Read this: Mark Halperin, Stephen Colbert

A special TV Personalities Acting Out edition of “Read This.”

Mark Halperin called President Obama a bad name on MSNBC today — a name so bad that, as Erik Wemple notes, journalists are struggling with how to convey it to you, but we’ll let you watch it if you heed the “adult language” warnings. The political analyst has been indefinitely suspended, which one of our bloggers thinks is too much.

And in some kind of ironic performance art, Stephen Colbert convinced the FEC to let him form a super PAC — complex stuff that Dan Eggen does a good job of explaining. Or you can watch video of Colbert’s post-hearing news conference. Another one of our bloggers thinks it’s all kind of lame.
