One of the comments on the Huffington post said it best of Joe Scarborough...


Just imagine... developmentally arrested at fourteen, elected to Congress and has his own cable show.

Joe Scarborough tries to put a velvet glove on it, but he advocates for the iron fist of fascism, just as surely as the crew at FOX News. Let's summarize the long term position of Joe and his Republican friends:

Hillary Pantsuit Lawsuit


The Justice Department is asking a judge to dismiss a lawsuit that argues that Hillary Rodham Clinton cannot legally serve as secretary of state.

The suit filed by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch is based on an obscure section of the Constitution called the emoluments clause. It says no member of Congress can be appointed to a government post if the pay was increased during the lawmaker's current term.

All Hat No Cattle Weekend Commentary

Put terrorists in custody of Cheney, where they belong

The Obama Administration’s plan to close the terrorist detention facility in Guantanamo, Cuba, and move the prisoners to the United States has sparked intense debate, especially over where to hold them here.
All Hat No Cattle endorses the closing of Gitmo and the transfer of the detainees to the United States – specifically to Wyoming, home state of former Vice President Dick Cheney.
What better a place for these men to receive their three hots and a cot each day than the ultra-conservative fiefdom of Grand Inquisitor Cheney?
And talk about security! It would be pretty darn tough for a band of fellow terrorists’ intent on springing their comrades from prison to penetrate the high plains desert and mountain ranges of Wyoming.
Imagine a van load of Arabic- or Pashtun-speaking fellows trying to travel through that state unnoticed. Even wearing cowboy hats wouldn’t disguise them adequately.
And doesn’t everyone in Wyoming carry a gun at all times? It would be like having an army of private security surrounding the terrorist prison. Not to mention the former VP’s own Praetorian Guard. Cheney’s got so many personal body guards that he doesn’t need the Secret Service protection he also receives.
Then there is the matter of Cheney’s continuing role in the handling of the detainees.
The don of enhanced interrogation techniques is out of a job now, so perhaps he could be convinced to serve as warden of the new terrorist prison. Of course, the facility would have full wheelchair access so Cheney could scoot around the cell blocks and interrogation cells to personally supervise the questioning and punishment of prisoners.
Part of that punishment would entail audio and video programming. Translated broadcasts of the Rush Limbaugh and Laura Ingraham radio shows would be piped into the cells at high volume for the prisoners’ edification. The television in the common area would be locked on FOX News.
Reading material also would be strictly regulated, of course.
No Koran for these guys in the custody of Warden Cheney, no sirree. They would read only the King James version of The Bible. They would read it and like it – or get extra time on the waterboard.
That particular activity would be part of every prisoner’s daily regimen.
Sean Hannity of FOX would be contracted to supervise the waterboarding, which he has assured the nation repeatedly is not torture. Hannity even offered to undergo the procedure to prove that it is not torture, but we’re not holding our collective breath waiting for him to fulfill his promise.
Besides, Cheney and Hannity and their ilk have decided that we should make suspected terrorists practice holding their breath. While being waterboarded.
