Mika On The Brink Of A Domino's Breakdown
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 03/14/2011 6:09:19 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

Is a pizza about to push Mika Brzezinski over the edge?

Seriously. Her frantic reaction to finding her daughter and friends sharing a Domino's has me worried about Mika's state of mind.

Regular Morning Joe viewers know that Mika's dream job would be as Kommissar of the Food Police. Her concern about obesity, particularly of the childhood variety, is commendable. But her solutions--heavy-handed government intervention of the sort Mayor Bloomberg has made infamous--would flout individual liberties.

Things came to a deep-fried denouement this morning, as a quasi-hysterical Brzezinski described her horror at discovering girls . . . eating pizza.

She was horrified that her daughter had ordered a bunch of crap from Dominos to which I say who’s running the show at Mika’s house? are the inmates running the prison? Mika?

I’m less worried about the way people eat, than about how they think.

Kinda OT but has anyone else noticed that snack foods don't taste as salty anymore, or that portion sizes at most chain restaurants have been getting smaller?

I wonder if these companies are using this regime's current push against obesity as an excuse to keep prices high and reduce product size.

Let her go over the edge... and take everyone at MSLSD with her. A long hospital stay will do America just fine!

If you have teens, at some point you have to start letting them make decisions for themselves. They still need a parent watching over them but it is natural and necessary that they start making their own day to day decisions.

A daughter deciding to eat pizza with their friends instead of sprouts and bead curd is natural and shouldn’t cause an emotional breakdown. With teens, you need to choose your battles.

Unfortunately from her perspective, eating the pizza is probably worse than catching the group naked with sex toys.

Mika’s obsession with obesity will likely drive her kids to either pig out in life or be anorexic.

Hey Mika, a better way is to teach your kids to like exercise & activity. Hiking, biking, fishing, camping, etc. are far more interesting to kids than tofu & rice cakes. I realize your hair & makeup are gonna take a hit, but hey, it's for the kids. Spend a week with Sarah Palin working the fishnets, & leave the tofu back in NYC.

I am horrified to learn that Mika has procreated. The US gene puddle has definitely taken an unrecoverable hit.

Wonder if Mika B is suffering from Bulimia so seeing her daughter have a pizza to her mind is like doing Heroin?

I found it funny that all the men she was talking to were saying things like “Can we place an order?” and identifying by name the items she was describing.

Hey Mika! You’re the one who isn’t normal!

Maybe she be arrested for Reckless Child Endangerment and then DSS should take her children into protective custody.

How would she feel if a teacher took her daughter to a Pizza Clinic without Mika’s knowledge or permission.

What happened to her daughter’s “Right to Choose”?

Mika ought to take a look at what happened to Cher and Sonny’s daughter. She became a he and is about 100 lbs. overweight.

Perhaps Mika was concerned about the unauthorized use of her credit card?

No. You can blame Bernanke, Obama and their printing press.

These companies are getting seriously squeezed by inflation and the transportation costs of getting their food.

Mika is an annoyingly strong blend of self-righteousness, arrogance, and stupidity.

I’d wish for her to go away, but the next lib to take her seat would likely be just as bad, if not worse.

Mika, who no doubt only got her high pay/little work gig due to her famous father, should learn to control what her own kids eat rather than want the govt to do it.

Dumb Mika acts like she caught her daughter and friends smoking crack cocaine or crystal meth after seeing them eating Dominos pizza. Is your daughter fat Mika?

I think that Mika's having some supply issues. Ordinarily she just sits there drooling and every once in a while she'll say something (sometimes it even sound like she's talking about the same subject that the others are involved with). I was surprised that Mika said that she was up and about this weekend. She even "entered a room". Must of been out all weekend looking for a new supplier

Bet her kid was surprised moving around.

Did you notice her final words, “I was horrified that this is how people eat!”

Yep, Mika, this is how people eat, if it is available, if they can afford it and if sanctimonious do-gooders do not use the power of the government (fines, incarceration, GUNS!!!) to prevent them for doing so.

PEOPLE, Mika! People eat all sorts of things that are sure to offend some other person (like me or you).

People eat Grits (me).

People eat escargot, caviar and arugula (you?)

People eat seal blubber (yuk!)

People eat cow blood mixed with milk & a bit of cow urine (numerous pastoral tribes in East Africa) (double yuk!)

People eat termites, both roasted and live on the hoof (Same folks. Roasted ain’t too bad)

People eat beef liver & rutabagas (Yuk! My dearly departed Mom forced these on me)

You are your child’s Mom and should have a say in what she eats. But you need to be careful about wne & where you discuss your family’s eating standards. Someone overhearing you might take to you for a RAVING LUNATIC and GASTRONOMIC TYRANT!

I used to love tuna fish in a can and now I can’t stand it, it has no salt and who knows what else. In January I had some home canned tuna and it tasted just like I remembered, the woman had put a little salt and a very small piece of the belly fat.

You know, I’m with you. Eat what you want, but have some logical thinking at least.

I had a discussion with a (very) liberal person I know. We were discussing the Texas budget ‘crisis’, and the fact that the education budget is going to be cut, as is all the other budgets. She went on to describe that teachers are going to get fired, etc, but the Texas constitution requires ‘adequate funding for education’. I felt that over 40% of the budget going to education was adequate, if it was spent correctly. She then asked if we cut 20% from the education budget, where did I propose we spend that 20%. Seriously. My response was “We don’t. If the ‘pie’ is reduced 30% overall, you cut each section a little. You don’t cut from one section and give it to another, that’s just more deficient spending.” She didn’t seem to understand - you cannot spend more than you have. It’s not responsible, and it’s not right. She really thought I was advocating cutting education and spending that money somewhere else in the budget.

Simply amazing. I’m not even college educated, and she is, but this was a stark reminder (for me) of the liberal mentality.

So if I spend 20% less on restaurants, and take that money and spend it on booze, I can save money!

Is it any surprise people go bankrupt?

Just another example of some retarded, hysterical Libidiot.

Give her a position of power or authority, and she’d be ordering SWAT teams to follow pizza delivery boys around to kick in doors and stomp pizza-eaters’ goldfish to death...

These people are truly demented. Can’t say it enough.

Yeah, pizza is such a horrible, dangerous food, even in moderation.

I mean, they could just have a cheese and tomato sandwich, maybe with a few little bits of meat and/or vegetables added to it for extra flavor instead.

That’d be NOTHING at all like a pizza. No siree.
