IF YOU'RE HAPPY AND YOU KNOW IT, CLAP YOUR HANDS

IF YOU’RE HAPPY AND YOU KNOW IT, CLAP YOUR HANDS

Chris Matthews should re-name Hardball “Herball.” Night after night, Matthews’ Hillary fixation gets more and more ridiculous and blatantly psychotic. It’s Hillary’s laugh. It’s Hillary’s husband. It’s Hillary’s gender card. It’s Hillary’s dynamic with Barack…John…her parsing…her cleavage in the Senate…her treatment—boohoo—of Tim Russert. Geeze. Could Chris be more obvious about his castration fear disorder? Truth be told, many of us have fears about Hillary but let’s not go nuts—pun intended.

Tonight, for instance, Matthews, known in some corners of the blogosphere as Tweety, had yet another segment on Hillary—there’s a shocker—in which he prompted his “round table” to analyze why the dame doth clap so much at her rallies. I KID YOU NOT.

Meanwhile, there’s tons of other news, say, about:

A. Iraq
B. Iran
C. Pakistan
D. Afghanistan
E. Rudy’s Scary Resemblance to Nosferatu
F. All of the Above

I’m going with F—All of the Above.

Rest assured: if you do the MSNBC thing on weeknights, you will quickly learn that what once—in a mainstream galaxy far, far away—was known as “Hardball” has suddenly morphed into “Herball.” It seems that things, including serious news segments, aren’t as, well, hard as they should be.

Ain't it the truth. With the many issues and positions she has taken that could make for informative analysis and viewing for the voters, they attack her for being a "her". I keep expecting one of these low-brow pundits to ask her to share a cookie recipe, some knitting tips, or something equally stereotypical (my apologies if i offended cookie bakers and knitters, but you know what I mean). It is that bad.

I doubt they have even hit the lowest of their lows yet, as this cycle is really only starting now and even though they have covered Bill extensively on this topic, they have yet to really get in depth on her sex life. Because that is what is really important. Forget the issues.

That picture really captures the spirit of Rudy...

As a side note: There is a series of posts called "Time to End the Educational Apartheid Gap–An In Depth Equity Investigation" that I thought some of your contributors and readers might be interested in. It's a 3 part series on it, so you'll have to scroll down to part one. I am pretty certain you will be familiar with some of these issues.
