Palin signs “multi-year” deal to become Fox analyst

posted at 1:36 pm on January 11, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

Sarah Palin’s supporters have reason to cheer, and perhaps lament, the media news leaked to the New York Times this morning.  The former governor and VP candidate will become a Fox News analyst, signing a multi-year deal for appearances as a political pundit.  That gives Palin an even larger stage, but might mean that she’s looking at a longer game plan than some may want:

The network confirmed that Ms. Palin will appear on the network’s programming on a regular basis as part of a multi-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Ms. Palin will not have her own regular program, one person familiar with the deal said, though she will host an occasional series that will run on the network from time to time. This person would not elaborate, but the network does have a precedent for such a series. Oliver L. North is the host of an occasionally running documentary series on the military called “War Stories.”

It’s a good move on Palin’s part.  She gets more national exposure, which never hurts anyone’s political ambitions.  Fox News may be already attracting her core supporters, but her appearances will receive a great deal of scrutiny from the Left as well.  The regular to-and-fro on politics will allow Palin to expand her credibility and build a broader base of support for her political ambitions.

However, a multi-year deal may mean that Palin will wait to run for higher office.  She could either go for the Senate or the presidency next, but either way, she’d have to start building a campaign no later than a year from now.   Media outlets generally cut off analysts when they start building campaigns to avoid the necessity of giving opponents free air time for responses.  A multiyear deal doesn’t preclude the possibility of entering into a campaign in 2011, but it indicates that Palin isn’t yet envisioning such a step.

That’s not necessarily a bad idea anyway.  Palin is young and has plenty of opportunity to run for office, with 2016, 2020, and 2024 all being very realistic for her in terms of presidential campaigns.  The Fox appearances will give her an opportunity to hone her craft while keeping expectations in check.  Taking her time would be a smart move, and at least since her resignation from office, Palin has been making a series of smart moves.

But for those who wanted a Palin run in 2012, this could be a temporary disappointment.

Update: HA commenter Cubachi notes via Twitter that Roger Stone predicted this in July:

Palin has the most valuable commodity a Presidential candidate can have – a base. Between roughly 23% of Americans and 68% of Republicans have a favorable view of Palin. She alone has the kind of intense following. She alone can fill a large hall or small stadium anywhere in Republican Country. This is similar to the following that sustained Nixon through two defeats and his ‘self-destruction’ in 1962 to win the White House in 1968.

Like Nixon, Palin needs some rehabilitation to her political image caused by the relentless attacks of the elitist media, the knife-work of the relatively talentless Republican Party pros like Steve Schmidt and her own self-inflicted wounds from the post election period that were born out of inexperience at this level of political combat. Like Nixon, Palin can re-make herself in the controlled environment of television. Instead of being tortured by smug media types like Katie Couric, Palin can demonstrate her better understanding of issues and articulate a case against Obama. She can be folksy and plain-spoken and above all, ‘smart.’ All hail the Conservative Oprah!

The “New Palin” is crucial to the expansion beyond her base of true believers to be a viable presidential candidate. The obvious place for Palin to re-tool her political image is FOX television. FOX’s viewers are Palin’s potential voters. It is ironic that FOX president Roger Ailes is the genius TV producer who erased candidate Nixon’s flaws in a controlled environment and facilitated the greatest political comeback in American history, is at the helm at FOX.

Not ironic, but perhaps providential.

Revenge is a dish best served cold.

Bruno Strozek on January 11, 2010 at 11:09 PM

You named 4 GOP Mondales there. But my gut feeling is that Palin will never run or be nominated, so relax. There’s just too much resistance against her from within the Republican party. So, they can nominate whatever bland sacrifical lamb they want, as far as I’m concerned.

ddrintn on January 11, 2010 at 6:05 PM

They didn’t want Reagan either. hell, when the PEOPLE nominated him, “the establishment” ran Anderson as a indie!

Tell me again how that worked out!

This is as stupid an idea as hosting “Death Valley Days”

bill30097 on January 11, 2010 at 6:25 PM

Excellent!

For those that don’t know, Ronald Reagan hosted “Death Valley Days.”

This is a Reagan two-fer!!

Look folks, every single thing Sarah is doing has already been successfully done by the great Renaldus Magnus. All Sarah is doing is putting her unique touch on it.

The path Sarah is taking is a proven path to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

This move, like pretty much every move she makes, is brilliant, and inspired. Sarah is a natural politician and a natural strategist.

This gives her a high profile position on the number one cable new network where she can say what she wants AND get paid for it!

In other words, she is going to get tons of free commercial air time to campaign, plus a fist full of dollars!

How many other politicians could pull that off, besides her and Huckabee? And Huckabee doesn’t do any hard analysis. His show is basically Hee-Haw for the 21st century, nothing more.

A lament over the lack of “conservatoive” candidates with “guts, money and name” after a snark about Palin’s “quitting”. There’s your answer. None are going to be good enough.
ddrintn on January 11, 2010 at 10:11 PM

Just like anyone with an “R” next to his/her name is good enough for “conservatives”, right?
I don’t care for Mrs. Palin, the politician, for a number of reasons: She has yet to write or speak on her systematic political philosophy, public policy views, or any semblance of a holistic foreign policy by which she would base her military and diplomatic decisions. Then you have her illegal immigration views, views on feminism, TARP, among other things, that show us more about her thoughts and convictions than any words she or others may say in a speech.
In 500-word answers, I’d love for each candidate to answer the following:
1. What is the role of the President?
2. What is the role of Congress and the Supreme Court?
3. What is the purpose of government?
4. What role, if any, should the government play in the economy?
5. What is your foreign policy, not in reference to any particular country, but as a holistic policy?
6. What is the role of the military, and how would you use it?
7. From where do you derive your world view?
8. Is the Constitution a “living” document? If so, how?
9. What are your views on state vs. federal roles?
10. What is the most just and revenue-maximizing form of taxation?
11. What makes you qualified for this position?
12. How would you improve the American education system?
13. When does life begin?
14. How would you increase national security?
15. What is your vision for the nation?

The point of communication is to communicate, not fill a 500-word quota.

Btw, do you know the meanings of the questions you ask?

5.What is your foreign policy, not in reference to any particular country, but as a holistic policy?

Holistic foreign policy?

Holistic, as in “total”?

Simple. What ever is best for the USA.

A few years ago Sen John Kerry was giving a speech on the floor. It was 23 pages long, Some Senators just got up and walked out cuz they were board to tears (even the Dems).

In short, I read the speech and it could have been reduced to simple this.

“Mr. President, either Blank or get off the pot”

Another right move by the Cuda.

She can co-host a special on the Korean War with Ollie North and talk to veterans including Korean civilians, AND go over the reasons for the partition after WW2.

Most Americans don’t know why it was split in the first place. Heck, according to Schmidt she didn’t know. I don’t know. I only know the Cuda pulled an Inchon on Axelrod & Co. when she resigned, went national, and began her nightstick campaign on the One.

Does anybody know why it was split in the first place? Was it because the Russians declared war on Japan before the surrender and in addition to Manchuria, they pushed into the northern half of Korea?

Sarah needs to do a special report or story about Katyn Forest Massacre and visit the memorial in Poland. I believe the site of the massacre is in Russia.

That would be very moving, a solid heavy story about the horrors of communism. The only problem is that knowing Sarah, she would choke up and tears would form while trying to do the story of this massacre and she might not finish it the first take.

The Polish people would remember her like they remembered Reagan.

Hmmmm.

“Media outlets generally cut off analysts when they start building campaigns to avoid the necessity of giving opponents free air time for responses. ”

But if FOX took the position that since Palin herself was on the air that any opposing candidates would personally have to be on air rather than any spokesmen AND that such responses would have to be on the same show … in essence that would result in multiple debates but completely under FOXs control.

Sarah Palin has infinitely more experience than Obama had when he ran. She has a solid record of achievements and a political philosophy more in line with my own and many other voters, judging by the response to her book and the crowds at her speaking engagements.

But hey, to assuage any anger from those who claim this is her magnus opus of political philosophy and public policy, I’ll read through it at the PX while I’m at lunch today.

The Fox appearances will give her an opportunity to hone her craft while keeping expectations in check. Taking her time would be a smart move, and at least since her resignation from office, Palin has been making a series of smart moves.

She’s definitely working her way slowly to something huge. This is probably a step in her living her dreams–her degree is in communications with a focus on journalism. Her star power is larger than life to just be making an occasional appearance on FOX. Whatever it is, she’s got my respect and support 100%. FOX will make a much more powerful platform than Facebook in the meantime.
