2. Dumbasses.
Having Mika (Meeca?) in charge was like a breath of fresh air. I thoroughly enjoyed the way she ran the show the past month. I just cant handle Scarboy. Guess I will just write off mornings on cable. Hello C-span.

4. It's a bummer that he's back on the air again
Edited on Fri Jun-06-08 04:26 AM by 48percenter
Even though some people on here don't like Mika, they think she is an airhead, I think she did pretty well handling things while Joey Scab was off. It was a dark day Monday when his sourpuss was back on my screen. :puke:

Why can't they get someone else to headline that show??

9. Like Rachel Maddow.
She would liven things up - and add intelligence too.

14. They're better off giving Rachel Maddow an evening show
I'm thinking replace 'Race to the White House' after the election, since it won't be needed any more.

17. Did you enjoy it when she flogged the Rev. Pfleger story for 3 days,
and completely ignored McCain's lobbyist problems, even when people like Mike Barnicle and Chris Matthews came on the show and told her Pfleger was a non-story.

6. I bet his numbers tank before November.
That show is unwatchable. And Fox viewers watch Fox in the morning. He's competing with the real thing.

7. Some people think that committing murder can be a career impediment
Joe can tell ya', it just ain't so.

16. That article you linked to
shows that Scarborough was in DC when Klausutis died.

Look, the guy bugs the hell out of me, but just tossing around the charge of murder when nothing supports it is wrong.

18. Sorry, Monkey, thats what people do in countries where the justice system is criminalizing
Edited on Sat Jun-07-08 12:24 AM by tom_paine
or already criminalized.

I sympathize with you. It's not the way I'd want it, either. There is a large part of me, the part who grew up in Old America (1776-2000) that rebels against the very thought.

Things being what they are these last seven years, seeing criminality gotten away with right in plain sight (Gonzales' multiple felony perjuries on videotape to name the one among dozens that is most ironclad - his testimony under oath contradicted multiple times by the Director of the FBI and many others) naturally leads one to speculations of this kind.

It was true in Soviet Russia, it's true, in Commie China (I know, I have worked and spoken with people who were from both those places in addition to being well-read), I am sure it's true in every nation where authoritarianism/totalitarianism holds sway.

It's kind of a scary look-into-the-abyss thing, but then subjects of authoritarian nations are ALWAYS looking into the abyss, one way or another metaphorically-speaking. And subjects of authoritarian nations are always lied to and kept into the dark as much as possible.

Name me an example from history where that was NOT TRUE.

If you can.

On Murderin' Joe Scarborough: He couldn't hire a Hit Man? Oh no, Hit Men are a myth, they don't exist right? Only on TV, right? What does one get for hiring a thug who commits murder? Is it less than the murder itself (I don't know, I am a biologist, not a lawyer...but I think it's a little less)

Joe might have committed the murder. He might have hired a hitter. He might be innocent entirely, although the circumstance indicates some level of guilt strongly somewhere in his chain-of-command, if not him personally.

The problem is, in a corrupt society where one Party wields a massively disproportionate levels of power in a mostly criminal and authoritarian fashion WE DON'T KNOW...AND WE CAN'T KNOW!!!!!

As a result, we are left with the same thing the 1950s Russian Citizenry was, or the Roman Plebes, and everyone in between who ever lived in a nation "on that side of history". Sadly, that's most of the people who ever lived.

Left with the same thing. Guesswork. Samizdat. Playing Connect-the-Dots.

I agree with you, Monkey. Ten years ago, you and I would be singing the same tune in harmony. I agree, it's no way for civilized people to act, throwing out unsubstantiated murder charges. But what choice, eh? Wait for the Klausutis story to be investigated on CNNMSNBCFOX?

:rofl:

It's no way for civilized people to LIVE. And I don't care how much wealth, comfort, and safety we have. It's no substitute for True Liberty, which includes a justice system that is at least trying to be just, a relatively honest and fair Free Press, and a law enforcement system that is also reasonably fair and even in it's pursuit of crime, not singling out one political group for six times the investigation than the Power Party, as is happening here.

I understand and respect where you are coming from. As I said, if we lived in Iceland or Sweden or another Free World Nation, I would fully agree with you. If we lived in the old USA, circa 1980 or even 1990, I would fully agree with you.

Can you understand and respect where I am coming from?

I pray every day to once again breathe the sweet air of Liberty in this nation. And yes, it's about a lot more than merely being "left alone" by the PTB.

Read the original Tom Paine and the rest of the Founding Dads. It's about a LOT more than that.

I am interested in what you think about what I've said. I look forward to a reply. :hi:

10. I'm one who *never* watches Joe "dead intern" Scar.
He's a sexist pig who has no business having his own show.

12. please tell me that someone else saw this morning
when Mika mentioned the Senate investigation findings about the lead up to the war (she didn't even bring it up in conversation. It was one of the "top" stories that they mention at the top of the hour, but never discuss), and Joe started whining "oh please, don't tell me that they're still spending money on that stuff.", and started listing all of the "intelligence that said Sadam had wmd". Sorry Joe, you fucking voted to impeach over a blow job, you have no right to tell us to "move on". He also said that if Obama was "man enough", he should be able to handle both Hillary and Bill in the white house. And he picked as his favorite op ed of the morning a Wall street journal article saying that Obama needs to give another race speech for the "race card" being played through his church.
