chocolate-and-blue-swirl-vase_8-beautiful-vases-for-your-homeEven though Jim VandeHei, the new President and CEO of Politico, isn’t on the journalism wing of things anymore, it didn’t stop him from appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” today and discussing politics and the shutdown.

This was his first encounter with the Mika Brzezinksi, Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist since the Sunday evening announcement of his new title. His former position at Politico was Executive Editor.

After Geist made the big announcement, Mika cooed, “So powerful, fancy.” Geist asked, “Do you have, like, expensive rugs in your office now and vases?”

VandeHei took the heat in stride, saying, “My office, it reeks of rich mahogany, yes. I’m going to start speaking in a deep voice [he said, faux deepening his voice]. Clean up my language a little bit.”
