I was starting to forget her, then comes the news:
The relationship between former Alaska governor Sarah Palin and Fox News has ended.
Some folks, like conservative Republican Joe Scarborough this morning, have suggested that, by this move, Fox “News” honcho Roger Ailes (who Scarborough claimed is the de facto head of the GOP) is trying to help the Republican Party become less, uh, stupid.
Hmm. Scarborough’s suggestion has the virtue of confirming four important facts about the American right-wing these days:
1) Fox “News” Channel is an arm of the Republican Party.
2) The Republican Party really has been “the stupid party.”
3) Fox “News” has been peddling stupidity for profit.
4) Peddling stupidity for profit doesn’t necessarily help elect Republicans.
