Ed is kicking Joey Scar's ass!
Bet Ed won't get an invite back. He's not being the compliant yes-man. He's not letting Joe get away with his generic "I know stuff!" bullshit.

41. Mika is The Washington Generals of cable TV.......
That's the team that played and lost to The Harlem Globetrotters something like 900 straight games. Token opposition.

Another Alan Combs. You'd think she'd have taken a clue from her father who on his last visit to that show tore Joe a new asshole, as any thinking person with some... (let's use)... guts.... would.

44. Alan Colmes is actually well spoken when he isn't being dominated by Sean Hannity.
I had no idea Mika had any opinions at all, besides "sshushing" Joe and telling him to calm down.

4. It constantly astounds me how torture is rationalized and defended.
The more Joe talks, the deeper his foot goes in his mouth. It's almost out the other end right now.

Ed is right. The issue of torture rests on a moral foundation. This "whatever it takes to get the job done" attitude by Scarborough and a lot of others is shameful.

5. Even Keith Olbermann gives Joe Scum a free pass.
Edited on Thu May-21-09 07:27 AM by Ian David
If Joe Scum were on CNN or (where he belongs) on FOX, he'd be a regular part of Worst Person in the World.

If The Big Giant Head is calling-out Joe Scum, I have a new-found respect for him.

Edited on Thu May-21-09 09:32 AM by monmouth
they're on the same "team" as it were, MSNBC. He's a co-worker. Unless they totally agree with each other it's a no no.. Oooops, my bad. Ed is a co-worker. Okay Keith give Joey the treatment.

6. That was VERY good. Ed is a good counter for Schmo...
He didn't let him get away with any of the talking points, corrected him every time he tried to shift the issue and, best of all.. They BOTH called for full disclosure and investigations.

11. Joe had to resort to his "they kept your family safe, your children safe..."
And Ed still didn't fall for it. That's part of Joe's MO. When the facts don't work for him, he brings in your wife and kids, as if somehow you'd prefer your wife and kids were killed by terrorists. Ed just threw it back in his face and reminded Joe that it was about moral highground. You can tell when Joe isn't likin' it...none of his usual hysterical laughing over his guest, as with Bob Shrum. Joe KNEW Ed was handing his ass to him, and Joe didn't like it.

9. He might be invited back, though
if the fireworks cause a ratings increase and an increase in "buzz" around the Internet, he could well be back. Let's not forget that these pundits don't make laws--they just talk. And they talk to gain ratings, which is the bottom line. And in this economic climate, MSNBC might have actually decided to take the novel and innovative approach of real debate--something "new" and "different" which boosts numbers and therefore ad revenues.

12. Too bad Ed doesn't have a book to push...
So his ratings must be a little low and they are attempting to push them up with the Morning Joe show? I haven't seen KO or Rachel on Morning Joe lately?

10. I have a question...
WTF does Mika do on that show besides look like an idiot?

Joe is a real p.o.s. with his torture cheerleading - it makes me crazy every morning - (I watch every day for the fun.) - I have had to switch to my local dumbass news a couple of times lately due to Joe Scab's lack of conscience. But the real thorn in the old saddle blanket is that moron Mika.

14. Mika is physically very hot, but do you know who I find much more attractive?
Edited on Thu May-21-09 07:57 AM by Atman
Katrina Vanden Heuvel. I'd choose a nice candlelight dinner with Katrina over Mika any day of the week.

(EDITED for the correct first name!)

Finally, after this mornings ridiculous rant by Joe, and Mika coming unglued cause Ed was killing Joe, was unbelievably pathetic. They don't even try to be balanced anymore. It's all out war on the Dems, period. Blatant ignorance. I have finally convinced myself that it truly makes me sick in the morning. I have to have better starts to my day, and they make me sick from the get go.

Mika really showed her true colors today. Wow, she really hates dems, and with a passion. Hard to believe considering her father??? Mind boggling actually.

15. Oh boy...
I guess you could say she is hot. But having her say the most idiotic things ever... time after time, has gotta be enough for her to lose her attractiveness.

The moments of real horror is when her "Daddy" is a guest on the show --- yes... she calls him "Daddy." In private or on a personal level is one thing but when the guy is a guest it just makes her seem helpless and vapid.

17. I watched Joe in the beginning
but after a while it actually turned my stomach to see Joe rant and rave about stuff he had no clue about and Mika go along with him. She is an idiot and Joe is a douchebag torture defender. I hate that show with a passion and can't watch it. But I do like to watch the clips when they are posted I hope the Ed showdown is posted soon.

29. He's a "colleague" at MSNBC
with a show. MSNBC has a vested interest in driving up ratings for both shows. So, if Ed disagreeing with Joe does that - he will be back whether Joe wants him or not.

How come Rachel or Keith are NEVER on Morning Joe? Remember when Rachel managed to get Joe so upset on that dumb ass 1600 show? He got up, threw his mic down and walked off the set!!

I'll be shocked but happy if he comes back

30. I've been pretty impressed with Ed on TV while his radio show did nothing for me
He seems more passionate and better informed lately. He's looks and talks like the working guys Dem/liberal which I think is good. Our guys are smarter and more informed (usually) but often there's a teensy bit of eggheadery that I think Ed is a good counterweight to. I think his 6:00 show is well worth watching.

Joe Scarborough is the least interesting human on the Joe Scarborough show. I wonder if he knows that people watch despite his presence, not because of it. I wish they would replace Mika with someone with any substance at all, she's just a vacillating empty presence. They get the viewers, because like Imus used to, they get the guests.
