SAN DIEGO - Did any of you really think The Viva Chuck Todd staff could sit out the 2016 election season? If you're like us, you've spent the past months looking forward to Tuesday primary coverage on MSNBC like Game of Thrones season finales.
And now, Trump has his 1237 delegates, Sanders is still that old guy yelling at Hillary to get off his lawn and Chuck is where he rightfully belongs: lording over the MTP brand and swinging his command of politics like Thor's hammer. The temptation to pull off the tarp and fire up the political smartass engine was too much; So here we are - New site, new journalists and a new Chuck.
One of the things that made the original Viva Chuck Todd such an unmitigated blast was the feedback and contributions from our beloved readers. Social media is a far different animal than it was in 2008. That said, we look forward to even more interaction with fans of the best news network in making Viva Chuck Todd better than it ever was. Rest assured, it will still be just as ridiculous and spiral off in whacked and unforeseen directions. We'll have fun with the new faces and of course, spend a great deal of "ink" on Rachel Maddow, the Morning Joe crew, Jonathan Capehart and old friends in the ever-growing underrated MSNBC universe.
Nobody got sued last time, so let try this again.
