During a Morning Joe appearance late last month, Chuck Todd, as we reported, described the congressional race on Staten Island as a "fight between mob families." Not a great idea for a guy who not long before saw his comment that Alison Lundergan Grimes had "disqualified herself" made into a Mitch McConnell ad.

Back on the show this morning, Todd offered an unqualified apology for his "mob families" hit, calling it "bad, wrong" and  a "cheap slur."  But that didn't stop Joe Scarborough from trying to turn it into a joke and make things about himself.
