“They invited Mary Katherine Hamm and S.E. Cupp to sit in on the show, so its not like they didnt have excellent options”
Hamm would have been a better choice, but I’m not so sure about Cupp. I always get the sense she’s not particularly bright, but wants you to think she is the smartest person in the room.
That aside, I agree with the author’s take on Wallace. Wallace is being brought on the show to be a slightly smarter version of Meghan McCain: a pseudo-conservative who’s there to be a tool for the Hollywood/MSM lefties. The only difference is that Wallace knows what she’s getting into, and I’m not sure that McCain has caught on yet.
