A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Chris Matthews' big problem: MSNBC show host Chris Matthews spoke at the University of Toronto and revealed to everyone the amoral world in which he lives.

"The period between 9/11 and Iraq was not a good time for America. There wasn't a robust discussion of what we were doing," Matthews said.

"If we stop trying to figure out the other side, we've given up. The person on the other side is not evil -- they just have a different perspective."

That's right. Hijacking airliners and flying them into buildings killing thousands of innocent people isn't evil, it's just misunderstood.

If you're unable to recognize that there is such a thing as evil in the world, then you're a morally bankrupt enabler.

Osama bin Laden is not misunderstood; he is evil.

And Matthews blamed Israel for the Iraq war!

How do we go about getting this scumbag fired? His show is so lowly rated, he would be no loss to MSNBC, anyway.

The liberals would be sick, though. The chief arena for their conspiracies would dry up.
Ever since the Libby indictment Matthews has been on a crusade to convince his on-air guests that Cheney has been behind some big conspiracy to out Valerie Plame. Whenever a guest counters that the Valerie Plame outing was actually incidental to the normal Washington game of political hardball that the whole Joe Wilson thing truly is about, Matthews audibly groans. He can't accept that there was likley no grand conspiracy about Wilson and his wife. It's driving him crazy.
I'm no friend of Matthews. In fact, since he flipped out on Michelle Malkin last year, I immediately switch channels when I (1) see his fat face and/or (2) hear his screechy voice and/or (3) see the word "Hardball" on the screen. If he had any professional pride, he would have been too ashamed to put his face in front of a camera again.

It seems to me, however, that you are misinterpreting his remarks here. I think "the other side" refers to the other side of the political divide in America; that is, Republicans being "the other side" from Democrats, and Democrats "the other side" from Republicans.

I could be mistaken, but that's how it reads to me. And there are plenty of things to beat up Matthews over; there's no reason to make up any.
