Is Sarah Palin Pitching Herself to ‘The View’?

sarah palin_304x200The rumor mill on who will replace ousted “The View” hosts Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy is in full force, and former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin seems to be throwing her hat in the ring.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Palin talks about possibly co-hosting a political talk show, mentioning that “The View” might be better if it goes “rogue.”

Maybe. But the politics would have to be interspersed with a whole lot of fun and real life and inspiration showcasing American work ethic, because those topics are all pretty much the antithesis of today’s politics, which I find incorrigibly disastrous! It’d be so much fun to shake it up taking on issues that make audiences objectively consider all sides, and I’d do it with my own real-life groundedness, candor and commonsense that I’m known for. Media needs that today, versus the condescension that oozes from TV and radio. I hear everyone recently got canned from The View, maybe a show like that needs a punch of reality and a voice of reason from America’s heartland to knock some humble sense into their scripts. You know, someone willing to go rogue.

In our poll on potential new hosts, NBC’s Ann Curry led the way, followed by CNN’s S.E. Cupp and Palin’s former running mate’s daughter, Meghan McCain.
