  1. Bob Woodward has been an internationally famous reporter for more than half a century. Why has he never learned how to pronounce the word “nuclear”?

    Speaking of Ari Melber, I was just watching him, and Katrina Van den Heuvel has to be the most obnoxious guest ever to grace this show. And that’s saying a lot. But her constant interruptions and talking over the more interesting guests just so she can spout her annoying platitudes of drivel just pushed me right over the edge today. I had to mute.
  3. There was a typo this morning in one of the pieces Mika was trying to “read.” She practically had a meltdown trying to figure out what she was supposed to say.
  4. And here we go. Ridiculous cheap shot at Obama’s birthday party come up with Meeks and company bemoaning the “optics” as Mika stammers and stumbles her way through yet another vitriolic Maureen Dowd essay filled with snark, spite, and false equivalencies. This is so dumb. Is everyone vaccinated? Yes? Were they tested before attending the party? Yes? Then maybe how about we use this as an example of how to enjoy life safely during COVID? Save your ire for those who are prolonging this pandemic.
  5. Mika is having a conversation with some stupid reporter about Obama‘s birthday party, and the faux outrage over this issue is utterly absurd. Is everyone vaccinated? Is the party outdoors? Are folks getting tested prior to entrance? Yes? Then shut up. What a non-story and non-scandal.
  6. There is another singer-songwriter named Patti Smyth whose name is pronounced "smithe" but that's not who Mika was supposed to be talking about. She was probably so proud of herself thinking she got it right.
  7. I have to confess, I am getting bored with MSNBC and just about everyone on it. I'm tired of Joe's shouting. Tired of Mika flailing and stumbling her way through the news. Tired of Joy Reid's poorly executed snark. Tired of Rachel's long, rambling stories. Tired of Tiffany Cross shrieking at me on Saturday mornings. Tired of Lawrence's drama. Tired of Christ Hayes's outrage of the day. Honestly, the only people I really enjoy now are Nicolle Wallace and Brian Williams. I feel like the rest of them just need to change things up a bit.
  8. She saw them in the window and couldn't resist. [tm Carol Burnett] And big floppy shirts in general. Rashida Jones sports a hideous mustard-colored drapery shirt in her latest Expedia commercial.
  9. This morning’s show so far is a cacophony of paper rustling and heavy sighing happening in the background as guests speak. I’m sure it’s Mika. Does no one know how to mute the mic?
  10. She was REALLY bad today, just flailing and stumbling all over the place. Maybe there is a problem with the MSNBC teleprompters, because I caught Andrea Mitchell at noon and she could barely sputter out her own report. Seriously, though, I think Mika's problem is that she can't decide whether she wants to read the news or comment on it so she constantly trips herself up.
  11. I was never a big Kasie fan either; I always felt like she came from the Chuck Todd Both Sides School of Punditry. Sometimes her commentary outright annoyed me. But my opinion of her changed a bit after the Capitol insurrection; she was so obviously shaken and upset by the events it seemed like she became more human in her appearances.
  12. This is just speculation, but it is clear that Kasie was very traumatized by what happened on January 6. She talks about it a lot. I wonder if she just kind of got to the point where she couldn’t do it anymore. Hat tip to Meeks this morning. She struggled to pronounce “flash flooding,” but she eventually choked it out.
  13. She did not do a good job today. I like Karine Jean Pierre overall, but she didn't bring her best today. She seemed tentative and just babbled a lot of nonsense. The reality is, there's not a whole lot the White House can do that they're not already doing. They need to nod to bipartisanship publicly, but, as was said on the show (or maybe it was a different show), they are applying pressure privately. Calling out Manchin and Sinema publicly is only going to get them to harden their stance. I believe a lot of this is theater - well, at least with Manchin anyway. They need to go through the
  14. This morning, Mika was trying to read COVID statistics on the air and she bungled the reading so badly I honestly could not understand what she was saying. Usually, you can eventually translate her garbles into normal English. Not today.
  15. I watched the entire NYT video on Sunday. It was indeed gut-wrenching, and so deeply upsetting. Good conversation today in the end portion of the show between Eddie Glaude Jr. and some guy who is advocating against the teaching of Critical Race Theory. I thought Joe actually did a decent job moderating the discussion (mainly because he defused tensions and let other people talk for a change). I don't like Eddie, but I agreed with his points. I'd like to know who this "intelligent, well-educated friend" of Joe's is who keeps sending him Chinese cult conspiracy theories.
