I’ve been in a hotel the past few days, getting some work done. But this place doesn’t have MSNBC on the damn box... only CNN and Fox.
Turns out I’ve been missing some clawin’ and scratchin’ amongst MSNBC’s on-air talent.
This morning, Joe Scarborough, host of “Morning Joe,” jumped in David Shuster’s shit when Shuster made a crack about “your party.” (Scarborough used to be a Republican congressman.)
On Monday afternoon, Scarborough traded swipes with MSNBC’s biggest star – leftist blowhard Keith Olbermann – about John McCain’s poll numbers. Scarborough and Chris Matthews got a tad pissy with each other as well. Reeer!
Both clips are below. (Hat-tip: The Huffington Post.)
I like Scarborough, and I like “Morning Joe.” But he can get real snippy and nasty... usually when mixing it up with a liberal (such as Rachel Maddow).
Unfortunately for Scarborough’s blood pressure, MSNBC is tilting more and more to the left... apparently adopting the Fox News business model of naked partisanship.
Anyhoo... nice clips. Good ’n’ squirmy.
UPDATE (08/27/08): And it happened yet again... Tuesday afternoon. Chris Matthews got seriously pissy with Keith Olbermann! Must-See TV... it’s the third clip below!
Wow, MSNBC is coming unhinged. What is up with that?
