Chris Matthews, Begone

There is a boycott brewing over NBC's loudmouth commentator, Chris Matthews, host of "Hardball," who has lately been comparing Michael Moore to Osama bin Laden and cracking fag jokes on a right-wing radio show about "Brokeback Mountain," in between giving oratorical blow-jobs to our demented Commander-in-Chief. I've never been able to watch his TV show, or any of the cable TV news channels for that matter, without getting physically ill, but there are a number of people who have stronger stomachs than me who have decided enough is enough. Chris has stepped over the line, Dr. Laura Schlesinger style.

If you happen to use Intuit (Turbo Tax software makers), Verizon cell phone service, or are considering driving a Toyota, you might want to express your displeasure with their sponsorship of Mr. Matthews' show. Go to this website here, and there is plenty of contact information for you to do just that. I've despised Mr. Matthews ever since reading him for years as the Washington, DC correspondent for the Hearst-owned San Francisco Examiner during the 1990s. He started off years ago as an aide to the corrupt old Democratic pol, Tip O'Neill, and over the years Matthews has essentially became Pat Buchanan with a liberal figleaf.

Well, the figleaf is gone, and it's time to point our fingers at his inadequacies. Please join me.

Ha, I hate to say it, but I think this counts as slander against Pat Buchanan: in the current political climate, at least Buchanan comes off as an old-fashioned fiscally conservative isolationist. I'll take that version of 'the right' over our current troop of wastrel imperial adventurers any day.

Great picture of the reflected orchestra in your last post, by the way.

Dear Trevor: I hate to say it, but I agree with you vis a vis Buchanan and Matthews. And thanks for the kind words.
