This is a bit of a head-scratcher. FOX News announced yesterday that the first installment of “Real American Stories,” a series hosted by famous wingnut journalist and hillbilly grifter Sarah Palin, will air on April 1, and feature interviews with Toby Keith, Jack Welch, and uh, LL Cool J.
Sure, two of those guys make sense, but LL Cool J? What? Why on Earth would LL freakin’ Cool J be going onto Sarah Palin’s show? Well it turns out he’s not. According to LL’s Twitter, the rapper recorded an interview with FOX in 2008, and the “news channel” is re-appropriating it for Palin’s show.
Shocking! Sarah Palin is officially the new Jay Leno!
We can’t even wait to see how the “lamestream” media covers this one. They’ll probably call Palin out for deception and laziness. Or, more likely, they’ll just say it wasn’t clear what the format was, and even though it’s implicit in the ad that Palin will actually be interviewing people for her show — ya know, doing work – that that wasn’t necessarily the case. So more free passes for Sarah Palin, more excuses, more opportunity for America’s preeminent quitter to play the victim card.
