Weak Joe Gets Boost from Starbucks

"Morning Joe," the MSNBC daily yakfest co-anchored by Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, has a new official sponsor--Starbucks coffee. The program's logo will now include a Starbucks coffee cup. No word on whether Starbucks will further capitalize on its link to Scarborough, a 46-year-old former GOP Congressman from Florida, by creating a beverage that is white and bitter.
Meanwhile, The Huffington Post today offers a glimpse into a Q/A with Scarborough by Deborah Solomon that is slated to appear in the newly reduced New York Times Magazine. In the interview, Scarborough blames President George W. Bush for squandering the GOP majority and blasts the Party of Lincoln, suggesting the GOP "needs to reform or die." Sounds as if Scarborough consumed a few cups of high-test caffeinated Starbucks coffee pre-interview, which prompted him to "vente" against the party that backed his election in 1995.

  1. "White and bitter!" That makes me pale and happy. As for Scarborough, he's been "squandering" his Matthew Perry looks for years. Think of all the "friends" he'd have, otherwise.
