I think PhysioProf may have been ranting and raving at some point about insufferable asshole Joe Scarborough and his “Morning Joe” morning swill. PhysioProf has noted that Scarborough’s sidekick Mika Brzezinski sometimes visibly appears to wish she were somewhere else, not dealing with loonie noxious nutjob Scarborough. Well Mika just got a schweet dig in at Scarborough on the air this morning, which warms the cockles of my fucking heart.
This is from the transcript of this morning’s (January 30, 2008) show, as reported at Media Matters:
SCARBOROUGH: I, actually — I don’t endorse anybody because, as you know, I’m a journalist. However, there’s no doubt, there are two things —
HARWOOD: I get it.
SCARBOROUGH: –that hurt — Mika, don’t make me backhand you. Mika is —
BRZEZINSKI: Oh, lord.
Scarborough was responding to an allusion made by some other craven dipshit on the show to him endorsing a candidate when he remarked “I’m a journalist”. Brzezinski responded by guffawing right in his fucking face, thus eliciting the “don’t make me backhand you” comment. She publicly mocked his pathetically absurd claim to be a journalist, eliciting a remark that demonstrates to any reasonable objective observer that Scarborough is also a despicable misogynist scumbag.
On a more cheerful note, however, PhysioProf absofuckinglutely loved the outright contempt that Brzezinski showed for the former right-wing hackfuck scuzzbucket politician brazenly on his own show! Mika Brzezinski should be the one running the goddamn show. This is what I wrote on the Morning Joe feedback form:
Mika Brzezinski is a vastly more knowledgeable and analytically capable journalist than Joe Scarborough. Scarborough should be fired, and the the show should be changed to “Morning Mika”.
Here’s the Morning Joe contact form (scroll all the way to the bottom). Tell those fuckers to ditch witless cockknuckle Scarborough and give Mika the show.
