Mika Brzezinski Mocks Palin's Founding Father Answer; Then Says "Lincoln" was Her Favorite! - Video 1/14/10
Here is video of MSNBC's Morning Joe crew mocking Sarah Palin for her answer to a question posed by Glenn Beck yesterday. Beck asked Palin (Part 5, 4:30 mark) who her "favorite founding father" is. Palin at first said "all of them," because she went on to explain that they collectively pledged their lives and fortunes to gaining Independence for America. After Beck rudely interrupted her with "bullcrap," she finished her sentence and then said George Washington would have to be her choice because he really led them.
MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski laughs and scoffs at Palin, and then at around the 1:00 mark, you can barely hear her say offhand that "Lincoln" is her favorite! Trouble is, Lincoln was not there! You have to listen close, but she says it just after Pat Buchanan says that Hamilton is his favorite.
Lesson: Don't laugh at and mock someone when you are totally clueless about the subject.
