Chris Matthews Loses His Mind

H/T: Pundit & Pundette
This video is just depressing:



A couple of things in this clip are very wrong. First you have Rick Santorum enthusiastically declaring that he would oppose a ban on contraception and Chris Matthews completely reversing the obvious meaning of Santorum's statement.  I think a Catholic may prudentially oppose a ban on contraception, but one should not dismiss it out of hand.  If such a proposal came up in a legislature in which I was a member, I might vote "present."  As for Chris Matthews, he is either stupid or crazy.  There is no possible way an intelligent, sane human being could have interpreted Santorum's statement the way that Matthews did.

    "intelligent, sane human being" & Chris Matthews have been mutually exclusive for years. Remember, this is the same guy who gets a thrill up his leg from Obama. http://youtu.be/no9fpKVXxCc

    As for Santorum, he was wrong to say what he did. Instead, here was the perfect opportunity to explain how most contraceptives are also abortifacients & he blew it.

  2. PS He could have brought up all the other medical problems caused by artificial contraceptives as well. Don't know if O'Reilly would have let him continue, doubt it, but Santorum should have tried.

  3. O'Reilly is not to be trusted on life issues, e.g. a child in the womb is a "viable" baby. Seems like Santorum is caving now that the pressure is building, though that was expected. As for Matthews, it would be reasonable to conclude that, unlike Obama, Santorum does not induce a thrill to run up his leg.

  4. To Santorum's credit, he is at least willing to criticize contraception, which is more than one can say for a lot of Catholics, including O'Reilly and Matthews.
