Don't make out-going Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell angry. You wouldn't like him when he's angry. Apparently…
A CBS promotional video clip shows an angry Gov. Rendell saying "you're simpletons, you're idiots" during a 60 Minutes interview. The segment is to air Sunday evening as part of an examination of the proliferation of casino gambling across the country…
Rendell reportedly was explaining that gambling addicts already had opportunities elsewhere, when his temper flared. By allowing casinos in Pennsylvania, tax revenue and jobs would stay in the state instead of going to neighboring New Jersey, he explained.
He then picked up the CBS news camera and threw it across the room and out the window before slow-motion breaking through a wall and loping through downtown Harrisburg. Or I assume. The clip only lasts a short moment, but that seems to be the way things are going. Something like that happened, at any rate.
The full interview and carnage runs on Sunday.
(Thanks to my friend Upma, for the heads up.)
