Sarah Palin in the No Spin Zone!

Sarah Palin’s highly anticipated visit to Fox News Channel‘s O’Reilly Factor saw the famously tough-as-nails host ask the tough questions of the right-wing leader:

O’REILLY: OK. The latest poll has you with a 23 percent favorable, 37 percent don’t know. You do the math, OK. And you’re up at 60 percent of people who could like you. You are the biggest threat because you are a star, media star, whereas you’re the only Republican. There aren’t any other Republicans who are media stars but you. Now, that’s why they’re attacking you so vehemently. Do you know that?

In other words, “You could be really popular some day, and don’t know you know how that makes liberals crazy?”

Nothing but the tough questions from that guy.
