Should we really be surprised that Judith Miller has joined Fox News' stable of analyst-commentators? This, after all, is the network that already has Dick Morris, Howard Wolfson and Frank Luntz on its payroll.

(And is it my imagination or has Fox News managed to line up every black conservative columnist or commentator it can find this election season? I feel like the producers there figure they can run all the snide, coded stories against Barack Obama they want because they have black commentators on the air to prove they are racially sensitive. Whatevs.)

Miller is an embarrassment. Who's next -- "Curveball," the Chalabi source Miller relied upon, as a Fox News polling expert?
