And its in the form of a convicted congressman:

- Former Ohio congressman Bob Ney has started a new talk radio show, eight months after finishing his sentence in a public corruption scandal.

Ney's show debuted Monday afternoon on WVLY-AM 1370, which serves eastern Ohio and West Virginia. He discussed the pirate hostage crisis, the economy and the Obamas' new dog.

In a video posted on the station's Web site, Ney says his radio show is a work in progress and that he expects some negative feedback from listeners because of his conviction in a congressional bribery case.

The six-term Republican from Heath in central Ohio resigned after acknowledging in a 2006 plea that he traded political favors for gifts and campaign donations arranged by lobbyist Jack Abramoff and his associates.

From the big club house to the airwaves. That must mean only one thing. Next stop – FOX news!
