No matter what you think of his ideas, there is no question that Roger Ailes is a savvy guy. He doesn't make many missteps. He's going to let Sarah Palin into his stable of Stars at Fox News. This says a lot about what he thinks about her. It says she has more going for her than most people think. It doesn't say she isn't a polarizing and controversial figure in American culture but it says he, at least, believes she can hold her own in the big leagues. There are a lot of major figures on the Right that you never see on Fox News. You don't see Victor Hanson Davis or Deal Hudson on Fox News a lot and these guys have huge followings and a lot to say about almost everything. These exceptions are never simply oversights.
I'm surprised. We'll see how it goes. Sometimes you see people on Fox a lot for awhile and then they disappear.
