Joe Scarborough Gets a Politico Blog

Joe Scarborough can now yell and scream via a blog, thanks to Politico. Scarborough’s blog launched after midnight last night, and here is how Scarborough introduced himself:

Thanks so much for taking a look at my Politico blog. Like Navin R. Johnson seeing his name in the phone book for the first time, I feel like this is the lucky break I’ve been waiting for all my life.

Nicely done. Scarborough added that he’d be reporting on “what’s really happening behind the scenes in Congress, the White House and in the media world.” He ended his inaugural post with a list of things he cared about, which included an ashtray and a lamp.

Seems like he has got this blogging thing down already.
