It finally happened. The wedding that has been long awaited. Sarah Palin, the former of Alaska has signed on as a contributor to the Fox News Channel.
The network confirmed that Ms. Palin will appear on the network’s programming on a regular basis as part of a multi-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed. Ms. Palin will not have her own regular program, one person familiar with the deal said, though she will host an occasional series that will run on the network from time to time.
This person would not elaborate, but the network does have a precedent for such a series. Oliver L. North is the host of an occasionally running documentary series on the military called “War Stories.”
She's in good company, with many other Fox Newsers having similarly checkered pasts. All is forgiven if you're a conservative. Oliver North sold weapons to Iran, Dick Morris has an affinity towards hookers and toe-sucking and other bizarre notions. Mark Furhman destroyed the first O.J. case and was hired on. Karl Rove, with subpoenas and investigations into his role in the U.S. Attorneys scandal lingering, gets a fat contract. The list goes on and on.
Palin, who quit her job as Governor of Alaska, fits right in to the right wing stable of wingnuts Roger Ailes has assembled. I wonder why it took so long.
