WATCH: Jon Stewart Mocks Joe Scarborough's Hypocritical Fury at Hillary Clinton's Gamesmanship

Jon Stewart covered the earth-shattering news that Hillary Clinton attended Senator Tom Harkin's Annual Steak Fry in Iowa last week, her first visit to the state that pretty much screwed her in the 2008 presidential elections (she came in third after Edwards.) Edwards!


She did not announce that she is running, however. She did admit that she was consdering it.

Boy, did that piss off the punditocracy! Especially the right-wing punditocracy.

No one was more annoyed than Morning Joe Scarborough, who wagged his finger and said, "You go aound on glorified book tour just so people will ask you if you're running. Do it or don't do it."

Funny, he seems to forget his own "glorified book tour" of his brilliant tome, "The Right Path." When asked if he was considering running, he replied, "I haven't ruled it out."

Gotcha, Morning Joe. Have a little hypocrisy with your coffee?
