    Yeh it does seem a bit absurd given the guys background and reputation, I guess they made their money and now they are getting out while the going is good.

    They knew the honeymoon would end. If there's any contract, another network will buy it and A&E continues with fashion and hollywood. Can't have reactionaries on the same channel as a gay wardrobe show; that's chaos.

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    By supporting this man's bigoted spew as his religious right, and therefore immune from criticism.

    A&E is a company and may act in the way it feels is best to secure profit and serve its consumers. Phil is still free, regardless of repercussion with TV, to run his mouth as he feels fit. But to pretend that there should be freedom of consequence is a bit absurd.
