Here’s a hilarious story for you. The Washington Post falsely claimed that Sarah Palin had taken a job contributing for the Al Jazeera Network. Sarah Palin then took to twitter with some hysterical responses.
Suzi Parker of the Washington Post‘s She the People blog reported Tuesday that Palin, in an attempt to “stay relevant,” would join the Al Jazeera America network, to “reach millions of devoutly religious people.” The only problem is the report comes from “The Daily Currant,” a parody site whose lead story today is “Catholic Church considering Jerry Sandusky for Pope.”A sampling of the original “report:”
After leaving Fox News, Palin said she was hoping to reach a broader audience with her message. When contacted by phone, Palin said Al Jazeera – with its extensive international network – offered her the best opportunity to broadcast to millions of people.

That tells me they don’t have a liberal bias.”
Palin’s tweets that followed are some of the funniest things I’ve read in a long while.
