Media watchdog Brent Bozell says he now knows why MSNBC hired Joe Scarborough -- "He's about as accurate and honest as everyone else there":
And then there's Sarah Palin. He's repeatedly insulted her, then publicly whined about conservatives being upset with him. Try this nugget: "It is such a disservice to compare Sarah Palin in any aspect to Howard Dean. Yes, because that is an insult to Howard Dean's intelligence."On his "Morning Joe" program on MSDNC, Scarborough like to tout his conservatism. Joe's of the David Frum school of conservatism, doncha' know... We prefer to call it Conservative LiteTM.
Last week, he publicly bashed Fox's Bill Sammon for saying the media "hate" Palin with a rambling, condescending diatribe about how "they don't hate her," only to conclude that "they hated her in the press early on without knowing her because she was a pro-life woman," thus making Sammon's point.
Last week was the topper. He analyzed Fox News Sunday's interview with Palin: "Look at the end of Chris Wallace's interview where he rolls his eyes, embarrassed. There's no doubt he is ... Chris is sending a message to all his friends: yes, I know. She is not a serious thinker."
Wallace had a message, all right. Asked if he'd rolled his eyes, he shot back: "No is the quick answer to that. Secondly, let me just say that Joe Scarborough lives out where the trolleys don't run at night. The last time I heard of somebody getting that kind of secret message, it was Son of Sam hearing from a Labrador retriever that he should go out and shoot people. And I think that Morning Joe definitely needs to switch to decaf."
