Contessa Brewer vs. John Ziegler re: Sarah Palin -- 'Cut the mic, please'

In an MSNBC interview today, Contessa Brewer ferociously batted cat toys around via satellite with radio host John Ziegler, whose on-camera presence is strongly reminiscent of SNL-era Norm MacDonald. Ziegler had interviewed Gov. Sarah Palin in response to a recent Late Show with David Letterman Top Ten List that mocked her typical “slutty flight attendant” attire. (Palin called Letterman “pathetic”; you can listen to the Ziegler/Palin radio chat here.) Right off the bat, Ziegler thanked Brewer for having him on “Barack Obama’s Official Network.” Zing! “Do you even want to do the interview?” Brewer wondered. Oh, he sure did. Watch the sparks fly in this very special episode of Adventures in Talking Over Each Other. Cut the mic, please! Someone. Anyone.

    She sashayed her sexy butt in designer fitted suits and tall Cole Haan boots throughout the campaign & now she can’t take the joke that she herself created. Get over it.

    Ziegler is awesome. He ate up Contessa. Obviously, she couldn’t take it and had 0 comebacks. Nice Job

    • TexasGirl

      WOW..This guy Zigler is an idiot. You can not have a normal conversation with someone that is closed minded…he went on there to fight and sound like an idiot and he did his job. Nice!!!

  • Jp

    I heart Contessa Brewer! She doesn’t screw around! She’s about to dial 1-800-CUT-A-B*TCH!

  • American

    Kudos to Ziegler! I’m so tired of these adolescent hypocritical libs.

  • Melissa

    Haha I love a good trainwreck. Way to stick to your guns (literally – BANG! BANG!) Ziegler.

    Wow, that guy was a jerk and a half. Contessa was right. She was just giving him a forum to talk about his interview, and he could have said whatever nice things he found out about Sarah Palin, but instead he clearly just took his appearance on MSNBC as an opportunity to bash NBC, and not actually say anything. If he’s so upset about the big, bad media (which he kept referring to in the 3rd person, even though he’s in the media) not having real content, maybe he should do something about that, rather than feed the lack of content on the 24 hour news networks.
    And Palin deciding that Letterman was making fun of her because it was a “slow news day”? I think he crossed the line with some of the jokes, but it has nothing to do with the day’s news, because he is not a newsman. He’s a comedian, and he tells jokes about what he thinks will make people laugh, not what is the most important news item of the day.

    That man was horrendous. He was like a petulant child, snapping at and throwing sarcasm around rather than answer a question, simply because of some perceived conspiracy he believes is occurring in the media. Wow. He only made himself look like a fool, and Sarah Palin even worse for defending her in such a fashion.

  • locknload

    Contessa Brewer’s fake puzzlement over whether or not being called a slut is offensive just proves what we already know:
    Hate-mongering aging-adolescent misogynist Lefterman is just another greasy little cog in the bilge-spewing Leftist propaganda machine. His fawning toadies will laugh at anything apparently.
    What a disgusting pig he is, and Contessa Brewer feeds at the same trough.

  • jerry

    This is the only time ratings went up for MSNBC INSTEAD OF TANKING its amazing how consevatives always draw better ratings even if the ratings only peaked at 10 people.It gives me a tingling feeling up my leg.

    Liberals like letterman are truly pathetic. I wonder how you would be reacting if Letterman would have called Obama’s woman a WHORE. I’m sure saliva man Chris Matthews at PMSNBC would be having a heart attack, Schuster would be crapping his pants out of anger, CNN would be calling a boycott along with Jesse Jackson, Sharpton, all calling for the firing of Letterman. C’mon everyone, we all know that ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, PBS, BET, Colbert, Stewart, Hollywood elite, need I say more, they are all in the tank for the worst president in the history of the U.S.A. You people fear Palin, Rush, Hannity, cause you don’t want to hear the truth. Inform your self before this country truly turns in a serious crap hole. Stop falling for the teleprompter president. Look at the economy, it blows, and what does Barry do? Well, gotta blame Bush for the economy…….gotta tell a nation of idiots that “I inherited this from my predecessor.” Do you honestly believe all this nonsense from Barry…..

    Let’s not forget about this gem the classy Letterman said, “The toughest part of the visit (Palin’s in NY) was keeping Eliot Spitzer away from her daughter.” Wilow Palin is 14 years old, that’s a pretty pathetic comment to make.

  • who knew

    This interview definitely showed that Contessa has a little bit more journalistic maturing to do. Ziegler answered her question about Letterman’s “slutty” comment and it threw off the rest of her interview and took her back to her freshman year communications class; confusing.

  • hondo

    Contessa’s a slut? Didn’t I hear that on Conan?
    More people probably watch this clip on the internet than watch MSNBC-.
    They’re so far up Obama’s butt they can report on what kind of mouthwash he uses. I think Olberman said it was SCOPE last week.
