Congressman Cooter: Mika Is The Daisy Duke Of Morning Television

Ben Jones, aka Congressman Cooter who once played Cooter Davenport on The Dukes of Hazzard, appeared on an extended version of Morning Joe today while MSNBC waited for Bill Clinton to start a speech at 11 am. Host Joe Scarborough tried to cut off Jones, a former Georgia congressman now campaigning for John Edwards, but Jones had none of it.

Watch Jones ramble from, "Are you still sitting there in that same diner?" (Morning Joe's schtick throughout the primaries) to talking about himself in the third person, "Cooter's about to get preempted by Slick Willie." But Cooter's greatest line was when he said of Joe's cohost Mika Brzezinski, "Mika is the Daisy Duke of morning television."
