Chris Matthews — in this clip from Morning Joe — makes a pretty compelling argument for why Sarah Palin will definitely without a doubt one hundred percent certainly you can bet your children's indentured servitude on it win the Republican presidential nomination.
I can't decide whether the very idea of this is more Hahahahahahahahahaha! or Aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!! One thing I do know: The oh-twelve primaries will not be Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…

It's easy to call MSNBC's Joe Scarborough names. For example, here's just a few off the top of my head…
* Second string political pundit who couldn't hack it on Capitol Hill
* Disingenuous messenger for the Republican agenda, tempering his views with the political winds to create the false impression of objectivity; and, of course
But none of those barbs can rob the man of his keen political insight. Offering views on the close New Jersey gubernatorial race, Scarborough writes…
"[T]he Democrats' turnout operation should keep this race tight all night. If the race is instead a blowout, that can only be bad news for the Democrats."
See? Some people couldn't offer that kind of insight. Y'know, people who have spent their entire adult life huffing heavy metal industrial isotopes.
So the next time you're tempted to stick it to old Joe, c'mon, show some respect.

After the jump, coverage of the story continues and Jon takes Brian Williams to task.
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11pm / 10c.

The Texas congressperson says the current Pelosi scandal may be good for the country, in that it may slow down Democrats' efforts to convert the nation into a socialist state.
He also lays blame for our current financial mess at the feet of John Maynard Keynes and warns that the U.S. dollar may be experiencing its last fitful sussurations…
For all I know, Paul is right. I can't even pretend to have any idea what's going on with anything concerning economics.
As a matter of fact, until just now, I thought John Maynard Keynes was Steely Dan's rhythm guitarist on their Two Against Nature tour back in '00.
