    Exactly correct.

    Seriously....I never heard the screaming prayer banshee was trying to get her own show, but that it hilarious, she has even less actual talent than Paris Hilton.

    Exactly, and that's saying something.

    Oh aps no. no no no no no, cmon aps, you're a great personality but Barney is a lousy annunciator, half the time he goes off on these ranting raving emotional tangents that make just no damn sense, and he has the worst case of mush mouth I've ever heard.

    I have no idea if he was in the military or not. I still don't think that automatically makes one worthy of being a war correspondent. I think the only reason I have a problem with it is because he didn't come to that position because of his renown or expertise on the subject. It's because he was a topic during the election because he asked Obama a question which led to the infamous "share the wealth" quote. I fail to see how that makes one a good war correspondent. I just wish people would see it for what it is. He's an opportunist like the rest of us who's trying to get as much mileage out of his 15 minutes of fame as possible. And hey, good for him.
    This answer just fits a little better with me, the experience/knowledge angle, simply because I think all journalists should report on what they know about are else stick to the facts, nothing irks me more than a journalist who uses "experts", "some would say", "so-called" etc. to back up a grossly uninformed opinion about a story. I say just report what happened and let us decide.

    Oh, and way to set the standard low with those comparisons.
    The only problem I have with the world traveler standard is that he doesn't need to understand the world to know how to speak to our military, which is to me the key factor in this, a correspondent must be able to get the most information possible, this comes from knowing your interview and what makes them comfortable. To me, the only people who absolutely must be worldly are those who work for the Travel Channel, since they should know about the places they are talking about intimately.

    Maybe he wants to do this job so he can run as a Vice Presidential nominee down the road.

    Joe the Plumber to become war correspondent - Yahoo! News

    He tells WNWO-TV in Toledo that he wants to let Israel's "'Average Joes' share their story."

    Wurzelbacher gained attention during the final weeks of the campaign when he asked Barack Obama about his tax plan.
    I dream of a day when average will be seen as something you should never take pride in.
