Stuck on stupid

It was inevitable. Fox News confirms to the New York Times today that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will become a regular contributor to the cable news channel.

In a multi-year deal, Palin will appear on the channel regularly. A source told the Times that while she will not have her own regular show, she will host an occasional series.

Don’t you know this will add credibility to this so-called news network.  /sarcasm

Oh, and btw, the sun will rise in the east tomorrow just in case you didn’t have that one figured out yet.  🙂

  1. Should keep the editors busy. And, they’ll edit out all the good stuff. 🙂

      I don’t know, I think they actually like her just the way she is.

      And, you know what? I want her to be as unvarnished as she can possibly be – that way, all that word salad will be great foder for SNL.

      Not to mention David Letterman.

    Let me guess – that multi-year deal runs up to 2012?

    I am one of the RINO’s that actually wants Sarah Palin to be on any speaker platform she chooses to be on. Let her talk as much as she wants.

    First – she is causing havoc for the Republican party.

    Second – she is showing herself to all the viewing publica.

    Third – with all that word salad coming out, she is bound to twist herself up into some pretty good tight spots and it will be interesting to see how she wiggles out of them.

    Fourth – I am still waiting to see how little Levi performs in the next few years. There is that little matter of the custody case coming up and if little Levi is shut out by Mama – I’m sure there will be little droplets of information coming out of Levi town.

    I’m not saying Levi is a saint in this matter, but he is right when it comes to the custody of his son – Mama needs to butt out!

  3. It’s rumored her occasional series will be titled ‘From my front porch.’ Oh, and they wanted it to be an hour long but she said she’d need to quit after 20 minutes.

    Let me guess – this is a remake of “Hee Haw”?

  5. Which area of her ‘expertise’ do you think they’ll highlight? And will she get to form her own sentences or will they need to hire additional writers. If they don’t write her lines, you know she can’t appear live, it will have to be delayed programming.

      hey, she is a maverick and she loves doing all that ‘mavericky’ stuff.

      You, know, like being all pure and stuff.

      And here we thought she was asking Joe Biden if she could call him Joe just to appear friendly and nice.

      No, the truth was and still is – she could not get the man’s name straight – and in several attempts!!!

      Like I said before – give her enough time and attention and she will twist herself up into so many tight spots that even a leopard will be jealous!!

    Here’s an example of what Palin may be like in her Fox appearances:

  7. Why do you think God wanted her to be on Fox News?

  8. G-stir

    Is it true that Elmer Fudd will be her co-host?

  9. Here’s the best part of the whole deal — we don’t watch Fox News and maybe now that she is simply not quite a half term governor who was once on a national political ticket and currently employed by a broadcasting company we won’t need to hear about her on other networks. Well, except Comedy Central where she will provide much fodder and laughs!

      Actually, one good thing is that maybe more people will be watching Fox News and actually do some fact checking..

      Now, that could be bad news for all those revisionists that somehow don’t know that 9-11-2001 happened on Bush’s watch -or the shoe bomber, or the Anthrax attack.

    • You have a good point! She’s sure to make enough blunders that other networks will have a greater opportunity to show Fox for exactly what it is, and fair and balanced it is not!

  10. Irish bookie takes bets on Palin’s FoxNews gig

    One day after word came that Sarah Palin is joining FoxNews, Ireland’s biggest bookie reports that about half of bettors doubt the ex-Alaska governor can keep the gig a year.

    Calling her “gaffe-prone,” bookmaker PaddyPower.com adds that the minority group she’s most likely to offend first is gays/lesbians/bisexuals (4-1), followed by African Americans and Muslims (both at 6-1).

    Least likely to bear the initial insult: the Irish, the infirm and Inuits (all tied at 20-1), and Jehovah’s Witnesses (25-1).

    The “gotcha media” was not listed.

    Not a minority, many might say.
