No doubt lost in the roar surrounding Eliot Spitzer's dalliances with prostitutes (where was the media when this was David Vitter, again?), will be the story that Tucker Carlson has been replaced with David Gregory.
I woke up this morning to the news, responded to with glee on several blogs, that Tucker Carlson's anemic show had been canceled--euthanized, if you will. And I thought, maybe, just maybe, MSNBC will take a shot and give a woman or a person of color a shot at a prime-time, talking-head show. It's seemed like they've been grooming Rachel Maddow for just a post, and when you consider that the only non-males on cable news with their own shows right now are Nancy Grace and Greta Van Susteren, neither of whom fill the same sort of niche that say, Keith Olbermann or Chris Matthews or Dan Abrams do, it's not a huge stretch to think that might be a good idea.
Instead, we get David Gregory.
This David Gregory:
Mister "Rapping with MC Rove" David Gregory. The man King George the Lesser refers to as "Stretch." That David Gregory. He doesn't even have a tan, for crying out loud.
