They are a perfect fit for each other, and this announcement completes the blurring of the line between American journalism, politics, popular culture and professional wrestling.

This is what in wrestling is called a "work." It's a narrative angle crafted well in advance, pre-determining heroes and villains (faces and heels in wrestling speak).

What is interesting is that there is no longer any compunction to think of consequences. I actually believe that Palin does not see joining Fox News as an impediment to the White House. On the contrary. And Fox, with their news room generating huge revenues, really does not pretend to be a news organization any more, and so the offering to Palin was inevitable.

They are cynically betting that it no longer matters to anyone, and they could very well be right. Or to look at it another way, they are betting against the American public being upset at Fox's journalistic integrity, and that being on the tee-vee, in the age of Governor Ahnuld, Jesse Ventura, and Rush Limbaugh, is not a problem for a contender for POTUS.

God now all we need is an ex weight lifter turned actor to run for governor. Or an ex wrestler turned actor to run for governor. Oh wait that all happened. Maybe what america needs now is for ex political journalist to wrestle. I mean I'd pay big bucks to see Wolf Blitzer take on Bill Schneider in a steel cage match.

hmmm, I was thinking John King's chin would be a more potent weapon.

I need to start stockpiling arms and seeds so I can head to the hills when the nukes fly. </tinfoil hat>

I think it works here too. Things like "logic" and "reality" don't matter in the world we're becoming.

I wouldn't count on that. She quit her job in Alaska in order to improve her national exposure. Fox news is giving her that opportunity, and by hiring her as a contributer, like Mike Huckabee, they're going to be able to control which issues she comments on and which she doesn't, essentially steering her public profile. Absent of any huge gaffes, this is a politicians wet dream.

Has the book from her daughter's ex hit the market yet? It's supposed to have some interesting comments about her.
