RE Greenwald v. O'Donnell on Morning Joe

[Welcome, Glenn Greenwald readers! Please read the comments ... --lambert]
It was a major bummer for me to see Glenn Greenwald get schooled by Lawrence O'Donnell in front of the Morning Joe hacks:
Usually GG makes mince meat of his opponents, but O'Donnell had clearly come prepared, and had definitely found a logic problem with one of GG's recent arguments.
I also spotted the logic error when I first read GG's post. It was difficult to then see O'Donnell rip it apart on air. GG was definitely disoriented, as he's not used to being in the position of being wrong, and he became a bit incoherent and even physically uncomfortable.
Ugly. Just ugly.
