Right wing talking point of the day.

There’s a difference between mis-speaking, which is what Chris Matthews did here (he meant the Suez Canal, obviously), and the dim-witted stupidity of Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann.

Granted, he made a mistake. But I maintain that if this were a FOX commentator I would see the EPIC FAIL.

Sure, when Biden says something stupid it is just a simple mistake…. blah blah blah.

It just seems to me that when Chris Matthews, Bill Maher or anyone on the left says something stupid (or even racist), it is excused.

Bill Maher is a political comedian on a late-night show. He voices social stereotypes and politically incorrect things in humor and sarcasm.

I think the stereotype he might be referring to in that video of yours is the stereotype of black people being thugs. You know, where Rush Limbaugh says Obama will leave his mark on Mt. Rushmore with graffiti.

How about this Buck, go use google and look up “Barack Obongo” and get back to me.

And I know the magical balance fairy that lives in your head will never allow you to see any different, but, somehow I find speaking of a canal and calling it by the wrong name a little different than the great Sarah’s Sputnik moment… Or Bachmann’s whole speech after the State of the Union address…. That even most republicans wouldn’t back because it was full of so many logical fallacies (and no, that isn’t the same as just getting two names confused).

PIMF, that post you linked on Bill Maher I would agree was not correct. In the context of that post he’s not really being sarcastic or humorous, and it looks awfully bigoted.

I think Maher is an idiot when it comes to Islam, because he is fearful of any and all religion.. Which to me is pretty close minded. It’s coming from the far left and right (Pamela Geller).


I thought you were referring to the last video posted somewhere about Obama being a “real black man”, which is what I was commenting on.

i don’t think it’s nitpicking to expect our government’s representatives to actually understand the government and american history. i’m not a big fan of matthews but he is not a balloon-head.

Except this is a fantasy you have, and not a reality. When Helen Thomas said anti-semitic crap, it ended her career.

Beck says anti-semitic crap and supports anti-semitic authors, and the hundreds of rabbis protesting him get dismissed as Soros-funded— which is itself an anti-semitic smear.

Pary of the reason we know he misspoke is because if you go to 1:35 he actually corrects himself.
