    was that he was good for ratings in an "oh my gosh can you believe that!" sort of way and even though he was effectively expunged form the GOP and proper conservative circles years ago for his noxious views, the network also got to label conservatives with pat's outrageousness. Thus he was used for that very reason by a cynical network desperate for ratings. But they must believe the latest crap from him will hurt rather than help ratings. I wouldn't give them any credit for finally axing the creep.

    •  Pat was very original (3+ / 0-)

      Don't get me wrong, I rarely agreed with the man, but he was at least the author of his own views: rather than, like most conservative pundits, a dutiful bearer of whatever Message has been duly focus grouped for dissemination by the Right that day. He hated George W. Bush and opposed the Iraq War as a foolish imperialistic endeavor.

      I sort of put him in the same category as Ron Paul: wrong, but  sometimes he is right for the wrong reasons.

      I support torturous regimes! Also, I kick puppies.
