Michael Steele, Perfect Choice for MSNBC

On the plus side, as Bryan Preston writes, the addition of the former head of the RNC brings a polished, telegenic presence  that’s in short-supply at the local public access cable network. Not to mention helps them to lean forward and reduce their self-professed monochromatic issues:

On the downside (although this is a feature for MSNBC), when Chris Matthews and company start to have their inevitable flashbacks to, as Chris would put it, “the 30s in another country,” if past performance is any indication, Steele certainly won’t object at all.

But I’d love to be proven wrong on that.
