Cage Match: Matthews vs. Priebus

Okay, so I said I wasn’t going to waste pixels on the GOP convention, but that didn’t mean I wouldn’t notice — and post — some of the sideshows.

And I love the way the bystanders like Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are absolutely mortified by such incivility on their TV show. Much pearl clutching ensued. Half a kudo to Tom Brokaw for limply coming to Chris’s defense.
