Lean Forward! Needless to say there’s be a massive firestorm if someone at Fox may a snide gay reference about a Democrat. But hey, MSNBC is allowed to get away with this stuff since the target is a Republican.
Just after 6am, on “Morning Joe” this morning, Joe, Mika and guest John Heilemann were talking about yesterday’s New York Timesarticle about “the three amigos” Senators John McCain, Joe Lieberman and Lindsey Graham, who have bonded over the last decade through international travel putting themselves at the center of the foreign policy debate at home.
With Lieberman leaving the Senate, McCain and Graham have brought in another “amigo” Senator Kelly Ayotte. That prompted Heilemann to make a bad joke, at the expense of Graham:
Heilemann: They need a third amigo at all times. So now they have — now two of the three are women — now at least one of the three are women.
We’re sure they’d be restrained if someone made a snide gay joke about their hero Barack.
