Sarah Palin, half-term pundit, is still looking for a jobGod knows I love her, but we can’t have that kinda crazy around here. ~ Glenn Beck
Glenn Beck says that when he heard Sarah Palin was leaving Fox News, he couldn’t have been happier.
When Beck was fired from Fox back in the middle of 2011, many wondered if he’d ever recover from that mighty slap in the face by Roger Ailes. They aren’t wondering any longer, however. The answer is “No, he didn’t recover…yet.”
With the same fate befalling Sarah Palin, many speculated Beck would unite with the Alaskan ice queen, taking her into his fold and giving Palin her own show on his latest venture, TheBlaze.
TheBlaze TV is Beck’s internet television network (formerly GBTV—which name was abandoned by Beck for sounding too gay.)
“I like the sound of it,” said Beck at first (TheRogue, Sarah Palin, you know, not GBTV) as he tossed around the idea of TheBlaze going rogue.
“Sarah might just be the drug we need to pump even more life into the veins of TheBlaze,” Beck answered when asked what exactly Sarah could bring to the show.
“Sarah Palin puts the “pug” in pugnacious,” said a fired-up Beck.
But almost as quickly as he entertained the thought of bringing Sarah on board, he reneged on the potential deal, resulting in a collective sigh of relief by everyone associated with Beck’s internet television show.
“Some people say I’m crazy,” said Beck, “but I’m not that crazy.”
Palin was asked about Beck’s unofficial offer to give her a shot on TheBlaze TV network. She responded in her usual feigned interest voice “Beck who? Oh, Glenn Beck. Is he still around?”
