I'm watching him now on MSNBC...I don't know why.

He's ranting about us not dealing with "thugs", even tho following that reasoning nobody would ever deal with the U.S.

He thinks that prisoners in the old USSR gulags sat around and watched Ronald Reagon and felt inspired....OMFG.

I have to change the channel.....

Yeah, MSNBC thinks that Scarborough is their way "in" with the right. He's so freaking clueless sometimes...

The guy is boring. All he does is whine about the media (that he is a part of) all day long.

Email MSNBC and call for that moron to be removed. He is absolutely a tool for right wing nutbags.

At least Donahue was entertaining with the segment titled "angry white men". Not to mention he had Michael Moore on a couple times. Scarborough is the typical Republican stereotype. He's mean, dull, believes he knows everything, and is a total ripoff of Rush Limbaugh. I don't really watch those nightly political shows except when the weather is lousy outside in the summer. It's basically the same show over and over again with different guests.

The guy is a former congressman so he is far from being an idiot. Can he spell Potato correctly? Yea Qualye was a boob.

Donahue was entertaining too up to a point then it was the same old stuff most political shows are on both sides.

I think i must be the only right winger here. :p

His function is to provide viewers for the ads that run between segments. That is his only function.

In order to get real news and information the people of the US will have to demand it. They will have to take back the air waves from a government whose function is to parcel them out to business for the purpose of making money and establish genuine research institutes totally immune from politics and money to research the truth of what is happening in the world. Tax payer funding of information in the best interests of the common good is perhaps one possibility by which we can save ourselves.

Why was he never challenged about the Intern that was found killed in his office - next to his desk ?

Gary Condit was crucified for an Intern that he knew dissapering and then found murdered.
(I think Condit's a creep and slimey)

Well, I'm not a left-winger. I certainly hope you wouldn't support Scarborough just because you're a self proclaimed right-winger. A clueless idiot should be a clueless idiot, regardless of any political affiliations.

They do that in some countries it is called totalitarianism, communism, and in some cases socialism. And I for one do not want to put the government in control of "best interests of the common good" to give me information
:p

I don't support him but I think he is far from an idiot I think you all just don't agree with him that is all.

Do you know who has the best unbiased nightly newscast? PBS. All the rest are pure garbage.

You probably are right, he likely isn't an idiot. He just play one on TV! ;)

Yea, that sure has worked well in the BBC, with people being forced to pay $180 a year to an organization that clearly has an agenda. Gotta love those "TV inspectors" that drive around detecting who has a TV and who doesn't, sending threatening letters to those who haven't paid.

I thought you preferred Al Jazeera so you could see the faces of dead americans?

MSNBC is clueless. The only half-way decent guy on there is Chris Matthews. Scarborough is just so pathetic, and I am conservative. He really lost me when he went Hollywood a few weeks ago. He had some soap actress on their speaking for the left. What a silly and shameless attempt to boost ratings.
