Punch Chris Instead

Somethings in life defy logic and 2 of those head smackers are : Given their abysmally low ratings, how is MSNBC still on the air, and why would any politician not a flaming fringe lefty even bother to go on that network? Granted most heavy hitters don’t bother, the 12 or so viewers that regularly watch, they are converts anyway, why sing to the choir? Trolls like Debbie Wildebeast Shultz and Alan Geico Caveman Grayson have been regulars but I think that’s because of all the free MSNBC gear they get, the staffers love wearing that crap. But back to the grown ups, why serious folks would appear, that was the conundrum, until I saw this exchange:

This is what Alan West should have done. Despite all the support he has received today, the old saying about wrestling with a pig/getting dirty certainly applies here, wallowing in the mud is something THEY do, they are good at it and don’t mind the dirt, but now I think he regrets the email and wishes his cooler head had prevailed.

But what Joe Walsh has demonstrated to us is that if you want to let ‘er rip, go on Mr. Tinkles’ show, he isn’t going to listen anyway, you won’t convince the baker’s dozen worth of viewers that he is a nimrod (that is why they like him) and he lost all credibility years ago as being a serious anything, go on and have fun. Use it as a cleansing experience, a catharsis, clear out your carburetor and feel invigorated. And I hope every single guest who ever goes on his show rips him about that tingly leg comment, that is his cross that he needs to bare for the rest of his professional (ha) career. That was probably better for Joe than 40 minutes on the treadmill.
