Sarah Palin Floats Glenn Beck as a Possible 2012 Running Mate

In an interview with Newsmax, Sarah Palin floated Fox News host Glenn Beck’s name as her running mate for 2012. Palin said, “But Glenn Beck I have great respect for. He’s a hoot. He gets his message across in such a clever way.” Apparently, Palin’s qualifications for a running mate include that they be a “hoot.”

Palin chuckled when asked about the possibility of a Palin/Beck ticket and said, “I can envision a couple of different combinations, if ever I were to be in a position to really even seriously consider running for anything in the future, and I’m not there yet. But Glenn Beck I have great respect for. He’s a hoot. He gets his message across in such a clever way. And he’s so bold – I have to respect that. He calls it like he sees it, and he’s very, very, very effective.”

Are we to believe that Palin would seriously consider Beck as her running mate? She doesn’t want some credible conservative, or a policy expert. No, Sarah wants a running mate who is bold and a hoot. Is there anyone out there who can still be possibly wondering why most of the political world does not take Sarah Palin seriously?

Democrats would be doing somersaults at the very prospect of a Palin/Beck ticket. It would be a dream come true for them, while also nuking what remains of the Republican Party. I can see Palin blaming Beck when on Election Night the ticket gets 24% of the vote.

If Palin is looking for a running mate who is a hoot, maybe she should also consider Jeff Dunham. I sure his puppets would keep her in stitches for hours on the campaign trail.

  1. Just when I think she’s pegged the bottom end of the Stupid-o-Meter, she breaks through to newer lows! I can’t figure out who is more stupid: she or Michele Bachmann. I’d love to see those two in a battle of wits; both their heads would explode like Austin Powers’ fembots!

  2. Idiot of the year? TV gossip show hostess? King and queen o’ the teabaggers?

  3. Are you friggin kiddin me? If Sara “Blunder Woman” Palil ever becomes President, Im outta here. Brazil here I come!


  4. This article is incredibly misleading and written purely for the shock value.

    Palin was ASKED BY A REPORTER if she would consider Glenn Beck as a running mate. Palin replied that (A) she is not in a position to seriously consider running for office at the moment, and (B) she respects Glenn Beck and thinks he gets his message across effectively.

    The statement “Sarah Palin floated Fox News host Glenn Beck’s name as her running mate for 2012” is pure fabrication at best.

    I have no love for Palin or Beck, but this article is a blatant attempt to boost page views capitalizing on our collective dislike of those two individuals.

  5. I was thinking exactly the same thing. Sarah Palin says a lot of nutty things. It’s not like the author had to exaggerate like this.

  6. Another reason not to believe what you read (regardless of your political orientation).

    Palin was responding to a question from a journalist who asked her if she would consider Beck as a running mate. She took the typical “answer without pissing anyone off or really answering the quesiton” position, and commented about Beck without ever floating the possibility of Beck as a running mate.

    Like so many lefty and rightie bloggers, jmeasley, you’re an idiot.

  7. Great comment!!!

    Suggestion –

    Don’t dislike the person, dislike their position. Maybe we can bring the civility back to political discourse.

  8. I live outside Indy, and happened to drive by a certain mall this morning on my way to work.
    Seeing a throng of bodies lined up in the cold, misty morning drizzle I was initially confused as to what may be transpiring. “What would drag so many peoples out of doors at this time?” I queried? My roommate passenger kindly offered the reminder that Sarah Palin was coming to town to sign autographs for her new book today!

    So, just who is the brain damaged one? The crazy, cracker ass, north country churchie, or literally 1,000’s of people who will risk their health to gently caress her scribbled over memoirs?

  9. Do a google or Wiki search and see what the term “tea bagging” really means. You’ll split your sides

  10. I’m about as far left as they come and I certainly enjoy it when palin makes a fool of herself, but this is a total non-story.

  11. If she became president, I think that would cause me to move far far away also. No brazil for me, I’ll try for Great Britain. Long live the queen?

  12. Wow how sad and obvious the political bias shines in this article. Even she eluded to how she was not even at the point of considering a run. No really dems keep choking this chicken while the rest of the country plans to revoke on your party come next election.

  13. If Glen Beck was the republican running mate, I think it’d only be appropriate to see Jon Stewart as the democrat running mate.

    And Jeff Dunham is a terrible comedian. Just had to get that out there. There are so many better and lesser known comedians who will probably never attain the level of success that Dunham has and that makes me sad :*(

  14. Man I feel dumber just by reading the stupid comments you morons post. Just keep sticking your nose up the butt of the man leading us down the tubes and pretend everything is going to come out smelling like roses.

    No one said that if the mythical Palin and Beck ticket were to actually come to fruition that they would be running under the Republican ticket. True conservatives are fed up with the Republicans as well as the Democrats. We have been forced to vote for Republicans just as Homosexuals have the Democrats.

    Its time to stand up for what you believe in and make a difference. Stop letting these dirty politicians run our country. They work for us. MAKE SURE THEY UNDERSTAND THIS!

  15. Whoever wrote this article must be more retarded than Sarah Palin’s baby. Because she was asked what is obviously a joke question, and responds with some positive comments about Glenn Beck, you seriously think she would in any way consider him a viable running mate? Sarah Palin is really stupid, but even she knows shed get laughed out of the country if she picked Glenn Beck as her running mate. Apparently the author of this article is even more stupid than she is.

  16. Since the world is expected to end in December of 2012 anyhow, why not? its not like career politicians have done any good in the last decade. i am looking for a nice Chinese girl to marry.

  17. As a liberal I would hope that we would be smart enough not to entertain propaganda like this. Palin is an idiot but, obviously she wasn’t serious.

  18. I just shake my head at the stupid morons who cannot catch a (good) joke even if it bites them in the butt!

    That is why you have to have an IQ of at least 90 to understand what Palin says.

    Go get an IQ before you comment on anything Palin says!


  19. I find it funny that people will bash a person for the way they talk and in the same breath claim to know what substance in a human being is!! This whole forum and biased news article attacking a person’s mannerisms should be ashamed! If you are going to attack a person’s politics, ATTACK THEIR POLITICS!! Don’t attack them personally! Get some class people!! Oh and BTW, I do not support Sarah Palin, and not b/c she says things like “he’s a hoot”! Go back to your gossip magazines and reality TV shows and leave the educated things like voting to the rest of us PLEASE!!!

  20. Most people believe what they hear and don’t bother fact checking. This is why the country is in the state it is right now. If you can’t beat em’, bash em’. That is the new political moto! The media bashes people to sell magazines, papers and to get people to watch their news organizations. However, the general public is too ignorant to see through that.

  21. If Obama hasn’t completely destroyed America by 2012, a Palin/anyone ticket is just what the country will need.

    It’s funny to see all the idiots bashing her.

  22. Get used to it… Palin/Beck, or Palin/Somebody Great….

    She will win the presidency, and you all can keep laughing mocking joking because… YOU ACTUALLY FUEL THE FIRE FOR HER RISE… THANK YOU KEEP UP THE GREAT INGENIOUS WORK.

    I agree the IDIOT OBAMA may destroy the country by 2012… — I could see Palin/Jindahl, or Palin/Beck (that would be great) or even Palin/Thompson. I hope Dick Morris becomes her campaign manager as well—who took Bubba, a third rate governor, to the heighest office and short order. Looks like he’s on board, already advising her from a distance.

  23. […] Sarah Palin Floats Glenn Beck as Possible Running Mate in 2012 [Politicus USA] […]

  24. I’m scared because I know a lot of people that are intelligent and they support Palin. I don’t know why and it scares me.

  25. The US in on the brink of implosion. And if it wasn’t, it would not even matter. Rep or dem… left right… black white….


    And if something does, it will be for the worse before it gets any better. Good luck seeing that happening in your lifetime.

    Fuck the USA.

  26. Very doubtful it would happen, but I pray it does. From reading some of the earlier posts, we could also get a bunch of these retarted Libs out of this country too! They seem to like Brazil.

  27. Isn’t it amazing how when people are wrong they start calling names and then sign their names “Anonymous.” This is a constant liberal tactic. Get some substance in your comments, then debate. You’ll lose! Think about it; don’t just call names. Do you think you can?

  28. The feminization of our nation has gotten way out of hand. What the hell happened? Here’s a suggestion to all you little sissy boy liberals out there: skip the nail salon, put down the latte and pick up a hammer. Build something. How about a tree house for your kid…

  29. @, So mr Anonymous, you are saying that all the people here that are named Anonymous and are promoting Scarah are liberals?

    Thats scary

  30. I think she’s pegged the bottom end of the Stupid-o-Meter, she breaks through to newer lows! I can’t figure out who is more stupid: she or Michele Bachmann. I’d love to see those two in a battle of wits; both their heads would explode like Austin Powers’ fembots!

  31. If that ticket came to pass it will be time for Civil War II. Not geographical, just a war between the intelligensia and the underclass hell-bent on a return to the dark ages.

    Guys like David Brooks and George Will better get their rear-ends in gear and make sure Jeb wins the nomination — unless he decides to wait until 2016….

  32. I agree.
    I had heard from a co-worker that this was true and had to look it up solely based on the abusurdidy of it. Palin, in my mind, isn’t even a noteworthy polititian anymore. She gave up her office. Beck is a sensation based media-whore whom I would barely call a journalist. Just like all those talk radio ass-hats. So don’t go spreading these retarded rumors.

  33. Count your blessing but for the grace of GOD are you or someone you love not affected with a birth defect.. My nephew is.. If I was as uncaring and demoral as you I would wish you to know what its like.. But God has blessed me with a good heart and I pray you will awaken from you bitter world.

  34. I saw Palin and Beck get up in public and state they believe in God and American.. I’m sorry has any other politician done that NO!
    I vote from the ones who are not afraid to say. I believe in God!

  35. This is our country! It’s far better than the rest even if it’s in sad condition… Fix it don’t critize it… You dont love the USA leave it

  36. Its so sad that all you can find to do is bash anyone… Including Sarah or Beck. Our country is in despare because we have removed the values.. Politicains dont take a stand on anything. They just conceptualize. Sarah said Glenn’s a hoot, so what, is that bad? Has Obama done something amazing.. He is the leader of the country the one most visible and he says his religion is not for public knowledge.. I disagree Put God back in our country, our schools, our lives… Glenn Beck and Sarha Palin said they believe this straight out.. If this is true and thats who they are more power to them. If its a gemic let God deal with it… I vote for anyone who says the core issue to what you believe in.. The details will take care of themself if the foundation is strong. God bless America and all those who support him and this country.

  37. You are obviously one of the few enlightened ones amongst us. Please, grace us with more of your superior wit.
