Joe Scarborough, Condescending Twit

If you thought Joe Scarborough sending his court jester Willie Geist to ask Big Tent bloggers if they eat Cheetos and blog from their mother's basement was a d*ck move, watch how he treats David Shuster in this clip from "Morning Joe." Has there ever been anyone more petty and condescending as he is here? I have to give props to Shuster; I would have gotten up and decked Joe if he ever talked to me like that.

SCARBOROUGH: What about your party? What’s your party? David Shuster, David, what’s your party?

SHUSTER: I have no party. I’m a complete independent.

SCARBOROUGH: Oh, you’re independent. Just like all..

SHUSTER: I’ll show you my voting card. I’ll show you how I’m registered later.

SCARBOROUGH: Oh...I feel so comforted by the fact that you’re an Independent. I bet everyone at MSNBC has “independent” on their voting cards. “Oh, we’re down the middle now.” Go ahead, David. No, no, go ahead. You’re an Independent David. Go ahead. Talk about my party. Go ahead.

SHUSTER: Are you done?

SCARBOROUGH: Do you never watch this show?

SCARBOROUGH: Because you didn't show up three times in a row! Three times you slept through your alarm and didn't come on this show.

SHUSTER [to fellow panelists]: That's how the argument works.
