Shrill Harpy Mika Brzezinski Totally On The Rag Over Paycheck Fairness Act (Video)

Total bitchfaceGod what is up with that mad cow Mika Brzezinsky? More importantly, why are “Morning Joe” and MSNBC letting her be the person to moderate the panel on how the GOP blocked the Paycheck Fairness Act? Did they not notice that she is herself an un-man, and therefore must totally smear her period blood all over men’s right to earn and keep all the money, because otherwise “lawyers” and “government”?

Anyway, get a load of the lone chick on the entire show (we’re not sure why they let on even one of ‘em, since punditing obviously requires physical as well as logical strength) stone cold proving that broads are too emotional and hysterical and possessed of ovaries and fallopes to be able to think clearly about things like … well, whatever they are talking about. Someone in Congress did a thing, right? We don’t know, we heard there was a new Manolo Blahnik somewhere.

Mika, you’re adorable when you’re so angry you don’t know whether to laugh or cry. Cheer up, kitten. We’ll take you on a shopping spree, buy you something lacey. It’ll look even better on the floor.

    Joe Scarborough should make her go to the menstrual hut until she is done riding the cotton pony. Kathy "Me" Giffords can fill in for 4 days. There is no way that bitch is still cranking her own estrogen and still having periods.

      1. Barb

        Fuck, I left an "s" after Kathy's Lee's last name and you replied too quickly for me to correct it. Oh well, sue me.

        1. weejee

          Oh, I though it was the apostrophe before the 's' that was missing, what with personal possessive being one key to the Kathy Lee me.

    1. chicken_thief

      "There is no way that bitch is still cranking her own estrogen and still having periods. "

      "that bitch" being Kathy Lee, Mika, or Joe?!

  2. bumfug

    She makes the same as Joe, right? I mean they're co-hosts so she's not subordinate or anything…

    1. Beowoof

      Well Joe is the (non)Talent. He has a penis and from best I can tell spends a lot of time fapping it.

    2. BarackMyWorld

      Well, the show's not called "Morning Mika"…because maybe then I'd be more inclined to watch.

      1. MittBorg

        OT: Hey, Chet, I've been a slacker, but I WILL get around to posting that recipe today while recuperating from my latest injuries, I promise.

          1. MittBorg

            Not good, darlin'. It seems to be freezing up periodically, so I don't have a full range of motion, and it's also making alarming cracking noises. Pain pills are keeping the pain down, but I might need to get it looked at. There is NOTHING I hate worse than going to the doctor unless it's dying, so maybe I can put it off a while more.

            How YOU?

          2. starfanglednut

            Oh, poor wing. Don't try to flap it. You'll just go round in circles. I'll bring you a seed and honey stick from the pet store. I'm good. Just came back from the gym, which really helps with the overall grouchiness.

        1. Chet Kincaid

          Haha, you must think a "co-host" is one of two "hosts." If she were a "host," she would have equal right and opportunity to bloviate, cut off anyone else on set, and ridicule any opinion she disdains. In show-business, a "co-star" or "co-host" is by definition a subordinate; nobody calls Joe the "co-host" of the show.

  3. Callyson

    Fuck this, I give in…time to incorporate. It will be interesting to see what it's like to be treated like a person…

  4. Callyson

    I don't know why Howard Dean is surprised about Scott Brown. The man who uses a Senate victory speech to pimp out his daughters is unlikely to understand why fair pay might be important to the wommenz…

      1. SorosBot

        It's just like how they all voted for Bush Sr. because Dan Quayle was such a dreamboat!

        1. MittBorg

          I know you were probably just a kid at the time, but that was exactly how they were selling that dolt. As a handsome head-turner who would charm the women right into the voting booth.

  5. BarackMyWorld

    Even though the bill was filibustered in a party-line vote, THERE IS NO REPUBLICAN WAR ON WOMEN!!!

  6. mavenmaven

    I have to admire the irony of Harry Reid essentially calling Romney a pussy on this matter.

  7. Callyson

    Made it almost to the five minute mark before I could not stand watching four men and one woman talk about equal pay for women. FFS, MSNBC, are you trying to imitate FOX too? Ask CNN how well that worked for *their* ratings…

    1. Millennial Malaise

      Seriously, and she had to be there since she's the co-host. Chris Hayes is the only host with enough self-awareness to invite appropriate guests for things like this. During the height of the War on Women, he even put a few colored ladies on his panel.

    2. Negropolis

      I was actually surprised by the conversation, though. Anyone who watches Morning Joe usually knows that they play the false equivalency game on a near daily basis. That they were all pretty much in agreement that this was a Republican foul was kind of surprising. And, the guys were checked hubris, I thought, in discussing the politics of this, allowing Mika to speak on the policy.

    1. MittBorg

      Is size all that counts? Personally I'm no fan of the huge racks sported by American women. Big boobs are nice, up to a point, but geez. Compact and neat stands the test of time better.

    1. Not_So_Much

      GOP seems to be answering that question based upon their extensive research of the 'Letters to Penthouse'.

  8. scvirginia

    Really, the menz are just looking out for us, money being the root of all evil, etc. We ought to be grateful that we're not overburdened with spending power.

  9. WhatTheHeck

    A real GOP man is: “A man for all seasons.”
    A real GOP woman is: “A woman for all seasonings.”

  10. pdiddycornchips

    What's the difference between Mika and Bristol? A decade maybe? She's got a famous dad who did some things and like all children of famous people, she's waltzed into a fancy job most mortals would kill for. Please honey, don't talk to me about equal pay. If not for your dad, you'd be a second shift waitress at an IHOP in Jersey.

    1. Generation[redacted]

      Just goes to show, women in politics should stick to the important issues, like what to name their puppy.

    2. anniegetyerfun

      Mika once tried to light a story about Paris Hilton (one that she was supposed to read on air) on fire to protest the dumbing down of news. That alone is enough to make her more qualified than anyone who works for CNN.

      1. Boojum

        "Tried"? As in, "was too much of a failure to operate a lighter" or as in "was hogtied by the Fire Marshall and waterboarded"?

        1. tessiee

          Now I'm picturing her igniting the paperwork on camera, thereby setting off the sprinkler system and getting everyone and everything soaked with water.
          This would actually improve most shows.

      2. Wile E. Quixote

        Yeah, but Mika would never, ever get a job at CNN because she has prettier hair than Anderson Cooper. He's got that in his contract you know.

    3. SorosBot

      So a woman benefits from having a famous dad by NBC making her the second banana on a morning chat show on basic cable; meanwhile they named a certain very young man with a famous father one of their top election correspondents on the actual broadcast network right after he graduated college, and have kept him on as one of their top congressional correspondents and now an anchor despite his being utterly incompetent at the job, unlike Mika; however, unlike her he has a penis.

      Nope, not feeling the outrage here.

      1. not that Radio

        "Luke Russert: Nepotist Prince"

        Russert is emblematic of the sort of nepotism that gives nepotism a bad name….He seems dimly aware that nepotism won him his job, but in denial as to the fact that it’s allowed him to keep it.

        1. SorosBot

          Heh; and my, what a clueless douchebag he is. Although he was right about one thing; he is a lot like Joe Buck, who is just as completely incompetent at the job he got because of his famous dad and as much of an annoying asshole. But sports announcing is just a little less important than political journalism.

    4. Negropolis

      Ummm…a fucking brain? We make a lot of fun of Mika, but Bristol is not even in her solar system. So, let us not get stupid, now.

      If I have any criticism of Mika, it's that she too often plays the "dumb blond" to make the Dumb Joe feel better about his intellectual inadequacies.

  11. anniegetyerfun

    Aw, poor Mika. I want to laugh/cry whenever I think about this, and fortunately, no one ever tries to film me. If they did, they'd be disturbed at my patented Ugly Cry.

  12. SorosBot

    These ladies are getting uppity, next thing you know they'll start thinking their opinions on birth control and abortion policy should have equal weight to those of wise old white men.

    1. pdiddycornchips

      She shouldn't be the face of the equal pay movement is all I'm saying. In the real world, most of us don't have a famous relative. I am sure Mika does just fine financially. Giving Mika a fat raise to equal Joe's paycheck does nothing for the average working woman.

    1. tessiee

      Caring what wimmenz [snicker!] "think"?
      *hits hidden button for Independent Thought Alarm*

  13. SayItWithWookies

    The issue might have hit close to home for the MSNBC host, who experienced her own fight against pay disparity in 2008. She almost left "Morning Joe" after discovering that she was the lowest paid person on the show's panel. At that point, her co-host Joe Scarborough was making fourteen times as much as she was.

    Oh, that's not even a fair comparison — they had to pay Joe a lot — otherwise he would kill again.

    1. Pseudonymously_Joe

      Besides, that pay disparity enabled Morning Joe to be "flexible", and "efficient", Mika certainly wouldn't want to be paid more at the expense of "flexibility" and "opportunties" that only arise from the "freedom" of being paid vastly less than her male co-panelists.

    2. anniegetyerfun

      You'd think that this issue wouldn't shock her at all, then. She should be sitting there, drinking directly from a whiskey bottle, and slurring, "What the fuck does it matter, bitches? You think they pay ME well? They fucking DON'T."

    3. Chet Kincaid

      And maybe I would feel sorry for Mika if she actually made an effort to have a voice on that show, to stand up for herself, or push for more female guests. In fact, I would actually respect her if she resigned.

      1. bagofmice

        Dude, she has been commanding that show recently. All Joe does is provide the entitled white boy perspective, most likely while drunk. When Mika drives, it's watchable.

  14. RedneckMuslin

    I feel so sorry that Mika is going thru all this pain. Hit the Thumbs Up if you are against women suffrage.

  15. marie2007

    I think Mika was victim of salary inequality herself. She went to the execs over it.

    She's on MSNBC every day with the panel of overbearing, extremely loud and incredibly obnoxious males, and sadly, she often allows Joe to humiliate her – she usually can't get a word in edgewise..
    Joe gets whatever he wants – including sharing the political stage with Republicans – but others on the network must toe the line.

    1. Negropolis

      Joe's other pet. While Mika has her moments of striking out against Joe on that shoe, Willie is always up Joe's ass.

  16. Doktor StrangeZoom

    If we start paying women equally, then there'll be unisex toilets and parents will be forced to give their children numbers, not names!

  17. Generation[redacted]

    Look, studies show that children do better when they are raised in a household where the woman earns less. That's just basic science.

  18. Wile E. Quixote

    Jesus Mika, let it go already. Pop a fucking Midol™ and make Joe a sandwich.

  19. owhatever

    Damn women. It's all, "hand over your paycheck," even before I buy beer, then "the electric bill is overdue" when I got a poker game on Friday night, and "The plumber says another blowjob isn't enough to fix the broken toilet" when I got to cover a greens fee on Saturday. Let them go out and earn money. Just don't pay them as much.

  20. Antispandex

    Women. Why should they make more? It is the guys who do the hard work, and the ladies just stay home with the babies! Besides, where we going to get all of those "stripper bucks", if we don't make more than the strippers? You know, the ones who can't keep a man, and are out whoring it up to pay for their ill gotten babies? Doesn't it make more sense to go home to the guy who lightly abuses you…because he makes more money?

  21. rocktonsam

    I KNOW 3 women co- workers from the Wisconsin DNR that make the same as me.

    ZERO, since we ain't got no jobs no moar

  22. rickmaci

    Mika. Babe. Chill. All I want is a comforting blond female voice as background chatter while I drink my first cup of coffee and scan the baseball scores. If I want to hear a woman nagging at full volume until my ears bleed, I'll wake up my wife.

  23. Negropolis

    I'm not surprised by this. She apparently wrote an entire book on this subject.

    Dean made an awesome ppoint. Given that this isn't even going to come up in the House, this was kind of a gimme in the Senate.

  24. lulzmonger

    If you turn the audio all the way up, you can just barely hear Mika's jaw-clenched "fuck a bunch of this" during the weather report.
