White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was a guest on MSNBC’s Morning Joe this morning. But before Joe and Mika got in their questions, Gibbs had a question for Joe:
Scarborough: Robert Gibbs. How you doing?
Brzezinski: It is great to see you.
Gibbs: Joe, can I ask a question first?
Brzezinski: Ah, sure.
Gibbs: Joe, is it really going to be Senator Scarborough?
Scarborough: I have to call my brother. Is he running? Yeah, right. Absolutely not.
Brzezinski: All these people are calling him, asking him to run for senate in Florida. The phone’s ringing off the hook.
Scarborough: Absolutely not.
Gibbs: Mika, all I’ve got to say is “Morning Mika” has a nice ring to it.
Scarborough: There you go. So anyway. Here’s my problem, Robert. I don’t really think it would be good to run in 2010 with a party that is actively associating itself with the Taliban.
