In some ways this is a nothing sort of clip, as Scarborough and Halperin have featured these type of discussions pretty much daily on MSNBC's Morning Joe as this election wore on. Democrats are in trouble, worried that safe states have now suddenly become competitive depending on the vagaries of some useless partisan polling by companies no one ever heard of before this election (or worse, Rasmussen). The list is endless really.

Today's installment of concern trolling about how close this election is, and how "nobody knows who will win", features tea-leaf readings about how Bill Clinton is in Minnesota today (never mind that he was in North Dakota last night helping Senate hopeful Heidi Heitkamp try to win in a red state, which she just might), and that suddenly Minnesota, Michigan, and Pennsylvania are now "in play". None of which is really true of course, but that doesn't matter to them. They're selling a narrative and are sticking to it, come hell or high water.

All of which will be over soon when this election finally and mercifully ends, and hopefully these clowns can spend the next several months wondering what the hell went wrong for Mitt Romney, when they should have been asking what ever went right to put him in the position to get elected in the first place.

Can you help us out?
