Morning Joe updates...James Cromwell Injects Sanity, my suicidal tendency abates

Super fresh update

James Cromwell is asked by the uppity Chuck Todd why the version of events in "W" should be taken seriously (he actually asked why it wouldn't be seen as the angry liberal version of reality...is he living in this country?) Cromwell lists several books from which the material was drawn, Chuckie scoffs at the mention of Kitty Kelley...Cromwell says to Chuck: your opinion is supposedly (heh) researched, my opinion is researched. Oliver researched this story and this play and it should be viewed as such. I fucken heart James Cromwell. That'll do pig, that'll do.

Fresh update...the mayor of America, thinks...wait, don't let me ruin your reverent moment...that...ACORN is perpetrating massive voter fraud. OK fine. How does he explain the polling numbers then? No one asks and no one answers. Sonofafuckingdouchnozzle.

UPDATE: I think Joe Scarborough is Canadian. After his last screed on the HORRIBLE, HIDEOUS deficits ::collapses into heaving laughter:: his mouth...I swear to God and this bottle of Jim Beam that I saw daylight between his mouth and the back of his head. He was literally unhinged. So HEY INS. Morning Joe is clearly a Canadian infiltrator...wake up white more southern than where joe came from people. I mean shit...what kinda country is this???

I'm pissed and am typing from the spoken word so please be kind...

Joe: Well sadly the president at this point is too far along in his  8 years to be able to tell us what we really need to hear. The president can try to keep the markets calm but what we need to hear from Barack Obama and John McCain are things that we aren't hearing and that is that we are fighting two wars we've had tax cuts we've had the largest expansion in an entitlement program ever a 7 trillion dollar medicare drug benefit plan on top of that 11 and 1/2 trillion dollar debt of the largest deficit ever this year 500 billion dollars we've got baby boomers retiring we've got an economic meltdown coming we've got two trillion dollars lost in personal pension plans lost in the past few months what we need to hear from them is what you have been saying for some time Mika. And that is America the party's over, you've got to start saving money you've got to cut your credit cards in half you just can't keep living beyond your means and you know what you do that and the government will do that also we'll balance our budgets and make tough decisions together they haven't done that Mika over the last 8 years and we're paying for it now and it only gets worse as baby boomers retire.

Mika: well it's gonna be changing the next generation of spenders in terms of their philosophies and its asking the country to work together with the government that's asking for sacrifice which I guess is a new concept lately. We can talk about that later...

They talk in poorly punctuated run-on sentences. Don't blame me.

Anyway, I'd like to point out Barack Obama's speech YESTERDAY (h/t Adam Sandler)

BARACK OBAMA...YESTERDAY...fer craps sake:

It also means promoting a new ethic of responsibility. Part of the reason this crisis occurred is that everyone was living beyond their means - from Wall Street to Washington to even some on Main Street. CEOs got greedy. Politicians spent money they didn't have. Lenders tricked people into buying home they couldn't afford and some folks knew they couldn't afford them and bought them anyway.

We've lived through an era of easy money, in which we were allowed and even encouraged to spend without limits; to borrow instead of save.

Now, I know that in an age of declining wages and skyrocketing costs, for many folks this was not a choice but a necessity. People have been forced to turn to credit cards and home equity loans to keep up, just like our government has borrowed from China and other creditors to help pay its bills.

But we now know how dangerous that can be. Once we get past the present emergency, which requires immediate new investments, we have to break that cycle of debt. Our long-term future requires that we do what's necessary to scale down our deficits, grow wages and encourage personal savings again.

The extra special funniest part of all this is that they showed a clip of that speech at the beginning of the show. Just not THIS clip.

Motherfucker. I'm slowly losing my mind. My evidence is that I backed up my fucking TIVO 50 times to capture that banal conversation between Joe and Mika for you guys.

I'm so fucked...

UPDATE: Joe the intern-killer thinks Paul Krugman is closed-minded and he wouldn't give him the Pulitzer much less the Nobel prize. Mother of God...make it stop. Teh stupid, it is hurting me and my can haz thinking vision thing etc. thank you. fuck-ity P.S. The music on this show too often reminds me of my experiences of The Bear Bar on Broadway/high seventies. It's all sticky floors, late nights and strangers. Fairly pretty and young strangers but still...eww. Why does morning Joe want to inject fascism and the depredations of youth into my morning? Why? P.P.S. OMG...I can't bear it. Hold me, this in insane. I can't even type what this douchnozzle is saying now. I can't. I can't. I'm in agony. Why am I watching? Now I hate myself.

Tips for transcription

I'll try to punctuate if anyone cares...if its unreadable or something. Joe is a living run on sentence, so it will be difficult. If anyone feels it's necessary I will do it.

You Can't Pay Attention To Joe...

It's by far the most entertaining morning news show (and the music is absolutely, 100%, top-notch), but Joe's always going to be a blowhard. Some more days than others. This week, he hasn't been in the studio, and I think that is making him much worse.

Just hope that when McCain comes out with his (SURPRISINGLY) weak economic plan, Joe doesn't spill his half-and-half all over the table.

Re: You Can't Pay Attention To Joe...

It's hurting me today. It's so stupid and the moral equivalence and lack of balance is agony. Arrgh!

The music is good, it just makes me think of things that shouldn't be thought of. I'm an old hag, those days are over ;)

Re: Morning Joe and the Truth

Joe Scarborough is amazing.  He's a perfect conductor of Conventional Wisdom; you rarely see one that pure bred outside of captivity.

Re: Morning Joe and the Truth

He lulls me into a false sense of security. This is why my hate is so white hot. He salts his partisanship with a pinch of pragmatism to make me forget what a scum sucker he is.

...and Mika...don't get me started...totally fahrklempt on the subject of Mika

ugh

Well fine, I'll just comment in my own Diary

OK, Luke Russert just freaks me out. Not because he reminds me of his dad, just because when he's on my tee vee he looks like every kid who was ever dragged into an arena he was unprepared for.

He slumps, he frowns, he is not well spoken.

He's like 22, no shame in any of that.

However, I'd like to know why the hell I'm supposed to listen to his searing insight into the minds of "youth voters". I'm sorry, but if I were 21 and some gap-toothed daddy's boy called me a "youth-voter"...I'd show him my MF-ing voter card and we'd play World of Warcraft.

I can't remember what I was talking about...

Joe is a sniveling republican brat!

I get sick of hearing his rants, he is literally crapping his drawers because Obama is winning, he was trying to make a case today of why America can't question Obama's terrorist ties without race getting injected, I would like to turn the table, why isn't anyone connecting McCain the same way? Gordon Liddy, Iran Contra, Arizona Mafia, Lobbyist..etc.  Obama is much cleaner than McCain and to harp on a very weak link like Ayers while ignoring McCain's much stronger links, reeks of partisanship, media double standards, and racial double standards.  

Mika is basically Joe's side kick, he backs her down during the few times she dares to challenge him...in my opinion they both suck and I have decided to start watching CNN in the morning and tuning back into MSNBC at night when we have so voices of reason at the anchor desk.
