The best reactions to Sarah Palin's split with Fox News

The former vice presidential candidate "parts ways" with Fox news, and the Internet reacts accordingly

On Friday, Fox News announced that it has "parted ways" with Sarah Palin and will not renew her contract as a contributor.

The New York Times reports:

It was unclear whether the parting was Ms. Palin’s choice. Bill Shine, an executive vice president at Fox, said in a statement, “We have thoroughly enjoyed our association with Governor Palin. We wish her the best in her future endeavors.”

As of last week, Ms. Palin remained in negotiations with Fox News about a new contract. Her original contract with the network started in January 2010 and ended this month.

Twitter, as expected, was delighted:
