They're certainly casting against type these days. Former Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich has just signed as a paid contributor to Fox News and Fox Business Network. The liberal Kucinich represented Ohio's 10th district in Congress for 16 years before leaving office earlier this month. He also sought the Democratic nomination for president in 2004 and 2008. His new gig will begin on Thursday's edition of The O'Reilly Factor. Fox News CEO Roger Ailes said, "I've always been impressed with Rep. Kucinich's fearlessness and thoughtfulness about important issues. His willingness to take a stand from his point of view makes him a valuable voice in our country's debate."
