Sarah Palin Jokes Officially Stale, Now She Goes Off to FNC

In the grand tradition of liars and ethically challenged self-proclaimed patriots (see: hiding character flaws in a flag) of G. Gordan Liddy and Oliver North, Sarah Palin is now going to be on the morally better-than Fox News Channel. Reports say that she will not be having her own show (see: quitter) but will be a regular contributor.

It dawned on us yesterday the thing that is really annoying about Sarah Palin not going away to let us forget about her, is that the quips about her are no longer fun. Since anybody can and does write them, tweet them or retweet them…meh.

You heard it here first: the wolf shooter, moose eater is now a shark jumper.
