Never underestimate the cynicism and silliness of Fox News, which today announced the hiring of its newest and lightest political commentator, the half-term former Alaska governor, one Sarah Palin.
Despite abundant evidence of Palin's incompetence and general ignorance on matters large and small, Fox News couldn't resist. Of course not. With her dazzling smile and "you betcha" spirit, Fox viewers will be swept away by the newest Empty Head on the Right.
All of which provides more proof that Fox isn't (and never was) a serious news operation. Clearly, Fox News is more interested in pumping up the Republican Party than anything else.
In honor of this occasion, our friends at Talking Points Memo have complied a highlight reel of Sarah moments of the past year. The amazing video is here.
