Clear Channel Passed on Palin Radio Show

My own sources say much what they said when asked about a TV show for Sarah Palin: Don’t think so. While you might assume Palin would be a better fit for conservative radio than the less partisan world of syndicated broadcast TV, my sources say the country’s biggest radio conglomerate, Clear Channel, has already passed on her.

Yeah, radio would have been a great fit for Palin. You couldn’t see her but you could hear her. She’s a looker people, not a talker. We recommend silent films maybe or miming. Something where abnegating is an asset – like a nicotine patch spokesperson.

A miming nicotine patch spokesperson! That’s it. For special needs children.
