Sarah Palin — the former governor of Alaska and 2008 vice presidential candidate — is leaving her perch at Fox News after a three-year run, reports Real Clear Politics. According to a source close to Palin, the one-time GOP star was offered a new contract, but turned it down. "She remains focused on broadening her message of common-sense conservatism across the country and will be expanding her voice in the national discussion," the source told RCP.
The news has already sparked much speculation (and joking) on where Palin will go from here:
