Soon-to-be-unemployed Jeff Flake shopping himself for a gig at MSNBC or CNN

Senator Jeff Flake is giving up his seat in the purported “World’s greatest deliberative body” because he knows he would never be re-elected. Now, according to reports, he is hoping for a seat in a television studio where he can cater to another sort of constituency: cable news viewers of MSNBC or CNN (if any viewers remain after the next rating period).

From The Daily Beast:

When asked by The Daily Beast whether he is in talks for a cable-news gig, Flake declined to confirm or deny that the meetings took place.

“That’s down the road—that’s six months,” Flake said with a laugh.

Translation: yes.

What else could he do?

As a lobbyist, he would have no sway with Republicans, and Dems would regard him as the opposition. Life's tough when you sell out your own side.

I am just hoping that he ends up at MSNBC, because I’d hate to have to look at him at an airport gate area someday on CNN.
