MSNBC's Alex Wagner Mutters 'Jesus' During Clip of Santorum Babbling Incoherently

By Robert Paul Reyes

"MSNBC`s Alex Wagner is caught muttering `Jesus` under her breath as a clip of Rick Santorum talking about classes in America plays.

`There`s a term I know that people use all the time called `middle class.` As if there are classes in America,` Santorum said."

I was watching "Now with Alex Wagner" on MSNBC when that segment aired, and I didn`t hear her mutter "Jesus" when Santorum was babbling incoherently abut there being no classes in America. Instead of uttering "Jesus" under her breath, Wagner should have loudly exclaimed "Jesus", that would have been a succinct, and concise commentary. Santorum`s patently absurd pronouncement didn`t deserve any in-depth analysis, a simple "Jesus" would have sufficed.

Wagner is an analyst and not a news anchor, but even if Diane Sawyer muttered "Jesus" under the same circumstances, most viewers would forgive her impromptu editorializing.

When I hear any of the GOP presidential hopefuls on TV speak on any subject, I often mumble expletives in disbelief at their contorted logic.

Alex Wagner is an insightful analyst, but she needs to cut loose. Girlfriend, don`t be afraid to shout out "Jesus" the next time Santorum, Gingrich, Perry or any of the other GOP clowns makes an outrageous statement.
