Morning Joke™ (The Hysteria Edition)

The last minute of Morning Joke™ on a lovely Monday morning:

Joe Scarborough: What did you learn today , Mika?

Mika Brzezinski: I think I learned we're all being really impatient, REALLY impatient with this economic crisis and we need to give it 6 to 9 months. I do. We're throwing around a lot of hysterical words here. So simmer down.

JS: Well, well so we give Washington 6 to 9 more months to spend a trillion dollars a day?...

MB: They've already spent it.

Mark Halperin: Throw away your stopwatch and get a calendar.

JS: ...The Chinese are going to be moving tanks into Times Square in a week...

Pat Buchanan: My portfolio won't take it.

JS: Can the Dow actually go down into negative territory, Mika, if we're gonna wait six more months?

Way to keep the hysteria down to a minimum, Joe.

That had to be one of the dumbest statements I had heard in a

This guy Scarborough is a freak. I can't watch him -- I don't have the stomach for it. I don't know how you can take it!

I play a little demented game where I see how long it takes for me to blurt out profanity and blow a gasket while watching Morning Joe. I've never gone past the one minute mark.
