2008 Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin is joining Fox News as a contributor, the news channel announced Monday.
The former Alaska governor, whose book, Going Rogue: An American Life, became a bestseller weeks before it was released and remains No. 2 on the New York Times bestseller list, has signed a multi-year deal to offer her political commentary and analysis across all Fox News platforms, including Fox Business Channel, FoxNews.com and Fox News Radio.
Whatever Palin's future gig may or may not be, joining Fox News makes perfect sense now. The exposure only helps her whether she runs for president or goes into broadcasting full time. In the mean time, she'll get plenty of exposure. She'll continue to stay relevant. She'll be on a network that doesn't have contempt for her and it's a network who's audience dwarfs all others.
This is what we refer to as a no brainer.
