Miller time, indeed

Dennis Miller, last famous for confusing Monday Night Football viewers with stream-of-consciousness rants and obtuse cultural references, strikes a new pose as CNBC's latest talk show host starting Monday Jan. 26.

The now-conservative comedian's first guests will include Arnold Schwarzenegger, John McCain and Rudy Giuliani (who, by the way, is appearing in Iowa today -- a jump start on 2008, perhaps?)

Miller, once an outspoken liberal, says the 9/11 attacks helped convert him to the right-wing, although he's not a traditional conservative. Miller tried to describe his special brand of politics to the New York Times: "I've always been a pragmatist. If two gay guys want to get married, it's none of my business. I could care less. More power to them. I'm happy when people fall in love. But if some idiot foreign terrorist wants to blow up their wedding to make a political statement, I would rather kill him before he can do it, or have my country kill him before he can do it, instead of having him do it and punishing him after the fact. If that makes me a right-wing fanatic, I will bask in that assignation."
