In this discussion with Republican Gomorrah author Max Blumenthal, Morning Joe‘s Joe Scarborough tries to portray the Glenn Beck/Michelle Bachman/wingnut tea-bagger fringe as acceptable, par-for-the-course manifestations of political dispute. And the acquiescent timidity shown by Mika Brzezsinski and Tom Brokaw, obviously uncomfortable with the concept of calling a spade a spade, is, to me, fairly deplorable.
