I guess even FOX NEWS finally realized that the quitter from Alaska was more hype than substance.

....and good riddance!

While we the people speculate that many politicians are using the public forum as a means for personal profit, she was not very subtle about it.

Those on this forum that were suckered by her, praised her stands, and defended her missteps should bow their heads in shame, yep, I'm thinking about you Gunslinger.

Despite her boasting, she demonstrated on camera that she wasn't much of a hunter, but she did manage to look good in a pair of chest waders.  :p

I do.  Not as much as I read BBC or even CNN -- but more and more.  No media is perfectly objective... but at least Al Jazeera doesn't treat "celebrity gossips" as top news.

To me, Al Jazeera's reporting is quite professional -- in all the ways that Fox isn't.  I wonder why you smear it in your Post #4? After all, the idiocy in this case is completely home grown.

Al Jazeera is not the mouthpiece of Al Qaueda that many wing nuts seem to think it is, but it's also far from an objective source of information. It's not as one sided as sources like Newsmax, Washington Times, The Blaze or Worldnet Daily but it's more on par with sources like the New York Post in that it publishes articles and opeds where the information has not been fully vetted.  And I was joking about Palin being offered a job there. Figured that was obvious.

Right wingers successfully presented her to America as a leader of the GOP.

For that, the Democratic party will be eternally grateful.

Got me worried for a while about the state of near half of our citizenry!  Whew...  Will the next candidate be a truly national leader -- or yet another nut job?

Yes, I knew it was meant to be silly...  What bugged me was an under tone of mockery that Al Jazeera didn't deserve.  Perhaps I was being unfair to you... but I think too many Americans are too ready to mock anything with Muslim-sounding names -- regardless.  You know, like how some people like to mock the name "Hussein"...

Sounds like you made some assumptions you shouldn't have.
