Sarah Palin appears to have thrown her hat into the ring for a job as a panelist on the ABC talk show "The View."
The former Alaska governor said she’d be willing to go "rogue" on the ABC talk show, which recently announced that Whoopi Goldberg would be the only remaining panel member when the new season starts in the fall, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"I hear everyone recently got canned from 'The View.' Maybe a show like that needs a punch of reality and a voice of reason from America's heartland to knock some humble sense into their scripts," said Palin. "You know, someone willing to go rogue."
Asked whether she would like to host a political talk show on TV, radio, or the Internet, she told the entertainment industry magazine, "Maybe. But the politics would have to be interspersed with a whole of fun and real life, an inspiration showcasing American work ethic, because those topics are all pretty much the antithesis of today’s politics, which I find incorrigibly disastrous."
In her email interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she continued, "I’d be so much fun to shake it up, taking issues that make audiences objectively consider all sides, and I’d do it with my own real-life groundedness, candor, and commonsense that I’m known for. Media needs that today versus the condescension that oozes from TV and radio."
Jenny McCarthy is leaving "The View" after just one season, while Sherri Shepherd
cried on Monday morning when she talked about her departure after nine seasons. Barbara Walters retired from the show in May.
Palin’s interview followed the announcement that Sportsman Channel has picked up a second season of "Amazing America with Sarah Palin," which highlights the country’s great outdoors and some of its unsung heroes.
