"I don't think it can be that much beyond her core support base anyway, so who cares? "
She should work for NPR...

Reckon she's not your sort of folks then. She's my sort of folks, though - intellectual curiosity or not - and I wish her all the best*.
My in-laws (Idaho) worship her so I do know a lot of people who like her a lot and I can respect that.

That we are in agreement!

Re: Sarah Palin to take new job as Fox pundit

Right now there is a battle among key conservatives on who is the most fiscally conservative. Based on her record or lack thereof, she has ben able to take the forefront in this movement. I think whoever can paint themselves as the most truly fiscally conservative candidate (meaning cutting everything but the military budget) will win the GOP nomination and 2012 (and possibly the Presidency). in my view it is not a remote possibility that Palin becomes President. If this becomes more likely I will be searching for one-ways flights to CH.

Let's not get too negative.

Unless something highly unexpected happens, Obama will win a second term. So if Palin has an chance at all, then it must be in the election after that. A lot can happen until then, and I am sure a lot will.

Yes alot can happen but the health care bill is hugely unpopular and there will be electoral repercussions when it is passed.

I don't know why but I have the feeling Obama is going to do only one term. I don't think he ever thought he could be elected and I am not sure it is really what he wanted.
I also think the democratic electorate will be quite unmotivated as they feel betrayed while the republicans will be much more aggressive this time.

Fox last night confirmed it had taken Palin on board as a pundit to appear on several of the cable news channel's shows. The deal will give the former vice-presidential candidate an invaluable television platform, beaming her into millions of potential voters' homes.

thats a good fit actually ... Palin and Fox both deserve each other.

Any politician who hires her is probably beyond help anyway.

So let the dumb advise the even dumber while the rest of us watch and laugh.

Re: Sarah Palin to take new job as Fox pundit

I believe in hiring Sarah Palin as a News Analysist, we will see Fox Television receiving, in the not too distant future, an award for Outstanding service to the international community. I think Fox have been very courageous in hiring such an eminant personality.

Think a little bit, Sarah knows diddly squat, this is going to become even more evident in the weeks and months to come thus removing any element of doubt of her capabilities and thus any other chances of her winning a Republican nomination to stand as President, let alone being elected.

Sarah P is a lightweight and this is not going to change quickly. My guess is she will last no more than a year with Fox, an initial blaze of publicity, followed by a slow but steady decline in to oblivion.

I think Fox are very far sighted and have pulled off an extra ordianry coup.

Re: Sarah Palin to take new job as Fox pundit

Wasn't it fox news that had to legally define themselves as an entertainment program and not a news organisation to escape some lawsuit?

Something to do with baby milk, investigative reporters and sponsors who didn't like the results of an investigation.

I can't find a link but I'm pretty sure I didn't imagine it, could be another channel.

Re: Sarah Palin to take new job as Fox pundit

I wonder how she replies to the question

1) What do you think of obama's pollicies till now?
2) Who is your role model?
3) Any plans for a future hollywood or rap career?
4) Should we start another war with Yemen?

1)...
She will ask the questions now...
And if her questions will be as clear as the answers she gave during her campaign interviews, then America has nothing to fear... Or has it?...
