There's probably a reason MSNBC canned him.

I used to like watching Keith towards the end of the Bush administration. To my view he was making some very valid points that were easy to make against the Bush admin, the unjustified war and related lies plus things like the Patriot Act.

But, as the Bush admin wound down and Obama took over, it seemed Keith ran out of legitimate things to rage about. Same goes for some of the other MSNBC hosts. They started to make some reaches to keep the fervent pitch going to keep viewers' attention. That's when I started to better pick up on identifying biases in the media.

Fox News was easy to identify the bias, but it took some time for me to also identify when my slightly left leaning biases were being pandered to and things being blown out of proportion with cable news.

Keith has become irrelevant. He's just as bad as the Fox News editorializing shows that like to play up the fear of the other. Turn them all off. They're all trash and only furthering the divide in this country and the inability to even rationally discuss politics without it becoming a total shouting match.

Jack: Deja vu? Perhaps reminiscent of the dynamic approaching the big day in 2016-maybe? But (and notwithstanding my status as a foreigner) the world, and more importantly the political climate up there seems to be very different this time around. Trump no longer portrays himself as the new-comer maverick, guns blazing as he rides into the sunset (in true Hollywood style) as the agent of change!! This time around, he has history; an actual record of performance to justify.

And Clinton's polling record in 2016 (whilst regular) doesn't seem to have been as consistent as Biden's (has Biden ever lagged in a poll since receiving the Democratic nomination?)

But the real question in my mind is; will the Republican party, or his supporters back Trump's refusal to leave the Office if (when?) he blames postal-vote fraud, or some other form of constitutional malfeasance for the election result? Trump ain't got a good record of accepting loss and I suspect that his ego doesn't have the term "defeat" in its vocabulary!!
