Somebody needs to wash Mika Brzezinski's snippy little mouth out with soap:

I don't know what the hell she was going on about, but it was very strange. Even stranger, the wingnuts are all taking this as evidence that Joan is really, really stupid like Sarah Palin when she couldn't name what papers she reads.

What am I missing here? Joan asks who on the left is the equivalent of Rush and Beck and Mika morphs into one of those mean girls who bullied that that little girl into suicide. Who are these "obvious" leftwing extremists ("beep, beep, beep") that Joan was supposed to have been calling out? Code Pink? Che's corpse? Are any of them declaring that we are on the cusp of the Fourth Reich and comparing Sarah Palin to vermin? More importantly, have any of them had the leaders of the Democratic party come groveling at their feet begging for absolution?

I honestly don't know what that whole thing was about and from the look on Joan's face, neither did she. Whatever it was, it was very, very rude and Brzezinski owes Walsh an apology.

Update: Joan has written about this and she links to Newsbusters which offers these names as the left wing equivalents to Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck:

Rosie O'Donnell

Mike Malloy

Bill "The Bomber" Ayers

Mrs. Bill "The Bomber" Ayers

Van Jones

Dylan Ratigan

Rachel Maddow

Keith Olbermann

Keith Olbermann

Keith Olbermann

What, no Dixie Chicks?

But hey, I'll bite. I hereby admonish Rosie, Mike (is he still around?) Bill "the bomber" and Mrs Bill "the Bomber," Van, Dylan, Rachel and Keith for their extreme rhetoric.

Now maybe The Left will disband all their militias, stop all their death threats, stubble the revolutionary rhetoric and accept the fact that democracy means they have to accept majority rule. In fact, now that I've called out our "leaders", I'll bet it will be as if all that stuff never happened.
