Sarah Palin, radio star? Goshdarnit, now there's a lousy doggone idea

First she got a big fat book deal. Then she was supposedly being courted for TV stardom. Now Sarah Palin could be taking into the airwaves in a different form, as the host of her own radio talk show. "[S]ources say Palin representatives have been quietly testing the waters to see how much interest radio syndicators have for her," reports Inside Radio.

This is, not to put too fine a point on it, a stupid idea. And it's not just that Palin's media-bashing would sit uncomfortably with a career in broadcasting; Rush Limbaugh has managed to make a go of it, even though his 30 million listeners (or however many it really is) make him, by any reasonable measure, a part of the mainstream media he ostensibly loathes.
