Major Radio Syndicator Turns Palin Down

A broadcast industry publication reports that Clear Channel has decided that it does not want to hire former Alaska governor and failed vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin as a radio talk show host.

Broadcasting and Cable says CC feared that Palin couldn't sustain a full three hours on the air daily. Perhaps the giant radio distributor feared that, like her term of office, Palin might quit half way through her shift.

It's like this maybe:

Star HS quarterback is approached by Big Unversity, offered a scholarship. Said QB shows up in January of senior year, at U, says "I quit that silly HS, I'm ready NOW!"

U says: "huh?'

Perhaps Clear thot: tainted goods, and lightweight, maybe even what an idiot.

With such brillant oration as;

"And getting up here I say it is the best road trip in America soaring through nature's finest show. Denali, the great one, soaring under the midnight sun. And then the extremes. In the winter time it's the frozen road that is competing with the view of ice fogged frigid beauty, the cold though, doesn't it split the Cheechakos from the Sourdoughs?

And then in the summertime such extreme summertime about a hundred and fifty degrees hotter than just some months ago, than just some months from now, with fireweed blooming along the frost heaves and merciless rivers that are rushing and carving and reminding us that here, Mother Nature wins. It is as throughout all Alaska that big wild good life teeming along the road that is north to the future."

Why wouldn't they want her on the radio?

Well not that I like Clear Channel, but good for them. They gained a point in my book for that decision. Don't you think she's destined for FOX though?

Ouch! It must hurt to be turned down for a job that even Glen Beck can do.

I see Palin doing little ditties on FOX or starting some para political group to tap into the Republican evangelical groups.
