On MSNBC's Morning Joe this morning, so-called Republican Joe Scarborough actually displayed a bit of sanity and party loyalty when he defended Senator Ted Cruz and other conservatives against a ridiculous attack from his co-host Mika Brzezinski.
“He does defend the right a little bit here. This is one of his rare moments where he actually does take a sort of conservative position on something,” Pat said of Scarborough. “You know every once in a while he has to. He has to pretend.”
BRZEZINSKI: That shows just how much they hate him and don't love the country. And that's what's scary about this. If this comes down -- if they actually go through with this -- this is about something else ‑‑
SCARBOROUGH: Are you saying they don't love the country?
BRZEZINSKI: Are you saying they do?
SCARBOROUGH: Yes, of course I'm saying they do.
BRZEZINSKI: Ted Cruz and his group. Loves the country?
SCARBOROUGH: Yes. I have never once suggested that even ‑‑
BRZEZINSKI: We disagree.
SCARBOROUGH: -- that even the craziest left-wing lunatic doesn’t love the country.
“Isn’t that amazing,” Pat asked.
“I mean he's just angling for that position,” Glenn said. “He's like, ‘Okay, I'm a conservative, but I'm your kind of conservative. I'll guard the other conservatives.’”
