MSNBC Laughs that Lindsey Graham is a Woman, Joke Edited Out of Segment Re-Air
Hat tip: MediaBistro
John Heilemann: "They need a third amigo at all times. So now they have -- now two of the three are women -- now at least one of the three are women."
John McCain, Joe Lieberman and Lindsey Graham have been called the "three amigos" because of their close relationship on foreign policy issues. With Lieberman leaving the Senate, McCain and Graham seem to have embraced a new third ally in Senator Kelly Ayotte, which John Heilemann used to make a crack on names and gender of the group. MSNBC decided to edit out the joke and laughter when re-airing the segment later in the morning.
