Fox again proves itself to be little more than a propoganda arm for the Republican Party. Bill-O and Hume celebrate Sister Sarah joining their ranks at ClusterFox and hope the move helps advance her political career.

From Think Progress--O’Reilly excited that Palin will be able to use Fox News to help her political career.

O’REILLY: Right. Okay, now let’s get to Sarah Palin signing on with FNC. Smart move I think for the governor. Do you agree?

HUME: Well, she’ll certainly — is somebody that our audience will be interested in. The whole country is interested in her. The fascination with her, the preoccupation with her is something to behold. And it has endured, you know, long past the end of the campaign. Still endures to this day. So she will certainly be an asset to the FOX News Channel in the sense of attracting an audience. And that will give her a forum where she can say what she thinks. And it’ll give her a chance to perhaps polish her articulation of issues.

O’REILLY: There’s no doubt that she thinks she has a political future. Do you agree on the national level?

HUME: I think she does.


HUME: I think she does, Bill. She certainly has a tremendous future within the Republican party in the sense that she is a tremendous draw. She’s a great fundraiser. She wants to get beyond that, though, and appeal to a broader electorate. I think the electorate will need to be assured by her on a number of counts. I think that if — she will need because she’s from outside of Washington and proved occasionally to be out of touch with issues to some extent, she will need to establish herself as really conversant with a great many national and international issues.

O’REILLY: Right.

HUME: And to come across more knowledgeable on those issues.

O’REILLY: And she can do that here.

HUME: Well, I certainly — this will certainly give her a place where she can discuss those issues (INAUDIBLE).
