    Oh we are soooo close to the dream team: Beck and Palin- Dumb and Dumber!
    So does anyone still believe the fair and balance in Fox Noise?

    and anyone's surprised??? i don't think so. she's been working toward this from the get-go. Good news about that is that only the people that watch Fox will see her............and that's okay with me. She's a non-issue as a good candidate, and hopefully that's where it will go.

    My only question: Why did it take so long for Fox to come up with the millions it undoubtedly has taken to get Palin on board? Her legions of stupid, stupid admirers can hardly wait. Who will write her commentary?The woman is making hay while her sun shines. Can you blame her? Like P.T. Barnum, she can't believe her lucky stars that there are so many incredibly ignorant Americans willing to watch and listen. God Bless America. We need all the help we can get.

    This is right where she belongs, along with the other right wing pundits like Rush LImbaugh and Glen Beck and their ilk.

    When was the last time you saw a commentator become a presidential candidate? Good luck Palin (tongue in cheek)

    Well, I would have been more shocked if shoe signed to be on MSNBC. I thought she was already part of Fox News. She does need something to do since Citizen Palin doesn't have a job.

    January 11, 2010 03:14 pm at 3:14 pm |

    Palin on FOX???? What a shocker! NOT.

    This should end all speculation on whether FOX is just a mouthpiece for the rethuglican party....adding a rethuglican political candidate to their offerings couldn't be more clear evidence.

    contributor on the network? What exactly is she going to contribute?

    Some advice. Stop watching TV and boycott all the products that advertise on Fox.

    Woaw! Finally, Dumb goes on the Republican Network. That's a marriage made in hell – perfect match.

    I hope she becomes more extremist, more polarized and above all .... dumber! The Palin-2012-Show will be fun to watch. Hahahaha!

    My guess is that Sarah is the new CEO.

    No surprise. She'll fit right in with all the rest of the extremist nutballs on the "pretend to be a news network".

    You mean she didn't already have a deal? But what about the coverage?

    Another reason NOT to watch or listen to FOX.

    Fantastic opportunity for her to showcase her competence regarding foreign and domestic policy, her efficacy concerning administration and her diversity as a Patriotic American. This way the world will know how perfect she is for President. Palin 2012!

    Does this mean you will stop covering her every move?

    Wow, sure took Fox awhile to lasso this philly. Good fit for both – another fear and distort groupie to go along with all those straight-speaking "Real Americans" over there.

    She's entertaining, contraversial, and carries more baggage than mail train. Watching her on FOX will be as much fun as a public stoning.

    She is an embarrassment to the GOP. I'm not surprise she will be working with Fox, which is stacked with the most extreme right wing nutballs on the planet. She will fit right in, providing entertainment disguised as unbiased news. Her and Beck can come up with conspiracy theories together.

    She is all talk and no content. She has no qualification or capability which places her ahead of any other GOP hopeful. There are many better GOP options. She is only getting attention to counter the equal opportunity push. Seriously, this woman is getting support only because she is a woman, which is NO DIFFERENT than people voting for Obama because he is black.

    It is sickening to watch the GOP lower itself to these standards, and let the party be filled with, and surrounded by such trash. When will the GOP shed these idiots off and get back to real values? The party is too busy being the anti-democratic party, and has no time left to be what is once was..

    This stuff is what forced me to leave the GOP and go independent. I KNOW I am not alone. The last election proves it. The Dems did not win last election. The GOP lost. Fact the truth so we can move on to better things. There is hope, but all of this dog and pony show needs to end.

    Where is the real GOP?

    So they are giving me another reason not to watch FOX. I will see the highlights of this debacle on The Daily Show.
