Recently on CNN's "Showbiz Tonight," she managed to offend both Muslims and gays. "Muslims kill gays. That's what's confusing to me. And the only thing I can come up with is the Muslims hate God and the gays hate his word," she said.

Ted Nugent

Rocker and reality star Ted Nugent also comes from the world of entertainment and is known for his conservative views and outspoken defense of hunting and gun-ownership rights.

He's also a favorite of the Fox News audience, after playing his guitar at a 2009 tea party event hosted by Beck and Fox News. A clip of his performance has gotten extensive air time on Beck's show and Fox News.

Nugent would also appeal to the coveted younger demographic that has been fleeing Beck.

Christine O'Donnell

Conservative politician and former tea party candidate Christine O'Donnell already provides commentary for Fox News, so hosting her own show wouldn't be such a stretch.

Like Jackson, O'Donnell knows how to grab headlines, having once likened masturbation to adultery and created the famous "I'm not a witch" campaign ad. And, like Nugent, she's sure to appeal to a younger audience with her youthful good looks.

Andrew Breitbart

Conservative commentator Andrew Breitbart is already on his way to building a media empire.

Like Beck, he has a big web following. He's also a frequent guest on Fox news shows and a guest host of conservative talk radio shows.

He's also unafraid to stir up controversies, like when he posted videos of Department of Agriculture employee Shirley Sherrod that resulted in her firing. (She was later offered her job back when the videos were revealed to be heavily edited.) He has even irked his fellow conservatives by supporting gay Republicans.
