Why is Monica Crowley still on The Mclaughlin Group?

Why in the world is Monica Crowley still on The Mclaughlin Group? I cannot understand it - every syllable out of her mouth is pure Republican spin. There's no original analysis or insight that isn't recycled from the neo-con talk radio and Fox News circuit. The other panelists have taken to pretty much just tuning out whatever she says because they know it's just going to be talking points. It doesn't even seem as if she's on the same show; what she prattles on about often has little or no real connection to the flow of the conversation, as it's just regurgitated pablum that she tries to shoehorn into the dialogue. It's as though you've just accidentally channel surfed away to the O'Reilly Report or Hannity and Colmes for 30 seconds. 

And it's not just because she's a conservative. For all his faults, Pat Buchanan never resorts to the sort of scripted party line nonsense that Crowley spews week after week; all his opinions purely his own and drawn from his own analysis based on his conservative viewpoint.

She's a complete waste of space on the screen. I can't believe Mclaughlin puts up with her.
