    And apparently stole the vowels from her name. Sad.

  • Borat

    If it didn’t happen to Campbell Brown, I’m not interested. But now, I fear she is out of my life.

    Can any of you who figured out how to ad block her tell me how I can permanently bring her back, in every website I look at?

  • Keram2

    Wait? Where’s Giant Campbell Brown? Without her enormous visage staring at me, the world feels cold… so very, very cold. *shivers* Must… go… EcoDrive…

  • BarthexDeRosa

    This wouldn’t have happened to Uncle “Meathook” Zbigniew.

  • Giant Robot

    No backward-initial-face-carving? A little disappointing…

  • freakishlystrong

    I wish somebody would mug Joe, hard. (Geddit “mug” “Joe”?) I hate that blowhard.

  • Canuckledragger

    Coulda been worse. She coulda been found dead next to Scarborough’s desk.

    >>Coulda been worse. She coulda been found dead under to Scarborough’s desk.


  • TGY

    He needs a kick in the balls.

  • AngryBlakGuy

    …Mugged = Free Market!

  • Larry McAwful

    A mugger is just a conservative who hasn’t made his really big score yet.

  • Serolf Divad

    Well, to be honest, Mika gets mugged every time she comes on the show.

  • Larry McAwful

    [re=201872]Serolf Divad[/re]: Zing! Which is why I’m more likely to spend my free hour before work in the morning at my computer playing Civilization IV than I am to spend it watching Morning Joke.

    When I notice that Scarborough’s not going to be on the show, I make it a point to catch it.

  • spymoose

    Where the hell was her handgun?

  • Come here a minute

    She was mugged by a giant Campbell Brown.

  • norbizness

    Be careful, Sara: “Famous MSNBC Host” is an oxymoron so compact it could develop into one of those Earth-swallowing mini-black holes.

  • m_supercomputer

    I bet it was the Mayflower – there were an unusual number of cop cars there this morning, enough to suggest something happened with someone semi-famous, but not enough for someone actually important.

  • joezoo

    The mugger probably thought he was just treating her in the manner to which she is accustomed.

    But no, seriously, mugging isn’t funny. Scarborough yes, mugging no.

  • binarian

    [re=201860]Giant Robot[/re]: DAMMIT!!!…you beat me to it….get it? Beat? Yeah ok mugging isn’t funny.

  • Smackdown

    This was all an elaborate setup to see if Joe would rescue her, shirtless, just like the story she submitted to alt.scarborough_fanfic group.

  • whatever_dc

    i’m ashamed to admit that i would do joe scargorough…

    but seriously — what hotel was this at? being in a “good district” really opens the door to a lot of hotels as opposed to it being the best western in anacostia. jeebus — i need more eggnog! *hic*

  • ph7

    Well, a man’s got to defend the bitch he’s bangin’

  • Miller

    At least it’s good that Joe has denied any involvement with the mugging and will be resigning from the show to spend more time with his children and to aid in the investigation. Hopefully the mugging will be ruled accidental so he can go on with his broadcasting career.


  • Doglessliberal

    OK, the WTOP story says he asked for $20, and she gave him $6 and he left. This is a panhandler, not a mugger. If that is the case, this is one idiotic, out-of-touch princess.

  • frumious_bandersnatch

    [re=201926]Smackdown[/re]: Here are teh internetz yu won!!!

  • finallyhappy

    Gee, I hope Fenty will get the police more involved in the real crimes in DC. If she gave the guy $6 bucks when he asked for $20 and he didn’t punch, knife or shoot her- it is a win-win situation in DC.

  • Heywood Floyd

    That was the best teevee that team has produced EVER. If you keep your eyes on Mika you can see that it is clearly not FINE. Finally, some truth.

  • davesnothere

    That actually does suck, because Mika once refused to read some drivel about Paris Hilton or somesuch on the air on a day when several hundred Iraqis had just been wiped out. Joe, on the other hand…

  • tonehedge

    Blaggy gets another one.

  • sanantonerose

    Joe is mentally hitching his pants up around his his balls.

  • actor212

    [re=201893]norbizness[/re]: I’m not sure, Norby. The creation of dark energy has caused the singularity that is MSNBC to expand beyond its event horizon, I think. Exhibit A: Keith Olbermann. Exhibit B: Rachel Maddow.

  • Godot

    Wait, why didn’t she or a nearby Good Samaritan just shoot the mugger? The DC gun ban was lifted, and we were promised that would mean crime was over.

  • Larry McAwful

    [re=201970]davesnothere[/re]: I remember that. That was the day I fell in love with Mika. However, her unwillingness to stand up and kick Joe in the face has caused that initial infatuation to fizzle some.

  • TeddyS

    Where’s my Campbell Brown? I awakened this morning to find that our Goddess has misunappeariated from the site, and I dunno wha’ to do… Is she being replaced by mugged Mika, the Joe Scarborough windup bed dolly?

  • sezme

    Why did they bring the Penguin from Batman on to comment?

  • sezme

    Mika is downplaying this so much because she’s just not completely certain that it wasn’t Barack Obama.

  • mephistopheles jefferson

    Did Scarborough actually get all tuffstuff and say he’d go Bernie Goetz on the guy? Plaxico Burress probably more accurate…

  • pepe

    Much Ado About “Mugging”

  • blackdontcrack

    mmmmm Joe Scarborough .. I LUVS HIM!!!!!!!!!!!

  • norbizness

    [re=202002]actor212[/re]: On their best evenings, they get about one-tenth of the audience of a UFC Training Challenge #13 re-run on the Spike Channel.

  • actor212

    [re=202309]norbizness[/re]: Now hang on! I watch them. Sometimes. When I’m sick.

    So that’s more than a half a person!

  • sowbelly

    Rachel Maddow used to publicly mug the pair of them, right in plain sight. I remember seeing it on my television set.

  • Toomush Infermashun

    It isn’t what Mika says, it’s her eyes….there’s so much wounded womanness under Joe’s thumb, EVERY DAY….she’s my favorite submissive, and probably the mugger/street urchin begger’s too…

  • ironyisoverrated

    Actually, this could be a new thing for Scarborough.

    Next on “Revictimization with Joe Scarborough”, Joe will interview Elizabeth F. who, as you might remember, was held captive by her father in a basement dungeon for twenty years, while being raped on a nearly daily basis.

    Joe: “Thanks for speaking to me Elizabeth. So, you were raped, over, and over, and over, and over again by your father for twenty years. How was that for you?

    Elizabeth: “….”

    Joe: “No really, as your father constantly forced himself on you, violating you in every delici – er, digusting way – fast, slow, on all fours, hanging – impregnating you on multiple occasions, was there a moment where you thought you should just put an end to your misery?”
