Palin to Fox News: Buh-bye.


palin bye fox

Knock knock.

Who's there?


CNN who?

CNN could very well be stupid enough and desperate enough to hire Former Half-Gov Jobless McLipSchmutz now that she's out of work.

Via Real Clear Politics:

After a three-year run as a paid contributor to the nation’s highest-rated cable news channel, Sarah Palin and FOX News have cut ties, according to a source close to the former Alaska governor.

It’s my understanding that Gov. Palin was offered a contract by FOX, and she decided not to renew the arrangement,” the source close to Palin told RCP. “She remains focused on broadening her message of common-sense conservatism across the country and will be expanding her voice in the national discussion.”

I didn't think her message could get much broader... and by "broad" I mean broad comedy.

Wait, she turned Fox down? When someone as embarrassing and unprofessional as Sarah Palin turns you down, you know you're in trouble. Then again, this is the network that rehired Karl Rove even after his Election Night debacle.

So do you think now that she's unemployed, she'll apply for government assistance?

As for expanding her voice, there is no way in the world that voice could possibly get any bigger, broader, louder, screechier, expandier, or more annoying...

WTF indeed. And yes, yes you are the idiot.

    O'Reilly never liked her. He's the Queen Bee 0n that nutwork.

  • "I find it hard to believe that Palin would turn down $1 million a year to occasionally appear on TV and bash President Obama."

    So do I -- especially considering she has no other marketable skills.

    Oh, well -- there's always Glenda Beck's The Blayz!

     That RCP piece is attributed to an unnamed "source" allegedly close to Palin.  Speculative at best.  You don't piss off Roger Ailes and get away with it.

    Yes, that is what is being reported. I find it hard to believe that Palin would turn down $1 million a year to occasionally appear on TV and bash President Obama. 

  • I'm not assuming that at all. That's what's being reported. But the funny thing is, my original title was "Fox to Palin: Buh-bye" because I assumed they fired her.

    Then I reread the article. I can only post what is reported, so I'm stuck with that for now.

    You are assuming that Palin turned down FAUX News, and not the other way around. It's possible that FAUX, or Roger Ailes, didn't want her. She disobeyed him two years ago and produced the "Blood Libel" video, and she was to announce her intentions for a 2012 presidential run on FAUX, but did so on a radio program. It's possible that FAUX made her an offer, but one so bad that she turned it  down.

    If CNN is stupid enough to hire her, their ratings will fall even faster than they have been lately.
