You Have Been Banned from MSNBC

We haven't discussed much in the way of current events around here of late. Hell, we haven't discussed much of anything. But there was a story that caught my eye that is certainly worth commenting on.

It seems Markos Moulitsas, one of the founders of the SBNation blog sites, had a dust-up with MSNBC's "Morning Joe" anchor Joe Scarborough. The details are not overly clear, but it seems that Scarborough and MSNBC got mad at Moulitsas for bringing up an old point of contention. This led both sides to descend into name calling, the end result of which is that Moulitsas was blacklisted from presenting his views on MSNBC.

So, let's see here. Moulitsas was banned for making snarky comments? Where ever would MSNBC get the idea to react like that?

Markos Moulitsas is a$$hole. Joe Scarborough is a sellout. Nobody watches MSBNC except chimps. What is the point?
Yes, of course, "nobody watches MSNBC except chimps." Clever. No, really.

The point (though I guess one has to be a chimp to get it) is to compare Scarborough to the owner/operator of a certain SBNation blog in Chicago (one fond of banning people who disagree with him in terms he finds too "colorful")...irony you know...seeing as how Markos Moulitsas founded the SBNation sites and is now on the other end of the banning treatment.

But I guess irony is just for chimps.
