    I watch Morning Joe every morning. He's a actually a "thinking" republican. Can't find too many of those around anymore. BTW, Morning Joe is way better than New Day.

    In 2000, republicans discovered that the only way they can win the White House is to stop counting votes and let the supreme? court decide.

    leftists and liberals just can't come to grips with reality. bush won in 2000 no matter which way you look at it. democrats trying to pick and choose which places to recount was a total fraud. you recount everything, not just places that favor democrats. lefitsts are cheaters and frauds and try to steal elections all the time.

    Poor Joe. This performance was just months before he resigned as Congressman from Pensacola, FL. Tends to end your political career when a young 20 something female intern is found dead in your district office. Google it. It's true. Oh, and if you ever run into poor Joe, don't even think about bringing the death up to him. He gets just a wee bit defensive!

    Yeah, but .... Barack Obama won in 2008 and 2012, and there are folks who deny both votes as being legit.

    So you're going to show the clip of Jon Stewart that got the show cancelled and which turned out to be the best episode that you folks produced?

    In 2000 they should have allowed the counting of the votes until they were all looked at, especially the ones from overseas. To stop the counting when it was so close by the Republican lady who worked for Jeb Bush and then decided by a right leaning Supreme Court was very undemocratic and made the US system a laughing stock around the world. How can the US promote democratic voting around the world when it thumbed its nose at it at home? One can only imagine how much more peaceful the world might be had Bush and Cheney not been put in charge (they were not elected). There might not have been the Afghanistan war and for sure no Iraq war because that was a war of choice by Bush. History will analyze this closely and maybe not favourable.

    BTW, you mispelled your name! hahahaha... gotcha!

    But I agree 100%, we need voter reform. We need to cull out all of the stupid. low IQ voters that keep voting for politicians that want to give people everything, without having to work for it. We have far too many tax free riders in this country. That needs to stop before they all suck the country dry.

    Maybe it's time to revisit this mess. They definitely tried it again in 2012 and will surely try it in 2016.

    Ah the 2012 election...... I can't remember being so joyous.... The look on Willard and Anne's faces was priceless. Willard looking like a deer caught in headlights because he just KNEW he was going to be POTUS. After all FOX and Rove assured him a win. His arrogance in only preparing an acceptance speech was so blatant and hilarious..... Oh what a night to remember.......

    Are you going to show the most classic episode of all: Jon Stewart?

    Your so right anon. We need to stop giving the rich all the tax breaks middle class can't use.when your tax rate is 39%,and you pay 10-13%,then your absolutely right.perfect place to start, where it brings the most revenue. Mitt and his ilks, otherwise it's just not fair to have to pay your tax rate at one income level: but not the other.fair play is fair right?
