Presidential biographer Edmund Morris didn’t think much of a question asked by Bob Schieffer of CBS News Sunday when the host of “Face the Nation” asked the often acerbic Morris, author of a new biography of Teddy Roosevelt, what he thought the former President wold think of today’s politics.
“You keep asking these presentist questions Bob,” Morris replied. “As the immortal Marisa Tomei said in My Cousin Vinny, ‘that’s a bullshit question!’ because you cannot pluck people out of the past and expect them to comment on what’s happening today.”
Schieffer took the question in stride and moved on although CBS sources tell Capitol Hill Blue that Morris has appeared on CBS for the last time.
