Looks like the Villagers are finally willing to admit that Sarah the grifter isn't running for anything other than trying to line her own pockets after the WTF moment on Fox News this week.

MATTHEWS: Wow… this brings us to our big question of the week, “Is Sarah Palin hurting Republican hopes of beating Obama?” Rick Stengel, just her whole manner, WTF, those people who use their Blackberries know what that means I guess.

STENGEL: You can’t say that on air right? Look, I think the White House, Democrats think that she’s hurting Republicans. They like the fact that there’s this kind of schism in the party. The thing that I find interesting about it and I don’t know if everybody agrees, its like, where’s her learning curve, right? I mean from the time she was nominated, the last couple of years you’d think she would become sort of more sophisticated about talking…

MATTHEWS: Do you think the curve is going the other way?

STENGEL: I don’t know. Maybe the people who like her don’t want her to have a learning curve. Maybe we are the only ones who do.

MATTHEWS: That is so smart.

MITCHELL: I don’t know if she’s hurting the Republican Party as a party. She’s hurting herself. She is really trivializing herself. She’s marginalizing herself. She’s not presidential and maybe it helps to sell books, but that hasn’t been the case actually in the last cycle. So I think she’s hurting herself and potentially other Republicans.

MATTHEWS: Does this square with running for president even? Does it square for being presidential, the doom comments that are sort of off color, the WTF, things like that.

COOPER: No it doesn’t, but I don’t think that this is necessarily about Sarah Palin being president. It’s much more about the Republican Party and what it does and I think, yes, to a certain extent. But I think the people who love Palin, love Palin and that’s not going to… you know… that’s not going to go away.

MATTHEWS: Bigger question, they put all these people up like Glenn Beck and her and Bachmann. They’re becoming sort of the spokes people, whether they like it… I think they do like it for their point of view. But does that hurt their chance of selling the American people that that point of view should rule the country?

HARRIS: Good for business for them but not good for the Republican Party. She’s not going to hurt the Republican Party long term Chris, because she’s not going to run. So the great 2011 preoccupation but by the fall I think it will be more a more serious race and she won’t be in it.

MATTHEWS: Will the people on the right accept that?

HARRIS: I think they will.

MATTHEWS: The disappearance of their heroes.

HARRIS: Look even among the Republican Party in polls they show that almost a majority don’t want her to run for president and think she’s not qualified.

MATTHEWS: Well said.
