Morning Joe And The Case Of The Missing Senator

Well, this was an odd thing to witness over our morning coffee (brewed by Starbucks, naturally). Morning Joe hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough were attempting to interview Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad (D-ND) about the fact that Democrats have gone one thousand days without presenting a budget.

But, alas, Senator Conrad was nowhere to be found!

He was not eating eggs and ham, he was not hiding in the can. He wasn’t somewhere in the Senate, he wasn’t wrapped up like a present. He wasn’t sneaking ’round the House, he wasn’t hiding with a mouse. They looked down here, they looked up there, but — try as they might — Joe and Mika could not find him anywhere.

Watch what happened, via MSNBC:
