It looks like someone is pushing to get The Young Turks Cenk Uygur his own show on MSNBC. Cenk gave the daily rant segment on The Dylan Ratigan Show and went after "Tea Partiers" Ken Buck, Christine O'Donnell and Sharron Angle for their absurdly on the issue of separation of church and state.

As Cenk pointed out, these wingers are more than happy to push their version of Christianity on the rest of us and want their religion pushed into our politics, but none of them would be too happy if we had a state sponsored religion, and that religion turned out to be Islam or Mormonism.

Ratigan's show is all over the map with him going between ranting about, and rightfully so the mess that Wall Street has left this country in and the fact that our government hasn't done enough yet to reign them in to bringing on right wingers like Tom Coburn and pretending that he's some rational person that isn't part of the problem with the way our Senate has been functioning, or not functioning and obstructing would be a better description, that deserves to be listened to.

Ratigan almost made up for having on the extremely unfunny P.J. O'Rourke on to tell people not to come out and vote just before Cenk came on. I guess we'll find out before long if he does the same for Cenk Uygur as Keith Olbermann did for Rachel Maddow and helps him get a permanent spot on MSNBC.

Can you help us out?
