I don't know why anyone would think that Baghdad Bob a.k.a. neocon Dan Senor would be on anyone's short list to discuss the nomination of Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense, but MSNBC loves this guy so much that he's now apparently renting out Pat Buchanan's old cot in the back of the studios, ever since the Romney campaign hired him as an advisor.
The campaign might be over but sadly, our days with Senor on the air are not. He's been on Morning Joe so much over the year or so, there were weeks I was starting to wonder if he was going to take Mika's place as the co-host. If Chuck Todd and MSNBC are going to bring this guy on to talk about foreign policy, maybe they should let their viewers know that his Foreign Policy Initiative with the lovely sounding name is just the latest reincarnation of PNAC. A few more of them might be familiar with that group's name and how effectively they beat the war drums to get us into Iraq.
And maybe they could ask him if he ever found out what happened to that $9 billion that they managed to lose in Iraq, like Bill Maher did back in February of 2006 on Real Time: Dan Senor Tells Bill Maher How We Lost 9 Billion In Iraq.
Here's more on Senor and why MSNBC should be putting warning signs above his head every time they allow him on the air, from my post last April: Romney Adviser Dan Senor: Too Wrong to Fail.
