Skip to comments.'What Makes People Think Having Someone Like Their Neighbor in the White House a Good Thing?'

Sarah Palin is sending the MSM around the bend. On MSNBC this afternoon, Andrea Mitchell provided perhaps the most blatant example yet of an MSMer openly admitting she doesn't want Palin as VP. Mitchell, clearly frustrated by Palin's every-woman-appeal, complained: "Is that what we really want in our leaders? Do we want someone 'just like me?' I mean, I don't want someone like me because I know I'm not because I know I'm not prepared to be vice-president or president. What makes people think that having someone like their neigbhor be in the White House is a good thing?"
Mitchell's guest was Lisa Murkowski, Republican senator from Alaska. Mitchell began by trying to lure Murkowski into taking a swing at Palin for her comments about taking on the "good old boys." Palin defeated Murkowski's father Frank, then the sitting governor of Alaska, in the 2006 GOP gubernatorial primary.
MITCHELL: One of those good old boys was your father, Frank Murkowski. How does that make you feel?
Murkowski wouldn't bite, speaking graciously of a generational change in a young state. Mitchell tried again to use a daughter's loyalty to provoke Murkowski into taking a shot at Palin.

Angry, elitist Andrea ping to Today show list.
I first met Andrea Mitchell in the White House Briefing Room years ago.
I am very relieved to know that my first impression of her was correct. She is a snob, and has an unreasonably high opinion of herself.
Since we are all citizens, we are all suppose to be the same in the eyes of government and one in a while, we ask one of our fellow citizens to lead in different offices.
Andrea is having a meltdown.
I agree with Mitchell... I don’t want someone like her or her lefty neighbors in power either. Ha!
No, Andrea thinks we need elists who are more god-like and can cure disease, calm the seas, and walk through walls. Regular normal human beings are so frail.
Maybe it has something to do with the “out of touch” crap that the MSM likes to spew, Andrea. Sound familiar? Like something you or Matt Lauer or Missy Matthews may have pounded on for the last few years.
Well, perhaps some of us are tired of the old, ineffective de facto aristocracy that the Dem party tries to foist on us every election.
And notice the contrast between the confident, respectful, classy Republican Senator and the imploding liberal.
Andrea Mitchell I agree with you. You aren't qualified for anything...but you haven't let that stop you so far.
Easy. Getting a good look at how the MSM's favored elite run the country.
To borrow a line, I'd rather be governed by the first 100 names in the phone book than by the faculty of Harvard.
As I recall, Andrea Mitchell once said something like, "What people like about Bill Clinton is that 'He's just like us'".
If I've got to choose between two neighbors like Bill Clinton and Sarah Palin, I'm pretty sure who's coming over for barbecue.
Andrea Mitchell(I think of something that rhymes with Mitch)is as bad as the worse the MSM has to offer. Such a snide old wrinkly white hag is she.
Answering the headline: it’s taken me nearly 40 years to understand that most people in powerful positions got there through intelligence and hard work. But fundamentally they are my neighbor not because they put their pants on one at a time like me - but because in the end they can prove their humanity and frailty just as easily as I can and often do.
I don’t want someone just like Andrea Bitchell in the White House either. I’m glad Bitchell agrees.
Andrea looks like Jimmy Durante with a bad wig.
Perfect photo! LMAO!
