Thursday on Hardball, Chris Matthews talked with MSNBC's Chuck Todd and The Scar in front of a live audience in Florida. Scar was explaining how the base of the Republican Party hates John McCain because he's bucked the White House on key issues, including waterboarding. He then makes reference to Republican pollster and occasional FOXNews flunkie, Frank Luntz, and it all goes a little off course from there:

Matthews:"Maybe we should put together Luntz and waterboarding and see if we get to the truth.

Scar:"You mean waterboard Luntz?"

Matthews: "No, well - HA!"

Todd:"I'm not going there." [crowd cheers loudly - snip]

Todd:"Frank needs to dial test these guys. Sorry, Frank!"
