Skip to comments.Mika Brzezinski on Palin media buzz: So what? Makes her as significant as Paris Hilton
Posted on 06/30/2011 2:37:40 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
The cast of MSNBCs Morning Joe had quite a morning on Thursday. In an appearance to promote his new book, The Quotable Rogue: The Ideals of Sarah Palin in Her Own Words, The Daily Callers own Matt Lewis said that Palin was arguably the most significant woman of the 21st century.
That statement caught the attention of show co-host Willie Geist, who asked Lewis to elaborate. But after panelist Mark Halperin called President Barack Obama a dick, a remark which he later apologized for, co-host Mika Brzezinski determined she would level the playing field and liken former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palins fame to that of Hollywood socialite Paris Hilton, leading to a back-and-forth between Brzezinski and show host Joe Scarborough.
Transcript as follows:
GEIST: You said a minute ago, Matt, shes the most significant woman of the 21st century. I can just hear our viewers screaming at their TVs. What about Hillary Clinton? Do you really think shes the most significant, more so than Hillary Clinton?
BRZEZINSKI: I cant, I cant
LEWIS: I said arguably, and I think you could make a case for Nancy Pelosi, as well, by the way, and Hillary Clinton and Im sure some others. But I think you could make a good case for Palin because of the way look at the Tea Party movement, which she was sort of at the forefront of. I think you could make a good case that Sarah Palin was in fact the most significant woman in terms of driving the debate, and certainly in terms of media coverage Sarah Palin has dominated it.
BRZEZINSKI: Yeah, but so does Paris Hilton, but that doesnt mean theyre significant.
SCARBOROUGH: Hold on one second, dont let me stop right here. Dont compare her to Paris Hilton.
BRZEZINSKI: I didnt. Im just saying
SCARBOROUGH: You said so is Paris Hilton. You put her in the same category.
BRZEZINSKI: No. Im saying there are people who get media coverage that maybe shouldnt?
SCARBOROUGH: Shes one of two women hold on a second, Matt.
LEWIS: The death panel comment is
SCARBOROUGH: Hold on, hold on, hold on. Okay, lets put it in perspective. Im tired of her. People ask, Why do we bring her up. Theyll ask, Why are we talking about her here. You talk about Paris Hilton. I think that feeds into that narrative. Heres the bottom line: She is one of the two only women who have ever been nominated for vice president of the United States of America. That aint nothing. Its just like Dan Quayle for four years after he was vice president
BRZEZINSKI: Okay, youre going to have to let me respond.
SCARBOROUGH: garnered more attention than that. That is why she remains significant.
BRZEZINSKI: No. Im going to tell you there already was one and given the women that we have on the global landscape today, like Hillary Clinton, I mean, my lord. Im sorry.
SCARBOROUGH: Shes in the top 10. Im not saying shes the most significant. You compared her to Paris Hilton.
BRZEZINSKI: No. I compared his statement about media coverage to Paris Hilton, okay? So, you know, you can jump on that like some of the
The comments are not what you'd expect.
Both of whom are more significant than you, Mika. (One quite a bit more so than the other.)
What is Mika’s IQ?
It’s probably a negative number, whatever it is. She probably needs help changing the batteries in her “personal massager.”
Bet she likes Dick and simply doesn’t understand why everybody doesn’t.
She obviously has Breast Envy!
Pray for America
I believe I have the answer to the nonsense she spouts, as well as other TV libs.
She has a hollow skull and within it are two brain cells. The two brain cells race around the inside of her head in opposite directions like particles in the Large Hadron Collider. Occasionally the two cells crash into each other and for a picosecond, a coherent thought forms. But it’s a random coherent thought and not likely to make sense to the average listener. And much like the unstable particles created in the LHC, the thought, quickly dissipates.
The tremendous energies created by the impact of the two brain cells is released in a chaotic manner, shocking the liberal’s nervous system, thus accounting for the dazed, slack-jawed look they display, along with occasional drooling.
Mika IS MSNBC’s Paris Hilton!
Make it stick like glue. She has the same qualifications as Paris...a recognizable name. The woman has no other experience other than talking head also like Paris.
Mika Brzenzinski; It must be awful being the daughter of a demon.
That historical bio also may include a note that Palin's ideas more nearly resembled those of 1776 which culminated in the Constitution of the United States than of the 2011 mainstream media and politicians who presided over the potential demise of the Republic by coercively imposing their views derived from Mao, Marx, Lenin, and Keynes.
Two vapid dumb blonds whose every achievement in life is due to their famous father's last name.
All true. Whereas RINOboy and his cohort will go down, if at all, as a footnote somewhere, listed as talking heads on a poorly rated show on a biased cable channel.
I know which history I’d rather have written about me.
Stock up on Coke and Penicillin ;)
Ok, I am no expert, but will pontificate anyway. There is just something in the body language of Joe and Mika as well as their interaction that leads me to think there is some hanky panky going on betwixt them.
You mean they didn’t, and don’t, talk about Geraldine Ferraro like this?
These women on the left are SO pea-green jealous of Governor Palin. Boggles the mind how these avowed “feminists” have latched on to the coattails of politicians like leeches and still don’t get anywhere much. - Sarah did it herself, ALL of it. She’s got the whole enchilada, and they don’t like it ‘cause she’s a conservative. They’re just background noise, and now they’ve started on Michelle Bachmann, which proves they’ll attack by any means any conservative woman who succeeds without using their dubious methods to get ahead.
Mika IS MSNBCs Paris Hilton!
A much more legitimate comparison. If it wasn’t for “The big news” She’d be stuck as some ne’er do well talking face in Phenix City, Alabama.
They do that because they think it is cute & provacative......................I watched this morning & she just sat there like a lump of logs w/ this quizzical expression on her face............
Mika can relate to the Paris Hilton syndrome since she got where she is because of daddy. Oh, and she is also a dumbass bleach blonde.
Does anyone even watch these clowns?
I mean - really - who cares? She’s nearly a bimbo, and the rest are like useless sales guys who have never sold a new account - sitting around, drinking coffee, yapping it up.
They are worthless, and their opinions are worth-less.
Let's see if I have this. Sarah. Palin's VP nomination is unimportant because there already was one, whereas Hillay Clinton is a woman who is Secretary of State, the very third evah!
Yeah so what...
BTW Mika I bet you would be surprised to find out most Americans would vote for Paris before they would give Barry Hussein another term...
I know I would.
She couldn't be any worse!
Mika is a 3 dressed up as a 9 at best.
Joe Scarborough??? I am not sure if I have more respect for Obama than I do for Joe Scarborough. I have zero respect for Obama.
Morning Joe is an abomination
Hey that’s brilliant.
I can totally picture those two pico-particles scrambling around her head - probably anti-matter at that.
Problem with libs is that they don’t have to have any brains when you already think you are better than everyone else.
