Palin: Politico report is 'crap'

(CNN) - Sarah Palin is making clear she's no fan of Politico – the news organization that published a story Sunday night quoting anonymous Republican sources saying GOP leaders will try to forestall a Palin White House bid.

"Politico, Mike Allen and Jim VandeHei, they're jokes," Palin told Fox News on Sunday night, referring to the writers of the story. "This is a joke to have unnamed sources tearing somebody apart limb by limb."

"If they would man up and if they would, you know, make these claims against me then I can debate them, I can talk about it, but to me they're making stuff up again," the former Alaska governor continued.

The comments came shortly after the website published a story by Allen and VandeHei that claimed establishment Republicans are deeply fretting the possibility of a Palin presidential campaign and will work behind the scenes to ensure it does not occur.

"I don't think the paper that we just printed this article on, you know, it's not worth even wrapping my King Salmon in," Palin also said of Politco. "I'll just ignore this crap."

    I think you can use her argument against those paying for anonymous ads to attack politicians. Palin is angry that she's the subject of the attack; yet she sees no problem with corporations paying for secret ads to attack Democrats without having to disclose who they are.

    What's with Palin's obsession with "man up"? Does she suffer from that ol' Freudian envy thing, or is Todd failing in the bedroom department?

    Just saying ...

    Sarah is an expert on crap, because lying and divisiveness are her mantra.

    "I'll just ignore this crap."

    The grizzly sow stated AFTER a 10 minute diatribe of NOT "ignoring this crap"!

    And this chick's obession with male testes, gives "penis envy" a whole new definition!

    God will this delusional woman ever shut UP??? Of course they don't want her to run, most of the country hates her, she just doesn't get it.

    "If they would man up and if they would, you know, make these claims against me then I can debate them"

    Debate them! Ha Ha Ha debating anything smarter than carrot would be a challenge for Sarah.

    Sarah Palin is fast approaching major melt down mode. No wonder she quit being Governor of Alaska. Two years is about all she can handle before the pressure consumes her. Oh, well, Sarah. Better luck next time . . .

    If past is prologue, a President Palin would spend most her time sniping back at critics who snipe at her. A bigger, more secure perosn would let all this go and shurg it off but Palin always has to run to get involved in these petty personal scraps. Someone who can't help behaving this way isn't of presidential caliber.

    She is as uncouth as they come. She would make a great president of the local chapter of nobody's.

    Hey Sarah, why won't you agree to be interviewed by anyone other than the softball tossers at FOX PAC?
    Come on now, Man up!

    So, if you don't agree with the organization than its crap? This is not the first report. Look at the headline from RNC Chair Steele.

    I don't know about the rest of you, but Palin to me is rather a joke. That is not to attack everything she says she believes in, but is to say that I don't believe I have ever seen as phony a person in my life. I say this having never met the woman, nor do I wish to. Her speeches and past performance in political office all speak for themselves. To quote Rowan Atkinson, I believe she's the type of person that people emigrate to avoid.

    she's so eloquent with her words! Palin is the joke, and will continue to be for some time! she needs to woman up and admit she is a joke.

    Obviously it's not crap, otherwise Caribou Barbie wouldn't dignify it with a response. You know something is either accurate or near accurate with that woman when she has to speak out on it. That should tell you something, America. If it's false, she ignores it. If it's true, she lashes out at the media.
