Florida Republican Congressman turned MSNBC news anchor Joe Scarborough has apparently once again found a new calling in life. This once respected lawmaker just keeps finding new ways to make himself a laughing stock.
Most recently he seems to be attempting to bridge the gap between talking on TV and singing on TV. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the Morning Joe host has decided that you need a little music to go with your joe, provided by Joe himself.
Via The Daily Caller:
When I heard that Joe Scarborough had recorded an album and even made a music video, I assumed it was a joke. “Very funny, ha ha. Why would he do that, and why would anybody help him? Who in the world would be the intended audience for such a thing?” Such was my naivete.
It’s not a joke. It’s all too real. Joe is mad as hell… at your eyes and ears. They must be punished!
The following music video is five minutes and 24 seconds long. I defy you to watch the whole thing. I don’t think you can do it. I don’t think you want to do it, but even if you wanted to, you couldn’t. It is impossible.
OK, I did watch the whole thing, and I can’t say that I wholeheartedly recommend it, but let me tell you a few overall impressions. While it has many disturbing facets, the whole thing held the air of a coming out confession. This is who he’s always been and now he’s free to be who he wants. It’s OK, Joe, we’ve known for a long time that you were a bleeding heart liberal in hiding.
The other prevailing theme is that maybe we’re getting a peek into the mind of someone who’s tormented with PTSD or the like and he’s made a video trying to re-create the disturbing dreams of a psychotic break. I’m no medical professional, but if those are the kinds of thing going through your head, you might need to see someone about that.
And just in case there was any confusion, the rest of us have to look at you all the time and we’re mystified and horrified as well. We know that journalism is dead, as the video so aptly implies, but we’re not sure that it was anyone other than those on the screen that killed it.
