Chris Matthews -- not the sharpest tool in the shed: Monday night on MSNBC's "Hardball" program, Chris Matthews had the posed the following question to a guest in connection with the shooting of a possibly unarmed insurgent feigning death:
Well, let me ask you about this. If this were the other side, and we were watching an enemy soldier -- a rival, I mean they're not bad guys especially, just people who just disagree with us, they are in fact the insurgents, fighting us in their country -- if we saw one of them do what we saw our guy do to that guy, would we consider that worthy of a war crimes charge? [emphasis added]
How completely brain dead do you have to be to believe these people aren't "bad guys especially." They kidnap innocent people and then cut off their heads. The day after Matthews' made this idiot statement, we received word that some of these not "bad guys" had released a videotape showing them blowing Margaret Hassan's brains out. Hassan was an aid worker with CARE International who had spent 30 years of her life trying to help the Iraqi people.
These aren't "bad guys"?
Liberals like Matthews deride President Bush as some kind of simpleton when he refers to terrorists "evildoers." They are smug in their superiority that they are able to see an infinite number of shades of gray. This misguided belief is really just evidence that they have no moral compass. They cannot differentiate right from wrong. They cannot tell the difference between people fighting to create a democracy and people fighting to install an autocratic regime.
