"Hey, on days when she has Michelle Malkin and Gretchen Carlson on as guests we can make a new 'Two Girls one Cupp' drinking game."
-- Huffington Post commenter "Fretslayer" on the announcement by MSNBC that it would be giving partial hosting duties for its new 3PM show to conservative commentator and cultivator of the naughty librarian look S.E. Cupp
For those of you who thought that MSNBC was politically progressive by nature or that its decision to lean left was the product of its executives' and hosts' true feelings, let this be a lesson to you. It was always about ratings and money. And so is this: putting a dingbat like S.E. Cupp on the air solely because she's ridiculously easy on the eyes.
The important thing to keep in mind is that this move won't win a single critic of MSNBC on the right over. Not a one.
I'll have more on this tomorrow at the Daily Banter.
Update: Sorry, kids, but the Banter post will go up tomorrow (6.20). Busy as hell today.
