What's really impressive is that Scarborough doesn't get why he's being taken to task. He keeps saying that he reads the newspapers and Foreign Affairs, so obviously he knows what's going on.
It brings to mind a snippet of dialogue from the wonderful movie "A Fish Called Wanda":
- Wanda: But you think you're an intellectual, don't you, ape?
- Otto: Apes don't read philosophy.
- Wanda: Yes they do, Otto, they just don't understand it! Let me correct you on a few things; Aristotle was not Belgian! The central message of Buddhism is not "Every man for himself!" And the London Underground is not a political movement! Those are all mistakes. I looked them up.
Update: Purely coincidental, but TBogg used that same exchange as the title of a post on a completely unrelated incident.
