  •  I didn't think he was rude (none)
    He and President Robinson agreed on a number of points and even high-fived at one point.  I thought he was a respectful as can be expected for a panel discussion of this type where the setup going in is supposed to be a free-for-all.  

    He even admitted that if the Plame leak concerned a bunch of Democrats, they'd all have been lynched by now.

    I'm no Scarborough apologist, but I've seen much ruder behavior on MTP.

    •  He was a bully (none)
      He at one point demanded she let him speak, then continued to interrupt her as she responded. She was very classy, but clearly way way smarter than Joe, and the bones she threw him were more of a snide comment on his comparative inadequacy than anything else.
    •  I must disagree, he was rude (none)
      He cut her off (Maher, too, but not as much), talked over her points, the classic DC bar loudmouth approach.  He gave no indication that he understood her position as former President of Ireland.  I was frankly shocked by his manner.

      Are we still routinely torturing helpless prisoners, and if so, does it feel right that we as American citizens are not outraged by the practice? -Al Gore
