    I am appalled, just appalled.  I'm refreshing their videos page and hope they'll put it up soon.

    Here's the email I sent to letters@msnbc.com:

    I am watching Road to the White House with Joe Scarborough.  I have never been so insulted by his condescending manner to a guest as what I just listened to him say to Rachel Maddow.

    Rachel had a different point of view (from Joe and all the other guests) of Obama's stance on the Iraq war and the withdrawal.  At the end, he intentionally humiliated her by singling her out for ridicule by having the other guests "raise their hands" if they agreed with her.  WTF?! And THEN, and this is where he stepped over the line, he further ridicules her by comparing Rachel's laugh to Hillary's cackle?!

    I demand an apology on Rachel's behalf (whose thought on the issue they were discussing I happen to agree with) and expect Joe to deliver it, to her face, ON AIR.  Rachel has more class than Joe ever could hope to have.

    I only watch Road to the White House simply because she is almost always a guest, and a sometimes host.  Unless Joe issues his apology to Rachel, I'll take RWH off my viewing schedule.

    Sincerely,

    Terre
