Checking a name off of McCain's list

Fox News has also changed their line-up. They canceled John Gibson's not-so Big Story, and, more recently, they bumped E.D. "Terrorist Fist Jab" Hill. They also added Karl Rove, scheduled a new show for O'Reilly fill-in, Laura Ingraham, and just today announced that failed Republican presidential candidate, Gov. Mike Huckabee, would be their newest political contributor.

Well, if the folksy fascist is going to be on Faux Noise, then I guess he won't be McCain's running mate.

I think that's good news, actually. Fuckabee's folskiness might have been able to humanize the corpse of McCain enough to make this a tight race in November. Then again, he could also have weighed McCain down with far-right baggage and made the independents run screaming to Obama. In any event, it's probably academic at this point. Not just because with this move, it looks like the Huckster's not going to be on the ticket, but because Obama is going to sweep this thing.
