Is there anything worse on political television than Morning Joe?  I would rather watch Fox News; at least they don't try to make their views seem moderate or mainstream. Watching Mika and Joe stand up for Chris Christie  this morning was a sickening sight to behold.  Mika admits that she's "close friends" with Christie, constantly, and yet that doesn't seem to disqualify from making pronouncements about how his performance yesterday was courageous.  Joe tried to compare Christie's scandals to Benghazi and the supposed IRS scandal, and no one on the show deigned to point out to him that both of these so-called scandals have been thoroughly debunked.  It is understandable, yet uncomfortable, to watch, that all of the guests on the show seem embarrassed to be there and embarrassed on behalf of the hosts. MSNBC needs to do us all a favor and put Mika and Joe out to pasture.

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.
