Ann Curry to co-host Today, according to NBC. Really? Isn’t she, um … you know … insufferably cloying stagey and phony?* Makes Diane Sawyer seem like Humphrey Bogart! Just saying … P.S.: And they accuse the Republicans of promoting mediocre candidates by internal lockstep [need another ex.-ed David Gregory]. …

*–Update: Get real! As discussed below, maybe “cloying” is the wrong word–but definitely stagey and insincerely breathy, always in a safe way. See for example the interchange with Susan Rice in this video.  You could not stand to have breakfast with this person every morning, which is probably one test of whether a host will work on Today.
