On Saturday (Dec. 7), Palin met the Robertson family from "Duck Dynasty" and the Duck Commander team supporters in West Monroe, La. "Had a blast meeting the Duck Commander gang as well as the great folks who came to the book signing yesterday evening," Palin writes. "A happy happy happy Christmas to all of you and a big shout out to the staff at Books-a-Million!"
Her family even got in on the fun too, as Todd Palin had a FaceTime chat with the Duck Commander team while he was out "snowmaching on a frozen river in Alaska training for the Iron Dog."

Stop the presses; Sarah Palin actually has something positive to say about the media.

MSNBC journalist Martin Bashir took the Sarah Palin hate one step too far during an on air broadcast in mid-November, and he's since resigned to allow the network to "focus on the issues that matter without the distraction of myself or my ill-judged comments." For the first time since his resignation, Palin has come forward to respond to the incident.
In an appearance on "Fox & Friends", Palin discussed the offensive comments like one where he suggested someone defecate in her mouth.
"My role was to accept his apology and be humble enough to accept it and move on," she says. "But I just hope that unprovoked attack like that don't result in people being hesitant to jump in the arena anyway. ... I just hope that an attack like that doesn't make people hesitate."
Palin adds, "At this point, I'm used to it."

Updated, 11:30 Am: Martin Bashir‘s resignation from MSNBC after making graphic statements about Sarah Palin on his program led to some interesting, and unexpected, results. This morning, for instance, Palin praised the media for keeping on the story alive after Bashir apologized for comments he made about her on his show. “It was refreshing to see though, that many in the media did come out and say, ‘Look our standards have got to be higher than this’,” Palin said this morning on Fox News Channel‘s Fox & Friends. “Those with that platform, with a microphone, a camera in their face, they have to have some more responsibility taken.” Meanwhile, Alec Baldwin, who’d added his voice to the chorus wondering why MSNBC had not punished Bashir for his incendiary, pre-planned on-air comment about Palin — Baldwin had been suspended, then canceled for his homophobic rant against a photographer — weighed in »

Sarah Palin on Thursday was matter of fact regarding the departure of MSNBC host Martin Bashir. “At this point, I’m used to it. That’s kind of a sad state of affairs to have to admit that I am used to it,” Palin said on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.” Bashir resigned his post at the network on Wednesday for scathing comments he made on his Nov. 15 broadcast during which he labeled Sarah Palin “a world class idiot” and referenced a diary of a former plantation manager who forced a slave to defecate in another slave’s mouth, adding Palin would be an “outstanding candidate” for the same. Palin praised the media for coming down hard on Bashir’s shocking remarks. »

Alec Baldwin came to the defense of fellow former MSNBC host Martin Bashir on Twitter late Wednesday and had some harsh words for his former network. “I wish @MartinBashir the best of luck,” Baldwin wrote. “Some of these cable venues really are Off-Off Television.” “And their need for a reliable, even forced, homogeneity is more apparent than ever.” Also Read: Martin Bashir Resigns From MSNBC After Sarah Palin Slam Baldwin, whose own MSNBC show “Up Late” was canceled two weeks ago after the actor was caught on camera using a gay slur, said Bashir’s career shouldn’t have been ruined by one transgression. »

Bashir says in a statement that he's resigning so that his colleagues at MSNBC "will be allowed to focus on the issues that matter without the distraction of myself or my ill-judged comments." Mediaite was the first to publish the statement.
Palin came under criticism last month after comparing the burden of the national debt to slavery in a speech. Bashir's take on the speech, however, stood out for its harshness. He described the diary an 18th century plantation overseer named Thomas Thistlewood, who chronicled his merciless treatment of slaves -- including instances where he forced other slaves to defecate in the mouths of rule-breakers.
"When Mrs. Palin invokes slavery, she doesn't just prove her rank ignorance," Bashir said at the time. "She »
