Chris Matthews gets it....

Sister Ruth pointed me too this after reading the post about Shelly and the chickenhawks like Cheney who hide behind her. It's a 'video' of Imus' boring ass show when Chris Matthews called in for an interview. It's long (about 12 minutes) but he tags the neocons perfectly. An excerpt:

MATTHEWS: I think we’ve completely lost the ability to be a power broker. Look at Condi Rice, it’s a joke. He trusted the pencil necks–it’s ideology with this crowd.

MATTHEWS: It’s all ideology with this crowd. All they care about is ideology. The President bought it, hook, line and sinker. He had– but you know, it was just put into his head, some time after 9-11, and his philosophy is what he has given it. He didn’t have to have any philosophy when he went in, and they handed it to him. These guys– the guys–you know, the guys that you used to make fun of at school–pencil necks, the intellectuals, the guys you never trusted. All of the sudden, he trusts the intellectuals, the guys you knew at school, yeah, they’re a bunch of pencil necks and now he buys–completely–their ideology, because he didn’t have one of his own coming in. That was his problem. I don’t know what Bush stood for, except I’m a cool guy and Gore isn’t, and that was our problem. We elected the guy because he was a little cooler than the other guy, and, I hope the next election, it isn’t a problem of who goes to bed with their wife at 9:30 at night, or who knows how to tell a joke on a stage. But it’s who had the sense of strength that comes from having read books, most of their life, tried to understand history

Then I found this yesterday and I simply could not believe I found myself agreeing with Chris Matthews AND Patrick Buchanan. Seriously, watch it.

Could Bob Shrum be more of a tool? When the hell did NBC hire him as a 'political analyst'? Morons.
