Mika's Snobby Sneer: Rosie Would Look Too Much Like 'Price is Right' Contestants
But when it came to commenting on popular culture, Brzezinski condescended to both Rosie O'Donnell and average Americans in a way worthy of the high-browest [neologism] of snobs.
At 6:57 am EDT, Scarborough made reference to retiring game show host Bob Barker's recommendation for his replacement.
MSNBC HOST JOE SCARBOROUGH: Bob Barker [said] Rosie O'Donnell would be a great replacement for him on "The Price is Right."The screengrab shows Mika making like an excited audience member.
MSNBC'S MIKA BRZEZINSKI: The problem is she's going to look like the people who run down the aisle all excited.
SCARBOROUGH [feigning confusion]: What the hell does that mean, Mika?No Joe wasn't, and neither are we. We know exactly what Mika meant: Rosie and the audience members don't look like the people in Mika's elite mix.
BRZEZINSKI: Isn't that the show where you go 'come on down!'?
SCARBOROUGH: Yeah. She's going to look like those people? I'm so confused.
ASIDE: Earlier in the show Mika congratulated herself for not having a expressed a single opinion during an entire show at the end of last week. Could Brzezinski have been chastened by this item of mine and/or comments elsewhere in reaction to her having let her liberal Dem slip show on the June 6th episode?
