    Why Fox News Channel doesn't just change their name to RNC, Republican News Channel.

    Maybe you all should watch Fox and get reliable news, oh yeah you're dirty liberals that are ruining the country! Forgot for a moment there, can't wait to see the look on your faces when Palin is in the white house in 2012 doing something that isn't going on trips and trying to get a pointless healthcare bill signed.

    If the accuracy, or lack of, in her contributions to Fox
    are comparable to her reports in her book.....everyone sit back
    for "Fox Comedy Hour"!

    I can't wait to see it. It'll be the funniest show after Family Guy. If there was a god he/she would strike her down now.

    Her journalism degree may come in handy... Oh wait... they don't DO journalism at Fux! It's okay anyway, she's not great - okay horrible - with facts.

    Perfect place for her. Her contributions will greatly enhance the commentary from fox. As a matter of fact, it resembles fox in every way. Lies and obvescation. Silly commentary and quotes. She has finally landed in a place where facts don't matter. What a deal for her.

    This is so boring and banal I can't even think of anything clever to post.

    Sarah will become as strong as Beck has become in share of viewers. Those of you who thought these folks were losers will see them become big winners. That's pretty simple, since the general public is becoming more regretful and conservative by the day.

    #1 reason Faux News signed Sarah...

    She can see Russia from her front porch!

    My god this 3 ring circus gets better and better, please Sarah don't let Faux News put words in your mouth – just be yourself so we can count on a 2010 Democratic sweep – LOL

    What sort of contributions or insight will Sarah Palin give? Anyway, it has always been GIGO (Garbage In Garbage Out) at FOX News. That has always been what they stands for. I am not surprised.

    Good, that should kill her presidential aspirations for good.

    I can't wait for her to put her foot in her mouth. This lady cannot speak unless she has someone writing or telling her what to say. This will indeed backfire on FOX news. Nobody watches FOX news anyhow.

  23. all the news that's fit to omit

    Funny how the gutless posters here WHO WISH they have accomplished HALF of what Palin has in her lifetime run away from Oprah long enough to post this garbage.

    CNN, YOU WISH she was on your network, maybe you would get some ratings, instead enjoy last place.

    No problem here, just looking forward to FIRST Scott Brown beating Coakley, then November the Dems losing seats and Governships and 2012 watching Barry and Shelly spewing their true hateful venom once they are ONE AND DONE.

    Shelly will be a hoot and she can go back to her no-show job.

    Fox News has been deleted from my channel lineup for years. Unless she says something incredibly stupid (I’m counting on that) I hope to never hear from her again..
