New York, NY-A Fox News contributor is a prestigious gig. Reporting to a studio when called and then being consistently wrong on any number of topics sounds easy—landing the job is anything but. War crimes seem to be a good resume booster, so Oliver North has some job security for his part in the Iran Contra scandal. Anyone named ‘Bush’s Brain’ and the ‘architect’ from 2001-2009 is a safe bet, eh Karl? Jail time for white collar crimes or impeachable offenses is always good in a pinch.
“We can’t wait until the Hammer’s paroled,” said Fox head, Rupert Murdoch, “and as for Jared Loughner, I’ve seen his little campus videos; we will be watching his career with great interest.”
Murdoch feels Loughner, the Tucson shooter, may end up their Senior Tea Party Correspondent.
“Sure, the Tea Party is full of good, honest Americans, but they do tend to pick increasingly insane spokespeople,” said Murdoch. “They’re on track for a Loughner. He’s a gun rights advocate and he’s already taken out some Democrats. In the future, they’ll call that 2 for 2.”
The big question remains is Glenn Beck blowing his chances? There’s only one prominent correspondent who got where he is today solely by inaccuracy: William Krystol, of Weekly Standard fame. Krystol has made a career on bad predictions and faulty logic, but Beck already has some missteps in this area. He was right about the upcoming financial crisis, long ago, and continues to point out the un-sustainability of some U.S. programs and pensions. Sure, he’s been completely bat shit for the last few years, but is it too little too late?
