Joe Scarborough on Herman Cain Being Frontrunner: 'Blech,' 'Yuck,' 'Jeez'

The unrelenting attacks on Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain continued unabated Friday on MSNBC's Morning Joe.

When Mika Brzezinski addressed the ongoing scandal and Cain's frontrunner status, Joe Scarborough repeatedly said, "Blech," "Yuck" and "Jeez" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

MIKA BRZEZINSKI, CO-HOST: We’re going to start with politics. Let’s get through this Cain stuff, shall we, and then we’ll do the polls. Is that okay?

JOE SCARBOROUGH, CO-HOST: I guess so.

BRZEZINSKI: Ech!

SCARBOROUGH: We’ll charge through it.

BRZEZINSKI: New details…

SCARBOROUGH: Blech!!!

BRZEZINSKI: I know.

SCARBOROUGH: Blech!!!

BRZEZINSKI: I agree.

WILLIE GEIST: It’s officially reached “Call me when it’s over.”

SCARBOROUGH: Yeah. Come on.

GEIST: Who cares?

BRZEZINSKI: I do want to hear what David and Eugene have to say about why this is even at this point.

SCARBOROUGH: Alright, let’s…

BRZEZINSKI: Because the polls show something as well.

SCARBOROUGH: Let’s give him the respectful reading because he is in first place, so go ahead.

BRZEZINSKI: Wow! Frontrunner. New details are emerging…

SCARBOROUGH: Yuck!!!

[Laughter]

SCARBOROUGH: Jeez!

BRZEZINSKI: …about an alleged…

SCARBOROUGH: Sorry.

BRZEZINSKI: …incident that lead a female employee of the National Restaurant Association to accuse the frontrunner…

SCARBOROUGH: Herman Cain.

BRZEZINSKI: …Herman Cain of sexual harassment back in the 1990s. That’s your frontrunner.


As I wrote Wednesday, there increasingly is less and less a difference between Scarborough and any of the other liberal hosts on this disgrace of a so-called news network.

Really is a shame because the format has so much potential.

Unfortunately, Scarborough's incessant attacks on all the Republican presidential candidates has made Morning Joe almost as unwatchable as the painfully biased garbage MSNBC offers in prime time.

Too bad.
