Why did cable news shows feature so many right-wing radio hosts as "experts" last week? It's an industry populated by dimwitted blowhards whose only concern is trying to out-schtick Coulter and Limbaugh and climb to the top of their slimy little hill.

Actually, a better analogy would be having Scientologists on to assess the latest advances in psychopharmacology.
