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.

TMZ WAKE UP !!!!!! Apparently TLC has pulled the plug on her stupid show!! Most likely because of all of the violence and hatred that she spews on a daily basis not to mention the joy she gets killing poor helpless animals..and NO it isn't for food either so I don't want to hear that lame excuse, she doesn't hunt to eat she just does it because she thinks its fun. She is a moron pure and simple and TLC should have never given her a show.

I've seen the show for about 30 mins and wouldn't watch it again. As a matter of fact, I just turned it off.
As far as POTUS, good luck with that. I'm conservative and wouldn't vote if this woman were my only choice.

This loon brained idiot has no possible way of becoming US President and she knows that. She would not even get the Republican nomination because its leaders are old prejudiced rich men who still see women as lower than a man. So as far as the Republicans preaching freedom, opportunities, and justice for all, there are exceptions: RACE, GENDER, and SEXUALITY.

I think she should run. Together with Joe the Plumber she truly represents the philosophical and ideological depth of the GOP, the party of the shareholders and haves that always energizes enough have-nots by promising them lots of crumbs to feast on ... :-)

she wont run..because the likes of the huff post msnbc and TMZ run her name through the mud so much she wouldnt stand a chance.yet when obama was running neither one of those so called media places i just named would even give obama one hard ball question.

the liberal media wont state the fact that the democrats have a map with targets on it..also lets look at a quote that the non violent democrat obama made at a rally when he was running for president.

“If they bring a knife to the fight, we ...bring a gun,” Obama said at a Philadelphia fundraiser Friday night. “Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. ”

now had a gun fight broke out afterwards would MSNBC or the Huffington post be crying foul?? you bet your arse they wouldnt here is a link to the democrat target map btw.

What decision?
Name one politician who became poor by becoming a politician?
You cannot name one!They all enriched themselves at the expense of the taxpayers.
Politics provides the biggest pay-day since noe of the elected elected elites wants to leave office until they die.
The writer must believe that all tax payers are extremely stupid!

It's not a tough decision: if someone is willing to pay her for .....what is it they pay her for????....anyway, if someone is willing to pay her for anything, at least she shows she's smart enough to take it while she can. A run for president for her would only cost her millions, and with her being humiliated, would greatly diminish her appeal, and following. The republican party would love to see her run: not because she can win, but because if the economy continues to recover, they know Obama will be hard to beat in a second term, and they may as well offer her up as a "token" candidate, expose her as unelectable, and get her out of the way for 2016, which is the target the republicans will really focus on. Right now she's a pain in their you know what!

25: Oh yes. Forgot that part. Horny male syndrome exists in there. But they will try and use their 'real' brains for political decisions.

Not that she had a snow-ball's chance in hell of winning the nomination or the presidency before, but she certainly can't be the nominee now. The whole association with the Tucson shooting will be too difficult for her to rebound from. If TMZ's poll is to be believed, half of the people think (either fairly or unfairly) that she has blood on her hands.

She's not running and she never was going to run for prez. She's more effective doing what she's doing and is making more money at it.
