12. I haven't been watching MSNBC for a few years


because I cut the cord and don't have cable at all now.

So the only recent thing I saw from Hardball was the video of him signing off. Others here said he looked angry but I thought he looked like he was choking up - my gut feeling just from watching his face was that he was dealing with criticism, yes, but even more he had come face to face in some way with senility, with coming to terms with no longer being competent to do the job. And then when I saw the cut to the producer looking caught off guard, I was more convinced it wasn't a forced-into-retirement situation because of the inappropriate comments.

I hadn't seen this clip either - and maybe it's confirmation bias. But it does make me feel even more sure that he's in the early stages of cognitive decline - and aware of it.
