Oh, the things we hear when they forget to turn their mics down. Here we have Chuck Todd and Ed Henry yukking it up together over their imagined McCain palpitations over Petraeus' comments on air strikes in Iraq.
Before Obama entered the briefing room to make his statement on Iraq, Todd leaned over to Henry to ask him what McCain, who supports air strikes in Iraq, must think now that General David Petraeus has come out against further military action. In video captured by The Right Pundit, Todd asked if anyone had “checked on” McCain since Petraeus made his statements. “I’ve got to think McCain must have had heart palpitations,” Todd joked.
“What’s funny is that McCain was on our air an hour ago saying we should send Petraeus to Iraq,” Henry remarked, referring to an earlier appearance the senator did on Fox. But meanwhile, Petraeus gave a speech a day earlier saying the U.S. “can’t be the air force for Iraq.”
Something tells me Senator McGrumpy will not be amused.
It really does give a closer look at how these guys pal around with each other. Is it any wonder we get groupthink from the Village when they all stand around laughing at what they will soon be reporting on in Very Serious Voices?
