A Washington Post column reporting that Fox-less Sarah Palin will instead contribute to Al Jazeera America proved just too rich for this earth today and has since been corrected. (As the rapidly expanding Arabic network put it, Palin’s last employer recently called Al Jazeera “an anti-American terror mouthpiece.” It’s not the right fit.) The writer, Suzi Parker, pulled the news from the sub-Onion satirical site the Daily Currant (see also: “Catholic Church Considering Jerry Sandusky as Next Pope,” “Glenn Beck Calls 911 After Accidentally Eating Halal Pizza”), which quoted Palin explaining, “As you all know, I’m not a big fan of newspapers, journalists, news anchors and the liberal media in general. But I met with the folks at Al-JaJizzraa [sic] and they told me they reach millions of devoutly religious people who don’t watch CBS or CNN. That tells me they don’t have a liberal bias.” Apparently the “jizz” joke was too subtle.

Update: Sure, Sarah Palin will take some attention as an opportunity to lash out!
