I remember all the arguments I got in with people who thought I was too hard on Evan Bayh. His heart was in the right place, he's the most liberal person who could be elected from Indiana, he truly believes the right-wing garbage that comes out of his mouth (which makes it OK?)....
Bayh stood for nothing besides self-aggrandizement and augmenting his bank account. And now, like Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee before him, he'll do that across all of Fox's platforms:
Former U.S. Senator Evan Bayh has found himself a new job. Fox News announced Monday the have signed Bayh to become a contributor to the network.
Bayh will be a commentator and political analyst across all of Fox News' platforms. Bayh served as Governor of Indiana from 1989 to 1997 and then as a U.S. Senator representing the Hoosier State from 1999 until last year when he decided not to seek re-election. Bayh also considered a run for president in 2008 but ultimately decided against it.
I'm sure Fox will play it up with things like "Even a Democrat like Evan Bayh agrees that corporations need another tax break!"
