This is one of the more bizarre episodes ever seen on a network show.

Notice that the little girl, Krystal Ball’s daughter, initially talks about a husband and wife, and then again talks about being in love with “him” until pushed by her mother to talk about marrying a girl.

Regardless of your position on gay marriage, it’s very disturbing to see a child used this way on television — but then again, it’s Krystal Ball and MSNBC, so almost nothing is surprising.

From the archives, remember Krystal Ball was one of the people behind the push to get Rush Limbaugh kicked off radio, What did Krystal Ball know, and when did she know it?:

MSNBC commentator Krystal Ball was involved from the start in the StopRush movement, interacting with Angelo Carusone of Media Matters and a Twitter user going by the pseudonym “@Shoq” to form the working group to coordinate Twitter and online contacts with Limbaugh advertisers. I detailed all this in my post on March 21, 2012, Independent Rush boycott group coordinated with Media Matters.
