MSNBC's Morning Joe is a font of conventional wisdom, so I don't feel bad restating this old maxim: Everyone on Morning Joe is a jerk. Here's the evidence, starting at 3:10 or so:
The ever-wise Joe says that Obama's "environmental base" is holding him back because the only type of energy environmentalists like is "getting granola and grinding it up and hoping sparks will come off of it." Oh, and wind and solar matter so little, we might as well just give up on them now. Apparently, according to ex-Newsweek editor Jon Meacham, enviros also think composting shredded tote bags is a way to get energy.
