Itís Official: CNN Names Eliot Spitzer And Kathleen Parker As 8pm Hosts
Mediaite.com ^ | 06/23/2010 | Steve Krakauer

As has been speculated for about a week now, Eliot Spitzer and Kathleen Parker will be paired up as co-hosts of a new 8pmET “spirited, nightly roundtable discussion program” on CNN.

The Crossfire-like show replaces Campbell Brown’s program – which she announced she was leaving last month.

Let’s take a look at the key players. Spitzer was a surprise regular guest on Dylan Ratigan’s new MSNBC show starting almost one year ago today. Over this past year he’s risen through the ranks at MSNBC and began anchoring occasionally a couple months ago during news hours. He also, of course, is the former Democratic Governor of New York…and Client 9.

Parker is a conservative columnist and regular pundit on a variety of networks. She memorably called on Sarah Palin to drop out as VP candidate during the 2008 election – a column that to this day has some conservatives calling her “Republican In Name Only.”

At least Spitzer is in a place where we can ignore him. I hope the program is moderately successful enough that he spends the rest of his career there.

Communist News Network’s idea of balance — Parker on the left and Spitzer on the far left.

Give him a couple of weeks, and the show will be about him chasing RINO Parker around the desk....

Will Eliot be telling us how buy a real high class hooker with state funds? Anything on his love of back door action?

You have to wonder what Parker’s husband and children think about her agreeing to be Eliot Spitzer’s “work wife.”

So they are going to reward this slime bag with a lucrative contract/and TV program for his whoring around, and a supposedly respectable woman has agree to co-host it. What does that say about her? What does that say about CNN? Definite shortage of shame and decency on all sides.

Break the laws you are sworn to uphold and you get a prime time slot on CNN...

What is next, the Charlie Mason Hour?

Maybe the Van Der Sloot Missing Children Update?

Oh wait, the only criminals that CNN wants to put on the air are ex-democrat office holders.

The same Kathleen Parker who regularly takes philandering male politicians to task notably Bill Clinton?

Why would she agree to be in the same room with the slimy Spitzer?

I bet Obama is bummed - I heard that Eliot Spitzer And Kathleen Parker were his top two choices to replace General McChrystal.
Looks like he's on to his third choice: Spike Lee.
