Chickenhawk Joe "Dead Intern" Scarborough calls Jesse Ventura "dumb". . .

Chickenhawk Joe "Dead Intern" Scarborough decided to engage Jesse "The Body" Ventura on the torture debate.

From the Chicago Tribune's blog The Swamp:

"Joe Scarborough, the former Republican congressman from Florida who hosts hours of political talk on MSNBC each morning, says the former independent governor of Minnesota and big-time wrestler is fighting out of his weight class in the torture debate.

Ventura 'should stop smoking whatever he's been smoking,' Scarborough said at the anchor's desk of his Morning Joe show. 'It seriously should be a crime, to be that dumb on TV.'

It was people involved in the planning of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks against the United States who suffered the first round of waterboarding in CIA interrogations, Scarborough said -- not Muslims randomly taken from mosques. "I respect people who say it is immoral,'' Scarborough said of the interrogations. 'We can have that debate.'"
