Do They Come Any Wackier Than Mr. Thrill-Up-The-Leg?
Mr. Thrill-Up-The-Leg is Chris Matthews, of course (hat tip to Weasel Zippers):
Text below the fold.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Okay let’s talk about what the…message to a lot of the people was. The message coming out of the Tea Party people, and lot of them are good people, is every man for himself, basically. “No more taxes, no more government, no more everything. No more safety net. No more health care for everybody. Everybody just get out there, make your buck, save it, screw the government, move on.” Right?Connecting the Chilean miners with the Tea Parties is beyond ludicrous, especially in light of details about Luis Urzua, the foreman who refused to give up.
RICHARD TRUMKA: Yeah.
MATTHEWS: You know these people [the Chilean miners], if they were every man for himself down in that mine they wouldn’t have gotten out.
TRUMKA: That’s exactly right.
MATTHEWS: They would have been killing each other after about two days....
Surely, surely, Chris Matthews's viewers can see how stupid Mr. Thrill-Up-The-Leg's words are!
