Charles Pierce is awesome in this clip.
He refuses to let MSNBC off the hook for booking right-wing nut cases in the morning while acting as if it is purer than Caesers Wife during Countdown in the evening.
Pierce hammers the 20-something guest bookers at CNN, CNBC, MSNBC, Fox and the other TV networks for giving air time to people who are well and truly crazy.
David Shuster tries to bring it back to the nut job Liz Cheney, but in fact Mr. Pierce is making a bigger -- and far more important -- point.
Keith Oberman should step up and step in to invite Pierce back on this show for a longer segment.
So what if Pierce will not let MSNBC off the hook? Sauce for the goose, is sauce for the gander. Let's see if Keith Olbermann has a real set of balls -- and any real power to call a little bit of heat down on his own network.
Charles Piere's book, by the way is entitled Idiot America: How Stupidity Became a Virtue in the Land of the Free. Nice title. It just made my reading list.
