  •  This isn't his first fox gig... (4+ / 0-)

    He used to be the "token liberal" during the Bush administration.  They let him write columns for the web site and everything.  They liked having him, because he fit their caricature of a Democrat so well.  I'm not sure if it was a paying gig or not, probably not, since he was a sitting congressman at the time.

      but it's not like he's becoming a conservative or anything.  He can articulate Democratic positions better than Alan Colmes or anyone else they've got there.

    •  He also can now attack Obama from the left (1+ / 0-)

      Fox will love anyone who attacks Obama for any reason.  Attacking him from the left serves the purpose you identify, of fitting an extreme caricature, while still attacking Obama which serves Fox's main purpose.
