In Praise of Chris

 
 

Shoot me, I like the guy.  In a time when  too members of MSM are willing to lay down and let their shows become a political venue for whomever they happen to be interviewing Chris Matthews is a breath of fresh air.  Look I know the guy can suffer with attacks of” hoof in mouth disease”,   sometimes with alarming frequency but he understands his job is to go after the truth and won’t allow his show to be used as a tool to further their agenda.  Say what you want about the guy at least he won’t tolerate BS.

  1. GOP senators avoid co-sponsoring campaign finance reform bill

    Color me surprised!

  2. Did you all watch Rachel last night? The thing that struck me and I’m glad that Rachel decided to give some attention to it is that Timothy McVeigh was bullied as a child. I wonder when we are going to start giving this problem (which by just about all accounts is on the rise) the serious attention it deserves.

    LATimes story on turning the Hotel Normandie into a “pot-tel.”

    For you, Brian. I didn’t know what 420 was (yeah, well); am just celebrating getting through 419 without any political violence.

  4. 420, 4:20 or 4/20 (pronounced four-twenty) refers to consumption of cannabis and, by extension, a way to identify oneself with cannabis subculture.[1][2]

    RE: Chris Matthews. I think he’s a good guy. However, a memorable viewing was when he was on The Daily Show. He couldn’t stand up to Jon. Don’t think he understood the concept.

    In reality, he drives me nuts because he continually interrupts his guests and won’t let them finish a sentence. He’s not on my watch list anymore. Rachel and Keith rate DVR time.

    Brian,
    Good Post! I can’t disagree with what you said about Matthews but he’s also a pain in the ass! I used to watch his show faithfully,but the anti-Clinton drumbeat and his constantly interrupting his guests caused me to stop watching.Give me Rachael and Ed Schultz..

  7. Hey Tony how things going over at Craig’s Birthers Blog?

    The Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum will honor President Bill Clinton for his work in helping Oklahoma City transform following the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building almost 15 years ago and for his international peace work during his presidency and over the past decade.

  9. Hey nanny how you feeling?

  10. nannymm

    I’m feeling better, Brian, just really tired. I’m heading to bed. Talk to you all tomorrow.

    Arizona is really becoming the bottom of the barrel of states. It’s taking over from Utah and the other southern states.

    Absolutely can’t believe that we’re going back instead of forward in our state. Just a bunch of stupid repugs.

  12. Such is the price of all that sunshine and low humidity Bev.

    Ha ha,yep its been silly season on few threads.I mean really,its just one poster.Its typical though,despite evidence to the contrary they(birther’s) still spew their nonsense.I mean links being presented from this poster are from G.Gordon Liddy,enough said,wacko..

  15. Cool event of the day:

    My newphew is going to a luncheon at the EEOB today hosted by the VP!

  16. TempeBev

    It’s too high a price – I’ll take a few more cloudy days with some rain and cooler temps in exchange for this stupidity.

  17. nannymm

    I don’t blame you, Bev. Arizona is right up there with South Carolina and Texas on the craziness scale. It must be so embarrassing for those of you who are sane. My heart goes out to you.

    Brian, kudos to your nephew. He’s moving on up. 🙂

    more stupidity at the Supreme Court. “What is the difference between an email and a pager?”, Chief Justice Roberts asked. Thanks Dubbya.

    Unfortunately, this is a take-off on something the New Jersey Teacher’s Union started. In their version, they wanted God to know that their favorite Governor was Chris Christie. This is why we need to be very, very careful what we say.
    Of course, the right wingers called that a death threat. Now, well, I doubt it….
