Weigel, O’Donnell Talk Tea…Literally

Last night, when Slate‘s Dave Weigel tweeted that he’d be on MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell Show “talking Tea,” we naturally assumed he’d be talking about the Tea Party – a group that he covers extensively. But how wrong we were.

The discussion started with a conversation about budget negotiations, as expected. But then O’Donnell unexpectedly veered off track.

O’Donnell: Let’s talk Tea now.

Weigel: Yes.

O’Donnell: I’m a big fan of Earl Grey. I was just drinking some Earl Grey before the show started.

Weigel: Uhhh…

O’Donnell: I mean, I do like other kinds of tea as well: green tea, iced tea, sweet tea…

Weigel seemed reluctant to jump in to that discussion. He is after all on the record as being a big fan primarily of juice boxes. He begged O’Donnell to go back to discussing politics before he finally relented: “Okay, okay…I’m a fan of Hi-C myself.”

More analysis after the jump…

Sadly, that conversation never happened.
