MSNBC's Joe Scarborough now has a blog on Politico .

Scarborough, a guest columist for the website and "Morning Joe" co-host, debuted the blog shortly after midnight on Monday. "Like Navin R. Johnson seeing his name in the phone book for the first time, I feel like this is the lucky break I've been waiting for all my life," he wrote. (Navin R. Johnson is Steve Martin's character in "The Jerk," by the way.)

He gave a glimpse of what readers can expect -- serious stuff with a helping of humor. He promised to write about "what's really happening behind the scenes in Congress, the White House and in the media world" in addition to "stories of European futbol matches that end in 0-0 ties, underground bands for whom neither you nor your friends have ever heard, and inspiring stories regaling the glories of my time in Congress 47 years ago."
