Former Drug Czar Signs with CNN

According to TV Newser, William Bennett will join CNN as a “political analyst” (replacing Robert Novak as a high-profile conservative).
Bennett was the Drug Czar under George Bush the First, and is smooth talker and fact shaver known for taking a high moral position against drugs and just about anything else, as long as it isn’t Bill Bennett doing it (he turned out to be quite the gambler).
Current Drug Czar John Walters was chief of staff under Bennett (and learned his techniques well). The two of them even wrote a book together called “Body Count: Moral Poverty…and How to Win America’s War Against Crime and Drugs” (1996) – a thoroughly discredited piece of garbage that I actually slogged through. Nauseating.
