WASHINGTON – After months of relative quiet, Sarah Palin broke back into the political scene with an inflammatory column calling for the impeachment of President Barack Obama. Pundits are calling the move “a shrewd ploy to drum up interest,” noting that Palin’s outlandish views could potentially land her a Fox News show.
“I’m picturing a female Glenn Beck, but with a hot folksy librarian thing going on,” said an anonymous source within the network.
The former Alaska governor and vice presidential hopeful accused President Obama of a “purposeful dereliction of duty,” and tried to compare his presidency to the plight of battered women.
“Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president,” wrote Palin. “His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ‘no mas.’ “
Despite the backlash from her column, her views have been well received by the majority of Fox viewers. Palin has released a follow-up statement saying that it’s “about time” that Fox offered her a primetime TV show.
“I just don’t know what the heck else I have to do to prove myself,” said the ex-governor. “I’m basically a more attractive, more approachable version of Ann Coulter.
“Everything Fox has told me to say, I’ve said. I think it’s high time they gave me a TV show where I can parrot their views and actually make a profit.”
