Joe Scarborough sympathized with Glenn Beck‘s assertion that he would consider Ron Paul as a third party candidate on Tuesday’s Morning Joe, “I bash Glenn Beck when he says really inflammatory statements,” Scarborough said. “But Glenn Beck last week had Newt on. And he asked Newt the type of questions that conservatives need answers to. Then yesterday, Glenn Beck said something that I guarantee you a lot of small-government conservatives, like me, have thought. And that is, if I have to choose between Barack Obama and Newt Gingrich, a guy that George Will said would have been a “marvelous Marxist” and who is the opposite of being a small-government conservative, if Ron Paul’s running as a third-party candidate, I’m going to give him a long look. Because I can’t vote for the two guys who worship at the altar of big government in their own separate ways. And that’s the problem with a Newt Gingrich candidacy.”

Interesting stuff. Have a look for yourself:
