Mika Brzezinski, proud Obama-pologist, almost had a nervous breakdown this morning when former President Jimmy Carter took a pot shot at Edward “Dead Ted” Kennedy.
Blaming Kennedy for his own ineptitude in passing healthcare reform during his tenure in the White House, Carter squarely put the entire blame for that half-assed fiasco on Ted Kennedy, who unsuccessfully challenged him for the Presidency in 1980, causing Ronald Regan to win the election.
Mika, daughter of Carter’s National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, has a history of defending Carter on the show. Check the video as Mika grimaces in discomfort, and interjects various rebuttals, as her fellow panelists unload on the 39th president.
At least as newsworthy as Mika’s reaction was this little pearl from the 60 Minutes interview, scheduled to air this coming Sunday.
At one point, Carter spoke of Ted Kennedy’s blocking of Carter’s legislation. Responded Stahl: “And you blame Teddy?!” How nice for Stahl that she’s still on a first name basis with Teddy-boy….
Here’s a clip of the coming CBS interview that pushed Mika over the edge; Kennedy Responds below:
JimmyCarter Slams Ted Kennedy – 60 Minutes – C…, posted with vodpod
Kennedy, who has not been seen since his departure in August of 2009, has been reportedly working off his Karma by continuing to serve “the people” as steadfastly as he did in the Senate for the 48 years he occupied the seat earmarked for Scott Brown, who finally got ass planted in it this past January.
Politely refusing to criticize Carter’s accusation, Kennedy instead extolled the virtues of his new position as a public servant, albeit in a completely different environment.
“You think its hot on Capitol Hill? You should see what I’ve got to put up with here!” he said, chuckling in that famous condescending Kennedy fashion.
“This has been a real lesson in public service” he continued. “Even though the days are longer, the dress code is far more relaxed here.
I couldn’t imagine doing this in a suit and a diaper” Kennedy quipped while he rustled up a Hootersized serving of wings and a Cobb Salad for a nearby table.
Elsewhere, a minuscule cow who just loves pop music was cited as the world’s smallest by The Guinness World Record.
