From an interview to air tomorrow this morning with Matt Lauer on NBC's Today Show.

"I was down there a month ago, before most of these talkin' heads were even paying attention to the gulf. A month ago...I was meeting with fishermen down there, standin' in the rain talking about what a potential crisis this could be. And I don't sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar, we talk to these folks because they potentially...have the best answers, so I know whose ass to kick".

And here is the complete video, up now at the MSNBC site. This part, with Lauer's lead in, begins at about the 4:30 mark.
