On the September 12 edition of the CNBC show, “Hardball,” former Clinton advisor, Dick Morris, made an offensive comment about Christ that was immediately challenged by host Chris Matthews. In an aside, Morris remarked “that’s like the guy who gets himself crucified and starts his own religion.” Matthews didn’t find the humor in this and stopped the interview right then and there.

This isn’t the first time Morris has stepped in it, but at least this time he wasn’t given the chance to resign—he was fired, right off the show. Kudos to Chris.
