Olbermann to Scarborough on MSNBC: "Get a Shovel!"

I don't have a video of this yet, but, trust me, you'll see it soon on YouTube -

Live covering the Democratic Convention on MSNBC, Joe Scarborough was explaining that the McCain campaign is feeling much better than they were two weeks ago, now thinking they have a real chance to win, as McCain has pulled even with Obama in the polls-

And, in the background, off camera, you can hear Keith Olbermann say, "Jesus, Joe, get a shovel!"

Scarborough also hears it, is none to happy, and asks Olbermann what he meant. Olbermann responds with a poll that shows Obama's lead growing among likely voters.

The two anchors go back and forth. Scarborough keeps muttering about shovels, and I would say he was livid.

I was on Scarborough Country a few times, and found him genial, if not on the good side (i.e., my progressive views) on most issues. My guess is both he and Olbermann were right tonight.

But - whew - you just can't beat live TV!

And I'll be back with more on the Democratic Convention as it proceeds tonight...
