I think Savannah Guthrie is an excellent interviewer and is always poised and ready with direct and intelligent questions for her guests, so I have to figure the lead-in line to her interview this morning with NYC mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner on the Today show was an intentional comic jab.

If not, then as soon as she said the words, she must have silently muttered to herself, "D'OH!!

Weiner was, shall we say, kind of cranky, and didn't seem to notice what sounded like a stand-up comic's line.

Check out the interview at today.com and you'll see what I mean with her opening line.

Who said politics can't be fun? :-D
