In a hilarious outburst, this morning on NBC’s “Today Show,” host Matt Lauer asked dizzy, clueless guest co-host, Campbell Brown, “Is there such a thing as the female brain?” In the case of ditzy, liberal, pro-Islamist Campbell Brown, the answer is probably “no.”
Lauer and Brown were doing a segment on MTV’s 25th anniversary and were playing “Video Killed the Radio Star” by The Buggles, the first song played on MTV 25 years ago. He said the name of the song and the group and then asked Campbell Brown what the song was. The clueless Brown didn’t know the answer, despite having just been clued into it. So, Lauer responded with the sarcastic “Is there such a thing as the female brain?” to tremendous boos from the outdoor audience.
The ditzy Brown, of course, took the insult. That might be because, in Campbell Brown’s case, there, indeed, might not be such a thing as the female brain. After all, she spent a great deal of time “dating” (euphemism) Saudi Arabia spokesman and BS artist Adel Al-Jubeir.
And that is brainless. But not as brainless as NBC allowing her to “report” on Saudi then-Crown Prince Abdullah’s visit to the Bush ranch in Waco, Texas. In a glaring journalistic conflict of interest, she was “dating” the Saudi’s Jubeir at the time, and strangely, didn’t mention the ban on women at the Waco airport’s tarmac and air traffic control tower. More proof that pillow talk is the most effective form of speech.
And that, in certain cases, Lauer’s comment was correct.
