UB40 -- As Always, You Were Wrong Again

What does it take for a Republican to be so wrong, so out of touch with the American public, so completely and consistently on the wrong side of the issues that you're no longer invited on a Sunday show to opine? Apparently, the old axiom of a "dead girl or live boy" comes into play, because there is literally no other way I can think of to not see John McCain, Lindsey Graham, David Brooks, Peggy Noonan or Liz Cheney week after week.

It's frustrating to me that if you and I were as bad at our job as these guys are, we would be out of a job. But not only do these useful tools stay employed, they get new gigs and new platforms all the time. Boy, that's a nice gig if you can get it.
