6. Fox, Murdoch?
Since she is probably lower in the national polls than Cheney, why is she getting all this attention when she has zero chance of winning and probably won't even run?

Someone want's to get back all that attention she lost. And doesn't Murdoch pick Republican candidates now? Plus, all the money Freepers will send her.

But no one I know, including Republicans has any interest in this woman, Repubs especially are embarrassed by her. Someone is shoving her on the American people and Tweety wasted nearly 15 mins of airtime last night pretending she is a viable candidate for the WH.

8. So, here's a question ...
The bus says SarahPAC on it.
PACs are supposed to use their money to 'support politicians'.
If Palin is NOT running for office then money should not be spent on her.
If Palin IS running then she shouldn't be allowed to be a contributor on FoxNews since it would be 'free' airtime for her.

RIGHT?

9. PACs can use their money to support politicians.
Edited on Fri May-27-11 06:29 PM by former9thward
In fact that is their primary purpose. The PAC can spend money on her whether she is formally running or not. It is correct that if she formally decides to run (which I doubt) then Fox would have to get rid of her just like they did the others.

10. So, Palin can use PAC money to take vacations all over the USA and World?
If she is not 'running' for anything, then 'legally' how can she be considered currently a 'politician'?
Seems like there should be a regulation in there regarding PACs that they can't be used as a 'personal' slush fund.

12. There probably should be more regulations on PACs.
But politicians would have to pass them and they are reluctant to mess with their gravy trains.

18. I didn't catch all of it, walked into the room after it started. What I heard was ....
he was talking about how Palin 'can' use SarahPAC money for trips and also MEALS as long as she discusses something political during the meal even if it is only 'with Todd'. And he also called the PAC money a 'slush fund'.

Maybe there'll be a video on YouTube or MSNBC.

11. Let them waste their $$$...
Every dime donated by the lemmings to Sarah's personal expense account will be one dime less they have to spend on an actual candidate.
