Stephen Colbert “Nails It!”

January 20, 2011 · Leave a Comment


As is so often the case, Stephen Colbert has said it best in his mock rebuke of “Morning Joe” cohost Mika Brzezinski:

“Mika, you need to buck up.  I know you think this story has no purpose other than keeping Sarah Palin’s name in the headlines for another news cycle.

I know you think she has nothing to offer the national dialogue, and that her speeches are just coded talking points mixed in with words picked up at random from a thesaurus.

I know you think Sarah Palin is at best a self-promoting ignoramus, and at worst a shameless media troll who will abuse any platform to deliver dog whistle encouragement to a far-right base, that may include possible insurrectionists.

I know you think her reality show was pathetically unstatesmenlike, and at the same I know you think it represents the pinnacle of her potential, and that her transparent desperation to become a celebrity so completely eclipsed her interest in public service so long ago that there would be more journalistic integrity in reporting on one of the lesser Kardashian’s a#& implants.

I know, I know that when you arrive at the office each day you say a prayer that maybe, just maybe, Sarah Palin will shut up for just ten f*&cking minutes.

I know, I know because I can see it in your eyes.

But guess what Mika, that’s the gig.  It’s only January of 2011 kido.  You still have at least two years ahead of you.  You want to stay in this game you dig deep.  You find another gear.  You show up to work every day, get your hair and makeup done.  You slap on a smile.  You get on T.V., and repeat what Sarah Palin said on Hannity last night right into the lens.  You know, news. 

I have faith in you kid, you can do it.  I’ll see you in New Hampshire.  I’ll buy.”
