ANCHORAGE, AK – Sarah Palin has signed on to be a Fox News correspondent. She claims her lack of credentials will help her connect to the “Real America.”
Sarah Palin, and apparently the executives of Fox News, believe her approachable “down homey” attitude will help her relate to viewers. The former Governor and two time city council member will be a political commentator and analyst on all the Fox News channels.
Palin said yesterday “What America needs right now isn’t more fancy schmancy theories but a little Common Sense. People tired of all these egghead yahoos with their ‘Research’ telling them what to do. I’m not like those university elitists. I’m a real person. From the Real America. Where people know their neighbors and pull themselves up by their bootstraps.
“My lack of credentials is my credentials. I don’t have any of that fancy book learning that would alienate me from the common man.”
Indeed Palin’s approachable image may be why she has been offered to host episodes of Fox’s “Real American Stories.” The series which debuts later this year will chronicle the lives of Americans who have overcome adversity.
Sarah Palin has already recorded footage with several families for the series. For the show she met with nearly a dozen destitute families who were facing hardship. Posing outside of ramshackle homes she talked about the American dream and the evils of socialism to starving children.
After a Cuban family from Florida told their story of hardship and loss Palin asked “But that’s okay ’cause this is America! With a little hard work and a ‘You Betcha’ attitude you can get out of this mess.” The Sosa family looked confused for a long moment and then began crying.
Fox News is expected to edit together these pieces to be inspirational testaments to conservative ideology.
