Just What the Country Needs: Sarah Palin on the Radio

Inside Radio, an industry website, is reporting that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is quietly investigating a future in—what else?—talk radio.

Of course. It's a perfect job for Palin.

The hours are good, and you don't need to know anything to be a huge success. Just look at Rush, Sean, Michael Savage, and the rest of the AM crowd.

Here's the report:
Alaska’s now former Governor is coy about her future political plans, but radio is at least one option she’s leaving on the table. While not exactly shopping the GOP’s 2008 vice presidential candidate, sources say Palin representatives have been quietly testing the waters to see how much interest radio syndicators have for her.

Sources say Palin hasn’t committed to radio either, but rather it could be a possible next step for her. It isn’t unusual for a defeated national candidate to turn to radio. Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee’s short-form commentaries air on more than 400 stations via Citadel Media. He remains among the names circulated for a potential presidential run in 2012.

Coming to radio would be an ironic twist for Palin, whose position on the media is pretty clear. “Quick making things up,” she told reporters in her final speech as Governor last week.

How could anyone, even far-righties, stand to listen that word salad shooter every day?

You kidding? I'd be a regular listener.

No, not kidding. I'm not sure which is more grating, her obvious ignorance and incoherence, or her voice.

Did you watch her interviews with Couric and Gibson? They weren't hardball. Yet she came off as a schoolkid who forgot her homework, at best.

Palin as the face of the GOP is just fine with me. She has very little credibility and deservedly so.
