Say what you will about MSNBC morning host Joe Scarborough; he doesn’t suffer from a deflated sense of self.

This is very important for my Republican brethren You don’t have to listen to me. God knows you haven’t — and you’ve lost election after election after election. You want to keep losing, you go ahead and do that if you’re comfortable with it. Apparently you are.
