Zbig Tells the Truth About Scarborough

Writes Kalim Kassam:

Did you catch the great moment of awkward live family drama on Morning Joe? This is how the Huffington Post describes it:
Most Joe Scarborough attempts to ask for Brzezinski’s daughter Mika’s hand in marriage or something by insisting that “you cannot blame what’s going on in Israel on the Bush administration.” This prompted Zbig to reply, “You know, you have such a stunningly superficial knowledge of what went on that it’s almost embarrassing to listen to you.”

Burn! Anyway, things grew only more awkward from there, as Scarborough batted the insult hither and yon, while Mika rolled around in her chair, totally chagrined. The show finally, mercifully, cuts to commercial (over the strains of Stevie Wonder’s “Superstitious” — apparently the closest thing the producers had to “superficial’). At that point, Scarborough directed Mika to give her father six dollars to make the mean man go away.

UPDATE Thanks to Nick Badalamenti for the video of this great moment.
