Today at Salon:
Because CNN is now basically E! except without E!’s coherent ideology and shared sense of purpose, they have hired disgraced former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer to cohost a television show on their 24-hour news network. He will lead a “nightly roundtable” with Kathleen Parker, a terribly average political columnist who became suddenly successful when she announced that, despite being a female Republican, she disliked Sarah Palin. (She was smart enough to announce this in a column, instead of accidentally into an open mic like Peggy Noonan, who is still a much better columnist that Parker despite being a lithium-and-white wine-addicted Upper East Side bag lady.)
I love how casually he lobs the grenades.
