You don't know what you're talking about

Don't be a spoilsport, Josh Patashnik:
It's certainly fun to watch this guy twist in the wind, but in the end it doesn't enlighten or enrich the public discourse at all.
Oh, I guess, but on the other hand it certainly is fun:

i saw this one live yesterday, and was surprised at what an ass-whupping matthews gave that silly kid. didn't know he had it in him.

instant classic -- he's literally laughing at him, which is what that chode deserves.

yah, Kevin James comes off like a douchier Perez Hilton. But where does Chris Matthews get off first being so condescending towards a guest for yelling (really?), and then using one tidbit of historical reference to berate someone over and over?

We got it -- Kevin James is an idiot! Doesn't Chris Matthews come off being more childish here? "Teacher, teacher, look what Billy did! Teacher! COME SEE! LOOK! WHY WONT YOU SEE WHAT HE DID?!!"

I wont disagree that Matthews is a pretty sharp guy, but sometimes I think he's so up his ass with his own (often irrelevant) baroque references that he comes off like a a jackass. Like when he repeatedly - over and over I mean - compared Obama and Clinton to Mozart and Salieri, respectively.

"One tidbit of historical reference"????

The guy is equating Obama's position regarding negotiating with people, even those who aren't our closest allies, with Chamberlain's appeasement of Hitler!!! Tweety (and God bless him, he doesn't get many things right) rightfully points out that the two things are not equivalent...and, oh by the way, this douchebag doesn't even know what happened in the run-up to WWII. All he can say is He was an appeaser. He was an appeaser. He was an appeaser.

I would submit to you that #1: Chamberlain's appeasement of Hitler was more than a 'tidbit' of history, and #2: one who casts the "appeasement" stone should at least know whatthef#ck he's talking about.
