Rise of the Cheetos Eaters Ed Morrissey on Morning Joe

Because of my road trip I didn’t have time to watch much TV but on Fri­day Morn­ing I sat at the Lonely Conservative’s Kitchen table watch­ing Morn­ing Joe while I planned a day that would take me to the Ann Marie Buerkle HQ, The Clay Town Hall Event, The Shrine of Saint Kateri Tekak­witha in Fonda and to Chris Gibson’s cam­paign office in Kingston, with a Saratoga stop in NY-​21 can­celled 30 min­utes away from the spot.

In between Phone calls and watch­ing tweets Karen steeped out the door to take her son when to my shock and delight my friend Ed Mor­ris­sey came on the screen to talk about his piece on Elec­tion 2012.

As you can see I was a tad excited.

When Karen walked back in I called to her excit­edly to see.

There is a lot to say about the appear­ance, that it drove Mika a tad nuts to the point of fil­li­buster was fun, that it actu­ally pro­moted at least once Sock Pup­pet on Twit­ter to attack him was amus­ing but what really got me laugh­ing the more I thought about it was what it represents.

There is no ques­tion Ed Mor­ris­sey deserves the atten­tion, he is a great writer, his wife is a national trea­sure, and on a per­sonal level as a guy who went from a call cen­ter to writ­ing, report­ing and pun­ditry Ed’s path is the path I hope to complete.

But in the end North­ern Alliance Radio not with­stand­ing, Ed Mor­ris­sey is a blog­ger, he cut his teeth at the Cap­tain Quar­ters where I started read­ing him and has con­tin­ues as a blog­ger for Hotair​.com.

Hot air is a blog, it has always been a blog, even though it is now part of Town Hall it remains a blog.

Yet over and over on Morn­ing Joe we have heard peo­ple from Mike Bar­ni­cle to Joe Scar­bor­ough go after “Chee­toes Eat­ing Blog­gers” as peo­ple to be scorned, ignored and berated.

I hope and trust Ed will be back on the show, if so per­haps it sug­gest they have turned a cor­ner on the new media. And maybe Mika will be able to bring her­self to ask a question.

But more impor­tantly this will be the moment when the Morn­ing Joe team acknowl­edges that the peo­ple of the blo­gos­phere who work very hard for very lit­tle reward and have does the job that many in the media have not deigned wor­thy to cover

There is no question Ed Morrissey deserves the attention, he is a great writer, his wife is a national treasure, and on a personal level as a guy who went from a call center to writing, reporting and punditry Ed’s path is the path I hope to complete.

Hot air is a blog, it has always been a blog, even though it is now part of Town Hall it remains a blog.

Yet over and over on Morning Joe we have heard people from Mike Barnicle to Joe Scarborough go after “Cheetoes Eating Bloggers” as people to be scorned, ignored and berated.

I hope and trust Ed will be back on the show, if so perhaps it suggest they have turned a corner on the new media. And maybe Mika will be able to bring herself to ask a question.

But more importantly this will be the moment when the Morning Joe team acknowledges that the people of the blogosphere who work very hard for very little reward and have does the job that many in the media have not deigned worthy to cover
