9. Lawrence O'Donnell vs. Peter Schiff
On Morning Joe - Peter Schill, I mean, Schiff, (Crashproof) was making a Republican talking point about "socialized" medicine when O'Donnell asked him if he liked Medicare. Schiff said no, that Medicare was detrimental to the "market" or some foolishness like that. Then, O'Donnell went in for the kill. "Are your parents on Medicare?" Schiff started ummming and errrrring and said his father was on Medicare but he was "a special case." Scarborough went immediately to a break.

I would call this electronic Greek chorus of corporatists - whores, but most of the whores I know are pretty honest and unhypocritical. I prefer to call them subsidized liars.
