[See NewsBusters for more.] After the House voted to censure and kick Rep. Paul Gosar off his committees, MTP Daily host Chuck Todd on Thursday tried to paint Gosar as representative of the Republican Party as a whole by comparing Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to segregationist George Wallace as he tries to become Speaker.

Former John Boehner and Paul Ryan adviser Michael Steel had just hypothesized that if Republicans do well in next year's midterms, it might make it easier for them to marginalize their more fringe members when Todd claimed "that is extraordinarily optimistic."
