Fox News adds Scott Brown to join Dennis Kucinich Will Mitt Romney be next?

Where do failed politicians go after they’ve been rejected by their electorate? It seems Fox News is their new destination.

To help ratings, Fox has been shifting the face of its commentators steadily more to the left in order to keep it more “fair and balanced.”

Former Congressman Dennis Kucinich, lost his gerrymandered district in Ohio and had to try a stab at a re-gerrymandered constituency that would never elect him.

The far left, camera whore/congressman, was said to have his eye on a new congress gig representing Washington state, but his magic carpetbagger ride was interrupted by lagging poll numbers.

But not to miss a paycheck, or camera time, Kucinich was scooped up by Fox where he can dazzle the viewers with his practiced, non answer answers, on many topical subjects.

Ex-Massachusetts Senator and Playgirl centerfold, Scott Brown, is the latest addition to the Fox contributor stable.

Brown, fresh off a humiliating defeat to a candidate who should have been shamed out of the campaign for abusing the system, rather than being coronated Senator of Massachusetts, can grace Fox viewers with his vanilla views on national politics.

Brown and Mitt Romney, both headquartered in Massachusetts, used the same political playbook as they waged their campaigns. Both of them seemed hesitant to answer back attacks waged on them and never took advantage of clear targets when it came to their opponents glaring weaknesses..........

I have stopped watching FNC. When they rehired Rove, that was it.

Also, zero contributions to the RNC. I will buy reloading supplies with the money.

"Where do failed politicians go after they’ve been rejected by their electorate? "

Does that include Toyko Rove?

Faux News? Won’t watch it . . . not no more . . . especially since they hired that worthless, unemployable, loudmouth, jackass Kook-cinish. There’s no reason in the world to have that little squirrely creep in the public eye.

But what the hell . . . they still have Hair-Waldo Rivera and that pillow biter, Shepard Smith . . . and that worthless loudmouth The Barf-itech Rove.

Basically, there’s no newschannel that’s worth watching . . . the closest to reality is 700 Club news and that’s about all. Unfortunately, Pat Robertson is still on there.

Where, oh where do I go for decent news?

Romney doesn’t need the money. Brown and Kucinich probably do.

Well, call me an early-bird, because I gave up FoxNews well over a year-and-a-half ago, when I noted it dropping its generic, grassroots-friendly voice and transforming into such an establishment/beltway mouthpiece for the RINO faction. Before this, it was hardly perfect, but at least it was somewhat open to tea-party/social/border issues and mid-American concerns. After the 2010 mid-terms, they dropped all that, started treating Palin and Newt like crap, and just overall became the beltway-centric “Rove” Network. Vacuous cheerleading for D.C. Rino’s.

It’s really horrid now, judging from my brief forays. In fact, it looks now almost like the GOP-E equivalent of what MSNBC has been for the Dems. Really sad to see it like it is now. I used to have the channel on all the time, going back to its beginning.

Excellent advice for everyone! Give directly to your choice of candidates.

How about The Blaze TV? But when Beck starts crying or overdoing the shtick, he can be tough to take too.

FOX is really turning further left. As the nation goes so goes FOX!

For a while now I have been thinking that FOX always manages to get a leftist message to the public. Fox does this by putting on a leftist spokesman under the guise of balance. I have further that almost all left leaning spokesmen always manage to get their talking points stated even over the "objections" of the host. In addition by putting on leftists FOX is giving the left credibility. The FOX management knows what they are doing.

Are they running a news channel or a retirement home for politicians?

The three that make me want to throw up are Obama-drooler
Juan Williams, martian Alan Colmes, and lardass lefty Bob Beckel. Instead of getting rid of some of these hothair liberals, they fire Sarah Palin and hire more. If Rupert
Murdock thought he could make more money by turning 100% into a liberal network, O’Reilly and Hannity would take their marching order and turn into Ed Shultz, no doubt in my mind.

These geniuses think they can be as popular as NASCAR if they turn to the left.

I don't have access to BLAZE, so I don't know what you're talking about. May Jay Seculow has good stuff, but it's not daily sweeping news.

I just wish there was a station that I could sit back, relax, and enjoy adult announcers. I used to like morning Fox-News until they got all giggly and spent too much time trying to sell their books. Good station to watch, though, if you like nice legs . . . turn the sound off though

Now O’Reilly’s copy and paste “Killing Lincoln” that he has promoted ad nauseum is a History Channel movie. For me I’ll watch Gunsmoke on the Western Channel.
