Testosterone-Filled Roundtable

We’re not extreme feminists here in the Fishbowl. But NBC’s “MTP” roundtable was oozing manliness this week with an all-male panel and a nearly all white male panel at that. The roster included GOP Strategist Mike Murphy, NBC’s Chuck Todd, Politico‘s Johnathan Martin, WaPo and MSNBC’s Eugene Robinson and Gov. Terry Branstad (R-IA). Host David Gregory even joked about how they were all sitting around a “boardroom-like table” because that’s hilarious. And all guffawed.

All six men wore dark suits. Branstad and Robinson wore nearly identical red-striped ties. Two of the men — Murphy and Branstad — are particularly pasty and could use some sunshine. Martin looked like he ran into trouble with his hair gel.

Females apparently weren’t available for the panel because they were hanging out over at ABC “This Week’s” roundtable hosted by Jake Tapper in Ames, Iowa. The women around that table included Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham, Radio Iowa News Director Kay Henderson, ABC News Political Director Amy Walter. Males included George Will and ABC News’ Matthew Dowd.

Go white males!
