2. Vacation,. combined with Olympics would be my choice

My guess is that most of the "help" at MSNBC got a vacation forced on them during the olympics.

3. Bashir?

I think he went missing at least the week before the olympics. I just thought he was just going to be doing
specials from London.I did a lotta searches and the internet is particularly quiet on this. That's when I get suspicious.

6. His FB page posts that he's back next Monday


Coming up at 4pm, Karen Finney in for Martin (have no fear - he's back next Monday) and we begin with VP candidate Paul Ryan receiving a heckling at his first solo campaign stop in Iowa; Michael Steele and Howard Dean join us for what should be a fun one; Stephanie Cutter from the Obama campaign will answer questions about Romney and Ryan - as well as the discipline of Democrats; Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., will look at Ryan in Congress and what he would do to social safety programs; TopLines recaps two weeks and will set up more 2012 talk with Jon Capehart, Joy Reid and Julian Epstein; Jared Bernstein talks details of the Ryan budget; Kristen Welker is with President Obama in Iowa; Karen Clears the Air...see you soon...
