2:02 pm
to the american people. right? why now? why in this manner? i would like to learn more about her instead of dealing with this problem. we're learning that she is actually a registered democrat. we're learning interesting things about her. look at the cloud hanging over it. it making me wonder why they waited. i think the american people love to see the candidates tose wives. they're such a plus, especially someone like her. >> dana: i thought she was dignified and gracious and steady. appealing. >> brian: very appealing, sincere and she has a relationship out there with her family. i don't know who the women were talking about but it can't be my husband. just for the record, happy birthday, bob. >> bob: thank you. >> brian: when you walk out on a set -- i'm just citizenning here. it's a thrill to be here. andrea looks at you and says, "oh, i forgot it's you." instead of greg gutfeld. >> bob: don't feel bad. >> andrea: i say it to bob every day. i gave you -- >> brian: i'm much more
2:03 pm

2:04 pm
bunny one. gloria allred. but said it was no big deal. she was released. but that is not what he said in the press conference. he said something different to his wife than the press conference. >> brian: stop watching television. >> dana: i'm going to getter rick's thoughts on this? >> eric: she did a fantastic job. she could have come out early but i'm not sure when. early they pointed finger at perry and then at whomever. the democratic party. they were doing damage control. frankly, they weren't doing it well. >> bob: they were pointing fingers? >> dana: move on to another interview on a really happy note. one where if you needed to be reminded interviews can happen. interview last night, gabrielle giffords, congresswoman who was shot last year she gave to diane sawyer. take a listen to this. >> i will return. >> you can't say "i will return" without going.

2:06 pm
progress. she is doing well. she seems to understand everything that is asked of her but has a hard time vocalizing because of the portion of her brain that the bullet passed through. at the risk of sounding callous, these are tough times. the economy is on its ear. we really need all hands on deck. for me, it seems like forget next year. maybe even now say hey, look, maybe they should hold a special election right away to see if he we can get someone capable and able to make the right decisions. >> dana: is that how the rules go? >> andrea: no, they don't. do you want to take this birthday, boy? >> bob: you have to have a special election. it's not appointed position. if you ask eric something he and i were discussing before the show started because it's better that i say it than he say it. if you look at it, it's remarkable. it makes me well up just thinking about it. that district is a very tough district for democrats. it was one of those districts that will be hard to hold on
2:07 pm
to. she has to ask herself and her constituents have to ask themselveses is this a possibility? can she really hold on to this seat? that condition? it will be a rough battle. republicans have to be careful how they take her on but they will take her on. a number of them are lined up to do it. i wonder for her own sake, few her future, they want to have a kid. i wonder going through a grueling campaign is just not too much for her. >> brian: the way i feel about it, play a man down in the house. anything to make her progress better, get chief of staff that people trust. introduce him, you know the staffers -- you know staffers do a lot of work anyway. if this is something she wants to do. the country has to support her. >> eric: let her staffer vote for her, though? >> brian: what i'm trying to say is if she formed a staff in her likeness, people who believe what is she believes, if they can do a lot of the work for her while she rehabs, if that is something she wants -- she took a bullet to the head for the country.
2:08 pm
at least she can finish her job if she chooses. >> andrea: anyone who worked for a member of congress knows exactly how the member will vote. the staffers know her very well. my boss could have left and i'd know which way they will come down on the issues. i will say this. it is her decision. you asked before does she have to step down? no, she doesn't. but out of the members of congress this is a woman with her head on her shoulders. she seems like she is not going to do it out of power lust and personal gain and only if she can. >> dana: she is so loved by her husband. >> andrea: she will make the right decision. >> dana: the other thing on the opposite end of the spectrum, jerry sandusky, the person accused of child molestation at penn. they gave an interview last night to bob costas over the phone. which is probably good because costas might have strangleed him. listen to that. >> what did happen in the shower the night that mike mcqueary happened upon you and the young boy? >> we were showering.
2:09 pm
and horsing around. he actually turned all the showers on. and was actually sliding across the floor. we were, as i recall possibly, snapping a towel, horseplay. >> are you sexually attracted to young boys, underage boys? >> am i sexually attracted to underage boys? sexually attracted, no. i enjoy young people. i love to be around them. but no, i'm not sexually attracted to young boys. >> dana: those are questions that bob costas never thought he'd ask in his journalist career. what lawyer in his right mind allows his client to go on and do an interview like that? >> brian: i thought about that. so many times the coaches are great speakers, and you listen
2:10 pm
to them and go wow! no wonder the teams are so good. i think he thought he is innocent and wants to convince everyone he didn't do anything. you heard him, sleepy performance, unfocused and had a problem explaining how innocent he was. i don't buy a sentence of it. i'm stunned a lawyer recommended it. unless it's beginning of offensive, offensive of seven more kids come forward and he says he never touched them. my adoptive kid and he has been a great dad and then the wife. this could be the beginning of a strategy. >> eric: we need to point out there were eyewitnesses. a coach saw it going on, who said look, i saw it. i didn't stop it then but i stopped it later. there is no offensive. he is dead in the water. >> dana: one thing i was thinking about today from p.r. perspective, in a court of public opinion he is guilty. but if you look at somebody like the casey anthony or a michael jackson years ago and o.j. simpson, people that were tried in the court of public opinion considered guilty actually ended up being let go
2:11 pm
or not charged at the end. >> andrea: right. all they have to do is convince them that there is doubt. there is some doubt in the jurors' minds. to your point, brian. that is what they're doing. going on the offensive now. bring out -- >> eric: there were eyewitnesses. >> andrea: i agree. this shows -- >> eric: no eyewitnesses to the o.j. simpson killing. >> andrea: how sadistic of this man to do this. he knows what he did. he knows he hurt the little boys yet he will fight it. >> dana: no campaign they could mount to turn this around. >> bob: you're right. this he is a motivational speaker i'm surprised penn state had a defensive team at all number one. number two, i thought they were going to put on insanity defense by putting him on the air. eric said, the court of public opinion, that is over. it's done with. why come out and fight it in the court of public opinion when you can't win? >> eric: one more thing, brian, at one point he was going to be the replacement for joe paterno in 1998.
2:12 pm
13 years ago he was one of the top-rated coaches in the country. >> bob: after people knew about it. >> eric: he hasn't worked since and there is a reason. >> brian: the thing that struck me is he said joe paterno never spoke to him about his behavior. >> bob: i find that hard to believe. >> dana: all right. great discussion. here is a question: why is washington forcing taxpayers like you to subsidize multimillionaires like scottie pippen, ted turner, jon bon jovi, and bruce springsteen? we have details on this. e-mail us at malia. bob would love your birthday wishes. ♪ ♪
