I assume it's an April Fool's, right? It couldn't be that NBC is so desperate for ratings it has to find an unhinged, delusional, inarticulate know-nothing to guest-host its show just to leverage red America against blue? They didn't do it just to make a point about Katie Couric's lonely interview with the woman who wanted to know where "North Africa" was? They haven't just picked an active partisan fanatic who could still play a role in the current election season as a sign that they are a news organization, have they?

I mean: NBC News isn't just a total whore with no pretensions to actual journalism, right?
