Why Republicans Keep Winning Elections, Part 9,834 - Chris Matthews on "Hardball" a few nights ago:
"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 who just disagree with us, they are in fact the insurgents, fighting us in their country - if we saw one of them do what we saw our guy do to that guy, would we consider that worthy of a war crimes charge?"Emphasis mine.
Those terrorists we're fighting in Iraq? They're really nice boys. Not bad guys at all. Can you blame them for shooting at our soldiers? Or beheading civilians? Or torturing people? We're in their country, after all.
They're not bad guys.
MSNBC has no shame. Right after Matthews is the smarmy Olbermann, who thinks reporting means telling everyone your moonbat theories, not actually picking up the phone and calling anyone. Surely they can find better liberal talent than these two guys. Is Harry Shearer available? Heck, give Jay Leno a shot on the cable channel. He couldn't do any worse than Matthews or Conspiracy Boy.
