Joe Scarborough announces he's done pretending to be a Republican

Morning Joe is pretty sure this is very important.

Years ago, I was doing a radio show when the subject of MSNBC came up.  I, correctly, stated that it was an insane fish tank where radical leftists tried to one-up each other in a never-ending battle to see who could say the craziest thing on air.  The host disagreed, pointing out that their entire broadcast day began with a Republican-hosted show. He was referring to "Morning Joe" and my ensuing laughter probably ate up a good three minutes of air time.

The fact is that Joe Scarborough has been the God-Emperor of the RINOs for decades.  He's the poster boy for squishy, believe-in-nothing, beltway elitists.  Like McCain, he's built a solid career based on the pretense of being a Republican - but generally spends most of his time attacking the party's ideals.

Fortunately, he's giving all that up.  He's done playing GOP. Trump's jokes about Mika's facelift are, apparently, the straws that have broken the camel's back.

Now, in an announcement that's as utterly shocking and important as that time Barry Manilow announced he was gay, Joe Scarborough has announced he's leaving the GOP. From here on out, he'll be regurgitating Sean Hannity's "registered independent" spiel.

It's worth noting that he made the stunning declaration on the Stephen Colbert show.  Colbert is a dyed-in-the-wool left-winger with whom RINO's love to curry favor, probably so they can show how enlightened they are. As you might expect, Joe cranked the self-rightousness up to eleven during his appearance.

If you're not one of the lucky viewers who got to witness this historic event live, never fear. You can watch the interview below, and marvel at the fact that A: Joe seems to think people will be surprised by this, and B: Joe appears to be attempting to increase his height by employing 3-4 inches of Eraserhead hair.
