Dear EW.com-mers: We understand that if you wanted to read about the defeat of the immigration bill or the body count in the floods currently ravaging Texas, you would be on CNN.com, not this site. We also know that you’re undoubtedly about as sick of the Jailbird Millionaress Who Must Not Be Named as the rest of the sentient planet. But it’s still a total kick in the pants to see an honest-to-God news professional completely (and justifiably) lose her shizz over having to cover the heir-head’s Let Freedom Ring media tour as serious news. Witness as MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski finally takes the headlines into her own hands (literally):

We’re not sure what we love most: The failed lighter? The conveniently placed shredder? Her “move the teleprompter down” hand dance? Mika, you’re our new hero. Though the two dudes on either side of you (I like to call them Smugs ‘r’ Us) could really lose a little of the condescension. But what do readers think? Is this tirade as justified as we believe it to be, or has or Paris fatigue swelled our brains and impaired our YouTube judgment?
