Did Morning Joe Bore Michael Steele To Sleep?

Morning Joe likes to think of itself as the most scintillating three hours on morning TV.  But did the show have a soporific effect on Michael Steele? When the camera cut to him today at 7:50 ET today, Steele appeared to be, well, I believe the polite term is "resting his eyes." Hat tip NB reader Susan J, who points out Steele is due considerable slack since he was up late doing primary coverage for MSNBC.

Steele rebounded quickly and was able to laugh off the moment.  View video after the jump.

Have a look at the funny moment.
