On “Morning Joe” Monday, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough called Fox News chairman Roger Ailes “the most powerful voice in the Republican Party,” and the channel itself “the only organizing institution for the GOP.”

Scarborough said this at the tail end of a discussion of former GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee. Guest Mark Halperin noted that Huckabee’s Fox News show has won him many new converts who might be inclined to support him in a potential 2012 run.

Scarborough called Fox News “the wild card” for Huckabee:

“That is the wild card. If you’d wanna win, seriously, Roger Ailes, everybody goes who runs the Republican–Roger Ailes is the most powerful voice in the Republican Party. He has set up something that — it is the only organizing institution for the GOP because everybody’s let Republicans down in Washington DC. It’s Roger.”

My posting has fallen off for a couple of days..

…because my laptop’s power cord has gone bad. Although I borrow my wife’s to charge up, my battery must be at the end of its charging cycles because it is only holding a charge for about an hour.

I ordered a new power cord on Friday and it will hopefully be here soon. I guess a new battery is next.
