Lanny Davis And Jane Hamsher Yell Over Each Other On The Ed Show (VIDEO)

Lanny Davis, former White House special counsel for the Clinton administration, and founder Jane Hamsher got into a shouting match over health care reform on Ed Schultz's The Ed Show Thursday evening.

Ed Schultz invited Davis onto his show to explain an article from The Hill in which Davis accused the Left of forming a "circular firing squad" around Democratic leaders and health care reform. He called out Hamsher by name, comparing her to Joe McCarthy.

When Schultz brought Hamsher into the conversation, she proceeded to accuse Davis of dishonesty and of working for pharmaceutical companies. The argument escalated, and Schultz finally stepped in when Davis insisted on talking about an old posting on FireDogLake that featured Joe Lieberman in black face, while Hamsher continued asking Davis, "Who is paying you to be here?"
