The Question O'The Day: Who In Hell Is The "TV Pundit Who's Always Wrong"?

Today's 'toon features Biff and Wanda, the blow-dried anchorpeople of "Action McNews," which Tom Tomorrow suggests is actually is more PR spin than TV news. A Biff and Wanda strip almost always ends with a cut to a commercial break ("Now, these messages!") Today, Biff and Wanda give face-time to the Neo-Con Richard Perle along with a hologram of The Dubster as the unclean artist. The BIG mystery that remains from today's 'toon is the identity of "The Pundit Who's Always Wrong." If this is a (fair & balanced) critique of punditocracy, so be it.
