NewsBusters: Sly Scarborough Shot At Olbermann Over Sarah?

NewsBuster Mark Finkelstein catches MSDNC 'Morning Joe' co-host Joe Scarborough taking a thinly-veiled shot at Bathtub Boy:
Gee, I wonder which "cable news show" Joe had in mind...

In a seeming shot at Keith Olbermann, Joe Scarborough has predicted that "certain cable news shows" will stir up a "fake controversy" tonight over whether Sarah Palin was booed on Dancing With The Stars [she wasn't].

Here's the background: Bristol Palin performed on DWTS last night, and Sarah was there in the front row to support her. Jennifer Grey [of Dirty Dancing fame] also competed last night. Her backers in the audience began to boo when her scores, which they judged to be too low, were announced. That happened just before the show cut to an interview with Sarah Palin. Some have tried to suggest that the audience was booing Palin. But the crowd in fact cheered when Sarah appeared, and as Willie Geist said "my staff and I have studied the tape. They were not booing [Palin]."

That served as preamble to Joe's prediction...

There's no love lost between Vichy Republican Scarborough and Manic Democrat Olbermann. It must make for the occasional awkward encounter in the halls at DNC Headquarters NBC.
