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 see. It is ok for FOX to make up "crap" about President Obama, it's ok for Ms. Palin to make up "crap" about President Obama, it's okay for Rush, Shanity & Beck to make up "crap" about President Obama AND it's ok for HER to make up "crap" about President Obama. Really? Ms. Palin if you can't take the heat get out of the kitchen. You have no business "playing" in politics. This is the reall world honey not the bubble you lived in in Alaska.

    "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"

    LOL She can debate them? How? Via Twitter? Facebook?

    Sarah Palin will ride the gravy train all the way to the fall of 2012 by continuing the "maybe I will", "maybe I won't" meme. If she admits she wants to make more money by NOT running, she'll lose the spotlight. If she says will WILL run, people will continue to ask her questions she refuses to answer. It's all about the cold hard cash to the Palins. Like she says on her new reality show "I'd rather be out here than in a stuffy old political office".

    Hey America – When someone tells you who they are, believe them!

    Since crap is all that comes out of her mouth she should be an expert (at least at something).

    To everyone sick of hearing about what Ms. Palin is doing this week, just keep repeating to yourself:
    Maybe if we ignore her, then she'll go away. Maybe if we ignore her, then she'll go away.
    Pay her no mind, give her no airtime, and soon enough she'll be missing that "lame-stream" (read: any outlet who doesn't carry her message) exposure that she hates so much. Limit her appearances to Faux News and Faux News alone and in another couple years we can all scratch our heads and say, "who is this crazy lady" again.

    Ellie Mae Palin has the nerve to talk about making things up! LOL The whole idea of her discussing anything is a joke. She
    hides behind her tweets and facebook comments every single day. She doesn't have the brains or the "cojones" to debate
    anybody. This crap of telling people to "man up" should have been said to her own son. Why isn't she telling the truth about the fact that a judge offered him Jail or the Military? If she had half of the nerve to tell the truth about the things she says the public would know what a "Fraud" she is. She amazes me with the way she is always calling out somebody that does not agree with her. Which by the way is 70% of the country at large. She is an embarrassment to every woman in the lower 48. GO BACK TO ALASKA, SARA!!! Don't worry about taking our country back, just go back where you came from!!

    She actually sounds like her feelings are hurt, because she knows it's true. Rove has all but said the same things and I don't hear her calling him out.

    "anonymous Republican sources" brought down Nixon and his administration illegal practices so it's not necessarily crap.

    That's OK Sarah. Tomorrow will show who the leader is. Obviously, she is shaking up the good ole boy network that is DC. The good ole boys don't like that. She threatens their way of no work and lots of pay.

    if there is one thing about Sarah Palin that is very consistant is that she can NOT stand anyone to be critical of or disagree with her. If you are it of course is NEVER her fault, you are always wrong and a product of the "lame-stream or evil left wing media" as she likes to call it. So this being the case just how does she expect to run for president? The office of POTUS is where you are going to be hit from the right and the left because everyone is NOT going to be happy with your decisions. The right wing and FoxNews were very big along with the Tea Party in bringing Obama's numbers down to earth because their followers preferred to listen to them instead of getting the facts for themselves. So is Sarah only going to talk to FoxNews if she decides to run? And in a primary where she is running against other GOP hopefuls how will she handle it when they disagree with her as well? I'm sure Karl Rove is on the "Pooh-pooh" list right now and Mike Steele is playing kiss up.

    well she fails already by making statements about it, if she really wanted to just "ignore" it then she wouldn't be saying anything at all

    The biggest joke is someone who needs flashcards to remember the names of Heads of State and other related foreign policy matters…or are the biggest jokes those who ‘restore freedom’ by standing behind her?
    God Bless Tea Party UuuhmuuriKKKa.

    There it is agin, media making up news, not reporting on it.

    They need to stop with the anonymous sources already.

    They are cowards hiding in the shadows.

    You don't get rating, you get peoples disgust.

    so we should add Politico to list of publications she doesn't read?

    I agree with Sarah. Everyone who thinks there should be minimal standards of intelligence, decency, and character should just keep quiet! Sarah would make a delightful republican president of the United States in 2012.

    "Run, Sarah, Run!"

    NO CNN....this woman is the 'crap'. she is the most evil, hateful, ignorant sounding woman i have ever heard. she has dumbed-down america in ways that can not be fixed for many years to come. she hates barack obama for taking away her right to the white house. she has never stopped campagining since the election ended. she is so high on her ignorant self that she truly believes she should be the leader of this free world. i pray this blite called palin on america will soon fade away and normal people can work together to fix the problems in america that our president has started without the help of one republican. we must work together or we will fall together.

    Look at the background of 10 women presidents around the World and their husbands and then take a good look at Palin's and her husband. It's clear that water seeks it's own level and the U.S. can't go that low resulting in being the laughing stock of the World.

    Sarah Palin is no joke, she's just a punch line, looking for a joke. She needs to go away, very far away.

    She's no fan of anyone in the Media... unless it's good like will be a great president, and you guys following her ghost written FB posting w/o interviews. She's a prefect example of the "Rent is too" darn HIGH! She is a high pay street woman and that's being nice. Didn't she know her 15 minutes was wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy up a long time ago. She's mean, divisive and very hateful to the president – all because she didn't win and won't in our lifetime. She needs to go away and take care of that dyfunctional family... She has a very nasty mouth to be a so call christian.....

    I betcha if they would have said she is very much smart and presidental she wouldn't be slinging dirt as her legend will be in history.

    Palin is the gift that never, ever stops giving. Had a great laugh when they quoted Palin as saying, "If they would man up and if they would, you know, make these claims against me then I can debate them...." Really sister Palin ? Palin won't debate anyone! Why do you think she only appears on "Faux News". Oh. Besides getting paid by them. Here's an idea for "Faux News". Why not have a " Rove vs Palin " discussion on say...The state of the Republican party ? Thoughts on issues ? Ideas on solving any of the major issues facing all americans today ? Sounds pretty good to me but....somehow I don't sister sarah will not discuss, debate or jsut plain old talk to anyone who has a different opinion then hers or worst yet. She will not debate any of her "tweets" with anyone. Tweets. A national republican who only tweets and appears on "Faux News". Ya gotta luv the american political system.
