We're Not Going To Scarborough's Fair
For a number of years now, MSNBC's morning bloviator Joe "Squint" Scarborough has been surrounding himself with political and media sycophants on his show to plug their campaign, a book or just themselves, and to "amen" most of what Squint says. As a result, his head's grown, so it's not a surprise that Squint was in New Hampshire signing copies of his new book and playing coy about running for the Republican nomination for President in 2016. Yes, seriously.
Of course, even if he pretended to run, Squint knows he wouldn't make it out of the first couple of primaries given his RINO status among the mouth breathing, raging voting base of his party. But Squint needs to sell books, so let the speculation continue. For a party that's as dysfunctional as the Rethuglican/New Confederate/Stupid Party, he's as credible as fellow celebrity Donald "Rump" Trump.
