Chris Matthews is a blowhard (yes I know redundant) and Jon Stewart should have handed his ass to him last night on The Daily Show. In Jon's defense I can't imagine it was easy to get a word in edgewise, and he did manage to point out that MSNBC is pretty much whoring itself in order to keep up with Fox. Still, he should have challenged Matthews on this stellar bit vis a vis Bush's "Top Gun" revival last week.
Imagine Joe Lieberman in this costume, or even John Kerry. Nobody looks right in the role Bush has set for the presidency-commander-in-chief, medium height, medium build, looks good in a jet pilot’s costume-or uniform, rather-has a certain swagger, not too literary, certainly not too verbal, but a guy who speaks plainly and wins wars.
Yeah, who cares if some of the Democrats are actually veterans when George has the body I always wanted?
...John Kerry entered the Navy after graduation, becoming a Swift Boat officer, serving on a gunboat in the Mekong Delta in Vietnam. He received a Silver Star, Bronze Star with Combat V, and three awards of the Purple Heart for his service in combat.
What a moron.
