If it weren’t for the fact that Half-Governor Sarah Palin is holding onto her Fox “News” gig by her fingertips, there would be no reason for News Hounds to even cover Her Irrelevancy anymore. However, I suspect that long after she’s dumped by the network following November’s election, if not before, Sarah Palin will still be a punch line on comedy shows. Last night Jon Stewart tried to make sense of Palin co-hosting The Today Show.

But yes, Palin was bad- most politicos who make the jump to broadcasting are, it’s an entirely different animal. Palin didn’t do well, even for that. But that’s really all we can hold on her.
Save any outrage about politics or rhetoric for people who are consistently far enough out of line that they need need removed, or at least demoted to a panelist- like Limbaugh and Bolling.
(The use of “it” was deliberate. Until I see Ann Coulter’s longform birth certificate, I’m not convinced that Ann is female. I don’t care how many men have had sex with Ann—and are actually willing to admit to it—I’m not convinced that Ann isn’t a real-life Hedwig, of the “Angry Inch” fame. For those who’ve seen that movie, John Cameron Mitchell looks more like a real woman in the film than Ann Coutler does in real life. I’ll describe each contestant on every season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” with female pronouns with no problem but Ann Coulter is less female than even the newbiest of drag queens.)
