I never thought I'd say this, but, please, get the Joe back into Morning Joe. I've developed a habit of watching this show for as long as I can take it, which with Joe on I can watch for 2 hours, but without Joe, it's unbearable -- the Leftist spirit of the program is out of control, and the conversations are painful to listen to and watch. Donny Deutsch (or however it's spelled), a semi-regular, started off comparing Walker to a nazi and totalitarian, after the Morning Joe crew have previously lambasted all "nazi" references as an inappropriate smear -- Mika didn't call him on it. Except for Pat Buchanan, everyone on the program, Harold Ford, Mike Barnicle, Donny, and, later, Nicholas Kristof, all practically ignored the Wisconsin Democrat's behavior of hiding out, and the mob rule actions of union workers, but excoriated Walker for doing what voters elected him to do. It's incredible.
I couldn't watch but an hour, and when Kristof came on and started his whining, it was just too much. Harold Ford pretended he couldn't understand how Gov Walker's actions help the budget, although Buchanan explained four times. The Democrats are falling apart.
One section of the program I thought was appropriate -- when they made fun of Newt Gingrich's confession that he was working so hard to help the country he had an affair and mistreated his wife who had cancer. Gingrich was ruined years ago, and now he appears to be totally out of touch with reality. Republicans don't need Gingrich -- he's a mistake from the past, although at one time he was a fire breather who showed political courage. Now, Gingrich is an integrity damaged has-been.
