"She is one of the most talked about and politically polarizing figures in the country," said Bill Shine, the network's executive vice president of programming. "First off, we hope she brings that."
Shine said he was not concerned that Palin would make false assertions on the air.
"Along the way, we'll talk to her and have conversations and I'm sure everything will be fine," he said, adding that the expectations that Palin will utter something controversial will likely drive viewership. "In the end, that's probably going to help us in that that's what people will want to watch."
As I said before, it's a perfect match - the pretend politician who derides 'mainstream media' now working for the pretend news channel who derides 'mainstream media'....even though they are part and parcel of it.
Someone recently said: There seems to be a pattern with Sarah Palin. When she doesn’t have an answer she says “all of them.”
I think he generally nailed it.....but wait! Apparently Sarah believes herself to actually be some sort of expert on national security matters. From her love-in with Hannity:
I’d like to talk to him [Obama] about the national security issues, though, and what I believe the rules of war should be. And I would like to recommend to him that he show a little bit more passion in this war on terror so that we can trust that perhaps, the steps that he takes that seem to me to be so hesitant, to make decisions when it comes to our national security, that um, we can at least trust that he’s really being deliberative.
Listen...our standards for national political office revolve around pandering to your party and being telegenic...but even by these abysmal standards, Palin is astronomically out of her league. It embarrasses me to be an American when she is plastered all over the corporate info-tainment channels, much less when she is hired by one.
