Senator Heidi Heitkamp Cracks Testicle Joke On National Television


Senator Heidi Heitkamp was on CNBC’s Squawk Box this morning, and has her segment was closing out co-host Joe Kernen said he was going to Scotland to play golf. He mentions that he’ll wear a kilt.

“Watch when I mark my ball,” he says.

“Which one?” asks Heitkamp.

Which prompts this reaction from Kernen.



The folks at Newsbusters are outrageously outraged. “Will the media come out and condemn this offensive kind of language as they would if a Republican had made a crude joke about the female anatomy?” asks Jeff Meyer. “Will Kirsten Gillibrand tell her she was inappropriate? Only time will tell.”

To which I respond, c’mon Jeff. It was funny. Heitkamp may be a humorless liberal demagogue most of the time, but even she’s capable of a good oneliner now and then.
