Apparently Fox News can’t stand Sarah Palin, either.
As of June 1, according to Politico, the half-term former Alaska Governor and candidate for Vice President is no longer working for Fox as a commentator/analyst/resident incompetent. Fox told Politico that Palin and the network and Palin “had amicably parted ways.” This is the second time Fox has let Palin go. She was also released in 2011.
Unfortunately, it does appear that Palin will still make guest appearances on Fox News from time to time. So if you were planning on her being silenced and none of us having to endure her imbecilic inanity, no such luck. Damn!
Palin was let go from Fox in 2011, and was only offered a job in the first place, according to Fox News chief Roger Ailes for this simple reason:
“I hired Sarah Palin because she was hot and got ratings.”
But in recent months Palin has clashed on-air with some of Fox’s more valuable hosts, namely Megyn Kelly, whom Palin indirectly accused of re-victimizing two of Josh Duggar’s sisters, Jill and Jess, who Josh molested while they slept. The State of Arkansas is still investigating that case, without the assistance of the Duggar family.
Palin, you no doubt recall, has repeatedly said some of the stupidest, most incoherent things ever uttered by a public official, including these gems:
“Mr. President, the only thing that stops a bad guy with a nuke is a good guy with a nuke.” (Speaking about Russian President Vladimir Putin and President Obama.)
“‘Refudiate,’ ‘misunderestimate,’ ‘wee-wee’d up.’ English is a living language. Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Got to celebrate it!’” (After being ridiculed for creating a word that does exist: Refudiate.)
“He who warned, uh, the British that they weren’t gonna be takin’ away our arms, uh, by ringing those bells, and um, makin’ sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed.” (Speaking about Paul Revere.)
“But obviously, we’ve got to stand with our North Korean allies.” (Aren’t our allies in South Korea?)
“The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s ‘death panel’ so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their ‘level of productivity in society,’ whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.” (On health care reform.)
Yes, good old Sarah is great for laughs, and rest assured she will still stick her head out of her gopher hole from time to time to regale us all with some of her moronic messages.
