Chris Mathews Thinks New England Democrats are Racists

We close-minded, xenophobic, mouth-breathing christianists are used to being called racists. I wonder how our fellow New Englanders of the “progressive” variety feel when the talking heads at MSNBC lump them in with us simply because they voted for Hillary over Obama in New Hampshire? (via Michael Graham)

JOE SCARBOROUGH: What the hell happened in New Hampshire?
CHRIS MATTHEWS:“You remember the Lone Ranger and Tonto? I think paleface speak with forked tongue. You hear me? Forked tongue….
I thought this was over. I thought it ended with “macaca.”…
I thought white voters stopped being what they didn’t want to be. You know what it tells me? People aren’t proud of who they are. They aren’t proud of who they are. If they want to vote for Hillary Clinton, fine. Why don’t they say so?
SCARBOROUGH: I’m used to people saying that we in the South have problems.
MATTHEWS: Tell me about it,
SCARBOROUGH: But talk about New England.
MATTHEWS: Boston? BOSTON? [with a tone of incredulity] MATTHEWS: There’s different kind of prejudice in the North than in the South. But it exists. It may not be “I think I’m better than you,” but it might be “I don’t want to live next door to you.”

It is difficult to take seriously a commentator who drools on the air and, worse, regularly shoots off his mouth in completely the wrong direction because he has failed to do rudimentary research on his topic.

I haven’t taken Matthews seriously since his hysterical attempts to impeach Bill Clinton. He was rather late to the opposition to the Iraq War, too.
Sometimes I wish a hurricane would come along and tear off the finger he keeps up to the wind.
