Joe flirted with the idea of running against Barack Obama. An ex–Florida congressman and a moderate Republican, he conferred with fellow centrists just before the primaries, occasionally shuttling around with his friend Mike Bloomberg. (From time to time, Mika’s father, Zbigniew, Jimmy Carter’s national-security adviser, weighed in with sage advice, as did a handful of George W. alumni.)

Joe could be a good choice. He’s a smart dude and knows a thing or two about reaching out to the other side — something the Republican Party (or even independent voters) might need if Romney loses in November.

Everyone at Morning Joe considers Pat Buchanan to be a friend and a member of the family. Even though we strongly disagree with the contents of Pat’s latest book, Mika and I believe those differences should have been debated in public.
A statement from Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” • Disputing the recent firing of Pat Buchanan by the network in the wake of controversial comments in his most recent book, ”Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?” The book, which has drawn the ire of numerous groups, led to a lengthy suspension for the former presidential candidate, who spent a decade at MSNBC. Think the network made the right move? Or should they have let the crew of “Morning Joe” grill him?

Breakdown on the set of MSNBC: A clip from The Late Show with David Letterman sent Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski into an uncontrollable giggle fit Monday morning.

The Letterman clip, which lampooned former Vice President Dick Cheney’s heart problems, tickled the news anchor’s funny bone twice during the show.

Brzezinski’s co-workers seemed unamused. Co-host Joe Scarborough thought the David Letterman skit was in “bad taste.”

Viewer response was less than positive. A producer for Morning Joe said he’d “never seen such angry e-mails about anything.”

Brzezinski defended her giggles, saying the Letterman skit was a piece of “funny television.” [Video: MSNBC]

You screw over the moderates, they’re gonna organize. That appears to be the message of “No Labels,” a new citizen-focused political group that includes such spurned political figures as Michael “Moderate God” Bloomberg, “Morning” Joe Scarborough, Mike “screwed by Christine O’Donnell” Castle, Charlie “screwed by Marco Rubio” Crist and Evan “I’ve had enough of this crap so I’m quitting the Senate” Bayh among its ranks. Each of those guys will be taking part in the webcast the group will use to launch its platform: “Not left. Not right. Forward.” We expect the partisans (on both sides) to dismiss this crazy idea in 3 … 2 … 1 … source

Joe Scarborough gets Olbermann treatment; world yawns

  • three number of candidates Keith Olbermann donated to, which led to his recent two-day suspension
  • eight number of candidates Joe Scarborough donated to; he’ll also get suspended for two days source

» Standards and stuff: It’s probably good to note that this double-standard between MSNBC and Fox remains bizarre. Fox News hosts (most notably Sarah Palin, who regularly endorses candidates and runs her own political action committee) don’t get treated this way. Honestly, we think that MSNBC has to loosen their standards for their political commentators. This is going to eventually come to a head in a more public way than either of these incidents. Know why we know this? Because Joe Scarborough is considering running on a presidential ticket with Michael Bloomberg in 2012. You think this crosses a line? What if that happens, guys?

Never too early: Here’s the first round of 2012 presidency news

  • obvious Sarah Palin, whose last two years have essentially been a dry run for the presidency, says she could possibly beat Obama in 2012.
  • spiffy In recent days, there’s been talk of Michael Bloomberg and MSNBC host Joe Scarborough running together on a moderate ticket.
  • vain In recent weeks, Donald Trump has been making a stink about running in 2012, too. Thing is, he brings this up every presidential cycle.
