Match Made In Heaven? Sarah Palin Becoming Fox News Contributor
Former McCain political strategist Steve Schmidt, on Sarah Palin:
On 60 Minutes last night, John Heilemann said that during the 2008 campaign, Palin “regularly” claimed “that Saddam Hussein had been behind 9/11” (via Think Progress):
"There were numerous instances that she said things that were -- that were not accurate that, ultimately, the campaign had to deal with. And that opened the door to criticism that she was being untruthful and inaccurate. And I think that that is something that continues to this day," he said.
Also on 60 Minutes Sunday, McCain-Palin campaign chief Steve Schmitt said Palin thought being chosen as McCain's running mate was part of "God's plan" (via Crooks & Liars):
“I am thrilled to be joining the great talent and management team at Fox News. It’s wonderful to be part of a place that so values fair and balanced news.“
