...and speaking of Chris Matthews, I call him 'Girly Chris,' he was a guest this morning on the always fascinating Laura Ingraham radio show.
So I'm drinking my coffee listening to Matthews trying to explain that he's NOT a Liberal and that's he's impartial to all the guests on his show. Wow, well, that really woke me up. Chris Matthews is fair and balanced? What a jolt. I mean, who needs caffeine?
Anyway, then Laura immediately busts out audio of a recent Matthews interview with Swift Boat Author John O'Neill, where Matthews is having a complete seizure on the air, yelling over O'Neill, not letting him get a word in.
Then the subject of abortion came up and Chris actually made the assertion that a free society can't place restrictions on the killing of babies. Matthews admitted that abortion is the act of killing a human being, which is considerable progress. At least he's honest about that. But with his tortured Liberal logic, he abhores the idea of halting the killings.
How Democratic! Opposing something but not being strong enough to stand up and correct the inequity. No wonder Democrats are so irrelevant.
Matthews usually says the most illogical things. He has complete meltdowns on his show when he disagrees with a guest. He reminds me of an emotional woman, not to be sexist, 'cause I adore women. He gets hysterical. And I laugh hysterically. I can't take him very seriously.
Oh, he also said that anyone who watches one source of news, rather than absorbing multiple sources of information is 'an imbecile.' I disagree with that too. How can someone who is completely uninformed about current events possibly be expected to form an intelligent opinion of what's going on around the world when they watch CNN? Or the BBC? Or 'Hardball'?
My mind harkened back to a conversation I overheard on a street corner in Los Angeles a week before the election. Three people, two men and a woman, were talking about how much they hated Bush. I was waiting for my car and they stood there parroting bilge they'd heard on 'Hardball.' 'Well I heard on Chris Matthews last night that the undecided voter usually breaks for the challenger...'
That's not true, either. Ditto with Matthews' assertions that the 9/11 Report concluded that Iraq had no connection to al Qaeda.
But dispensing stupidity sure does pay well. 'Girly Chris' just bought a $4.35m home on Nantucket.
You know, I've been feeling really emotional lately...
