There are few shows on cable news more disturbing to watch than CNN’s “Crossfire”. Three of the four co-hosts (Bob Novak, James Carville, and Paul Begala) are just plain unsavory. The fourth (Tucker Carlson) is a dweeb. There is, quite frankly, no one to root for.
That is why it is so heart-warming to hear that “Crossfire” has been demoted. It has been cut to half an hour, and moved from prime time to the doldrums of 4:30 in the afternoon.
However, I don’t believe these changes will be enough to make the show watchable. Here are some of my suggestions to improve the quality of the show:
1-Teach Novak how to talk. It’s irritating enough to listen to the guy rant and rave; must he also sound like a shit-salesman with a mouth full of samples?
2-Everytime Begala has clearly been out-debated, make him angrily jump up and down like Rumplestiltskin.
3-Someone tell Tucker to buy a real frickin’ tie, for God’s sake.
4-Strap a ball-gag on Carville.
