Blondes are pretty inexpensive to come by in the world of the RWNJ-landia. First Greta, now Gretchen. Roger Ailes is dumping old bags like it's trash day in Manhattan.

Wait...what?

Fox's Roger's Ailes announced that Megyn Kelly is coming to "prime time" at Fox News. There are only three "prime time" slots at Fox and O'Reilly and Hannity are not going anywhere, which leaves Greta.

Greta was disloyal. Her newly re-newed contract is irrelevant. Money is money, but no journalist (particularly one approaching seniority age-wise) wants to be kept off-air. And her contract guarantees she's in primetime on FNC. Greta has no interest of being on Fox Business or Fox Latino - which nobody watches.

Contracts are made to be broken. Greta made a major misfire seeking CNN out when FNC built her to what she is. Then she trashed CNN, prompting CNN to expose her hypocrisy.

That, in turn, was met with the otherwise premature Kelly announcement (with no details even prepared) the very next day after the CNN revelation, hanging Greta out to dry. FNC knew very well what the outcome of the Kelly announcement would be, yet have done absolutely nothing to help Greta save face or support her lone denials of any change coming.

The fact is, contracts are just dollars, but one's career is the end-all, be-all, for someone like Greta.

Megyn Kelly to primetime. Elizabeth Hasselback to Fox & Friends, and Gretchen Carlson to a mid-day show of her own.

Partial-term Governor Palin will be sad to see her number one cheerleader leave prime time.

Indeed.

Good news, America! Her ex-royal highness from the meth capital of Alaska and the poster child for why teaching "abstinence only" to your gaggle of children will just make you a grandparent that much faster has deigned to make words that sound like she will maybe possibly consider thinking about potentially mulling an attempt at getting the folks up thar in Alaska who still can’t get the bitter taste of her stupid out of their mouths — 66-percent still want to drink bleach at the sound of her name to vote for her:

Quote:
Speaking Tuesday on Sean Hannity’s radio show, the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate said it’s an option she’s “considered.”

“I’ve considered it because people have requested me considering it,” she said. “But I’m still waiting to see what the lineup will be and hoping that … there will be some new blood, new energy, not just kind of picking from the same old politicians in the state.”

By "people" of course, she means these Tea Party Leadership Fund folks, aka Alaska teabaggers, who thunked up a plan to save 'Merica from the Democrats by begging Sarah Palin to please be their senator even though rumor has it she is a resident of Arizona now. (But, that's just a minor constitutional detail, like, at the bottom of the legal requirement to be candidate list.)

Of course we all know she won’t actually run, because running for office is almost like working (and then you get elected and get to take ALL THE DAYS OFF because Congress is so super lazy, it's obvious to see why this job holds some appeal for Ms. Palin).

Thanks for the link, Rick. That poll was golden. I think better of Alaskans now.

To put into perspective just how poorly thought of Palin is in Alaska now, consider this: Congress has an 8% favorability rating in the state. But asked whether they have a higher opinion of Congress or Palin, Alaskans pick Congress by a 50/34 margin.
- from california rick's link.

Considering that all True Americans want nothing more than the end of Federal tyranny, this is all just as it should be: electing "incompetent" people to Congress, True Believers willing to do whatever it takes to eliminate Federal tyranny through discrediting, impeding, dismantling and despoiling the Government.
