Why Sarah Palin would never join The View …


Someone has suggested that Sarah Palin may, after assessing the ruin of her political career, consider joining The View, if asked. While the idea is plausible in the abstract, it is highly implausible in reality. Looking for a job outside elective politics makes sense. Jumping butt naked into a cactus pit doesn’t.

The quickest and most efficient way to de-fang Sarah Palin - From left - Whoopi Goldberg, Joyce Behar, Sherri Shepherd, Barbara Walters, and the runt of the litter, Elizabeth Hasselback.

What are Sarah’s options? Well, getting her own talk show  probably makes the most sense ( see this cyberaxis post). It’s the no-brainer answer to the question:  What you do with a  wise-crackin’, moose shootin’ , easy flirtin’ hockey mom from Wasilla after she makes an ill-fated  media splash  in a bruising national election?”.  Joining women of “The View”  is not out of the question as long as she decides to make nice  with Whoopi, Joyce, Barbara and Sherri ….. on top of avoiding Charlie Gibson/ Katie Couric moments.

Otherwise,  Mrs. Palin would be eaten alive on the snack meal plan. Elizabeth Hasselback knows the feeling.

My feeling is that, if Palin ever joined the view, she would pipe way down and laugh off most of the things she said on the campaign trail. If she did that she could actually bring a lot to the show.

Taking on the formidable trio of Whoopi, Joyce and Barbara would be the quickest way to lose her bouffant. Talk about being outclassed, out-smarted and out-GUNNED?  Well, she would be. Between the three of them Sarah Palin would just be a piece of luncheon meat on toasted sourdough bread.

Which brings to mind a Time Magazine piece by Belinda Luscombe which makes a debatable contention about “Why Some Women Hate Sarah Palin.” Luscombe thinks it goes beyond politics. Quote:

“Women are weapons-grade haters. Hillary Clinton knows it. Palin knows it too. When women get their hate on, they don’t just dislike, or find disfavor with, or sort of not really appreciate. They loathe — deeply, richly, sustainingly. I do not say this to disparage my gender; women also love in more or less the same way.” Belinda Luscombe, Time Magazine, Oct. 2, 2008

High school may be many miles away from The View, but who really knows? If Whoopi, Joyce or Barbara decided any or all of Luscombe’s three points of “the Abbotsleigh test” were adequate matters for casus belli, who could stop them ….. or blame them for that matter?
