On Morning Joe, documentary film-maker Ken Burns draws parallels between Prohibition, the topic of his new documentary, and themes in current conservative politics.  He ignores the fact that Mika Brzezinski, sitting on the set and interviewing him, is a modern-day prohibitionist, who would ban cigarettes, soft drinks, transfats, fast food, ec.  Burns also claims to be "non-political."
