Washington Independent:

Much remains unclear about the substance of the “significant actions” that CIA Director Leon Panetta conceded that the agency didn’t sufficiently brief to Congress. What’s absolutely crystal clear is that for days on end, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough popped off at the mouth about how the CIA would never ever never mislead Congress and how House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) “needs to shut up” instead of saying otherwise.

What? Expecting Joe Scarborough to be intellectually honest and acknowledge his role in the smearing of a Democratic politician? *Snort* Like that will ever happen.
