Chris Matthews RANTS HUGE

Crooks and Liars - Matthews on Imus: Pencil Neck Foreign Policy

I would highly recommend downloading this and listening to it. Basically Chris Matthews is finally acknowleding how the Neocons steamrolled Bush and now we're acting like freaking idiots. Essentially, he's reaching the same conclusion I did a couple years ago...the Neocons are fricking idiots and their ideology is so warped as to be considered evil. And Bush bought it, hook, line and sinker.

"Chris Matthews, MSNBC: '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, sometime 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. Every mistake we're making in the Middle East right now, was made years and years ago by the British, by the French, but the mistakes they made in Vietnam were made by the French before. In Algeria the French made all the mistakes we're making now."
He goes on for a while, kinda loses it. Hey, Chris...where was this 2 years ago??!!!?!

one night he dreamed he went to heven he noticed a giant wall covered with clocks and each clock had somones name on it he looked to the right for a moment and there stood a man he asked who are you the man said i'm Bennie the gate keeper.
so the man said what are all these clocks for. Bennie replied these clocks represent the living on earth the hands on the clocks will only move when someone lies.
The man replied I see mother teresa name and the hands moved
Bennie said well !!!
then the man asked Bennie where is George bushe's clock Bennie replied his clock is in the head office it's a sealing fan.

Thanks, felderandsons. Nice little anecdote.

The sad part is, it has taken until the last six months to have ironclad evidence of Bush's lies. Before, it was just circumstantial analysis that led one to believe he was being dishonest (perhaps even with himself). Now, it's a frickin' slam dunk.
