Pictured you mean and I pictured you bold

Sarah Palin has left the building.

Buh-bye.

Oh, I’m sure the half-guv will find some other way to lodge herself somewhere in the media’s eye, but she has diminished herself from log to speck, and Roger Ailes has figured out that specks just don’t produce enough ratings to justify the time or money. Perhaps she’ll return as a guest on one of his Fox-y shows, but her days of cashing a regular check from Murdoch are over.

Weep not for her, of course, as she and the rest of her clan have made millions in the years since she winked her way into our nation’s consciousness, and, as Rick Perlstein (among others) has demonstrated, there are plenty on the right willing to throw money at the those adept at stoking their furies. She’ll be fine.

And the rest of us? Oh, hush, we’ll be fine, too.

my doomcast is that like most lottery winners she will have been bankrupt and remarried when she next returns to the boobtube.

Or it could go the other way and she could, brace yourself, have her own channel. Before you know it, the Sarah Palin Network (SPN, natch) will be competing for Faux News viewers…

I just want her to go away. Fly away, little Sarah! Live free! And leave the rest of us alone!
