King lost in the Bushes (video)

"During the election campaign, Larry King interviewed President and Laura Bush. Just before the interview started, Larry (1) patted himself on the back for his fine interviewing style and, (2) put in a plug for himself as a panelist on one of the then-upcoming debates," writes Harry Shearer. "In passing, he ignored the fascinating hint dropped by G.W. and Laura of the 'drinking debate.' That's called a nose for news." (Huffington Post via Hullabaloo)
