Lean Low

On MSNBC, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski just finished talking with Bill Clinton at his annual Clinton Global Initiative conference. As they went to a commercial break, Mika turned to Joe and asked about the former president, "Has he always been a low talker?" Having apparently never seen a certain episode of "Seinfeld," Clinton injected, "A low talker? What's that?" Mika replied, "It's a person who...well...we have to lean in to hear what you're saying." I guess she forgot her own network's promotional slogan: Lean Forward.

It could have been worse. Scarborough could have been wearing a puffy shirt.
