Great Moments in Punditry


This afternoon on MSNBC's Hardball Chris Matthews absolutely humiliated rightwing radio host Kevin James. James was there to discuss the fact that in Israel today Bush called Obama a Nazi appeaser, but the conversation quickly devolved when it became readily apparent that James didn't know what appeasment is, or the historical analogy that Bush was making.

Now, countless pundits don't know what they're talking about on any given day (see Buchannan, Pat), but they're usually clever enough to talk their way out of it! Not poor Kevin! He apparently felt that what he lacked in knowledge he could compensate for with volume. He was mistaken.

It was truely an epic fail. The funniest part was the expressions on Matthews face, alternately disbelief, frustration, anger, and amusement, all at the expense of that poor pathetic wingnut.

After Matthews gets James to admit that he doesn't know what he's talking about, James falls back on the wingnut classic that terrorism is all Bill Clinton's fault. His source?

Why The Path to 9/11 of course!
