Steve Marmel, HuffPo: Palin "about to become as relevant as a fart in a skunk house"


Thank You, Fox News, for Taking Sarah Palin Off My Hands



Steve Marmel

Marmel is a comedian, a writer and a TV producer. It's not as impressive as it sounds.

For her: It's safe, it's warm, and nobody will ask any tough questions. Never again will she be subjected to an unflattering outtake, or be forced to think on her feet to a challenge or unwelcome debate. Her easy and expected critiques of Obama will fall somewhere in between Beck, Ingram, Hannity, Van Susteren and... well, every other right-leaning pundit.

And for her detractors: She's about to become as relevant as a fart in a skunk house. One more voice in a very loud choir where she's not even the lead vocal. She's walled off in a gated community of like minds.

For those of us that have detached from the 24 hour news cycle and get our news from the internet, the only time we'll see her is in funny little snippets where Jon Stewart eviscerates her the way Joel McHale guts Jersey Shore on The Soup.

She is no longer part of my world.

And for that, Fox News, I thank you.

3. I don't think any public figure...
...has ever sparked such strong disgust as Sara Palin.

I could care less about her politics. There are plenty of conservatives out there, and seriously--it's
not the beliefs that bother me. It's that someone so ridiculously stupid and idiotic is actually given
attention and air time.

It's like the biggest, undeserving airhead in your high school--was suddenly on television every day.

She seethes stupidity--and she is an embarrassment.

4. oh, don't worry about that. Her clips will be repeated endlessly on all the cablenews nets
you can't run a 24 hr news cycle using only REAL news, (apparently) That would be hard work from real journalists and we certainly don't want to pay for that. Or hire any journalists. Free clips from Fox are so much better.
