Hot sparks flew on the set of MSNBC's Morning Joe today igniting a brief but entertaining firestorm. The cause? Joan Walsh somehow being unable to name any leftwing extremists. This set off an angry reaction from co-host Mika Brzezinski which included a funny impersonation of a conveniently clueless Walsh. It was one of those moments that needs to be viewed in order to be fully appreciated but here is a transcript of the heated exchange:
JOE SCARBOROUGH: ...I think it helps us all to say there are extreme voices on the left, there are extreme voices on the right, and it's our responsibility to call out people, I believe, on our side.
JOAN WALSH: Who would you have me call out? I mean who would you say on the left is comparable to Rush and...
SCARBOROUGH: Don't do it.
MIKA BREZEZINSKI: Mmm-mmm! No thanks, Joan. We're good. We're good.

MIKA: I think it's all very obvious.

What do they keep her in a box and pull her out for idiot interviews?
Olberman is an embarrassing flatulent noise. Rush is a treasure.
That lefty woman was completely clueless! Most lib commentators go on and on and on, talking over the others to hide the fact that they have nothing to say and don’t have a real answer to the question posed.
There is no limit to the stupidity and mental illness of the Left.
It was beyond obvious that Mika was about to start kicking people under the table (again) so prevent anybody from more or less simply reading the MSNBC masthead, even as she mocked Joan for not seeing them as the blindingly obvious answer.
...and then there is Rachel Madcow, ooops, I meant Maddow.
