When Mother Jones writer David Corn tried to defend Connecticut's Democratic Senatorial candidate Richard Blumenthal's lies about his military service, MSNBC's Chis Matthews would have none of it:
However, the incident's irony isn't lost to Noel Sheppard of NewsBusters:
With little exception, Matthews is and has been a shill for Democrat candidates throughout his career. Never has this been more disgracefully apparent than in February 2008 when he claimed on the air that Barack Obama gave him a thrill up his leg.
Complicating matters further is the indisputable fact that the entire network Matthews works for is completely in the tank for left-leaning candidates and isn't at all ashamed to say so.
As such, Matthews chastising a guest for what he and all of his fellow colleagues do on a regular basis is akin to Claude Rains being shocked to find gambling going on in Humphrey Bogart's Casablanca casino.
