It's all typically mysterious, this splashy divorce, although a "source close to the former Alaska governor" tells RealClearPolitics that "It’s my understanding that Gov. Palin was offered a contract by Fox, and she decided not to renew the arrangement," which strongly suggests that Fox fired her.
Whither the former vice-presidential candidate, state chief executive, roguish tactician, reality television star and Revolutionary War historian? "The source declined to say whether Palin would pursue a television contract with another news network [i.e., a news network]," which strongly suggests that Palin is pursuing a network alternative.
Yet this boy can dream, enticed as he is by Palin's come-hither ankle-showing, per the source:
She remains focused on broadening her message of common-sense conservatism across the country and will be expanding her voice in the national discussion.
Any desperately hopeful reading of those Cocoa Puff leaves would suggest that she is at least toying with the magnificent notion of reentering politics. There may be some undiscovered degree of pseudoconservative madness yet to be exploited, and who better to unearth its squalor than the fetchingly fatuous Sarah Palin?
