    Outspoken liberal Dennis Kucinich has found a new home—at the Fox News channel.

    Yes, you read that right.

    Following his forced retirement from Congress, the former Ohio Democratic congressman has signed on with Fox News to be a contributor, the network announced Wednesday.

    As I've been saying over and over for years, Fox Noise isn't at heart about being right wing and it was never about news; it's about making money, and milking the right wing market is the angle they took. Now that their ratings are tanking they're getting desperate. This is what you do when your ratings tank -- pull a shocker. Same as Limblob with Slutgate.

    I bet they're also deeply embarrassed at Dick Morris and Karl Rove making them look so stupid in the election season.

    And I'll admit, it does make it interesting. Like to see DK square off against Sylvester. I'll tune in for that. But I have no doubt that what they'll actually do is set him up so they can knock him down, and the agenda will still be driven by the Sylvesters and O'Railys to play to the base. Kucinich will serve as a teaser, appearing in the role of Emmanuel Goldstein.

    Kucinich was the only Dem brave enough to call for Impeachment of Obama.

    Pogo will now insist that Crazy Dennis be burned at the stake for heresy.

    Oh no, I had already seen that. But that's not what the article says. I thought you might know something I didn't.

    You do realize that headlines are very often distorted to sell eyeballs, right? They did the same thing with Bob Costas where media everywhere were calling it a "gun control rant". We have to read articles carefully to see what the real story is and it often contradicts the headline. It's sad, but as long as it's the world we live in it's what they force us to do.

    good, people have been beating up fox news for blatantly lying for so many years, maybe they're finally turning a new leaf.

    lets reminisce:

    And let's see, the Republican or conservative commentators over at MSNBC are?

    Meanwhile, Dem/liberal Fox commentators...Juan Williams, Bob Beckel, Alan Colmes, Kirsten Powers, Santita Jackson, Mara Liasson, Tamara Holder, Evan Bayh, Marc Lamont Hill, Geraldo Rivera...just to name a few.
