    Fox News ... The network of (and for) the inarticulate and uninformed.

    Only an idiot would watch Fox for anything more than a football game. Alll that pom pom girl can add is more dopey rhetoric.

    The total gall and aggressiveness of the likes of Sarah Palin, Michael Steele, Jon Kyl and John Boehner should never disguise their self-focused irresponsibility. Looking at their concentration and history quickly reveals their loyalty to Special Interests and a select few and their dishonesty in offering the public only subterfuge aimed to manipulate public opinion. The voters need to be careful and not let pulls at their emotions, biases and prejudices cause them to vote for returning to 'more of the same'. With Palin it is totally obvious that her self-focus, easy ability for being dishonest and lack of any real qualifications while yet being cute and entertaining makes her a better candidate for show business than for politics.

    Birds of a feather. Her schtick doesn't work outside the Fox news bubble anyway. Without them to promote her, she would be the laughin gstock of the entire country, not just among the reasoonable. They will let her create her own facts and her own reality, and then work hard to covnice everyone else. No one should be surprised by such a "fair and Balanced" network.

    Hopefully this means her name won't be anywhere near the ballot in 2012.

    Birds of a feather. Her schtick doesn't work outside the Fox news bubble anyway. Without them to promote her, she would be the laughing stock of the entire country, not just among the reasonable people. They will let her create her own facts and her own reality, and then work hard to convice everyone else. No one should be surprised by such a "Fair and Balanced" network.

    Big surprise. But as John Stewart so aptly put it...'Winners are to the Special Olympics as pundits are to Fox News....if you show up, you are one."

    Maybe she and Greta can do a moose meat cooking show.

    If Fox has a shortage of Right wing-nut wackos, it sure isn't obvious. They're bouncing off the walls over there because they haven't been able to convince people that 2 wars, bailouts, the auto industry mess, and the disastrous economy situation didn't occur in 2008 before Obama became President. Maybe if they started saying – "Since January 2008, when Obama took the oath of office..." they could eventually fool a few more feeble-minded folks.

    These "born again deficit hawks" suddenly noticed that the deficit has increased. It doubled in the 8 years that Bush was in office but there was not one word of concern in all that time. Maybe a Bush told them...

    Palin will be just one more well paid propagandist at Fox Spews Channel. She joins the pudgy little fascist...Glenn Beck...and Mike "Willie Horton2" Huckabee in Rupert Murdoch's sleazy campaign to convince Middle America that crazies like the birthers, deathers, and tea baggers are normal human beings. For Palin, it has always been about the $$$$. Giving her regular airtime will definite expose the viewing public to the ex-half term Alaska governor's penchant for gaffes. Any admirer of Sarah Quitter should read a new book called GAME CHANGE that deals with the 2008 campaign. Sarah was so clueless on foreign policy and history...the McCain staff had to educate Palin prior to the VP debate. Steve Schmidt, McCain's campaign manager, said that Governor Palin did not know why there was a North and a South Korea. She repeatedly pronounced Biden's name as O'Biden...as in Obama...which was the reason why she asked Biden: Can I call you Joe? This right wing wacko was NOT qualified to be a heart beat away from the presidency in 2008...and NOTHING has changed since!

    How funny!!! What other network would have her as a contributor other than Fake News. First, she needs to learn how to speak correctly, before she tries to contibute anything.

    It better be carefully scripted so she doesn't forget her lines. Oh wait it's FOX news...they just say the same thing over an over again...on every show...no matter who the speaker is. I guess she'll be OK there.

    Palin on Fox? Who could have imagined that?

    Vacuous and ignorant and they call her a 'contributor'? Whatever. She'll be high art for the fox crowd who normally consider something on par with wheel of fortune as a cerebral event.

    Whoa...who could EVER have thought that FOX, of all people, would hire someone as vapid and contrived as Palin? I am glad that the Republicans have put their stock into the finest sociopathic god nut I think has ever existed. The scary thing is that people actually think she is the future of right politik.. Yikes.

    Oh dear god...just when I thought FOX news couldn't get any more "wing-nutty" they hire Sarah Palin the Wonder-Quitter.
    This woman is a loon but I'll be darned if I can't help but watch the trainwreck that is her career spiral down and down.

    This is no surprise that she would be on Foxx with the rest of her hateful talking buddies. Foxx is about the only network that will carry her remarks, everybody else has a little more class than that!
