If you missed Scott Pelley’s interview with Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on CBS’s 60 Mintues yesterday, you missed one of the funniest things I’ve seen on TV in eons. 

When Pelley asked Ahmadinejad what he thought of Bush, Ahmadinejad ran circles around the question. Pelley tried to entice him by saying the following:

“I asked President Bush what he would say to you if he were sitting in this chair. And he told me-quote-speaking to you, that you’ve made terrible choices for your people. You’ve isolated your nation, you’ve taken a nation of proud and honorable people and made your country the pariah of the world. These are President Bush’s words to you,” Pelley said. “What’s your reply?”

Wow, talk about leaving a door wide open.
