  •  That is the most brazenly misogynistic show on (3+ / 0-)

    the air - I can't believe that Mika stays, thinking she deserves that, for all her talk about strong women, etc.

    They treat her like crap, and she takes it.  I can't stand to watch it any more.  I want to grab Mike and shake her by the shoulders and say, "You don't have to take this crap!"

    "Privatize to Profitize" explains every single Republican economic, social and governing philosophy. Take every taxpayer dollar from defense, education, health care, public lands, retirement - privatize it, and profit from it.

      picture for the article about them
      Mika looks nice but oh that picture is so very wrong for what the show and her role is suppose to be.
      yet perhaps displays h the dominance, slavish submission I hear described here.

      Yet laugh or cry at what the article says

      First, Joe flirted with the idea of running against Barack Obama.
      (snip)
      And just to raise the temperature a tad? After the presidential inauguration in January, Joe (no fan of Mitt Romney’s—”I’ve been very critical”) plans on publishing a memoir that will serve—no joke—as a vehicle to test the waters for a presidential run in 2016. Take that, Mr. Romney.

        That's exactly what I was talking about above.  Republicans everywhere must love that one.  Mika does look great but she also clearly knows her place. ::smh::

        GOTV like your life depends on it ~ it does. Obama 2012!

        I don't understand about Mika:  she runs, she's very fit and athletic, she's a health nut, she's a mom, she acts like a strong woman, she's comfortable in her skin, she's written a very nice book about knowing your own worth especially if you are a girl - and then on set she's treated like crap and TAKES IT.

        NOW - on days Joe is not there, she is usually full-on progressive with her guests.  She hushes in his presence.

        Maybe it's a contractual thing - gotta suffer Joe's misogyny.
