I have avoided talking about the semi-tragic and what-the-hell-took-so-long split between Sarah Palin and Fox news.
Cannibals with a common enemy will be friends for a while but each of them knows that one of them is going to end up in a pot with some cumin and paprika. How long the truce lasts depends on how long the enemy does. If the enemy lasts long enough they’ll turn on each other.
Sarah will make Fox part of the conspiracy and make really scared people hunker down and move to Alaska. Which, in my mind, is not a bad idea. If any of our Palin supporters in Texas want to go, I’ll personally transport them as far as the Arizona state line.
Well, today somebody with too much free time on their hands has figured out that Fox News paid Palin $15 a word for her appearances on Fox and 111 of those words were “Amen.” Lazy researchers didn’t count how many “you betchas” or Katie Couric snarks were included.
I figure that this, too, is a good thing. That’s a lotta wasted money at Fox and Palin won’t do anything constructive with the money because she’s not too terribly bright. Did you notice that?
Thanks to everybody for the heads up.
