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."

    First point: These so called Republican that are trying to stop Palin could be part of the Romney team or other presidential hopefulls. Of course they would want Palin out of the way so there own candidate would have a easier race. It would be the same if Palin backers went to the media had said we need to stop Mitt Romney. Where is the story?

    Second point: Where is the story about Alaskan media looking for a "Rand Paul moment"? A local TV station in Alaska is caught conspiring against Joe Miller.

    I judge people what they say and do. Mrs. Palin your book was very poorly ghost written. Your speech's and interviews have not impressed at all.

    As a conservative I was hoping for something better.

    All I see is fluff!

    I find it funny how Palin says that Poltico's Mike Allen and JimVandeHei need to "man up' and debate the issue with her, But she goes around telling candidates like O'Donnell and Angle not to talk to the press on issues that matter to the American people.

Her and Limbaugh are Has benn's who want to be a want to.

    Finally, a subject with which Ms. Palin has more than passing familiarity.

    Sarah can dish out the hate and critics to others, but she sure cant take it when it comes back to her. Sure is funny that her own party dont want her to run. Whoops she is a member of the tea party racist gang . Hey people if Sarah got in the white house, the whole fox gang would be right in there with her. And also Tod would be there too, just like he was in Alaska.

    It takes a special kind of grit and thick skin to be able to daily brush off attacks from the media... I have to admit I would have buckled years ago. Is this woman really trying to run for president in 2012?

    Grit and spirit are good traits for a president but then again....

  12. Tired of the nonsense

    A moron like Palin on a tabloid show like FOX is calling someone else "jokes?"

    Every time that woman opens her mouth and speaks, she showcases her stupidity.

  13. Just great

    "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.

    This Wasilla Wacko Witch still cannot form a decent sentence in English. (She lives too close to Russia maybe?)

    I gotta admit this is a GREAT picture of the half-gov. And I'll go one better: from a stricitly non-partisan point of view: you gotta take your hat off to this woman. Talk about being around at the right place, at the right time. The dumbing down of America has been Sarah Palin's pot of gold. That Tea Party Express bus tour are her minions helping her carry her cash to the bank!
    You gotta love her. Never give a sucker an even break is Sarah's core belief, mantra, and national anthem.

    When will Sarah Palin "Man Up" to the fact that she is the poster child (and I do mean child) for the political devisiveness that permeates this country ? Never before has American politics witnessed such a gap between ego and intellect.

  20. sammieb51

    But to be fair, they are using facts to tear her apart. Her on the other hand, uses crappy untrue sound bites to tear down anyone who gets in her way. No wonder Todd doesn't talk ....

    We Americans are going to get what we deserve tomorrow. Plumbers and "Prefessional" wrestlers will running the government. Canidates who are concerned with the Constitution but actually don't know what it mandates and can't name a recent Supream Court decision. For the first time, voters will not vote for anyone experienced enough to do the job. The dumbing down of America is in full swing.

    You are the joke sarah... Ohh and "Man up"? I think you are the sexist now, and towards women at that. You are an incoherent scumbag that the world would be better without.

    The Republican leadership actually hopes to win in 2012, and they are beginning to understand that the two biggest disadvantages they face are the Tea Party and Sarah Palin.
