Joe Scarborough is an idiot and an asshole

I was watching "Morning Joe," with Joe Scarborough on MSNBC, and I saw Scarborough wondering aloud, "why, if he could celebrate Obama's win, why could not the dems celebrate GOP wins in the past?" He wondered why Dems couldn't have been so nice as to celebrate a GOP win when it happened. He was offended by people who said "evangelicals want to take us back to the stone-age."

Joe the pundit is an asshole because he only said that on Dem's victory day in order to throw some false guilt on his opponents. It was the emotionally manipulative comment of an utterly clueless asshole. He is an idiot because he thought it would work. The wondering Scarborough indulged isn't really celebrating anything, it's complaining about the victors being happy. Scarborough didn't look happy like the people dancing and singing in Chicago. Second, even if Joe the pundit were celebrating, the FReepers sure aren't. Nor is Ann Coulter or Rush Limbaugh.

Just read what some of those evangelicals that Scarborough cheers for have written about Obama:

...but what other threats does an Obama administration pose? We have been clearly warned by his running mate, Joe Biden, that America will suffer some form of attack within the first 6 months of Obama's administration. However, unlike Joe, I do not believe this "attack" will be a test of Obama's mettle. Rather, I perceive it will be a planned effort by those with whom Obama truly sympathizes to take down the America that is threat to tyranny.

So, Obama sympathizes with terrorists who want to take down the America and replace it with tyranny?

Of course, the right-wing evangelicals didn't bring us back to the stone-age, nor did they turn America into some fascist/Nazi state like Chris Hedges was predicting. The FReepers, in their extreme mirror image, think that Obama's win means a victory for evil. Why should they be happy about that? It's hard to celebrate the opponent's victory when the opponent is viewed as a destructive force.

No, the GOP didn't give us the stone age, but they did give us a war on science, tortured prisoners, two long term wars, financial collapse and corruption.

We don't want you to celebrate Joe, we want you to suffer, cry and then wake up and realize that your party, your old ideas, have been tested and failed. You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting.

And beginning today, our ideas and our candidate will be weighed and measured.

Of course, in comparing Democrats reactions to a Conservative president-elect to a (hypothetically) more calm Republican reaction to a liberal president-elect, he willfully ignores one major detail: the circumstances of George Bush's election! A close race, with a major deciding point botched due to faulty ballots, which led to a decision made by the Court as to, ultimately, who would become President. And the later re-election of that same fluke out of fear and in complete ignorance of the damage that he was doing.

If Barack Obama had put us in a similar situtation, or was in a similarly contested race, Joe might have a point. But, without that, he is being a disingenuous ass.
