But last week, it was my turn to text him. While watching good old Joe, I saw Mika Brzezinski announce that it was Valerie Jarrett's birthday and she was taking her gal-pal Val some homemade tomato soup. "That's it," I texted my friend. "
Though I haven't seen mention of Mika's tomato-soup love offering on any conservative blogs, there are several posts about the increasingly non non-partisanship on display at Morning Joe.
For instance, after Joe's pious pontificators had a marvelous time spewing their cutting witticisms about the GOP candidates, Mika brought up what I call the "Solyndra Scandal: Part II."
You may have seen -- likely, on a conservative site -- that the Obama Administration begged Solyndra executives to hold off announcing their massive lay-offs until 11/3/10, the day after mid-term elections. And oh, by the way, said Administration officials, we're giving you that next draw on Solyndra's DOE loan. But your December draw? Umm, that's still up in the air. Now, about those lay-offs . . .
After Mika brought up this "pressure" from the White House, a silence fell over these normally decisive, bitingly incisive fast-talking heads.
More curious still, Jon Stewart's take-down of OWS -- the movement Obama virtually adopted as his third child -- was no where to be seen.
Could it be Morning Joe let this Daily Show clip slip on by because the protester's distinction between "property rights" and his own "personal property" would have bewildered these high-brow pundits? I'm just a low-brow blogger mom and it sure baffles me.
