Joe Scarborough’s Imus Moment

Today’s foot-in-mouth award goes to MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough.

On the June 1st episode of his Morning Joe telecast, Scarborough implied that Fred Thompson‘s wife is a stripper. While speaking with Congressional Quarterly‘s Craig Crawford about the Law & Order star-turned-politician, the two had the following exchange:

Scarborough: Have you seen Fred Thompson’s wife?

Crawford: Oh, yeah.

Scarborough: You think she thinks she works the pole?

CBS is referring to the incident as the talk show host’s “Imus moment.” However, 2007 being 2007, Imus moments easily make it onto YouTube.
