Dennis Kucinich made his official debut as a Fox News contributor on Thursday's "O'Reilly Factor."

The left-wing ex-congressman probably startled many supporters when he announced that he was on the Roger Ailes payroll on Wednesday, but he appeared eager to chat when O'Reilly introduced him.

"Wow, what a conversion!" O'Reilly joked. "Congressman, how did that happen? You know all the people on Fox News are far-right crazy people!"

"Together again at last, Bill," Kucinich said. "So you're the same left-wing nut we know and love," O'Reilly said. Kucinich pointedly noted that, unlike "another network," Fox News had allowed him to participate in a presidential debate.

The two then spent a few minutes sparring gently over things like Al Franken (O'Reilly: "he's a weasel." Kucinich: "well, I can't say that") and gun control.

"Bill, we'll talk again," Kucinich said as the segment ended.

"Alright, you," O'Reilly replied. "We're glad you're on board, Congressman."
