Republican Joe Scarborough is quickly turning Morning Joe into Fox & Friends Lite, (minus Mika, of course) but his interview with former White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card this morning was worth a look and will be sure to raise a few eyebrows.

Joe asks Card about Karl Rove's ridiculous claim that the Democrats pushed the White House into voting on the resolution to use force in Iraq during a recent interview with Charlie Rose, and his answer took everyone by surprise, bringing big laughs from the MJ crew...and me. Even Card couldn't keep a straight face.

Scarborough: "We have to start with something that we all were talking about a couple days ago where Karl Rove went on Charlie Rose and he blamed the Democrats for pushing him and the president into war. Is that how it worked?"

Card: " [laughter] that is not the way it worked. [snip]

"Karl is very smart, sometimes his brain gets ahead of his mouth - and sometimes his mouth gets ahead of his brain."
