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."

    Sarah Palin doesn't like when unidentified entities spend millions of dollars on slanderous political campaigns? What a joke she is. Guess she doesn't like republicans and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce then.

    For someone who claims to want to protect the constitution, she sure gets bent out shape when anyone exercises their constitutional right to free speech if she doesn't agree with it. The First Ammendment was put into place because of people like YOU, Sarah. Because the American people needed protection from the lies and oppression and twisted "information" from people like YOU.

    "I'll just ignore this crap."

    Actually Sarah, simply by making that statement you're explicitly addressing this crap. Did you not learn that in your Alaskan home schooling?

    you know something Palin...I am getting really sick of your "man up" challenges. I am also getting sick of your mouth, your mug, and your self serving and self promoting garbage. Just as we dont get the option of "ignoring" dont get the option of "ignoring" us.
    We will see you in 2012. Where we THE PEOPLE intend to send your flapping yap right back to Alaska.

    Yes, because it's only those damn dirty liberals that use, unnamed sources. But it was totally legit when the Bush administration outed Valerie Plame through unnamed sources.

    Hey, look. The democraps are trying to distract the voters again. What a shock. To say that Palin hasn't taken real criticism from the press is laughable. Try some real reporting Politico. I am not a reporter, but I could have submitted a similar article targeting some liberal with the the same evidence you had in that article, and I don't know anyone in politics. Get real please. As Sarah says, you truely are the "Lame Stream Media".

    SARAN PALIN I will MAN – UP and tell you are not QUALIFIED to run for President or any other PUBLIC OFFICE. YOU are the most RACIST, hateful and Vindictive person I ever heard. PLUS either the PEOPLE OF ALASKA were going too kick you out of BEING GOV or you QUIT. And no body like a QUITTER. Want I been reading the PEOPLE of ALASKA would like you to move so that don't say much for you. I want some one to make AMERICAN better,not spread hate and make AMERICAN worst. You will never get my vote for any thing. USE too be a REPUBLICAN until you show up ,now I a Independent voter.

    Can one imagine Palin as the President of the United States and she has to deal with the high ups of all kinds of countries as well as our Senate, Congress etc and she talks like that. In private, it may be okay, but certainly not the best thing to do in public. Most people know where her brains are! and she verifies it with each statement she makes. Well, all I can say is: quitter, quitter, who didn't have the "guts" to stick out her commitment to the people of Alaska. She continues to dig her political grave with her antics appealing to the baser functions of mankind. Boy, is she tough!!. She doesn't even know how to handle the makers-and-shakers in politics in her own party. She keeps going over the top...We could laugh at her if people in her own party didn't take this money grabber seriously. When will they wake up????

    Take some of your own medicine Palin,.. it is you who is full of" crap",... foaming at the mouth and baring your fangs all over the map, like a bitch in heat. If you can't take the heat,.. get out of the kitchen,... oh wait a minute,... you already did that in Alaska.

    LMAO, Palin just drives the MSM nuts. CBS affliate gets caught trying to craete a false story on Miller, then ABC gets caught bradcasting a lie about the NRC funding Miller. All in the same day, just because Palin supports him and they want Murkowski to win, thinking that this would, in their words, "embarress" her. They are grasping at straws because the election is about to prove that the people are rejecting their boy Obama's extreme left wing agenda.
