A: They don’t show the clip, but talk about it in the abstract.

I wonder why they don’t show it on Morning Joe? Likely because it is the most bi-partisan moment on the entire network. Later in the day they are talking to their niche market and they wouldn’t mind burning Sarah Palin at the stake.

If they really thought O’Donnell was so impressive they’d try to get the blogger she went after on TV or at least comment on what she wrote:

In one day I met a role model, and met the liberal media and their crafty schemes. I fell prey to liberal bias, but I’d like to think I did an okay job. We always want do-overs, and I can assure you if I had a do-over with Miss O’Donnell you’d see a much more prepared (well rested) and ready to go at it side of this 17 year old. But unlike Norah I didnt have my note cards with me. I was forced to think on the spot and answer a gotcha question. Her goal was clear, make this teenager look like an uneducated Palin supporting buffoon. To liberals, and the 5 people who watch MSNBC she succeeded. To conservatives, she was the only buffoon during that interview.

Ah Harold Ford: I guess you aren’t above playing “Are you smarter with your note cards than a 17 year old without hers”

And note how he mentioned it as a sideline saying it was “a reporter” not mentioning that it was an MSNBC “Star”. How subtle can you get?

No word on how they will do in their own weight class.
