Some might call it an anchor desk, but I would not debase the word “anchor” by putting it in front of a desk that includes folks offering this kind of analysis. The team includes: Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, Lawrence O’Donnell and Eugene Robinson.

This is their reaction Tuesday night to the victory speech of Rand Paul, the new U.S. senator from Kentucky. Check out O’Donnell’s words, in particular, against MSNBC’s claim that Fox News, not MSNBC, is the cable channel trafficking in fear. O’Donnell says Rand is now “empowered” to “creat a worldwide despression.”
