Mika: Wayne LaPierre's 'Stupid' Arguments 'Something Sarah Palin Would Say'

Sarah Palin's profile might not be as high as it was a few years ago, but she apparently still serves as a convenient punching bag for the left.

On today's Morning Joe, as Joe Scarborough railed against the allegedly "stupid" arguments NRA leader Wayne LaPierre made on Fox News Sunday yesterday, Mika Brzezinski muttered "something Sarah Palin would say."  Consider that Palin had been in no way quoted, nor had her position on gun control been discussed.  This was nothing more than a gratuitious shot at Palin, obviously still a bogeyman for the MSM. H/t cobokat. View the video after the jump.



 

Watch Scarborough and Brzezinski substitute slurs for reasoned argument.

 

JOE SCARBOROUGH: And this argument, and Chris Wallace really drilled down hard here, the argument. Seriously? That all of our children deserve the same amount of protection as the President of the United States's children? That's the problem with Wayne LaPierre and the extremist wing of the NRA's arguments. They're stupid arguments. They've got to say oh, and while a mother's clutching her Bushmaster with crying children—they're stupid arguments! There's no logic --

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: It's something Sarah Palin would say.
