To understand the true views of Roger Ailes, one of the smartest cats
in media and politics, ask yourself: Who was his favored candidate for
the Republican nomination in 2012? If you don't remember, read below.
For now Ailes, in what may or may not be a hint of coming attractions at
Fox News, has said farewell to Sarah Palin. Torches are being passed
all over. As Palin fades from Fox, Sen. Marco RubioMarco RubioThis week: Congressional Republicans prepare to huddle with Trump Week ahead: Trump takes up ambitious energy agenda GOP, Dems hear different things from Trump MORE (R-Fla.) aspires to
lead the conservative base toward more humane and creative policies,
beginning with immigration. Kudos to Rubio. Meanwhile, Secretary of
State Hillary ClintonHillary Rodham ClintonJuan Williams: Ethics cloud hangs over Trump Clinton: Photos from women’s march ‘awe-inspiring’ Ex-Clinton aide: Spicer should have resigned rather than lie MORE passes the torch at the State Department to Sen.
John KerryJohn KerryWeek ahead: Early questions for Trump on cybersecurity Kerry and his dog stroll through women's march Trump fails to mention Clinton in inaugural address MORE (D-Mass.), whose experience will make him an outstanding
secretary. Speaking of passing the torch, how about President Obama
sharing a “60 Minutes” interview with Secretary Clinton?
The Palin farewell from Fox and the Rubio hello to more humane conservativism are big news, taken together. Palin represents the know-nothing wing of Republicanism, while Rubio is one voice that could define the future of Republicanism. However, Sarah Palin should not be underestimated. Will she lead a backlash against immigration reform from the right? Will she join protests at town meetings against moderate Republicans on immigration? Or will she follow Rubio's lead?
Marco Rubio now joins the anti-stupid wing of Republican Party, alongside New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.
When was the last time anyone saw Barack Obama graciously invite anyone to share the glory with him? Once again, Hillary breaks a ceiling! Democrats love it. Hillary Clinton is more than the front-runner if she runs in 2016. She is the presumptive nominee for the Democrats, and with her popularity so high, the sky is the limit for Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Which brings me back to Roger Ailes. While Ailes is sticking with Dick Morris, who will thrill the nation with endless predictions of spectacular humongous gigantic Republican landslides that will lead to GOP domination of the Milky Way galaxy, Ailes's divorce from Sarah Palin is not without significance.
Who did Roger Ailes prefer in 2012?
Holmes to Watson: What does this tell us?
