Which Saddamscam figure will become a top conservative radio host?

To recap the last few Republican Presidents:

Nixon, Ford: Watergate. Produced G. Gordon Liddy.

Reagan, Bush Sr: Iran-Contra. Produced Oliver North.

Bush Jr: Saddamscam.

It starts to seem like whenever a Republican President subverts democracy (am I being redundant?) there are a lot of conservatives out there who like it so much that one of the henchmen becomes a hero, and gets a radio deal out of it.

So which Saddamscam figure will become the next hot talk radio host?

My bet is on Rumsfeld. He’s got the right tone of voice, loves to pontificate, and is full of pseudo-philosophical observations about politics. Can’t you just imagine him sneering at his liberal guests?

Paul Wolfowitz, the resident Master of spin. He could replace Robert Novak.

She’s not a conservative, but Hillary Clinton.

REmember, not just conservatives thought the war was justified.

I can’t see Hillary stealing audience members from Rush, O’Reiley, or Coulter, myself, unless they suddenly got a whole lot smarter. :slight_smile:

As for the OP, I’ll also nominate Donny Rumsfeld, since he’s got more spin these days than the (former) Iraqi Information Minister. :wink:

You’re all forgetting one very important thing:

It’s the mid-level people that become talk show hosts, not the top people.

Therefore, Rumsfeld is out.

Agree with Quinn. Seems like it would be someone you pretty much hadn’t heard of until the scandal started.

Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf … that’s assuming he doesn’t get to host ‘Saturday Night Live’…

George W. Bush’s new day job, as of Jan., 2005.

(I’ll sing praises, Lord. Hallelujah, hossannas, the whole megilla. I’ll donate 15% of my income to underprivileged Unitarian children. I’ll purchase only Amish approved products and never so much as annoy a whale as long as I live. Maybe 12.5% on that income thing is more realistic. I’ll get back to you on that. Of course, if I had a better job, I’d have more money to give. Just mentioning…)

No, Bush’ll probably become the Comissioner of Major League Baseball.

Lt. Col. Dominic Caraccilo

He’s the guy responsible for the recent “letter writing campaign” from Iraq that featured identical letters.

He was there when we found one of the possible www.jsonline.com/news/gen/apr03/133542.asp+%22dominic+caraccilo%22&hl=en&ie=UTF-8]evidences of banned weapons in Iraq.

He was there trying to establish the connection betweenal Qaeda and Hussein in Kirkuk.

Here’re more instances of him in the media:"Dominic+Caraccilo"&hl=en&ie=UTF-8"Dominic+Caraccilo"&hl=en&ie=UTF-8"Dominic+Caraccilo"&hl=en&ie=UTF-8"Dominic+Caraccilo"&hl=en&ie=UTF-8

The guy’s got a great Google rate: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=“Dominic+Caraccilo”


Anyway, he’s prominent, a writer, and establishment friendly, so, why not him?

Damn hamsters made me screw up my coding.

Donald Rumsfeld is 71 years old and is unlikely to have much of a career after his time as Secretary of Defense.

Let’s not forget Ari “the Shoveler” Fleischer. He’s a born propagandist and bullshit artist and he has no other discernable talent. He should fit right in on Fox News.

Wow. Remember in the bad old days of the USSR, where the commies had officers attached to every unit whose only jobs were political indoctrination and propaganda? This guy would have been perfect.

Lt. Gen. William G. “Jerry” Boykin, anyone?

Only if he gets to wear the full costume with all his awards and decorations and trousers bloused into jump boots.

High-jack: Does anybody else think that the new beret worn like a condom stretched over the skull just looks silly?

No, he’ll become the Gen. Edwin Walker of his generation.

For those of you who have forgotten the hysterical MG Edwin Walker, or never heard of him, here is the website for an outfit devoted to the preservation of his memory, in all its shoddy glory.

This is the guy that Oswald shot at and missed.

“Nicked,” actually.

Ollie North became “a top conservative radio host”? He must be ruling the airwaves somewhere other than where I live.

If using bad intelligence or exaggerating it to stampede a mostly prone Congress into war counts as “subverting democracy”, then I guess I should be looking at the Vietnam War in a new light (anyone recall studying the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution in history class?).
Damned if I can’t think of anyone from the Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson or Nixon administrations (all of whom share blame for getting or keeping us mired in Vietnam) emerging as a top radio talk show host.

I don’t see anyone from Bush II making the big time in right-wing talk radio. I’m not even sure the format is going to be successful enough in the future to justify the label “big time”, what with Rush off to treatment and no really powerhouse substitutes waiting in the wings.
