Clearly the time away from the spotlight has done nothing for Mr. Lawrence O’Donnell’s maturity level. He’s still got the manners and professionalism of a 3-year-old throwing a temper tantrum. Ed Morrissey takes note of his latest little meltdown on the “Morning Joe” show over on MS-NBC where it got so bad that Joe Scarborough had to call an end to the segment and say he’d continue the interview “by myself.”
O’Donnell is a misbehaving little brat, something he proved to us long ago when he was incapable of any level of civility during an appearance (on MS-NBC, again) opposite John O’Neill of the Swiftboat Veterans for Truth back in 2004. Unable to simply shout down the truth, he watched his favored candidate John Kerry lose the Presidential elections to George W. Bush by over 3 million votes. Again displaying the maturity usually seen on daycare playgrounds, he got on national television and suggested that Bush’s victory should cause serious consideration of secession by the blue states in that election.
So why does this guy warrant anyone’s consideration of being a person with a perspective on any matter of politics that’s worth adult time to air? The guy hasn’t gotten any more lucid or worthy of attention in the last 5 years since he was in the public eye, his appearance on Morning Joe makes that clear. Perhaps now we can simply let him fade into the obscurity he deserves and keep him off the broadcast media. O’Donnell’s a twit and he clearly always will be.
