Poll-Panicky Mika Fights With Producer To Lead With 'Binder-Gate'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 10/18/2012 9:35:18 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

Has the latest Gallup poll, showing Mitt Romney with a six-point national lead, panicked the Obama campaign and its MSM cohorts like Mika Brzezinski? Morning Joe's producer apparently wanted to lead today's show with a discussion of the latest bummer-for-Obama polls. But Brzezinski admitted to "fighting" with her producer, insisting instead on opening with a discussion of the "binder-gate" issue that President Obama was pushing out on the campaign trail yesterday.

Joe Scarborough laughed off Mika's binder obsession as "ridiculous," saying continued Dem focus on it would lead to a Romney landslide. Even Mark Halperin, whom no one would accuse of being in the Romney reservoir, dismissed the matter as trivial compared to the real issues in this campaign of the economy and jobs.

More proof, as if any were needed, that you don’t have to be a genius to work at MSNBC.

And that MSNBC is DNC Central.

Mika is living proof that all left wing talking heads have to attend some hidden “Smug School.” I think is is SSS College. Snarky, snide and smug.

Intelligent people see that the MSM is beating-a-dead-horse on this non-issue.

Binder-Gate....what a joke.

More and more people will quit watching these departments of the DNC.
The MSM no longer pretend that they're not campaigning for Obama and other Democrats.

BTW, Joe Scarborough is still a low-life POS!

Unless this is all coordinated to tie into whatever Gloria Allred is about to drop. Then Mika will look like a frikkin genius.

Islamists are saying “We are all Osama Bin Laden” and belligerently attacking the US while the Middle East is aflame with the Islamist takeovers..... and the media wants to focus on their own sexualization of Romney’s use of the word “binder”?

If it wasn’t such a dangerous situation, this would be laughable. When are the people in positions of power ever going to get real about actually protecting this country?

Maybe I’m just stupid but I still don’t understand what was wrong, funny or controversial in what he said. Is it because he said “women” instead of “women’s bios” or “women’s names”? Is there something funny about the word “binder?” Is it because someone used a binder instead of a computer file?

I love how she deliberately mis-interprets Romney’s statement and doggedly (how appropriate!) insists upon flogging that mule even against the surprising advice against it by her cohorts.

You go girl!

IMHO, it is because sexualization is the lowest "common" denominator that their constituents are capable of understanding. To heck with foreign affairs or the safety of this Country; what about sexual affairs and free vibrators on the streets of NYC?

If it wasn’t such a dangerous situation, this would be laughable. When are the people in positions of power ever going to get real about actually protecting this country?

Never considering those currently in power. We the People must do the Constitutionaly righetous thing and rid ourselves of these traitors. Take from that statement what you will.

If I recall correctly the Romney Administration in Massachusetts did hire quite a few accomplished women out of those binders.

This is liable to blow-up in their faces if they push it.

MA has some local words ~ apparently their Democrat dominated state government has been calling "resumes", "portfolios', "applications' ~ etc. BINDERS for decades.

They're probably wondering what's with this Mika person ~ some kinda' foreigner or something eh!

This is melt-down mode. This must mean the internals are tracking with Gallup. If Zero’s internals were still good, they wouldn’t be panicked like this.

AKA a girdle. Romney hates girdles.

Romney LOVES girdles...

"Binders" is slang for bras and/or girdles.
Bras are supposed to burned, not worn.
Girdles are the offspring of corsets, a torture device women were forced to wear so men would look at them favorably, and marry them, and make them their exclusive personal property.
Thus "binders full of women" is Conservative male code for re-enslaving women: putting women back into bras, girdles, and chaining them to kitchens, as the exclusive property of a man!

(Please imagine all-caps here; I have neither the heart nor stomach to actually do it. Also, by now, spittle should be running down the speaker's chin.)

Anybody with even an introductory course in Womyn's Studies or Radical Feminism would KNOW this instinctively!!!!! Conservatives are uneducated, sexist, warring-on-womyn FOOLS!!!!!!!!!!!!! /fake outraged Lib-Fem speak

Joe and Mika were on the Today Show where she didn't come up for air trying to explain the binder program. She said its the norm for a new Governor to be given a binder full of female names so it was nothing he sought, as he claimed. RINO Joe just sat there silently grinning as is his tendency. I've since learned MSNBC does not pay their employees equally, and the Womens organization who started the binder program commended Gov. Romney for his active participation surpassing their expectations.

Any clue how we go about contacting Morning Joe?

Bibder gate is absolutely stupid on so many levels but, what about the pay women and men make in the work place? The elephant in the room is that we all get paid based on the choices we make in life. I’ve seen plenty of data that show men and women with the same background and education get paid about the same. Are there some dscrepencies.....perhaps..to be fair. But, the bigger issue is that wome make different choices then man make. There isn’t some huge ‘conspiracy’ going on against ‘working females’ as is always implied by the left. The data simply indicates the choices people are making.

With all of that said, I’d be very interested in seeing what all of these deeply offended women regarding the binder comment had to say about the Monica Lewinski deal. Mika must have something on record concerning that ‘non-issue’ as described by the libs back then.
