I missed this earlier this week, as did most other conservative bloggers, but it seems that MSNBC once again enabled a Palin-basher to spew her hatred of the former Alaska governor on national television.
Tina Brown is founder and editor-in-chief of The Daily Beast website and a convinced Leftist. Needless to say, she also hates Palin’s guts, which automatically makes her one of MSNBC’s all-time favorite bloggers.
“Morning Joe” hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski pointed out that Palin is closing in on President Barack Obama in the polls. Does this mean she is a viable candidate in 2012, they wondered? Brown’s answer:
What people are responding to is that great vitality, that confidence – it doesn’t matter that the confidence is based on a kind of total ignorance. The fact is that there is a vitality about her that people like.
Now, I’m not American, but even I am annoyed by Brown’s lack of respect for Palin and the American people. Sure, she may have made some mistakes last year and, truth be told, she didn’t always handle difficult questions well, but to label her – and indirectly her supporters – “ignorant” is both disrespectful and wrong.
