Shocker: Sarah Palin to Join Fox News

Why did this take so long?

Sarah Palin will finally have the opportunity to share her views. From NYT Media Decoder:

Former Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska has signed on as a contributor to the Fox News Channel.

The network confirmed that Ms. Palin will appear on the network’s programming on a regular basis as part of a multi-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.

(It's probably a totally reasonable amount of money though.)

Many suspected that when Ms. Palin retired as the governor of Alaska last summer she was doing so to pursue some sort of career in television. The Fox News deal, however, would not seem to be all encompassing, and would appear to give her room for other pursuits, as well.

Like make even more money headlining tea bagger events like the upcomingNational Tea Party Convention, where everyday, ordinary Americans will pay $549 to help save other everyday, ordinary Americans from the scourge of health insurance.
