Scarborough Uses Bayh Interview To Bash The Left

Scarborough uses this interview with Evan Bayh to attack bloggers on the left for being too mean to his buddy Evan Bayh and play more of this can't we all get along game Bayh's been singing since he announced his retirement.

Bob Cesca hit the nail on the head with this "half a loaf" nonsense out of Bayh today:

Bayh is really pathetic. While chickening out because being in Congress is so hard and people argue about important issues, he scolded the left by suggesting, "Some progress is better than none." And, "Half a loaf is better than none."

Well, first, I would argue that half a loaf is better than none, only if the goal is to always shoot for for the full loaf (damn I hate the "loaf" metaphor, by the way). Bayh, on the other hand, routinely aims for just the half a loaf.

Exactly. He's done nothing but undermine the agenda of the Democratic Party. "Half a loaf" for progressive Democrats who want some actual reform is the public option, since single payer would be the whole loaf. And of course in the clip above when Katrina Vanden Heuvel tries to ask Evan Bayh about the real problem with the Senate which is the filibuster and the money influencing its members, Joe and Mike make sure the segment ends before she can do any follow up. Scarborough needs to just move on over to ClusterFox where he belongs.
