Sarah Palin on The View?

The only thing I can imagine that could possibly be more irritating than watching The View (which I don’t do) is watching The View with Sarah Palin on it. But she’s publicly making it obvious that she would like to be one of the hosts.

The ABC show is undergoing an almost total overhaul, with every host but Whoopi Goldberg departing. That means that lots of replacements are needed.

Enter Palin. Asked by the Hollywood Reporter if she had any interest in doing a “political talk show,” she replied, “I hear everyone recently got canned from ‘The View,’ maybe a show like that needs a punch of reality and a voice of reason from America’s heartland to knock some humble sense into their scripts. You know, someone willing to go rogue.”

Sarah Palin thinks she’s a “voice of reason.” That joke is its own punchline. The only reason to watch this would be that I think there’s a better-than-even chance that Whoopi Goldberg might actually come across the table and choke Palin on live television.

  • Goldberg: “So, Sarah, how are you today?”

    Palin: “Um, good, bad, all of them? I REFUSE TO ANSWER YOUR LIBERAL GOCHYA QUESTIONS!”

  • StevoR : Free West Papua, free Tibet, let the Chagossians return!

    The prospect s Palin on me already I only just heard the idea and never watch the show.

    Didn’t she jump the shark in, well ’bout 2008?

  • Rosie O’Donnell is coming back to the show, so hiring Palin at the same time would be interesting.

  • I like John Cleese’s comment: “Michael is no longer the funniest Palin”

  • Attila

    Whoopi Goldberg chokes Sarah Palin live on TV. I smell a Pay Per View.

  • Sarah Palin and The View. I’m hard-pressed to think of two thinks I care even less about.

    Though Whoopi Goldberg choking Palin would make it worth watching for the first time ever.

    …I think there’s a better-than-even chance that Whoopi Goldberg might actually come across the table and choke Palin on live television.

    1. Not going to work. Palin would drive the average IQ of The View below zero.

    2. Palin set up her own TV channel for Cthulhu’s sake. The hunting channel or some such. Sort of Duck Commanders 24/7 without their wit and intelligence.

    Doesn’t look like it “worked” i.e. made her much money though.

    Palin is pretty dumb but Shepard and McCarthy may be even dumber.

  • goldenhare

    Like fingernails on a chalkboard. It makes my teeth hurt just thinking about it. Shudder…..

  • It’s a Buyer’s Market. Surely they can get a cheaper moron.

  • Trebuchet

    Even with Palin and Rosie O’Donnell, they’ll have a hard time surpassing the combined stupid of Sherri “Flat-Earth” Shepherd and Elizabeth Hasselbeck.

  • lldayo

    Ed, I smell tons of blogger fodder with Palin having a regular outlet to share her dimwit. We should start a push for ABC to hire her immediately as well as Pam Anderson (PETA spokesperson), Rosie O’Donnell (lesbian) and Courtney Love (if you’re gonna have a trainwreck you may as well get someone with experience).

  • Alaska is America’s heartland?

  • This is what Palin is reduced to. Does she realize how pathetic it makes her look? (Answer: no. But you knew that.)

  • Canadian Yankee

    Isn’t that show taped, like, every single day of the week? Could we ever imagine Palin working that hard?

  • Yeah, why risk hiring someone who might jump ship half a season in because it’s too much work?

  • lakitha tolbert

    Normally I would ask you to please not contribute to the stereotype of The Angry Black Woman but the image of Whoopi choking out Palin is so compelling…that’s it! I can’t even…

  • busterggi

    Well I did tell folks it could get worse when those last two left the show.

  • Joe Mama

    Palin’s a media whore. She’s been one since 2008. You’d think by now she’d get the message that nobody gives a crap about her, but she’s apparently not that bright. I mean, she had her little reality show which lasted for one season, then she was a Faux News propagandist “contributor,” and that lasted maybe a year before she got canned. Sarah Palin is just ratings kryptonite, except maybe for Tina Fey making fun of her on SNL.

  • Mr Ed

    There is a position that she is much better suited for, a long running, once a week anchor which requires minimal effort, SNL. NBC could bring in a new demographic to the show.

  • colnago80

    It appears that one of the replacement candidates is Meghan McCain.

  • John Pieret

    No, it wouldn’t be Whoopi choking Palin … Rosie would be a more likely candidate for that. Whoopi would be flinging verbal barbs that went right over Palin’s head and her reactions to Palin’s cluelessness would be priceless. Not worth watching the whole show, but the clips on YouTube would be great.

  • dingojack

    Maybe god called her to The View, just like he did to the vice-presidency* — and see what a bang-up success she was in the latter position!!

    God looks after his own.



    * or was that John McCain, they sound so much alike….
