Sarah Palin is urging Republican presidential candidates to take part in the Newsmax ION Television 2012 Presidential Debate moderated by Donald Trump.

The former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate made her endorsement in an interview to air Wednesday night on the Fox Business Network. Palin’s endorsement is the latest high-profile conservative to support the debate set for Dec. 27.

"I think candidates should not be afraid in front of the nation no matter who the host of the debate is,” Palin said. “What is a bit appealing about this idea of Trump hosting a debate is, consider the diverse audience that perhaps he can attract. It's important that independents and those who are not obsessed with inside-baseball partisan politics, which is most of us, we'd like to hear more of the message of each one of these candidates and perhaps Donald Trump will be able to attract a diverse demographic that maybe has not been as interested in this horse race thus far.

"America needs to wake up to what is going on under Obama's socialist policies and how he will bankrupt the country. I'm looking at the debate as a positive thing because of that fact."

Ralph Reed’s Faith and Freedom Coalition is on board along with Grover Norquist's Americans for Tax Reform (ATR), and the American Conservative Union (ACU), chaired by Al Cardenas, which sponsors the annual Conservative Political Action Conference. Both ATR and ACU are sponsors for the debate.

Who is not surprised by this? Didn't Palin have her own reality show? Why are we still asking Sarah Palin what she thinks about such things?

"consider the diverse audience that perhaps he can attract."

I don't really care how "diverse" the audience of some obscure cable channel is. It's not a good use of time.

I agree. It makes the GOP look ridiculous. Why are they allowing somone like Trump use this for his own publicity stunt?

Everytime I read a Palin quote, I have to re-read it, because her syntax and sentence structure make absolutely no sense

Whether you think so or not, millions of people trust Sarah Palin. At the very least she is a real person and not some coached creation or the left or right drone laboratory.

Mistakes and all....most of her message is spot on. Obama is a failure and as she rightly points out...people need to wake up to the socialist agenda that he is leading this country into.

You mocking people for listening to what Palin has to say is laughable since you support a man who is burying us.

You lefties make me laugh.

I don't think "reality" and "Palin" should ever be allowed to be used in the same sentence
