Morning Whiner

Markos Moulitsas, the keeper of Daily Kos, has been banned from MSNBC because he hurt Joe Scarborough’s feelings.

According to Markos, MSNBC chief Phil Griffin emailed him this explanation: “I’m hoping this will be only temporary and that the situation can be resolved in a mature fashion, but until then I just don’t know how one could reasonably expect to be welcomed onto our network while publicly antagonizing one of our hosts at the same time.”

Hey, Phil, resolving this in a mature fashion would be not blacklisting someone because of a schoolyard spat via Twitter.

Realizing this will screw whatever chances I have of ever appearing on MSNBC, Joe Scarborough is an incredibly thin-skinned bully who hasn’t got the class to ignore a snarky tweet but go running to your boss to complain. Grow the hell up.
