Honesty with the Morning Joe

During a roundtable on MSNBC Morning Joe program, Lawrence O’Donnell boldly proclaimed that he was a socialist while advancing a point of view that Blue Dogs were a vital part of the coalition that kept House Democrats in power.  O’Donnell started out under the tutalege of former Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-NY), so his Democrat leanings were never in doubt,  but when O'Donnell says: “I am a socialist. I live to the extreme left, the extreme left of you mere liberals," that really is The Last Word (sic).

While it is refreshing to have a political pundit to be forthright about his radical beliefs, it is kind of shocking that America has entered an age where a Lamestream Media member can boldly proclaim oneself socialist.

Considering MSNBC’s Lean Forward campaign, O’Donnell should fit in just fine, as long as he does not violate the Peacock Network’s corporate policy about political contributions without prior disclosure.
