Crooks and Liars: "MATTHEWS: It's all ideology with this crowd. All they care about is ideology. The President bought it, hook, line and sinker. He had but you know, it was just put into his head, some time after 9-11, and his philosophy is what he has given it. He didn't have to have any philosophy when he went in, and they handed it to him. These guys the guys you know, the guys that you used to make fun of at school pencil necks, the intellectuals, the guys you never trusted. All of the sudden, he trusts the intellectuals, the guys you knew at school, yeah, they're a bunch of pencil necks and now he buys completely their ideology, because he didn't have one of his own coming in. That was his problem. I don't know what Bush stood for, except I'm a cool guy and Gore isn't, and that was our problem. We elected the guy because he was a little cooler than the other guy, and, I hope the next election, it isn't a problem of who goes to bed with their wife at 9:30 at night, or who knows how to tell a joke on a stage. But it's who had the sense of strength that comes from having read books, most of their life, tried to understand history"May I point out that Gore actually won that election ? Maybe Matthews voted against Gore, but the majority of us voted for him. Those 5 votes cast by the Supreme Court revealed that our "democracy" doesn't honor the will of the people.
Maybe Chris Matthews voted for frat-boy Bush because of his own tendencies as a bully (his attitude toward intellectuals). I don't consider the Neo-Cons intellectuals - they're a bunch of idiots just like their "boy" George Witless Bush.
