Joe Scarborough goes after Beck and conservatives who condone him

I was actually watching Morning Joe this morning and missed this part.



Better version of same video can be found here:

http://rawstory.com/blog/2009/09/scarborough-on-beck/

I was thinking that Mika was disapproving of what Joe was saying until she clarified her feelings for Beck at the end.

Re: Joe Scarborough goes after Beck and conservatives who condone him

That video is impossible because we are told over and over that Glenn Beck is adored by all conservatives.

An MSNBC host attacks a FOX News host?!?!?! What's the world coming to?

Re: Joe Scarborough goes after Beck and conservatives who condone him

Do you suppose part of this is Joe defending his employer?

Scarborough's classic conservative credentials are pretty solid. I suppose it is not unreasonable to look for ulterior motives here, but when you see stuff like this:

GOP Congressman Targeted By 'RINO' Hunters

going on, it does start to look like common sense that the current lack of restraint and heavy fringe influences in the conservative movement, or revanchist conservatism to use a Sam Tanenhaus-ism, are self-destructive.

It'd be easier to accept Scarborough's point if he didn't have that Neo-Nazi asshat Pat Buchanan on his show.

If Beck doesn't change, the Republicans could lose enough seats to where they couldn't block any legislation. Oh wait, they are already there. Yeah, Republicans should go back pre Beck days.

I'm sorry. The answer is wrong. We were looking for "Hogwash!" Thanks for playing, classicman2.

Both of them? I could understand his dislike of Dirk Benedict -- but Katee Sackhoff? Beck truly is an idiot.

I don't see the problem with trying to replace members of your party that you don't think are doing a good enough job (or aren't as conservative as you want).

Buchanan isn't in that segment posted. Am I missing him?

He's a regular on Morning Joe. If Scarborough was truly concerned with news organizations giving soap boxes to asshats, he could start fixing things by refusing to let Buchanan on. Instead he goes after a highly rated show on a rival network.

Conclusion: He's a hypocritical Republican who doesn't deserve to be taken seriously.

Do you disagree?

Do any of the big name pundits deserve to be taken seriously?

I disagree. It's not Buchanan that's 'hurting' MSNBC.

Get rid of him, and they'll probably even have less fewers.

btw: I'm no great fan of Charles Krauthammer either.

I wasn't either until I found out that he's in a wheelchair.....

All this time, I thought he was a "sloucher."
