This will also be a daily thread, for those of you who love news and politics like I do. Talk about whatever you want, leave a link to a story, or just check out what others are thinking about.
I’ll start it off.
Last night I watched the Romney speech. Not too bad. I thought he did pretty well. Then, just for laughs, we flipped over to listen to MSNBC.
Chris (yes I am a lapdog masquerading as a journalist) Matthews provided the comedy. It was like he watched a completely different speech than I did.
“MSNBC’s Chris Matthews didn’t even wait for the balloons and the confetti to stop falling before laying into Mitt Romney. Moments after the former Massachusetts governor finished his Thursday night speech at the Republican National Convention, Matthews slammed the supposedly “very dark, very jingoistic, very anti-scientific, and, really, Know-Nothing” elements of the address.
The left-wing host concluded that “on science, on war and peace…I personally think this was a bad address for the American people.” Matthews later went on a tear on how Romney was apparently “narrow-minded…small and insular and piggish…to say, we don’t care about the planet we live on, which is getting hotter.””
