27. As others are saying ... she is a right wing mouth piece ... but not a good one.

She's on MSNBC, but she's about as liberal as Joe Scarborough.

If you watch her show, you will find that she allows Republicans to recite RW talking points, almost unquestioned. Occasionally, she asks them a follow up, but its usually worded to give them an easy OUT.

When she talks to other talking heads, she tries her best to frame the discussion within RW boundaries. When a Dem is on, she tries to frame the questions in a manner negative to the President and the left.

But she's not good at it. What you can notice (and this is what might have raised your radar) is that she stutters a bunch as she tries to bridge her way to the RW talking point and framing. Its noticeable. You can see her trying to build the question so it reinforces some RW perspective. But it takes her too long. So she stumbles verbally as she does so.

You can also notice when a strong dem smacks one of her silly framings into the cheap seats. She becomes very flustered. Because her efforts to reframe things in a RW model causes her to make mistakes, she can't respond when a stronger Dem point those out and disagrees with her framing.
