Wonder if he’ll be reinstated a la Olberman.

Scarborough’s suspension, during which he will not be paid, will end Wednesday,

Meh...he’s probably scheduled the day before Tanksgiving as vacation.

It’s the same tactic the Democrats’ own atheist/communist ACLU uses. Every decade or so they defend the Illinois Nazis to “prove” they are “unbiased”.

Do some homework. Romney is the ultimate pandering weakling scumbag. Clear enough?

That’s why the Olbermann firing because of donation could never stick - everyone would have been wiped off the network....

If Romney is the cream of the crop for the Republican party, then I’m no longer a Republican.

No one said he was the 'cream of the crop' and there are plenty of RINOs to choose to slur and slander.

I was just wondering why Romney was the "pick of the litter' to slur and slander.

I'm just thinking he must be 'really' special be at the 'top of the heap'.

The blurb just made me think of how Charles Johnson went completely bonkers about Bush and Republicans.

Just expressing my thoughts and concerns about FR and the usual 'give and take'. No give and take about Romney for sure. Jeez!

Absolutely none! Rudy, Romney, et al, can go straight to hell as far as I’m concerned. Those who don’t like it are free to take a hike. FR is a pro-life, pro-family, constitutional conservative activist site and will remain such. Abortionist/statist, homosexual agenda pushing RINOs can KMA!!

Are we now obligated to follow the moonbat lead and go all apeshitty with media conspiracies about the destruction of the truth and the unfairness of it all?

Nah. Who cares if Scarborough gets suspended or canned?

He can spoon with Olbermann this weekend and share television war stories.

“I apologize to MSNBC and to anyone who has been negatively affected by my actions,” said, adding that after he was made aware of some of the contributions, he called MSNBC president Phil Griffin “and agreed with Phil’s immediate demand of a two-day suspension without pay.”

So whats he doing,,,trying to claim he was unaware that he made the contributions?

maybe they discovered a way to get ratings

Good point. I know I'd be more inclined to watch MsNBC if all they showed was an empty chair for an hour. I mean, I couldn't learn any less.

Smite? Nah! There’s not THAT many dollar-a-day FReepers.

If there were we would not be doing these continuous money-thons.

LOL

Every unpaid suspension helps the bottom line for MSM’s.

Hey, maybe this is going to be the new media Chic, suspended for donating money to left wing political figures.
