This is the way it’s done: Sam and Cokie were finally done after a very long, fatuous run.

WALSH (12/13/12): There’s no real mystery about why House Speaker John Boehner and his allies keep screaming about wanting spending cuts, but never propose any: The kinds of cuts they are known to want, like raising the eligibility age and/or means testing Social Security and Medicare, are wildly unpopular. So on Thursday Boehner held a ranting press conference where he railed about “spending” but didn’t propose one single cut.At least she didn’t refer to “the great Luke Russert.”
On MSNBC’s “Now With Alex” (guest-hosted by the great Joy-Ann Reid), congressional correspondent Luke Russert told the unvarnished truth about why the party that’s for cuts won’t lay any out...
If you possess an ounce of self-respect, you should be insulted by that highlighted chunk—and this isn't a criticism of Reid.
The children, including the older children, routinely refer to each other as “the great [name here].” It’s their way of saying they think that you are easily conned.
If they call each other “great,” you will swallow it whole. Your're so dumb you’ll believe it.
“Guest-hosted by the great Joy-Ann Reid?” Kiss kiss kiss kiss kiss kiss kiss! Joan Walsh has become truly sad.
