- Morning Dope
I know you've never seen MSNBC's 'Morning Joe'. Almost no one has. It features rino ex Florida congressman Joe Scarborogh talking about how brilliant and insightful he is, and his empty headed blonde sidekick Mika Brzezinski acting as his liberal foil. Mika is arguably the dumbest woman on television, but it's not really her fault. None of her ideas are her own, so it probably isn't fair to blame her for them.
She may be a very nice person... it's tough to tell. She's certainly not a brilliant one. The general principle of the show (I think) is that squishy lefty Joe repeats some middle of the road Republican boilerplate and Mika challenges it from the position of the far left without bruising Joe's bloated ego. This is the kind of thing that passes for insightful dialog in the circles where Rachel Maddow is considered a deep thinker, and Ed Schultz is depicted as an philosopher statesman.
Mika's wooden expressions and comical repetition of what the New York Times editorial pages told her to think that day are fun to watch for about 8 seconds - long enough to hear Chris Christy nicely explain to her what an dope she is. But the one thought that jumps off the screen at you while watching this car wreck is that it's astounding how low the media will set the bar if your chatter is 'the right' chatter and you have a father who's well connected.
If there ever comes a day where liberal self congratulation gets the public ridicule it deserves, Mika will have no choice but to become a hermit - or at the very least, take a vow of silence. Until then though, if you want a textbook example of why nothing liberals ever try seems to work out the way they intend, take a look at Mika. No one that stupid would ever be able to do anything for a living but talk. And in Mika's case, she barely manages to do that right.
