Sarah Palin took to Fox Business on Tuesday to do what she does best: Take aim at “haters.” Appearing on the news channel's Varney & Co. via satellite from Alaska — where she was governor for less than one term before rising to national prominence as John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign running mate — Palin answered host Stuart Varney's leading questions about whether anyone has scared her off.

Sarah Palin scorched the media for making light of her family's “frightening” brawl at a party in Anchorage in September.

See video: ‘The View's’ Nicolle Wallace on Working for Sarah Palin: I Have Political Staffer Version of Ptsd “What happened on the night in question wasn't funny.

Bristol Palin, daughter of Sarah Palin, describes the alleged assault that kick started the ‘Palin family brawl’ that made headlines in September, claiming that a man pushed her on the ground and stole some of her effects.
Bristol Palin Police Audio
“I have a five year old in the car!” Bristol is heard screaming in the audio recording from Sept. 6. Clearly upset, Bristol can be heard telling the police that she was pushed down on the grass by a man, who then dragged her across the lawn, perhaps stealing her $300 sunglasses and shoes in the process.
“They took my $300 sunglasses, they took my f—king shoes, and I’m just f—king left here?” Bristol said before calming down a bit and describing the assault in detail.
“I’m gonna defend my sister, she’s 20 years old. A guy comes out of nowhere, pushes me on the ground, takes me by my feet, »

Make people laugh and they won't even realize you're making them think. Over the past 50 years, women have broken through the glass ceiling time after time, shattering stereotypes and thumbing their noses at the old chestnut that "Women aren't funny." Fact: Anybody who says women aren't funny doesn't want them to be funny. We're looking back on the 50 funniest women of the past 50 years, their contributions to comedy, and their enduring legacies that inspire men and women alike. These are the 50 women who have helped (and are helping) to introduce the next class of hilarious women, which will inevitably include Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling, Tig Notaro, Chelsea Handler, Maria Bamford, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate McKinnon. Keep in mind this list only includes women who are primarily performers in movies, television, and standup comedy. That's why you don't see legends like Nora Ephron, Anne Beatts, and Elaine May here. »

Last week, CBS premiered the new political drama Madam Secretary, which stars Téa Leoni as Elizabeth Faulkner McCord, the U.S. Secretary of State. It's hardly a far-fetched concept, as we've seen three female secretaries of state since 1997: Madeleine Albright, Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Clinton. But it's nonetheless rare to see a fictional universe with a woman in one of the nation's top three positions of political power. (Yep, even in fake realities, politics is a man's game.) And historically speaking, Hollywood has played it as a joke more often than not. So which fictional female presidents, vice presidents »

Bristol Palin Slut-Shamed
The fight that went on to include patriarch Todd Palin, Bristol, Track and Willow, started when Bristol saw the wife of the host push Willow, 20. In her account of the event to police, a “heavily intoxicated” Bristol claimed that host Korey Klingenmeyer pushed her to the ground, dragged her about the lawn by her feet and called her an assortment of names, including slut and c—t, according to a police report obtained by TMZ.
Klingenmeyer and other guests at his snowmobile party claim that Bristol struck him first, punching him five to six times before he grabbed her fist and pushed her to the ground.
After Bristol hit the ground, the stories align to recall Track, 25, Todd and others stepping in to defend Bristol. »

Sarah Silverman's return to her SNL roots has been 20 years in the making, but it's clear that she still has a sense of humor about her short-lived stint on the show. Taran Killam and Silverman play off each other with various non-sequiturs that SNL promos are known for, and Silverman pokes fun at the infamous sketches that that she pretends to take credit for, which include "Cowbell," "Cheerleaders," "the Californians," "Ambiguously Gay Duo," "Gilly," and Tina Fey's impersonation of Sarah Palin. The promos also mention a guy pooping in a bucket, Silverman's "famous" SNL character, Table Girl, and »

Sarah Silverman will return to the “Saturday Night Live” stage after being fired from the late night series 20 years ago. Although there's no bad blood between Silverman and “SNL,” she does want people to know that she's the mastermind behind some of the show's most classic sketches. “I wrote a lot of the really big sketches. I did ‘Cowbell,’ ‘Cheerleaders,’ ‘The Californians,'” Silverman said in a new promo for Saturday's episode, taking credit for bits that she clearly had nothing to do with. “I played Sarah Palin. A lot of people actually thought I was Sarah Palin.” See video: Michael Che. »

"Go big or go home": A skateboarder mindset, a Sarah Palin slogan, the name of a "Parks & Recreation" episode," and now, the guiding mantra of Russell Crowe's directorial debut, "The Water Diviner." Via the magic of Twitter, Crowe debuted the first trailer for the war drama, a shiny blockbuster reminiscent of the high-impact Hollywood productions that shaped the actor's career. When it's not blowing up World War I battlefields, it's swelling with emotional power strings. Written by Andrew Knight and Andrew Anastasios (both involved with Guy Pearce's "Jack Irish" movies), "The Water Diviner" follows a father from New Zealand who flocks to Turkey to find his two sons, gone missing after the 1915 Battle of Gallipoli. Working with remaining troops (including an Australian Liuetentn played by Jai Courtney), Crowe's Connor burrows into the mystery, which appears to flash back and forth between his search and his son's time in the trenches. »

“You’re a perfect couple: You’re terrible people and you’re huge liars,” Cliff hollers at Danny in Tuesday’s Mindy Project, and he’s not wrong — at least not in this week’s episode.
After all, by the time Cliff’s frustration reaches its zenith, both Danny and his self-involved girlfriend have flung falsehoods at each other and repeatedly fibbed to the heartbroken lawyer. Plus, we learn Mindy hasn’t paid taxes in six years?!
It’s as if the docs’ romance has made them even bigger weirdos than when they were apart, as you’ll see while »
Directions aren't really Sarah Palin's strong suit… And while that should come as no surprise to anyone, she did think Russia was in her backyard after all, this latest flub hits a little too close to home. The former vice-presidential nominee was making a speech late last week at an Frc Action event, where she made one memorable flub regarding, what else, the White House! And word to the wise: when attempting to insult the president, be sure to get all the facts straight. Palin opened up her speech antagonizing the current administration, saying, "Don't retreat. You reload with truth, which I know is an endangered species at 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue, anyway, truth…the »
Let’s just say… I was disappointed.
I have a name for my disappointment and it’s America’s Got Powers #1, the first issue – hey, with the screwy numbering system American Comics use nowadays, one can’t be sure # 1 is actually the first issue – of the new mini-series from Image. Disappointing because it was such a cynical and negative portrayal of America. So let’s proceed that I might give voice to my disappointment.
In the not too distant future, to borrow a line from the Mystery Science Theater 3000 theme – because “borrow” sounds so much nicer than steal – something happened. Which, makes America’s Got Powers better than most mainstream comic books, where super heroes can take four pages just to get their mail – and you only think I’m making that up – so as to stretch out some skimpy story out for the six issues suitable for framing »
