Colbert Report - Scarborough: We talk about Ayers 'because it's not relevant' (Video) link included
Edited on Fri Oct-10-08 01:07 AM by democracy1st
When MSNBC host and former Republican Congressman Joe Scarborough appeared on the Colbert Report on Wednesday, Stephen Colbert immediately got him off balance by noting, "The last time you were here, you admitted that you took money from Jack Abramoff."

"What's with that!" yelled Scarborough. "This is all you have for me?"

"That was just the preamble of the question," Colbert explained. "I just wanted to know if you wanted to reveal anything about your relationship with William Ayers while you were here."

After Scarborough had denied having ever been involved in bomb-making, Colbert asked, more seriously, "No, but are you covering this whole thing, that Obama's buddy-buddy with Ayers?"

"We talked about it," Scarborough acknowledged, adding, "It is not relevant to where the story is right now."

"But that's why you talk about it, right?" asked Colbert. "You've got to talk about it even if it's not relevant."

"I don't think you understand," explained Scarborough. "We talk about it because it's not relevant."

"I've heard you guys say, like, 'We shouldn't be talking about this -- this is the McCain campaign making us connect the dots," insisted Colbert.

"You get it backwards," replied Scarborough. "You see, what we do is we talk about it for a very long time, and then we reveal -- after the ratings come in and it helps us out -- that we shouldn't be talking about it."


Colbert then asked, "How does McCain win this one, Joe? How does McCain bring it out of the pooper?"

"It's too late," Scarborough replied, as the audience cheered. "When there was peace and propersity you could talk about certain issues, but you can't at this point -- you have to talk about the economy."


"Look how MSNBC has changed you!" marveled Colbert.

"I know," admitted Scarborough ruefully.
