joe scarborough was a GOP congressman not long ago

yesterday he accused msnbc personalities of not being truly Independents in some very awkward but interesting television

later msnbc’s keith olbermann, who’s “special comments” are almost always anti-republican tells joe scarborough to “get a shovel” when scarborough talks about mccain’s standing in the polls. joe hangs in there and comes across much better than he did earlier in the morning

in matt welch’s bio on mccain “myth of a maverick” welch suggests that the senator is much better as a counter-puncher in debates, i’d have to say that morning joe is probably the same way.
