Eight days after making a fool of himself on Jeopardy!, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was back to impugning the intellectual capacity of Sarah Palin.
After playing a clip of the former Alaska governor discussing why she wanted John McCain to focus on Barack Obama’s connection to the America-hating Reverend Jeremiah Wright in the 2008 campaign, Matthews mocked Tuesday, “I think her briefing papers have the weight of a comic book” (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
Please, I think we all know that Palin is smarter than Crazy Legs any day. And I think we can agree that Matthews new theme song should be
That would be one Thoma Friedman, who, out of one side of his mouth lectures us that we must work less and own less in order to save the planet because the “world is full” and at the same time lives the life of the super rich! Doug Powers, blogging at Michelle’s blog exposes Friedman for what he is
There’s a common thread among many of the people who demand that everybody else do without: They tend to have a lot more than the people they’re asking to own less — which is why the following items come as complete non-surprises: Friedman’s wife is the heir to the shopping mall fortune of one of America’swealthiest families (safe bet they don’t all live ineco houses). As for the more relevant issue of Friedman himself, if the world is too full, maybe it’s because he’s taking uptoo much space:
Newsbusterspoints out that the July 2006 issue of Washingtonian magazine called Friedman’s home “a palatial 11,400-square-foot house, now valued at $9.3 million, on a 7.5-acre parcel…”
Between Thomas Friedman and Al Gore, if they’d let some of us greenhouse gas-spewing eco-unfriendly serfs spill over into their sprawling carbon footprints, maybe the earth wouldn’t be so full
Marxists, and Leftist elites like Friedmanlove to lecture, the love to paint themselves as crusaders for “social justice” or “economic justice”, or “environmental justice”. They demand that everyone else live by the standards that the Thomas Friedman’s of the world set. Standards that, they, of course, are exempt from

It’s a good thing she was talking about white men or this would be racist. Unfortunately, we’re talking about Earth here. Mika Brzezinski on Morning Joe today demanded, “Rich white men need to contribute more to the budget solution.” NewsBusters reported on this MSNBC exchange:
JOE SCARBOROUGH: Let me say this very clearly – it is middle-class entitlements that are going to bankrupt this country if we don’t slow it down. Why? Because of course, nobody wants to stand up and do what’s responsible to middle class entitlements, because elderly middle-class Americans vote in massive proportions.
MIKA BRZEZINSKI: I just don’t see why with top earners doing better than ever, why they can’t be a part of this equation. I’m sorry, it would just be a lot easier to swallow. And if you looked at the New York Times yesterday, and you saw the top 30 earners, and how much money they are making all over again, including some of the people who drove us into the ditch – all white men, by the way, just one woman – and I didn’t see any African-Americans – I think we have a problem that we need to address as a society.
Sorry, and I agree with everything you have to say –
SCARBOROUGH: White men?
BRZEZINSKI: But we need to balance things out. (Crosstalk) And you’re going to have class warfare on its worst level.
Mika, Mika, Mika! I need another laugh or two after reading the stupidity spewed by Mika!
Barack Obama’s tax compromise victory has got tingles running back up Chris Matthews’ leg.
After showing a clip of the President at Friday’s bill signing, the “Hardball” host raved to guests Eugene Robinson and Howard Fineman about the Commander-in-Chief’s “cute smile we all love…That wonderful, boyish smile”
