MSNBC’s a.m. gabfest Morning Joe is pretty dependable for some early day mirth. The cast of Democrat party devotees – including the hornless RINO Joe Scarborough – are dependably in the tank as they speak from their “Media Matters for America” screenplays. Their politician visits only deviate from the Dems for GOP contrarians like Liz Cheney or Adam Kinzinger, journalist contributors are predictably leftist, the bubble-thinking is a daily component, and the overall content is good for little more than getting tipped off what the day’s talking points will be on social media.

Moulton, when he was pimping for high-speed rail said, “We should be able to get to New York in an hour and a half!” Seth seems unfamiliar with the concept of airline travel, but let’s give him his time. He then went on with there being a concept of being able to connect Chicago and Atlanta. For one, this is not exactly
