From Hardball ( or as Laura Ingraham puts it "Whiffleball" ) discussing the video of the Marine shooting a wounded Iraqi:
"MATTHEWS: Well, let me ask you about this. If this were the other side, and we were watching an enemy soldier, a rival—I mean, they‘re not bad guys, especially—just people that disagree with it. They‘re in fact the insurgents fighting us in their country."
Chris Matthews is outrageous. The very idea that "insurgents" who terrorize Iraqis, who behead innocent people, who car bomb crowds of Iraqi children gathered for sweets from soldiers are "not bad guys especially" is so outrageous that I wonder for the man's sanity.
An apology would only start Matthews on the road to humanity.
I'm becoming more convinced that Matthews' partisanship has driven the man insane.
