt to slavery.

“My role is to accept his apology and be humble enough and to, you know, accept it and move on,” Palin told the hosts of Fox & Friends on Thursday. “But I just hope that unprovoked attacks like that don’t result in people being hesitant to jump in the arena anyway, to get out there and serve the public or start a business or really commit themselves to changing within their family, their community, their world, doing whatever they can despite the fact that, in this world, you are going to be hurt and attacks will come your way.”

“I just hope that an attack like that doesn’t make people hesitate.”

And is being a pundit a "business?"

Yes, I know. Useless to try to understand what she means.

5. Personally, it's my fear

of giant crustaceans arising from the seas and ravaging human civilization that keeps me from starting a business.

Now that I think about it, that's actually a more realistic fear than Palin outlined.

jogging, eating cake, going vegan, carving pumpkins, jumping on trampolines, defrosting frozen meat or any other arbitrary act by human beings on the planet.

9. maybe we should bide our time

and wait for the right Palin outrage and campaign Fox to fire her.

She is getting other people fired and her karma will run out. I'm not defending Bashir as I think his remarks went too far. Regardless of what Palin does you shouldn't try to outdo her in the insensitive category. Yeah… she is very annoying and it can be extremely tempting to stoop to her level.

I have noticed her tactic is to dance on the edge of what is not proper and then slither back. Her claim is that she is taken out of context. She knew what she was doing with her slavery remark was inflammatory, especially in the context of the first African American President.

I say play it straight and start shrinking her microphones. Get her off the air. Go after the sponsors. We did it with Rush. Sponsors are not soo keen on people dropping them.

Let's keep track of the sponsors on the shows that Palin appears on.

24. Well Martin was wrong. He shouldn't have suggested that someone should show her what

occurred to real people held in slavery.

What he should have done is- concluded aloud aloud that Sarah must speak from experience since whenever she speaks, nothing but shit spews out.

He would have gotten away with it then. "Hey, I just asked a question?"
