I know conservatives everywhere will be very sad to hear the news that it was just yesterday that MS(LSD)’s ‘Morning Joe’ co-host Joe Scarborough made it official that he is no longer a member of the Republican Party. I know, right? Were you as shocked as I was? Not! So apparently he’s now registered in his home state of Connecticut as an Independent. Scarborough announced his new voter registration status via Twitter finally making good on a series of threats he’s made that he would leave the party. And I’m sure most folks will be bothered by that news about as much as they were bothered to hear that a Tennessee Titan football player, Rishard Williams, has now ‘threatened’ to stop playing football if he has to stand for the national anthem. And I should care about that why?
Anyway, in getting back to Scarborough, making his announcement, he tweeted, “I became an independent today. Here I am holding a copy of Donald Trump’s birth certificate, proving he was born in Nambia.” I can only assume that Scarborough’s rather idiotic attempt at humor was intended to mock the so-called “birthers” who demanded to see ex-president Obummer’s birth certificate after questioning whether he was born in the U.S. Scarborough first announced that he intended to leave the party three months ago during an appearance on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. He told Colbert, “I am a Republican, but I’m not going to be a Republican anymore.” Scarborough, for those unaware, served as a congressman from 1995 to 2001 representing Florida’s First Congressional District.
But look, Scarborough has long been little more than simply a Republican-In-Name-Only (RINO). Not since his days as a Florida congressman, when he apparently did have a fairly solid conservative record, has he taken a position on any issue that could be considered even remotely as conservative. He has, over time, become little more than an overpaid mouthpiece for MS(LSD), one who frequently tends to advocate for the liberal, progressive or, dare I say, Socialist position on those issues that are deemed most important. And if you’re one of those who tune into ‘Morning Joe’ then I’m sure you’ve come to realize how it is that he seldom strays far from the script that has been provided to him. And like Chris Matthews, he’s satisfied to lick the boots of the people in charge and getting rich in the process.
Scarborough has been a NeverTrumper since Day 1 of, then candidate, Donald Trump’s campaign, and has remained an outspoken critic of Trump’s presidency since the election, as well as of those in the Republican Party who chose to vote for him. He most recently described President Trump as being the reason for the “destruction” of the Republican Party and in a tweet on Wednesday said, “The destruction of the Republican Party will be part Trump’s political legacy, and the least damning.” News flash, Joe, and not ‘fake news,” the GOP essentially destroyed itself by putting RINOs like McCain up against Obummer in 2008 and then running another RINO in 2012. And, also by breaking nearly every promise they ever made to the American people. The party hasn’t been a truly conservative party in years.
And by the way, Joe, I do want to take this opportunity to say thanks for finally making it “official”. We out here in the real world have long suspected that you had left the Republican Party a long time ago, and that you have far more in common with Chuckie Schumer and Nancy Pelosi than you do with hardworking Americans. Time after time you’ve made it pretty clear that you’re far more comfortable standing with ‘The Establishment’ than you are in standing with the people. I mean, seriously Joe, when was the last time you actually supported your party or had a conservative thought filter through that anatomical area that YOU like to think of as being your brain? But on the bright side, I guess, at least you won’t have to bother playing “let’s pretend” anymore. You’ve finally come out of the closet.
So Joe was a Republican? Like I said, most of us average folks have long thought of him as one of those guys commonly referred to as a RINO. So it’s good riddance, I say. After all, with ‘friends’ like him ‘pretending’ to be a Republican, or at least pretending to be conservative, who needs enemies here on the Republican side. We have enough of those already! And while he may now claim to be an Independent, what he really is, is nothing more than a traitor, politically speaking of course, a socialist/progressive/liberal Democrat. So I can’t say that I’m not sorry he’s gone, and I hope others like him will leave because they long ago abandoned their base and their values and their principles. Many who call themselves ‘Republicans’ long ago abandoned America and patriotic, hardworking Americans.
And let’s face it, the real purpose behind even having Scarborough on MS(LSD) in the first place is a relatively simple one. That would be for the very same reason that whenever any ‘news’ show needs some Republican willing to bash the president they just call in McCain or Graham who are always happy to oblige. They just need someone with an (R) after their name to try to push the definition of ‘Republican’ further left. Now that it’s finally moving back towards the right, albeit slowly, he’s fulfilling his final purpose, denouncing the GOP to poison the well as much as possible. And like most self-indulging idiots who work in the media, they will call themselves anything that they think will increase their ratings and inflate their ego’s. In my opinion, Scarborough is little more than a waste of skin.
