all medieval on Ron Christie. Or maybe I was hoping. Alter was cool as a cucumber.

I missed the gist of what was going on on Martin Bashir this early evening but Christie's hand chops and pointing and leaning across the table and teeth gritting made me want to hit him.

The part I heard was Alter telling Christie how the 8% figure for unemployment for the Obama Administration was derived and then said it wasn't ever a promise, but an estimate based on 3rd quarter stats of 2008. Christie was still foaming at the mouth.

Did I mention I despise Christie?

Martin was all the way across the table looking shocked when Christie was lunging at him and doing the chop-chop, point-point, sneering, foaming routine.

Cenk has nothing on cross eyed old yeller Christie. I mean the guy was lucky the segment was over and the insipid and fake SE Cupp was brought on to say how much she loves Rick Santorum. As it was, somebody probably had to wipe the table down and  wring the spittle from Martin's tie.

MSNBC needs to ditch these desperate "balancing" pundits. Earlier on Morning Joe, Mark  "What a Dick" Halperin practically bit David Axelrod's head off with some inane bullshit.

And in other news,  Anne Romney doesn't know how to  pronounce  mischievous. It has 3 syllables Anne, not four.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
