Well, I might be one of the first people in the belly of the internet to blog about this, but as I was just getting ready to leave today, circa 8:13 am, Morning Joe of NBC was on at home. Joe Scarborough inadvertingly expressed an eloquent phrase when commenting about the new chief-of-staff. He didn't mean the phrase as a direct insult but rather as a general noun, hyphanated.
After the slip, an embarrassed Joe and an equally apologetic Mika started a commentary session about the profanity.
"My wife is going to kill me when I go home.
I'm going to go get some soap"
His wife proceeded to text to him:
It is now 8:20 and the post-commentary explaining the use of profanity on air is still going on. I am sure the episode will become a youtube sensation.
Frankly, I do not know how they can come up with occasional, cogent comments at 6:00 AM so, Joe, and others, take the advice of Mika and move on.
We'll see how much fun Keith and Rachel will have with this one this week.
