Sarah Palin's Big Decision -- Payday vs. Politics

1/10/2011 6:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

If Sarah Palin's TLC reality show comes back for a second season, it's a sign she's choosing a big payday over a run at the White House ... Palin sources tell TMZ.

Network sources say TLC "would green light another season of Palin's show in a second." The show scored huge ratings and network honchos believe another installment would be even bigger.

We're told the decision to continue the show is squarely in Sarah's hands. Here are the considerations, according to our sources:

A) She would make millions of dollars by doing another season.
B) If she does sign on, she knows she's giving a clear sign to America she's not running for President in 2012.

We're told Palin has made absolutely no public decision, nor has she informed the network. There have been no negotiations. For now it's total radio silence.

There is no way in hell that this birdbrain will ever become President so she may as well opt for another season.

I would have agreed with you a couple of years ago but then Obama won the election.

At least Obama is trying to finish out his term, I don't even see her doing that. She would set two precedents: first woman President, and first woman President to resign consecutively.

Obama may well be the reason she wouldn't be many people think they made a mistake after voting for him; surely they wouldn't be stupid enough to vote for her. Hopefully they've learned from their "mistake:" Two wrongs don't make a right.

Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscienti¬ous stupidity.

He was right. Those Democrats who have been using the targets on their visuals and publishing target lists for years need to be prosecuted! MLK would be ashamed of them.

After the tragedy in Tucson, there is no way this moron will run. All she will be asked about if whether or not she feels responsible because of her cross hairs map.
I hope every time she looks at her own nine year old daughter, Piper, she also thinks about the blood of another nine year old, Christina Green on her hands because of her hateful, violent words.
Even Rep Giffords spoke about Palin and her tactics with a warning that we need to be responsible with our words and actions - how prophetic and sad.

Sarah Palin is not qualified to be President of the United States.
Her folksy, drop the "bleepin" ending of her words sounds like a hillbilly.I give her a few points for not being afraid to say
what's not politcally expedient but may be true;however she lacks gravitas.

Though certainly I think Obama has a good brain....his lack of experience shows in a major way also.

I think it would be great if she became president because she would be impeached within 6 months and that would pretty much sink the Republican Party for the next century. By the way, I am sure her site contributed to the killings in Arizona.

You liberals should be assamed of yourself, the only way you can feel good about yourself is to put someone else down. The Dem over the past few eletions, put out the very same kind of maps,guess thats where the idea came from. Not my idea of "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

I know TMZ is left leaning ( hell if they lean any more they would fall over), so I have to figure this is the worst picture they could find ( or manufacture).

Give me a break on the Arizona shooting, you people just totally AMAZE me with you stupidity......guns do not kill people, PEOPLE kill people. You people just do not get it, "alcohol" and "tobacco" kill more people in the U.S. than a evil person with a gun. WAKE UP get your heads out of your butts and get off the computer, get a job, go to the library, LEARN a few things prior to leaving a comment, geez, people stop making America look so stupid!!!

Anyone that feels they are worthy of saying anything negative about John McCain is on the same level as the nut job that killed these innocent people, oh well, that's what McCain has fought for, ALL of us having the freedom we have right now of voicing our opinions. God Bless America!!

As far as the show goes - it stinks - a beautiful state but what this is really about is her and her family - I watched it and went elsewhere - even kate plus 8 didn't do much for this dud. Can't imagine TLC would go another season of this yuck

Palin to keep her audience has tuned up the hate speeches. Even the tea party groups were concerned who they were attracting. Yes the guy was a crazy on his own - but the M-16 guy and Palin did their little bit. Hate speeches and M-16 shoots are not what free speech is about. Hopefully this will give everyone some perspective on what we are doing to this country. A sad day for this country.

Folks, this incident and her culpability in it, may just be the straw that breaks her run for the presidency. If, and I stress IF, it comes out that this nutcase in Arizona was any kind of fan of hers or has tea party connections, whatever, the Republicans will disown her in a heartbeat.
