After it was pointed out that MSNBC host Keith Olbermann was not the only one of the network’s pundits to make rule-defying campaign contributions, Joe Scarborough has also been suspended, with the Morning Joe co-host and namesake issuing a statement saying that he will be off the air for two whole days without pay next week. “I recognize that I have a responsibility to honor the guidelines and conditions of my employment, and I regret that I failed to do so in this matter,” Scarborough said. “I apologize to MSNBC and to anyone who has been negatively affected by my actions.” That’s right, Scarborough: For the sin of having personal politics, you too will suffer the torment of… The Long Weekend!
