Joe Scarborough

with 4 comments

Joe Scarborough was talking about David Letterman calling Sarah Palin names.  He was on solid ground; Palin was criticized for her appearance; Letterman’s joke was sexist.  If someone had criticized Michelle Obama because her skin was dark, we’d call it racist; there’s no real good reason to dismiss sexism when we see it.  The problem is that we don’t perceive sexism when it happens because we aren’t sensitized to it to the degree we are to racism.

Anyway, I don’t want to climb down into the weeds here.  I’m no expert on the feminist critique and that’s not the point of this post.   Besides, as you’ll see, Scar’s criticism wasn’t rooted in a feminist argument.

Instead, good ol’ Scar returned to the tried and true.  “What if it was a conservative that said it about Hillary Clinton?” he whined.  “Why does Rush get criticized, but liberal comedians can say anything and get away with it?”  “Where’s the outrage?” “Media double standard!!”  “I’m a poor white man that can’t get a break…”  and…  “Liberals control the whole world….  oh… oh… oh….  it’s so unfair!!”

They don’t make violins small enough.

So I called his show.  Hope you like it.

Oh, and Joe?  Please, don’t change.  The lack of conservative capacity to accept criticism or to engage in self-reflection works very well for y’all.  Kudos!

  1. Live by the sword die by self-water boarding!

    That’s what happen on morning joe when LARRY’O read off a list of conservative NO’s

    Slavery, voting, women, workers, old people, poor people, veterans, Hispanics, choice, minorities of every persuasion rights, did I leave anyone or anything out? Civil Rights! All Liberal Ideas! Damn there’s that word is again. Anybody here want to take any of these away, go head and try. Would any of these be socialist ideas? How about SS, Veterans Benefits, Congress retirement and lifetime health care plan, Unions, corporations all have a socialist taint. Who’s for killing off these programs, well maybe congressional benefits.

    Joe/MSNBC/Starbucks told us that HE is the LAST BEST HOPE, with shattered ideas. I don’t see how he comes back from this. He is the best case for Darwinism, some of the species don’t make it, they die off. He’s like his co host Pat Buchanan a dying breed. That’s is a good thing!

    He is a part of his party that’s stuck on stupid, but that extends to all conservatives in this mindset and its rearward thinking. I don’t see how moderates can stay in this party hoping to change it. Maybe they would be better of being an Independent. Religion and guns has captured this party, the party of fear. newt, be afraid be very afraid, I’ll lead but you go first. The party that tells North Korea, yes you can and we to love torture. Scarborough is the master of knowledge on water boarding, a CIA person told him it works.

    Maybe Lawrence O’Donnell & Nora O’Donnell can save this time slot on MSNBC but Starbucks just made an ASS of themselves.

  2. Joe Scarbrough has turned into the biggest whiner on morning TV. I think that he might be considering a run for Governor of Florida, so this must be why he has sharpened his attacks on anything that he perceives as liberal. During the ’08 election season he was in love with then Senator Obama.

    I say bring Imus back!

  3. Joe Scarborough makes me want to puke. And all this fawning over his book. Absolutely nauseating…..I wish my partner and I could watch something else in the morning. CNN is not an option. Entirely too sterile. Too bad Mika is a dork and is overly deferrential to him. Her father is SURE NOT. I think Joe should divorce his wife and marry Miss California.

  4. Morning Joke wouldn’t acknowledge the truth if it fell on his head in the form of a million pound anvil. He quickly sought to devalue your comments and accuse you of hatred. He needs to look into the next mirror he sees to identify the true source of all the hatred that’s being spewed on America’s airwaves. I stopped listening to him right before the election last year because the more Obama gained in the polls, the more ugly and hateful he became, and he made no attempt to cover up his true feelings. I choose which programs to watch and I chose not to watch his.
