The Palin Model, Ctd

by Chris Bodenner

The aspiring senator from Nevada has become a keen disciple:

David Brody: I just want to understand. You’re saying that you’re not willing to play this mainstream media “gotcha” game basically? Is that what you’re saying?

Sharron Angle: No. There’s no earnings for me there. We’re looking at how can we best benefit from the media. We get so many requests. I do sometimes 7 interviews a day so it’s not like we’re running from the media. It’s just that we’re earning with that media.

David Brody: Not to harp on the point but when you’re on Fox News or talking to more conservative outlets but maybe not going on “Meet the Press” or a “This Week”, those type of news shows, then the perception and the narrative starts to be like you are avoiding those mainstream media outlets.

Sharron Angle: Well, in that audience will they let me say, "I need $25 dollars from a million people, go to Sharron Angle.com, send money?" Will they let me say that?

Steve Benen shows her in action:

Angle chatted with Fox News' Neil Cavuto this week, and the very first words that came out of her mouth were, "Well, first of all, Neil, it's great to be on your show to talk about this campaign against Harry Reid who needs $25 million -- and I have been saying I only need a million people to send $25 to SharronAngle.com." Eric Hananoki notes that Angle "also made fundraising pitches on Hannity and Fox & Friends."

Whether Sharron Angle could function as a United States senator is unclear, but her future as a televangelist appears bright.
