(From TWD)


Proud Maryland native and House member Elijah Cummings (D) really was annoyed this morning with Mo(u)rning Jo(k)e laughing off voter suppression efforts throughout the country from Republicans yesterday.

And he certainly expressed that quite candidly to them face to face.

"This thing, I listen to you all Joe yesterday, y'all were kind of laughing about it. It's a very serious issue. 

 It's an emotional (issue) . I predicted a very long time ago that African-American people would come out in record numbers, and that is already happening in my district. They are coming out in records numbers because they do not like the idea that there seems to be a concerted effort to stop them for voting."  
Scarborough blamed David Gregory, who is even worse of course, with his silence on the issue on Meet The Press all throughout the election season despite supposedly being a professional multi-million dollar journalist. And his silence there and then for everyone to see.

Kathy Kay looked shocked and perplexed, wondering why would Republicans try and deny people, including black Republicans, the right to vote. It was Beltway centrist media figures off their high, seclusion bubble in D.C. and smacked into reality for a rare refreshing time.

It was a telling incident of many on the Mo(u)rning Jo(k)e of a election show, three hours more than its regular version of sad, vapid centrist dribble.

Thankfully Elijah Cummings was not tolerating their nonsense, especially Gregory and Scarborough's, not one bit. 

(From The Whole Delivery, hearing your Election Day stories, whether it was smooth or there were shenanigans, have a great day and God Bless).

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
