Terry Holt seemed to be rather upset with the whole "idiot" thing. True, Scarborough is a political reporter and that would make him the "scum of the earth" according to Terry. What is really interesting though is how defensive Holt gets over people questioning the mental capacity of Bush and denounces it by saying America doesn't want to hear arguments asking if the President is an idiot or not. I wonder if he gave the same criticism when right wing pundits called our former President a rapist?

UPDATE: Scarborough gives Republicans a suggestion on his MSNBC blog to prevent further speculation on Bush: KEEP BUSH AWAY FROM THE PRESS.
