Via Matt Yglesias, MSNBC pundits this morning discussed potential running mates for John Mccain and whether there is a “glass ceiling” for unmarried individuals in politics. After Andrea Mitchell floated Gov. Charlie Crist (R-FL) as an example, Joe Scarborough noted that Crist is engaged. Chuck Todd suggested the engagement may be staged so Crist can be Vice President:
SCARBOROUGH: Did he get married? I thought he was engaged. Is he engaged or did he get married?
TODD: After Friday the engagement might be off if he’s not the running mate., right? … I don’t know!
As the group laughed, Andrea Mitchell remarked, “That is so mean.” “Wow,” said Scarborough.
