Great deal for Fox News and Murdoch. Maybe this will be good for Palin, depending on her own private aspirations.
Personally, unless she talks about local and state government operations (she has served the public, after all), I have little interest in her contributions because I think they will tend to contribute incoherent rambling, and most news viewers snore at the thought of local-state-national government interactions. The news viewers will want whining and complaining, because that is what sells, and because of that, I think whatever political science use she has goes bye-bye. Liberals will complain about her contributions, but frankly, most liberal news contributors for the 24 hour networks are blowhards as well. That is just what sells for the public: whining and complaining. Doesn't matter what political leaning you have. Most people just don't like a political science workshop.

The woman is obviously not knowledgeable enough to most of our liking (I am a Romney man). But the fact is she is not the idiot some claim. She is an average person who was able to perform as a mayor and govenor. And the very sad fact is, President Obama is proving more and more every day that high eduacation and eloquent grammar do not guarantee the ability to successfully run a nation. Obviously there are more common people who could do a better job.
We have far greater problems than Sarah Palin.

If people would stop voting based on partisan lines and based on charisma, better candidates would get into congress. Supporting her just because she annoys your rivals is not very smart.
Hopefully this won't dim down the ratings of Comedy Central and other comedy networks.
