Commentator Armstrong Williams called the probe into his $240,000 deal with the Bush administration to promote the No Child Left Behind Act a "witch hunt" and vowed to rise from the controversy that he said has brought shame to him and his profession.

"Dan Rather is at the end of his career," Williams said of the retiring CBS anchor. "I'm at the beginning of mine."

We kind of think you are at the end of yours, but maybe FNC will hire you on with all the other fallen analysts like Newt, and Morris, and North, and we have to include Geraldo Rivera with these guys for the Al Capone vault fiasco.

Can you help us out?
