The following Q&A excerpt was taken from this morning's Morning Joe on MSNBC, courtesy of the website Newsbusters.
SCARBOROUGH: Sarah Palin's people put up little targets: these are targeted districts, on a PAC website that nobody sees. Nobody, right? So that's that context. Kind of isolated. Hoffa delivers a speech before the President of the United States comes up and delivers a speech at the same spot. That context is actually far more serious than the context of a website somewhere out in the ethernet that nobody sees. The context I think it more troubling in this case."We're going to pile on Sarah Palin. Any sane person knows that we're going to do that." I am no Sarah Palin fan, and I sincerely hope she does not enter the 2012 primary race, but I have disagreements with her on substance, not from some childish cultlike phobia as Barnicle admits to here.
BARNICLE: Well first of all, Sarah Palin is going to get brutalized and demeaned by the media no matter what she does. So I don't think you can compare Sarah Palin's targeting of districts with what Jim Hoffa says before a labor group in Detroit. We're going to pile on Sarah Palin. Any sane person knows that we're going to do that.
To him and his ilk, objectivity isn't even a consideration. Remember that the next time you are being told by the MSM how foolish you are.
