Palin Propels 'On The Record' With Greta Van Susteren
One hour Fox News show drew 3.79 million viewers

Monday's interview with Alaska Governor and former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin delivered the most viewers for On The Record with Greta Van Susteren all year.
The one-hour Fox News program drew 3.79 million viewers from 10-11 p.m., with 940.000 in the 25-54 demo.
On The Record was the second highest rated program on all of cable that night, behind only The O'Reilly Factor, which was tops in both total viewers and the demo.
Sarah Palin runs a state with an annual budget of close to $20 billion dollars and overseas 47,000 state employees, yet you call her dumb? Get you noses out of the coke tray. What has Barack the stuttering mutt without a teleprompter ever run in his life? Palin has more executive experience then Obama. Oh I forgot, that's Mr. 57 states Obama. Did you all forget that easily? I wonder did Obama learn that afghans don't speak Arabic either. Yeah but Obama is real bright?lol lol lol change, drool, change, drool. Palin is going to come back in 2012 in a completely messed up Obama Carter 1st term, and he will get his behind beat bad. Just like in the 1984 ad. Big brother is Obama and guess who's going to throw the javeline at him?! lol

Who cares about the ratings? We want to know more about the potential future leadership of our country!
Ms. Van Susteren isn't the story, Ms. Palin is!
No surprise that there are high ratings as we're all curious about Ms. Palin. It''s so sad that so many Americans don''t respect schooling and education and put a two-dimensional image on a pedestal. Is that what Ms. Van Susteren was chasing or was she seeking a better image of Ms. Palin than we were able to find during the election?
Americans don''t want brain surgery, heart surgery, research or engineering by two-dimensional mediocre stupid people. Why would we want to see, hear or elect anything less than someone excellent in politics? Is it because we don''t think that smart politicians are trustworthy? Why can''t we as a country become mature enough to respect intelligence and speak in real sentences? I want to respect an educated leader, male or female. I want to know that s/he is aware of the details of so many key issues in government. And I want my fellow citizens to make the effort to understand what that means. If Americans want mediocrity and stupidity, the rest of the world will be happy to takeover our lifestyle and what we love. GET A CLUE. Ms. Palin, please lead us to a better place than we saw during this election. Show us what you really know and don''t be ashamed of it. World leaders like Linus Pauling were still humble enough to give piggy back rides when visiting my friend for dinner. And he was a Nobel prize winner. The true heroes are intelligent and approachable - smart yet free of arrogance.

I am particularly interested in voting for people who are highly intelligent, honest and who care about the poor and middle class. I want someone who will lead America out of the mess it has been in for the past 8 years. Sarah Palin has never expressed any interest in the poor, is barely literate and definitely is not honest. She's a loser and it's time to move on to those who can help our poor country get out of the hole that has been dug for it by the Republicans now in office. It's time to turn our attention to Obama/Biden and help America get back on track!

Sarah Palin is great - all-american, God-fearing, sincere, personable, great values and yes...intelligent! Or is Pelosi more your type?

I feel that Sarah Palin is probably THEE LEAST qualified person in government EVER with maybe the exception to Dan Quayle. But Dan Quayle was not divisive like Palin....for me there is no record to set straight. Palin totally violates the SEPARATION OF CHURCH & STATE (who decided we combine them now?) and yet in her proclaimed Christianity is a vicious, non-informed, conniving, lying disgrace to CHRISTIANS, WOMEN, PEACEFUL PEOPLE and HOCKEY MOMS!@
Same of Fox for attempting to sweep the litter over her stinky droppings!
