3. She's being positioned as a younger Sarah Palin type.

She speaks in a similar word salad style, maintains a very similar look, and she appeals to the Sarah Palin audience.

Sarah is on her way to Kay Bailey Hutchinson status. Kay would have been a more qualified VP choice for McCain, but Kay was too old. Sarah is nearing her expiration date with the far right.

So Sippy is being positioned to be the right wing's new Sarah. Not smart, not electable, but young and pretty enough to keep old white guys interested.

14. I'm a guy. Granted older and should be lecherous.

But she is not easy on my eyes. She does absolutely nothing for me. But then again. I go beyond just the appearance. I like appearance but what is in their head can turn me off fast. I've learned mostly from being around many co-workers.

17. MSNBC starts at noon, ends at 1pm for me, usually. Starts again at 4.

Today I was trying to get some SotU backstories for a viewing party tonight.

Russett is like cheap wine vinegar. Instead of mellowing with age, he just gets more rancid and foul.

It isn't so much that I do that,as simply not tune in to MSNBC before Martin Bashirs show.....

She is one reason why..But so are Mourning Joke and Andrea Greenspan.....

11. Yep!

I totally understand how you feel. I can't stand her and will not watch the show ever! I do rather feel like there is force involved. I want to watch everyone else but if i do i'm forced to watch her too!

If I hear her and close my eyes, I can actually hear brain cells disintegrating. True story.

15. Thom Hartmann is on at the same time on Free Speech TV. If you can't

get it with your cable, they stream as well on the internet or you may find it on the radio if you are lucky. Your IQ will increase instantly once you tune him in and turn her off.

16. Be thankful she is only on the cycle.

I have not seen her on any other segments such as Maddow, Last Word, etc like others members of the panel have been.

19. I think because you keep watching her, which drives up ratings, which makes money

...which makes MSNBC think it's a good idea to keep her around.

21. It's that whole show.

Pretty much the same sort of bs you hear in a bunch of college grad students hanging out at a bar during happy hour and trying to one up each other in coolness and book-larnin'. Obnoxious, vapid, and cloying.

32. Hit the nail on the head!

Stop watching after Thomas Roberts and only turn it on again when Martin Bashir comes on. Prefer Thom Hartmann on Free Speech.

to her; if you don't like her, change the channel or hit mute. It's really that simple.
