11 January 2010

In what can only be labeled as a stunning yet entirely predictable turn of events, former Vice Presidential candidate and "chief common sense haver" Sarah Palin has stepped down from her new role as Fox News contributor - only minutes after inking the deal.

Wow, too crazy for Fox News? That's gotta be a first.

This may cause some life/career issues for Tina Fey.

This is like when peanut butter finally met chocolate, except the chocolate is that cheap, fakey "chocolate-flavored" stuff and the peanut butter is just an old bag of Circus Peanuts that's been left out in the sun.

Is it wrong of me that that sounds kind of good?

Has anyone yet invented chocolate-dipped Circus Peanuts?

And, aren't Circus Peanuts more of a banana flavor?

All these are important questions I think can be best explored by the probing investigative team at Fox News.

Circus Peanuts : peanuts ::
A) candy corn : corn
B) Taco Bell : Tex-Mex
C) Fox News : journalism
D) all of the above

Seriously, though - that Kos piece seemed just like straight-up sarcasm. Did She Who Cannot Be Named or Understood actually quit the gig right after signing it?

Days like this really make me believe in Clarence from It's A Wonderful Life.

DailyKos is the only site that says that she's quit. . .I am suspicious.

The DailyKos "article" was suspicious if only because the article linked in it led directly back to that blog post.

I thought the DailyKos article was suspicious because that kind of low-rent straightfaced wish-fulfillment-as-parody-as-diary-entry thing was classic annoying Kos dreck, but I can understand (and kind of envy) folks who haven't already fine-tuned that particular detection system.

In related news, Jon Stewart's writers are having a party.

She's never going away, is she? We're the same age so I'm going to have to listen to that woman for the rest of my life.

I've had this exact same thought, octothorpe. I feel like someone I hated in high school has found me on Facebook*, and decided to destroy my country in revenge.

*I'm not actually on Facebook. The nation is safe from evil former beauty queens from MY high school, anyway.

I had to go look it up. Sounds like a friends with benefits kind of deal.

I celebrate this news. CELEBRATE IT I SAY. I would have been willing to fund her TV show out of my own pocket. She belongs on TV- it keeps her away from having any real power. And no, I don't count being a talking-head as having real power.

I agree, teeps, but I would've said that more confidently a few years ago, when Limbaugh was just the guy who dissed Chelsea Clinton and Beck was still doing morning zoo shows.
