This morning on MSNBC, things got awkward when Mika Brzezinski attempted to report the story of IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn's arrest and sexual assault charges. Joe Scarborough seemed intent on making light of the situation, and Brzezinski had to scold: "I'm trying to keep you from making jokes about a serious rape charge." Also, apparently none of these people are mature enough to respond appropriately when the word "sodomized" is used. They should be ashamed and embarrassed. Lean forward, indeed.
