Why Morning Joe Quit His Day Job

Solidarity & Solidarność
This morning "Season of the Witch" Joe was ranting, deep into in his cultural guilt.

Speculation abounds about why he lost it.

Some say "it was about the victory of the St. Louis Rams over his homies the Oakland Raiders (52-0)," some say "his feelings were hurt because some in the GOP think he is a RINO," others say "it was Yardbirds stroking Joe Joe's Smokestack Lightening," while yet others say "it was simply the Java the Joe."

I implore him to follow Mika's suggestion and find another fantasy football team, or perhaps teach the current 1-11 Oakland team how to play football gooder (like you did goober when you were "little").

Or was his rant because those St. Louis Rams, in their own home town, held their hands up before the game and said "don't shoot" (without first asking St. Joe Joe for permission?).

Whatever the "reason," like most insecure wannabe "protectors and servers" in the mold of Darren Wilson, Joe Joe shot his wad.

Little wonder that long ago Morning Joe quit his day job of trying to be a lawyer.

I don't know if his Alma Mater (Red-Neck Law School) taught grand jury law or not, but if so that school either taught it wrong or Morning Joe cared little to nothing about learning grand jury law (UNITED STATES v. WILLIAMS).

Joe Joe evidently choose to attend make-up class instead.

Here is the straight scoop from a lawyer who was once a law student who did not miss grand jury class: The Ferguson Lie.

So, Morning Joe is still unable to tell the difference between a grand and a petite jury, so he does make-up work and calls it journalism or something like that (Why Trial By Jury?).

Yep, Joe Joe is behaving like a concert pianist who doesn't know the difference between a grand piano and a zydeco rubboard.

Doesn't he know that he can't make music-pabulum on his bread and circus show (to ease the worries of his fanatic red meat fans) if the truth gushes out of the caverns of his failed "logic" ... which he still calls points?

His score was the same as the Raiders. 

A grand jury is not a place to try the ultimate facts, that is the place of a petite jury:
It is the grand jury’s function not ‘to enquire … upon what foundation [the charge may be] denied,’ or otherwise to try the suspect’s defenses, but only to examine ‘upon what foundation [the charge] is made’ by the prosecutor. Respublica v. Shaffer, 1 Dall. 236 (O. T. Phila. 1788); see also F. Wharton, Criminal Pleading and Practice § 360, pp. 248-249 (8th ed. 1880). As a consequence, neither in this country nor in England has the suspect under investigation by the grand jury ever been thought to have a right to testify or to have exculpatory evidence presented.
(Justice Scalia Explains; cf. Experts Blast Ferguson Prosecutor). Now that Joe Joe has a new day job at McTell News, he seems to fit way right in.

Still, Morning Joe like his bubbas, suffers terribly from symbolic racism (Symbolic Racism: A Look At The Science - 3).


  1. The NBA does a slam dunk on the Joester: link

  2. I don't know the person that this article refers to. Was he some kind of Rush Limbaugh/Imus radio personality (I heard of those two)? There should be a re-trial of the Brown case. The prosecutor was helping the cop by misdirecting the "jury" I've read.


    1. "I don't know the person"

      Morning Joe is an MSNBC morning show, like "Today" that runs for 3 hours on weekday mornings (6-8 EST).

      Joe Scarborough, an ex lawyer, ex republican congressman, is the head honcho.

      He pimps the right wing agenda while pretending to be a "moderate."

      "There should be a re-trial of the Brown case."

      There was no trial.

      The point of the post is the misunderstanding of the purpose of a grand jury vs. a petite jury.
