Chris Matthews kicks John O'Neill's lying ass
Sometimes I get frustrated with Chris Matthews. It's as if, having worked for Democrats on Capitol Hill, he feels he has to bend over backward to prove he's not biased. When he interviewed Richard Clarke, I laughed out loud as Clarke kept steering him back on course: "Let's stick to the facts, Chris."
But tonight, ol' Chris really did play hardball with John O'Neill of Swift Boat Liars for Bush. When the transcript is available, I'll post highlights -- but for now, here's the Cliff's Notes version:
The Navy saw fit to give Kerry all those medals. Every man who actually served WITH him on those Swift boats says he displayed courage, leadership, and good judgment. None of you served with him, so why should I listen to you?
John Kerry served this country -- and did more for it than Bush ever did.
Way to go, Chris. (It's about time.)
