MSNBC’s Ball: GOPers ‘Must Feel Like They Should Take a Vow of Silence’

‘That should do them some good in the elections’

MSNBC's Ball: GOPers 'Must Feel Like They Should Take a Vow of Silence' (NewsBusters)

Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell, MSNBC's Krystal Ball cracked that Republicans "must feel like they should just take a vow of silence" until the election as she alluded to New York Republican Rep. Michael Grimm's meltdown with a reporter and Mike Huckabee's recent comments about the so-called "war on women."

Referring to Washington Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers giving the Republican response to the State of the Union address, Ball observed:

She is a different face of the Republican Party, and everything she did was completely overshadowed. Now, we've got Michael Grimm, we had Mike Huckabee last week with his comments about libidos and uncle sugar, and the Republican Party must feel like they should just take a vow of silence between now and the election to do themselves some good.
