Sarah Palin Parts Ways With FOX News

After a three-year run as a paid contributor to the nation’s highest-rated cable news channel, Sarah Palin and FOX News have cut ties, according to a source close to the former Alaska governor.

“It’s my understanding that Gov. Palin was offered a contract by FOX, and she decided not to renew the arrangement,” the source close to Palin told RCP. “She remains focused on broadening her message of common-sense conservatism across the country and will be expanding her voice in the national discussion.”

The source declined to say whether Palin would pursue a television contract with another news network, such as CNN….

Yeah. Right. Sure.

Seriously, has there ever been this pampered a loser? From a two-year governor of Alaska and media whore to this cloistered Howard Hughes figure requiring layers of protocol and spokeserpents and bloggers and fictitious business names?

Ain’t We grand?


Also-ran Sarah

Uh, no.

And as she slinks from the national stage, we are reminded of how an unschooled religious fanatic from Alaska, with a minor resume entry as an Anchorage sportscaster and a beauty pageant runner up, could overdose on the feedback between an unprepared ego and an unrelenting echo chamber of celebutard media to produce the Paris Hilton after Paris Hilton but before Kim Kardashian:

In 2010, FOX constructed a studio inside Palin’s Wasilla, Alaska, home — where her husband, Todd, would sometimes act as cameraman and producer during her live television appearances.

Palin’s relationship with FOX appeared to take several rocky turns. In a Facebook post during the Republican convention last August, for instance, the 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee lamented that the news channel had “cancelled all my scheduled interviews tonight.” …

… Quoth the Homer Simpsonesque Marching Morons site Real Clear Politics, a conservative news aggregator now a 51% owned subsidiary of Forbes Media.

That’s “Forbes” as in “Steve ‘Flat Tax’ Forbes” son of dead Malcolm, its founder.

So did Sarah quit or was she let go? Fox has said her contract wasn’t renewed. And so it goes.

wasilla cap!

Not worth much on the collector’s market
