Joe Scarborough's Sleazy Attack
What the heck
? Pathetic Joe Scarborough, in one of the most insipid pieces of analysis since at least last Monday, claims that Fred Thompson's digs at Mike Huckabee last night were just intended to help John McCain:
JOE SCARBOROUGH: Last night it was so painfully obvious that Fred Thompson went to John McCain yesterday morning [affecting deep Thompsonesque voice] "if I can stay awake through this debate, I'll attack Huckabee for you."
Given that everybody in the world knew that Thompson was making his last stand in South Carolina where he knew Mike Huckabee is his rival for the voters in the Palmetto State, it should have been obvious that Thompson was going to try to score some points off the Huckster. And by all accounts
Is it too late for Fred? Judging by the Luntz focus group who gave Fred an overwhelming victory in the debate it may be premature to say he is too far behind and doesn’t have enough time to rally.
So Scarborough's attack has to be seen as an attempt to ding at least two campaigns, those of Thompson and McCain, and possibly to sew some discord between the McCain and Huckabee folks. Anybody know whom Scarborough's backing? I haven't watched his show since it was Scarborough Country, and even then it was a last recourse if Flava of Love wasn't on.
I like Fred, I really do. And for Scarborough to imply that Thompson is deceiving all his fans in order to help John McCain is disgusting. I know people who are working for Fred, giving of their time to help a man they believe in. Joe Scarborough is saying it's all a game on them.
