Mika, Please Speak Up or Shut Up.

Every morning I watch Morning Joe. After Joe was gone for nearly two weeks, I realized how much I missed the bastard. Mika has just gotten intolerable. Apparently not content enough to stand up for what she really thinks, she seems to have adopted Joe's own opinions in an effort to make a much duller show.
Maybe it's just that I haven't seen it long enough to know what she's always been like, I only started watching it a few months ago. But damn, she's terrible at playing the contrarian Democrat. She seems to have no real rhyme or reason for thinking the stimulus bill is messed up or that we need to worry about our deficit, she just says that it's so. At least Joe gives full explanations for his nonsense. Mika is the only person on television that can make a statement that people on the show agree with and then halfway admonish those people for agreeing with what she said. Clearly she has her own opinion and she often shows it, but as of late, the opinions I saw her defend a few months ago now seem to be deliberately dropped one by one.
Boo, Mika. Start speaking up for your own opinions and start fighting Joe again. Watching you two get along is dull as hell.
