Must-See TV

Things got a little saucy on MSNBC Friday when NYT‘s David Brooks appeared with CNBC’s John Harwood and MSNBC’s Norah O’Donnell in the New York Times hour. The segment ended with O’Donnell asking, “Did you have a couple of drinks at lunch, David?” Pretty good cable TV.

Brooks: You know, all three of us spend a lot of time covering politicians and I don’t know about you guys, but in my view, they’re all emotional freaks of one sort or another. They’re guaranteed to invade your personal space, touch you. I sat next to a Republican senator once at dinner and he had his hand on my inner thigh the whole time. I was like, ehh, get me out of here.

So induldge us, David, what Senator are you referring to?
