Bob Schieffer vs. David Gregory: It Is ON


Is it just us, or was Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer’s reaction to David Gregory’s taking over Meet the Press this coming weekend kind of … weird and graphic? “It’s going to be tough competition,” he told the Times. “I wish David the best — and I’m going to try to beat his brains out.” Oh! Er. At least he didn’t say what he was really thinking, which was, “I’m going to pour acid on him and gouge out his eyes.” [NYT]
