As Bob Somerby at The Daily Howler would say, this is your cable discourse. A nightly display of nationalism, pseudo-intellectual justifications for all manner of violence, and personalities and egos run amok. Miller fits in beautifully, and given that before him CNBC was airing stuff like "Bay-Window-Measuring with Art Howe," Miller's show should be around for awhile.
One positive note--I like Ellie the chimp. A perfect co-host to Miller. Here we have a political animal that farts in Miller's face. That one gesture tells me that Ellie understands the environment she's working in. On a show filled with screeching humans, it's the primate who gets the joke.
