Almost lost in the ludicrous exchange in which 3 pro-abortion fanatics who consider gay marriage to be the next big battle against bigotry defending the Catholic Church against Glenn Beck, was this outburst from Chrissy “Tingly Leg” Matthews– which was embarrassing, even by his low standard.
If he keeps this up, he won’t even be a useful idiot for the Left anymore:
MATTHEWS: This guy, Barack Obama—not to get too basic about it -did everything right. He studied hard in school. He obeyed the law. He raised a family. He took care of his family. He was an excellent student. He was on the “Harvard Law Review.” He did every—he went through the democratic process. He didn‘t go out and make a lot of money on Wall Street.

That is the only way to whip up the group grope of block voting– and with the polls tanking the way they are, that is the last refuge of these scoundrels.
