Joe Scarborough Uses Rosen Controversy To Criticize... Allen West? April 13, 2012

In an apparent effort to keep his left-wing masters at MSNBC happy, Joe Scarborough decided to use the ill-advised comments of Hilary "Ann Romney never worked a day in her life" Rosen to launch a broadside attack against none other than Rep. Allen West.

And those who don't condemn Rep. Allen West for his recent "There are 80 Communists in Congress" comments.

And, for that, Mr. Scarborough will undoubtedly feel the wrath of "cheetos-eating bloggers" everywhere. This one included.

[Sweeping the orange dust off of my keyboard]

The segment opened with a discussion about the Hilary Rosen controversy. Scarborough's first two words pretty much some up his attitude about the whole thing: "Come on".

Scarborough then launched into a "Hilary Rosen isn't really connected to Obama or the Obama campaign" argument. The facts he stated there cannot be disputed.

But memo to Mr. Scarborough: There is a reason why people like David Axelrod, Jim Messina, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, and.... oh, yeah... Barack Obama acted so quickly to distance themselves from her statement.

And that reason is: The statement she made put the Democrats in danger of losing the whole "war on women" argument. In fact, it probably already cost them dearly, and they will likely abandon the whole strategy.

For someone who used to be a politician, Mr. Scarborough doesn't seem to understand this political reality all that well.

But then Mr. Scarborough launches into a "Why doesn't Mitt Romney condemn Allen West for saying that there are 80 Communists in Congress?" line.

That line will undoubtedly fly at your cocktail parties, Mr. Scarborough. But I think that most people with common sense see it as nothing more than a silly question in light of the current political climate.

The exchange then devolved into a shoutfest which makes for some great television. Scarborough takes on both Peggy Noonan and Michael Steele, insisting on bringing Allen West into a debate about a stupid statement made regarding stay-at-home moms.

Peggy Noonan referred to the Allen West association as "mischievous". From there she had to practically beg to finish making her point. She went on to condemn Rep. West's comments.

Then Donny Deutsch jumped in, but nobody cares what he thinks.

Unfortunately, though, only Ms. Noonan was willing to call out Scarborough for his ridiculous attempt to bring Allen West into a very important political debate about stay-at-home moms.

Scarborough: "I am not carrying the Democratic card right now."

Of course not.
