Calling Out Republican Stupidity

Is this a turning of the tide? Is the media finally going to start calling out conservative pundits, and indeed the president, for their gross stupidity? McCain's innumerable gaffes have been getting more media attention (although still not enough). And now Chris Matthews totally takes right-wing radio host Kevin James to task on his abusive ignorance of history.

Check it out.

Matthews has lost a lot of points with me lately, especially now that Hardball has adopted a garish show format that imitates all the other talking head crap out there. Seriously, there's not even a pretense of objectivity any more. It seems every news program has been replaced by some loud, opinionated, ignorant goon.

But Chris may have finally won a few points back. ...just a few.
