The New York Times is reporting today that Sarah Palin has been hired by Fox News to be a regular contributor to the cable news channel.
Uh, didn’t she work there already? This is like reporting “Dog bites man.”
Maybe she didn’t get paid for it previously, but Palin has certainly filled that role ever since she stepped into the national spotlight as John McCain’s running mate in summer 2008.
As we’ve already made ourselves feel dirty by mentioning the fact-challenged former Alaska governor, a McCain aide also told 60 Minutes on CBS that Palin felt her vice presidential candidacy was “God’s plan.” Given the election’s outcome, we assume the deity’s plan was to teach Palin some humility.
Better luck next time, big guy.
