    gee what a surprise. The only network that is dumb enough to take her seriously now gives her an open forum to display her ignorance on TV on a regular basis

    This is great news. Poor CNN you only have Cambell Brown and Anderson Blooper. I bet Fox's ratings will even go higher than they are now. CNN you need to bring back the spin room with Press and Carlson and have Matilin and Carvel host Crossfire.

    FOX News? Really?! Is that because they're 'Fair and Balanced'?

    Why not just come out and admit that FOX News is the PR arm of the Republican party?

    I try SO hard not be cynical, but Sarah Palin makes it SO though not to be!

    Give me a break!

    When I first read this, I thought CNN had offered her a spot and became quite concerned. When I saw it was Fox I sighed with relief and said "It figures".

    LOL... it's a comedy show.. right? Because every time that woman opens her mouth I get entertained. Faux News is the perfect place for her to "sit and spin". Now the GOP has their three darlings for 2012 all in one place... Rush, Beck and Palin. With those stellar individuals leading the way, the RNC has no chance of losing...

  12. What the?

    Fair and balanced doesn't apply to Sarah Palin either :)

    Just when you think Fox network couldn't sink any deeper into their shallow, divisive, hatemongering psuedo-commentary, along comes the tsunami of mental idiocy, Sarah Palin!! Be careful though Sarah, Bill O'Reilly likes the girls.

    Great - some more 'fair and balanced' opinion from the Paris Hilton of politics.

    Quit your job as governor to be a Fox news contributor. What a promotion!

    I suppose selling it to Fox is more convenient that selling it on street corners, but the result is the same.

    That's news? Wasn't this part of the plan all along? Should be fun to watch her insightful analysis.

    What will even be more fun is if she decides to run in 2012. What will the defenders of "poor picked on Sarah" say when her Republican opponents attack her just as viciously during the primaries as the feel she has been attacked by those mean, horrible liberals.

    I don'tr really see her running for president.

    This will be good for her, she'll have a chance to establish a real image with tons of footage recording it all. It will be up to her to decide if she wants to be a talking head entertainer or a serious pol with well thought out positions.
