After the wall-to-wall coverage of the Donald Trump/Carrie Prejean news conference, MSNBC’s dayside anchor team of Contessa Brewer, Tamron Hall and David Shuster had a, let’s call it, lively discussion about what had just occurred. After Shuster called Prejean “clearly not very smart,” Brewer said, “I think this is a great jumping off point for a conversation about same sex marriage.”
“No it’s not, no it’s not,” added Hall. Later, Shuster said it in a different way: “The only jumping off point is jumping off a cliff if we really believe that people at these pageants have anything worthwhile to say to the rest of us.”
