From the “even a broken clock is right twice a day” desk, former Republican congressman turned liberal media superstar Joe Scarborough is hedging on his anti-Trumpism.
Scarborough and his loving bobblehead fiancé Mika Brzezinski have spent over a year turning their entire MSNBC program “Morning Joe” into an anti-Trump diatribe (after both hosts previously kissed the Donald’s ass) but appear to be on the verge what could be a massive climbdown.
In what would have been unthinkable even a few weeks ago, Scarborough hosted a frank discussion in which he bemoaned the “Balkanization” of the public that the Democrats have presided over since poor, poor pitiful Hillary’s defeat and warned that identity politics just may not be the way back into power.
This is BIG stuff coming from Morning Joe and the Dems should pay heed to his warning.

The midterms are still the Democrats’ to lose but the lack of a message other than HATE TRUMP, RUSSIA BAD, CONFISCATE GUNS has taken a toll and the promised “Blue Wave” is probably in jeopardy.
Party leaders have been quick to pounce on the horrific mass murder at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School but in exploiting the tragedy to push for strict gun laws is only risking poking the sleeping giant of conservative voters.
The Democrats still have the inside track for 2018 but would be destroyed in 2020 when the turnout is much higher and the coming nationally televised presidential debates turn into a fratricidal free-for-all between warring factions.
Gotta give credit to Scarborough here, he recognizes that it may be time for the rats to start eying the lifeboats.
