The Onion News Network has entered the cable news world, giving semi-literate former gold prospector Joad Cressbeckler his own news commentary show. And he's certainly qualified. Cressbeckler burst on the scene when he threatened to steal support from John McCain in the 2008 election. And don't even question his experience. The guy's been around. He's a "decorated veteran who survived yellow fever only to lose his left leg in the Spanish American War." Obviously Cressbeckler knows pain - so we know he's not gonna just break down and cry on camera. Unlike some other outlandish hosts we know.
