The Deciders, Instincts Strong They Have

So that is the excuse they are floating today to justify not covering the Obama-Blagojevich connection.

SCARBOROUGH: I know, but why didn't somebody investigate this six months ago when Ryan Lizza wrote it?  It's pretty fascinating, because in 2008 we knew he was the most corrupt governor in America.

MIKE BARNICLE: Let me put my newspaper columnist/newspaper editor hat on for you to answer your question about Wasilla, Alaska as opposed to the Blagojevich administration.

SCARBOROUGH: Not Blagojevich--Barack Obama.

BARNICLE: Whatever.  She was the next, new face. No one had ever heard of her. So you're going to send as many people as you can afford up to Alaska to explain to the reading public who she is. You're sitting there, you know Obama, you know the governor of Illinois --

SCARBOROUGH: You don't know Obama.  You can't even tell me whether he ran the 2002 campaign of the most corrupt governor in America.

BARNICLE: I can tell you this much: he was a state senator then, and he ran that campaign about as much as I did.

SCARBOROUGH: Oh really?  How do you know that?

BARNICLE: Just instinct.

SCARBOROUGH: Instinct?

BARNICLE: Yeah.

SCARBOROUGH [at moment of screencap]: Newspaper editor: shouldn't we have facts instead of instinct? That's what everybody's working on: instinct! You know what? I like him! So I expect that he's a really good guy. I hope if I ever run for politics again, I am given this much benefit of the doubt.
