For The Daily Beast, this Easter Mike ponders why so many Republicans are hopping mad. "The fury of some like Ted Cruz is understandable. It’s fueled by his massive ego and outsized ambition along with his personal belief that he is so smart and the rest of us are so pedestrian that he can manipulate opinion to win the Republican nomination for president with the support of the mentally ill wing of his party."

Introduction

Mike Barnicle is an award-winning print and broadcast journalist, radio personality, and social and political commentator. A regular on MSNBC’s highly rated morning program Morning Joe, Barnicle is best known for his street-smart, straightforward commentary and writing style that gives voice to “every man.” With insight, perspective, and an incisive wit, Barnicle can be irascible and colorful, sarcastic and skeptical, but ultimately seeks to find the good in people.

The Massachusetts native has written more than 4,000 columns collectively for The Boston Globe, Boston Herald, and New York Daily News, where he rose to prominence with his hard-hitting and often heart-wrenching must-read columns that closely followed the triumphs, travails and ambitions of Boston’s working and middle classes. Barnicle’s articles and commentary have also been published in Time magazine, Newsweek/The Daily BeastThe Huffington Post, ESPN The Magazine, Grantland and Esquire, among others.

Barnicle previously hosted a popular morning drive-time talk radio program on WTKK-FM in Boston, where he was The Voice of New England. For many years he has also been a frequent guest on Imus in the Morning, where his “Barnicle’s View” was heard three days a week.

Barnicle lends his unique perspective and vivid presence to the screen, page and airwaves. His award-winning television documentaries include Armed and Dangerous, which examined the proliferation of guns in the U.S., and Justice on Trial, an exposé on the Massachusetts judicial system.

An avid Boston Red Sox fan, Barnicle often comments on the team and baseball in columns, radio shows, and on TV. He was an integral part of Ken Burns’ PBS documentary The Tenth Inning.
