Bush’s “appeasement” speech has been discussed in detail everywhere today, and I don’t have a unique take on it other than that he remains true to form- a jackass. I will note that whoever it was that remarked that all history for wingnuts begins and ends with Hitler has some more evidence.
I did, however, just see the speech, and I have to say it fills me with pride to watch my President be unable to pronounce the word “argument.”
Just go away, you buffoon.
*** Update ***
Matthews is hammering some guy on Hardball, and it is glorious. “What did Chamberlain do wrong?” and the guy does not know. I will have the video as soon as possible.
Matthews is hammering him- “You don’t know. You don’t know what you are talking about.”
He just ended with the statement “I gotta go to someone who knows something about history. He is as bad as the press secretary who does not know what the Cuban Missile Crisis was.”
This was, without a doubt, the finest hour for Chris Matthews. I take back everything negative I have ever said.
It is painful to watch. I love how he turns redder and redder and just yells appeaser.
