CNN hiring Bill Bennett as a political commentator.

I just learned that CNN is hiring Bill Bennett as a political commentator.

I wrote a really nasty letter of protest immediately, as you should and all the folks you know should. He may well be America's biggest hypocrite and we do not need his politics slanting the information on CNN. In my letter, among other things, I mentioned his gambling addiction, his recent racist or totally insensitive remark, his incompetence as a drug czar, and his misleading of the American people when education secretary. Let's see if we can make the bully pay for his past instead of being rewarded for it.
