Algonquin Round Tables
As Jonathan Higgins used to say so well, "Oh. My. GOD!!" Has there ever been a less credible, more jaw-droppingly strange political roundtable than the one MSNBC has on the air now?
Chris "Tweety" Matthews.
Stephen A. "Quite Frankly" Smith.
Tucker "I Beat Up Gay Men" Carlson.
And twangy pollster Craig Crawford.
Crawford seems to have the Rachel Maddow role tonight, trying in vain to keep things calm and sane. And points to Smith for calling Bush "a little bit of a dictator." But-- really-- who the hell put this thing together? And is there a line of hot air balloons outside the studio, waiting to be filled?
