Clips from Friday: Rob Thomas on the GOP; Pawn Stars show their most surprising items

On Friday, Piers Morgan welcomed musician Rob Thomas to the program. Joining the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host for a face to face sit down interview, the "Matchbox Twenty" front man talked politics and the upcoming election, taking note of the message disparity among factions within the GOP:

"What the GOP party really stands for, what the Tea Partiers are standing for, I've never seen them kind of disjointed in this way," he said.

Thomas also added that aside from the Republican party's lack of "a clear directive," they are hardly lacking in vicious rhetoric, which, in Thomas' opinion, is not representative of the general GOP constituents:

"I have many friends that are conservative Republicans. They don't speak like that. They don't have that kind of vitriol that just comes spewing out of their mouth when they do."

Also on Friday, Rick Harrison and Corey Harrison took some time away from their "Pawn Stars" shop counter to sit down with Morgan and share some of their most surprising items, including a WWII battle plan for Iwo Jima, and Olympic bronze medals from the Atlanta and Barcelona games.

Long jumper Joe Greene won the bronze medals before he was injured in 2000. "The way I look at it is, thank God he had these to get him by the hard times," said Rick, referring to Greene and others who have pawned their treasured possessions to the Harrisons when they are down on their luck.

"A lot of people don't have things to get them by the hard times and in the end, I look at it, it's still just stuff."

Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as the Harrisons talk about items that they would never buy, and Thomas further shares his perspective on politics.
