A marriage made in purgatory

Well! Who on earth could have seen this coming?
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.

I'm going to play devil's advocate here for just one minute. Maybe Palin will take this opportunity to impress her detractors (minority religion and otherwise) with her skillful analysis of the issues. Perhaps she will use the forum Fox News is giving her to air a well-thought-out viewpoint, and will declaim on policy (domestic and foreign) with such insight and competence that those of us who were inclined to dismiss her will be forced to re-examine our opinions.

Or she could use the mindless echo chamber that is Fox News to become the distaff Glenn Beck, and confirm our worst feelings about her. Anyone wanna guess where I'm putting my dime?


  1. The question I have is how willing she will be to read off of the teleprompter? She has experience at it, so if her thoughts are pre-censured than she shouldn't do too bad, at least as far as presentation and content (you might disagree with the content, but it will at least be coherent). What the danger for her is in her unscripted moments, which are verbal trainwrecks waiting to happen.


  2. Why are you talking about Pres. Obama, charo? Isn't this about... oh, wait, I get it.

  3. having some problem with personal pronouns gadfly? She and her refers to the feminine gender, it has for centuries. What is it like to have a command of no languages?

    And please, have you ever read any interviews by Obama? The guy was a Law lecturer for Christ sake, a trained Lawyer at the top of his class and head of the Law Review. I would like to see you go in front of a class and teach a 3 hour symposium (on anything). They don't have teleprompters in class. If you are going to insult someone, try to have it bear at least some relationship with reality, otherwise you look like a twerp. Now if you had said Joe Biden otoh, you would have elicited at least a chuckle. It is pretty sad I had to point it out for you.
