During a Tuesday broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Willie Geist interviewed a man wearing a “Mika Made Me Republican” T-shirt.
The man explained that he considers himself an independent, once voting for third-party candidate Ross Perot, but that MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski had pushed him into the Romney camp.
“We found a gentleman sidled up to the bar here, he’s had a couple Bloody Mary’s and he’s got a very important T-shirt. Tell me about it,” said Geist.
“My daughter Ariela was very kind enough to make this. She had built with her sisters a couple hundred Romney signs and we heard Rudy Giuliani speak a couple days ago at the Romney Boca office. And we obviously have a different view than most people here, including Mika,” the audience member explained.
“And I do watch this show every day because I like to hear what the other side has to say, and I don’t need to hear what my opinion is. So I like to hear a diverse opinion and educate my daughters on what that opinion is,” he added.
“And Mika drove you into the arms of the Republican party,” Geist pressed.
“Something like that. I voted for Perot so I’ve been independent, but what can I say?”
Final Thought: Given DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz’ supposed title as “least-effective campaign surrogate,” deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter‘s uncanny ability to make Team Obama look small, and the fact that Mika Brzezinski is apparently driving people into the arms of the Republican Party, perhaps the Romney campaign should consider adding these women to its payroll.
