Watching the Pre-Race show

before the Las Vegas NACAR race, I gotta say that I am embarrassed for Michael Waltrip. Not only is he a failed has-been racer (but one still worthy of respect for his accomplishments) but he is now played as a complete fool by whoever is paying his salary. He is no longer respected by the racers and their support staff, but obviously no longer by NASCAR officials nor the producers. He voluntarily plays the Court Jester and the Fool.
