Mika: Palin and Paris Hilton have a lot in common

posted at 12:45 pm on June 30, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

Is Sarah Palin as “significant” as Paris Hilton? So says Mika Brzezinski in what has become a rather notorious episode of MSNBC’s Morning Joe. My good friend Matt Lewis appeared on the show this morning to discuss his new book, The Quotable Rogue: The Ideals of Sarah Palin in Her Own Words, and made the argument that Palin has “driven the debate” on a wide range of public policy for the last two years, especially with her Tea Party activism. Brzezinski scoffed and said that Palin might be no more significant than a lightweight celebrity more known for a sex tape than deep political thinking:

Joe Scarborough read Brzezinski out for her comment, noting that Palin is only one of two women to have run on a major-party ticket for Vice President:

GEIST: You said a minute ago, Matt, she’s the most significant woman of the 21st century. I can just hear our viewers screaming at their TVs. What about Hillary Clinton? Do you really think she’s the most significant, more so than Hillary Clinton?

BRZEZINSKI: I can’t, I can’t –

LEWIS: I said arguably, and I think you could make a case for Nancy Pelosi, as well, by the way, and Hillary Clinton and I’m sure some others. But I think you could make a good case for Palin because of the way — look at the Tea Party movement, which she was sort of at the forefront of. I think you could make a good case that Sarah Palin was in fact the most significant woman in terms of driving the debate, and certainly in terms of media coverage Sarah Palin has dominated it.

BRZEZINSKI: Yeah, but so does Paris Hilton, but that doesn’t mean they’re significant.

SCARBOROUGH: Hold on one second, don’t — let me stop right here. Don’t compare her to Paris Hilton.

BRZEZINSKI: I didn’t. I’m just saying –

SCARBOROUGH: You said so is Paris Hilton. You put her in the same category.

BRZEZINSKI: No. I’m saying there are people who get media coverage that maybe shouldn’t?

SCARBOROUGH: She’s one of two women — hold on a second, Matt.

LEWIS: The death panel comment is –

SCARBOROUGH: Hold on, hold on, hold on. Okay, let’s put it in perspective. I’m tired of her. People ask, “Why do we bring her up.” They’ll ask, “Why are we talking about her here.” You talk about Paris Hilton. I think that feeds into that narrative. Here’s the bottom line: She is one of the two only women who have ever been nominated for vice president of the United States of America. That ain’t nothing. It’s just like Dan Quayle for four years after he was vice president –

BRZEZINSKI: Okay, you’re going to have to let me respond.

SCARBOROUGH: — garnered more attention than that. That is why she remains significant.

BRZEZINSKI: No. I’m going to tell you there already was one and given the women that we have on the global landscape today, like Hillary Clinton, I mean, my lord. I’m sorry.

SCARBOROUGH: She’s in the top 10. I’m not saying she’s the most significant. You compared her to Paris Hilton.

BRZEZINSKI: No. I compared his statement about media coverage to Paris Hilton, okay? So, you know, you can jump on that like some of the –

Scarborough’s right, and even undersells his point. Her significance started as governor of Alaska, and then progressed as a national-party nominee for VP. But she’s done even more since then. Her PAC supported a number of Republicans in the 2010 midterms, most of whom won their elections in part due to her support. Palin has done as much as anyone has in the past two years for political organization in both grassroots and traditional party structure, all while being ridiculed by media figures like Brzezinski, whose main claim to fame is … being on television, and being the daughter of a former National Security Adviser in the Carter administration. If anyone has less standing to make a point about superficial celebritydom on Morning Joe, I’d like to know who it might be.

Besides, let’s not sell Paris Hilton short, either. She managed to sound more coherent than Barack Obama on economics during the 2008 campaign.

Mika is dumb but choosing Palin or Bachmann as our nominee would cost us the general election.

mika was just taking the oppurtunity to try to drive the narrative that Palin is a celeibrity not a politician some more. the 24,000 emails showed that narrative to be bunk. even Joe has seen the waste of effort that narrative is sadly many on hotair have not.

TimeTraveler on June 30, 2011 at 5:02 PM

Because it isn’t true.

a general election comes down to two people and one choice. Obama or someone else. You are not very likely to vote for Obama if the other person has your convictions puts forward your policies and will benefit you even if you don’t “like” the person.

If however the choice comes down on election day between personailty I.e Obama vs Obama lite they will vote for the one they like.

Obama vs Palin or even Obama vs Perry comes down to one of policy and vision for the country not presonal.

Palin and Perry wins

Obama vs Mitt comes down to personality
Obama wins
and

Obama vs Bachmann will come down to experience and policy. Maybe Bachmann could win on the policy side but the experience side will give Obama a big opening to attack with.

MSNBC (and CNN, for that matter) are prototypical bottom-feeders.

And they wonder why no one watches their shows.

Outside the NBC Green Room, Chris Matthews is utterly irrelavant (at least if ratings are an accurate barometer of his worth), but NBC nonetheless regards him as a hot property.

And Morning Joe and his cast of Send in the Clowns commentators and guests are equally laughable.

Actually, that statement’s blatantly unfair to Paris Hilton. By the time the Hilton fortune got down to her generation, it was so diluted, all that was left was living in a hotel room at a place named for her grandfather. Her parents are basically well-to-do squatters. Paris ~ whatever her morals ~ has made her OWN considerable fortune with some very astute business dealings besides the crap that makes TMZ.

tree hugging sister on June 30, 2011 at 6:19 PM

I wasn’t aware of the Matt Lewis book. Looks interesting. Has some good endorsements too:

- Governor Rick Perry, 47th Governor of Texas

Sarah Palin is one of the most important conservative leaders in America — and Matt Lewis is one of my favorite writers. Every conservative ought to have a copy of the Quotable Rogue in their personal library — if for no other reason than to refute the distortions and lies constantly hurled at Palin by her detractors.

- Ken Blackwell, former Ohio Secretary of State, senior fellow at the Family Research Council

For all the accolades heaped on Mr. Obama for his soaring rhetoric and brilliant, professorial oratory, it’s hard to deny that Sarah Palin is one of the most quotable leaders of the 21st century. The Quotable Rogue brings that into stunning clarity. And it’s not because she’s controversial — it’s because she’s usually just right.

- Andrew Breitbart, Breitbart.com, author of Righteous Indignation

Sarah Palin drives the left crazy and makes many of the Republicans who collaborated with Democrats to destroy our fiscal wellbeing duck and cover. Matt Lewis captures, through Sarah Palin’s own words, her wit, wisdom, and basic sense that America remains the last best hope for mankind.

BillH on June 30, 2011 at 7:05 PM

Paris has actually been extremely successful in her business endeavors, as has Palin. So while this gal may think they’re “insignificant” in her eyes, millions of other people obviously don’t agree. They buy Palin’s books, they show up to hear her speak, Paris sells the hell out of anything she puts her name to. Can you imagine Mika drawing a crowd for any reason? I don’t know that many would even cross the street to hear what she has to say about anything. She sounds like a sour grape.

I was gonna respond to that but you said it better than I could…and in just one sentence…

Unseen….Your loyalty to and knowledge of SP is inspiring…

not even close. It has nothing on the Al sharpton comment.

Who lit the fuse on Mika’s tampon?

Birds of a feather. Clearly you are another one of those who make Palin look unelectable with your misguided rationalization of her missteps, disjointed speaking style, and abdication of her governorship.

Besides, let’s not sell Paris Hilton short, either. She managed to sound more coherent than Barack Obama on economics during the 2008 campaign.

Low bar Ed. Very low bar.

Truer words were never spoken, but this will probably result in at least 30 posts by the crank (who is in awe of himself, which is good because no one else is).

when they tried to say Palin was the al sharpton of the right. That was the lowest blow besides the tucson thing in my book.

What is a Mika?

csdeven,

you know you do your candidate no favors by stating you will not listen to other candidates. It makes you appear closed minded and unable to reach. I at least listen to the other candidates before finding 99% of them to be pale shadows of Gov Palin. I give every candidate a fair shake before decising who to support. if some other candidate comes around I would have no problem supporting him or her over Gov Palin. In fact I look for those candidates so that I know my choice is the right choice. Unlike you who have closed your mind and blindly supprt the flipflopper Mitt for years when evidence shows he is not worthy of your support.

Sad really I hate close minded people.

Yeap she is still fighting.

PPP

The most popular of the Republican candidates, as measured by favorability rating, is Palin at 62/27. The big question with her poor horse race performance is this- are people not supporting her because they don’t think she’s Presidential material, even if they personally like her? Or is her low support because people don’t think she’s running? If it’s the former her prospects aren’t very good but if it’s the latter and she does end up entering the race there could be an immediate, significant improvement in her numbers

Unless I am wrong, Paris Hilton will resemble Dear Leader in her worst aspects. Specifically, I think she is an unfocused attack machine unable to cope with problems.

See if the show The World According to Paris According to Paris bears this out.

Spoiled people typology, anyone?

However, I think Paris does care about her friends and folks in pain and has a cool pink Bentley….BTW, where did the VW thread go?
