I always get him mixed up with the other dude in glasses at MSNBC.
Absolutely! I find him so attractive. For two years I kept looking on the internet to determine if he is gay or not and finally he came out a couple months ago. He currently is single. I wish we would see more of him on TV.
Had no idea he had come out -- good for him!
a genuine sexpot in my book. Men in glasses always have tight asses.
Wow, that coming out story is incredibly sad. It actually made me sick to read about his needless suffering. Oy.
His coming out story should be required reading in every school, especially every Catholic school. Been there, done that. I also know there is a lot of futures turmoils for those who don't come out until their 30's. Almost all aspects of growing up emotionally have been delayed.
When he was on Rachel Maddow last night, I said out loud "Smart is sexy and he is turning me on."
He's only 32? Damn, some of these people must have known exactly what they wanted to do in life at an early age. I certainly didn't.
Kornacki is often a panel guest on Alex Wagner's show "Now" on MSNBC. And Alex is only 30 years old!
He didn't seem to like Rachel's trans/top hat joke on the show last night. I like him, but he doesn't seem to have a sense of humor.
I noticed that too R17, I thought Rachel's comment was amusing but Kornacki seemed uncomfortable.
This is the second time I've seen him as a pundit during the weekend.
Steve, go out, have a good time, and get LAID!
In r11's picture he looks like a lesbian. You'd have a hard time picking him out of Ellen DeGeneres' audience.
He is now on "Hardball" quite often. I have always found him very verbal/smart and very cute - a few weeks ago I did a search on him, trying to determine if, indeed, he is gay - and what popped up but his comingout story. Would absolutely love to lick his entire body.(Noted a flaw this evening - his left profile is NOT his best - so, simply give me total frontal.)
I find him very attractive - it's the gaunt nerd vibe that he gives off. He seems so earnest, which makes me think that he could make an excellent boyfriend.
Was watching The Cycle on MSNBC and noticed him. Didn't know anything about him but thought he was attractive and had a sexy face. Then learned he was out. Wow! Great surprise because I didn't know he was gay. He is very smart and a big sports guy. However, his pictures over the years look very different from the way he looks now. I hope he hasn't had "work" done. Anyway, anyone know any more about him? Where does he live? Boyfriend? etc.
He is single and lives in NYC. The best husband material that ever materialized. However ... as someone said, having come out in his 30s, he's got to have more issues than the New Republic archives. Is anyone who does that dateable?
[quote]He seems so earnest, which makes me think that he could make an excellent boyfriend.
Bet he's a freak in bed.
Still too much self-loathing for my taste.
Sure he's cute, but he sounds two hairs away from being just another closet Republican douchebag.
What's wrong with coming out in your 30s?? I know men who have come out in their 50s or 60s, and they are fine! At least you've come out! Are we really going to condemn people who didn't come out in their teens or twenties? Really?? Really?? This guy looks great and he's intelligent--a very rare combination.
A ht and smart man! He needs a boyfriend! I volunteer.
Not seeing any self loath. He is sexy and seems to be very smart when he opens his mouth. Now get him a good show.
Steve and Krystal are the ONLY good things about "The Cycle".
Get those two another show, and fire S.E. and the beyond horrible Toure!
I do not like his midwestern accent. The other night he was yammering on and on and Krystal could not get in a word edgewise. Seems a little naive/idealistic and I fancy savvier types, so I guess I am the only one who is not smitten.
I wonder what his ass smells like after he goes hiking.
Im sure he'll have a lot to say about tonight!
I don't think he wipes very well...
He's only 32? He looks so so much older. Yuck.
I think this thread has the same troll on it now that the David Muir thread does. The troll hates both of them (and is probably a Republican!)and lets it be known in very disgusting ways. However, Steve is a hot guy and smart too. Love his intensity!
Wish his show were on at a different time....It's in the middle of the day, which is why folks haven't been on this thread--they haven't seen him. But, trust me, he's cute and very smart. Got a terrific memory--everyone on that show yields to him when it comes to political history. Hope he has a good off-camera life.
Who hates him, R40? He's smart and sweet - I bet he also has a nice foreskin.
Do you think he was in attendance at Thomas Roberts' wedding this evening? I'd like to see who he brought as a date.
I think he's hot and would do him in a second. Also Ari Melber -- hot hot hot.
Y'all better BACK OFF my man. I have had a crush on him since he was a semi regular on the other cable shows.
Then I found out he was gay, and that means he and I are now in a commited relationship based on real love. Not crazy, unrealistic love like when I thought he was straight.
Ari Melber is very sexy
He does not ping in the least.
Agree about Ari Melber. What a sexy guy!
He looks like a bloated lesbian.
ahhhhhhh, Ari. short, dark, hairy and sexy beyond words. also very smart. love when he shows up on a primetime show (like Last Word) and his 5 o'clock shadow is nice and strong.
Ohhhhhh....so he's one of those gay guys who's proud of how "not gay" he is. Got it.
Is this the guy I saw on the tv at my gym debating the ridiculous S. E. Cupps on some political talk show? There was no sound or even subtitles, but none was necessary; his takedown of her showed on her incredulous, Matalinesque visage. Then there was some kind of resolution and they both seemed to be pretending to yuk it up like old pals.

If we're talking about writers for The Nation, can we talk about Jeremy Scahill? I find his twitchy nihilism refreshing and sexy.
Jeremy Scahill is so, so sexy; however, he's fucking nuts. I mean, he did a great public service by exposing the crimes of Blackwater, but he's fucking nuts.
What ethnicity is Ari?
time for a big hairy bump here!
Oh, please, R61. Ari is Jewish, duh.
Jeremy Scahill has a warm, moist inviting anus
You wish, R64.
Enough about dull Ari Melba Toast.
Ari Melba Moore!
nothing bland about Ari. hot, hairy, and smart. what else do you need to make a man sexy as hell?
Steve is the only person that I can take seriously on this Cycle show.
Sometimes he seems a little over anxious when he's making his point, but he never sounds dumb or uninformed.
And even when disagreeing, he has a way of not making the others on the panel seem stupid either - which must be tough with Toure sitting across from him.
Toure is Terrifying and looks like he wipes back to front
Yes, Steve is great! A bit intense, but that's ok.
If he needs a bf, I volunteer!
[quote]What ethnicity is Ari?
He's Irish, Rose.
While I couldn't wait to come out at 17, I'm glad I read Steve's story. It reminded me that, while it's never too late to make the changes you need in your life, sooner is better than later. I need to apply that to my own life.
And Ari? Well, I ended up here from a google search on "Ari Melber is hot"
Steve needs to dress better, with the camera angle, they always show his shoes, which are always clunky and dirty looking.
He needs to find a network that doesn't have some hot Israeli preen like Ari Melber if he wants to get noticed.
Ari isn't aging well, Steve will age well.
He's adorable, but a blind person cuts that hair.
Some people don't seem to understand the difference between ethnicity, nationality, and religion. Yeesh.
When Steve takes over for Chris Hayes on the weekend show, will he be giving up his seat next to the lovely and talented Krystal Ball?
He looks like a lesbian. The sweaters don't help.
I have the biggest crush on Steve... I want him to talk about politics while I do him ;-)
R27, there's nothing 'wrong' with anyone coming out in their 30s or 40s or whatever, later in life.
But as someone who dated a few guys like that, there are challenges.
Mainly that those guys have to process through a lot of the same kinds of identity questions and issues that many of us did in our teens or twenties.
Not just "am I gay" (which clearly took them longer to publicly acknowledge) but where do I fit in this community, etc. They have to jump into the dating scene for the first time. And so forth.
It's as if you're dating an 18 year old, in many ways.
Kornacki is undeniably smart and cute. But I was so sad after reading his coming out story. This is a person who's lived in a lot of denial and didn't seem to love himself very much.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
