    Gee whiz, didn't see that coming. It's a perfect fit: a delusional know-nothing joins the fact-less crew of the tin foil hat party propaganda machine.

    She will fit right in with the network that does no fact checking. I wonder if this darling of dementia will team up with Beck and Hannity in a three way contest of lies and hate.

    Since Palin seems to represent a lot of people that think that the government is growing too big, it is only fair that she has a voice as a contributor.

    Those that don't think so don't watch Fox News anyway. It's too bad that other stations don't represent large segments of the population in their coverage. It was embarrassing watching CNN during the 'Tea Party" movement in Washington.

    I'm sure the GOP will threaten to sue Fox like they threatened to sue MSNBC over Ed Schultz if Palin doesn't make clear that she isn't running for President, right?

    Wonderful. When Sara Palin speaks, she has something to say, and America is listening. Even those who despise her for being a beautiful and influential lady. Yes, great move by Fox. Always keeping us informed. Thanks so much for great political coverage FOX. It is a truly patriotic thing that you do. Telling us the truth, and making it fascinating at the same time. 2010 will be a very interesting year for Fox. They will continue to climb in the ratings, as more and more of their loyal American audience tunes in. Fox you rock!
