Former game show host and popular internet pundit Chuck Woolery has been hired as a contributor by the Washington Times.

Woolery has become a bit of a cult hero in the past two years since he discovered YouTube as a way to use his dry, sardonic humor to deliver conservative, small government messages to the masses. His popularity inspired the creation of the Super PAC Restart Congress and has made him a popular figure at political conferences like CPAC.
The former host of Love Connection and Wheel of Fortune has also been very active, and sometimes controversial with his Twitter activity. He joked about potentially causing his editors’ problems due to his spelling mistakes.
I’ll try to misspell a couple of words in each piece I write for the Washington Times, just so you know it’s me.

Woolery was also a big fan and supporter of Andrew Breitbart and appeared last year on the Dennis Miller Show when Breitbart filled-in for Miller.
