The worst $15.85 ever spent

By Michael J.W. Stickings

Actually, it's more like the worst $3 million ever spent:

A Smart Politics review of the more than 150 FOX broadcasts in which Sarah Palin appeared as a paid commentator from 2010 through 2012 finds that she spoke 189,221 words on air during this span, for an average pay rate of $15.85 per word. 

Yes, Palin was paid $3 million to spew incoherent drivel.

As NYmag sums up: "Many of these words didn't even make any sense in the context of the words around them." 

And all for what, Fox News, all for what? Did the ratings justify the pay?
