CNN has suspended veteran political pundit Robert Novak after he dropped the S-bomb and stormed off the set Thursday during a live taping of Inside Politics. Novak's meltdown occurred in the midst of a heated exchange with fellow analyst James Carville about the Senate candidacy of former Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris. A CNN rep called Novak's behavior "inexcusable and unacceptable," adding, "We've asked Mr. Novak to take some time off." The moral of the story, kids? Curse on live TV and you get a vacation!
