You have probably seen this like ten times by now, where Chris Matthews says Obama went into “the enemy camp” (the White Army) to deliver his speech last night. Shockingly, this pissed off no one more than National Review‘s Kathryn Jean “Jonah Goldberg” Lopez, who declared this moment MSNBC’s “new shameful low” and added, “Chris, he’s commander-in-chief.” What is she THINKING! K-Lo, you’re K-Lo. Hopefully the millions of hateful wingnut e-mails she’s received for uttering this lie will straighten her out. Meanwhile, Meghan McCain had a different reaction.

The world’s most accurate interpretive mind, on fine display:

Meghan jesus christ. Dumb Chris Matthews wasn’t declaring the U.S. Army to be his enemy. Even *K-Lo* had the capacity to complete this kindergarten-level puzzle. Although too bad, because it would’ve be funny if Chris Matthews did mean this and was forced to fight the entire U.S. Army in a gauntlet match.

  1. He actually apologised for saying that later in the show, but said something like “but you know what I meant”. Obviously some people didn’t.

    What I want him to apologise for is for asking guests why they say Cheney as “Chay-knee” instead of “Chee-knee”. YOU INVITED THEM ON YOUR SHOW FOR A REASON, ASK THEM A REAL QUESTION, DAMNIT!

  2. A Harvard professor and an ultrasecret society of the Vatican, led by a rogue cardinal with plans of becoming pope, race to uncover the lost secrets of Atlantis.

    Meghan knows the lost secrets of Atlantis. And she hasn’t gone rogue. I’m just saying.

  3. I like her use of “jackass”. He’s a little goofy and apparently obsessed with comparing everything to the plots of old movies. One day I wanna see someone show up wearing a face shield for spittle protection.

  4. Have you ever noticed that Chris Matthews has the same sweaty, panicky, frothing at the mouth, bug-eyed look as Chris Farley? Please, dear jeebus, DO NOT make us look at Chris Matthews in a Chipendale’s costume!

  5. Obama said ‘four hundred and twenty’ last night, on the TVs which Time Magazine wrote as ‘420’ in their transcript and for some reason the interwebtubezes isn’t all atwitter about that.

  6. POTUS Obama should have kept on that guy POTUS Bush hired to hold up “Clap or be sent to Iraq and/or Afghanistan” sign. That’s the funny thing about hiring and firing decisions, people you thought were completely useless turn out to be key in certain situations.

  7. I pine for the days when a tee vee talking head who said something this stupid was summarily fired.

    Matthews has diarrhea of the mouth and mind. I don’t like Olbermann, either, but at least I can watch his show without wanting to kick the screen in.

    BTW, I’m a die-hard leftie, genuine veteran of 60’s radicalism, etc etc. I hate the stupid, though, even if it’s supposedly from my side of the political/cultural wars.

  8. [re=470346]comicbookguy[/re]: “This one time, at enemy camp…”

    [re=470367]Oldskool[/re]: I prefer to refer to him by his stage name, “Kanye West Point”.

  9. [re=470381]germansteel[/re]: I disagree with you on two counts. First, I don’t really think Chris Matthews qualifies as being “on our side.”
    2nd, I don’t think what he said was completely stupid. When he said “you all know what I meant,” that was reasonably accurate, as long as ‘you all’ doesn’t include Meghan McCain. I think he was wrong because it seems Barry was actually well received and is actually quite well liked by the military, but it wasn’t stupid.

  10. I thought the White Army was defeated by the Reds back in 1920 or something. You Leninists or Dr. Zhivago fans out there in Wonkette land, help a comrade please?

  11. [re=470398]gurukalehuru[/re]:

    A tee vee commentator who has to qualify his choice of words with “you know what I meant” is stupid. His stock in trade are his words. Referring to West Point as the “enemy camp” is inane on any level.

  12. Does anyone here actually know Mecant McKeg? Can anyone tell her to stop messaging on Twitter, to stop posting anything on the internet, to stop appearing on television, and to shut the hell up? A bit of tough love is needed, as she’s nothing but an idiot and a moron.

  13. You’ve got to hand it to Barry. The man is a political genius.
    The right is split between “Yes! Yes! More War! Yes!” and “The complexionally challenged evil socialist muslin acorn worshipper is for it, so I’m agin it.”
    Split right down the fucking middle.

  14. [re=470406]germansteel[/re]: “The enemy camp” as political metaphor, like that time he participated in the totally rigged debate at that mega-church, I forgot the pastor’s name.
    Really, if the reptilian-Americans weren’t so intent on finding something to scream about,that would have passed almost unnoticed.

  15. Geez Tweety, maybe the room full of twenty-year-old kids didn’t seem overly warm because they are wondering which of them will get blown the fuck up in Afghanistan sometime in the next few years and they’re a little, oh, apprehensive about it. You dumb fat sack of crap.

  16. Umm, hey Ken, what’s up with the subtle change in the “desert red” (aka PINK) background on the page here? It makes my little icon feel a little more…exposed. A little more obvious.

  17. Fact of the Day:

    Did you know that Chris Matthews is personally responsible for 99.9% of the use of the term ‘ethnic’ in the 21st century?

    …and now you know.

  18. Isn’t it clear that by “enemy camp”, Matthews was merely suggesting that usually to get into West Point one must row in the back via canoe disguised as a pretty townie girl, start a food fight in the dining hall and then spy on the counselors making out in the shower? Whereas our Commander in Chief just walked right in the front door!

  19. Matthews knows the military mindset so well, as a result of his many tours of duty. Along with the many times he hired military anal-yst Jeff Gannon to fuck him in the dumper.

  20. Chris was actually channeling Dwight (from the Office)

    “West Point is a friend to Paul Wolfowitz. Paul Wolfowitz is an enemy of Obama. A friend of my enemy is my enemy. But Paul Wolfowitz is also his own worst enemy, and an enemy of my enemy is my friend. But…”

  21. [re=470497]peeno nwar[/re]: Given Meg’s parentage, you might want to be careful what you wish for. If she takes after her mom, it could be binge and purge time for you, mofo.

  22. [re=470381]germansteel[/re]: If Chris Matthews is on my/our/lefty side, I think the lines need to be redrawn. Do you remember how hard he jacked off to images of commander codpiece?

  23. John Sidney McCain (Navy, Class of ’58, Ranking: 894 of 899) was not offended by Tweet’s calling that infernal place on the Hudson, in Orange Co., NY as “the enemy camp”, obvs…

  24. [re=470497]peeno nwar[/re]: You say that now. But wait until Megger’s column in teh Beast in which she bitches that you made her spit of your Purity of Essence. Pig.

    [re=470384]grevillea[/re]: I feel a thrill going up my junk.

  25. [re=470344]iwillsavethispatient[/re]: Isn’t that the current meme, courtesy of FUXNews?

    Say shit off the top of yer head, right up front, and hours/days later sheepishly non-apologize ’cause everybody really knew whatcha meant…Limpballs, Palin, Billo…

  26. [re=470571]S.Luggo[/re]: Is it me or is da Beast but a slight-right-o-centre HuffPost?

    I am waiting for Joe the Plumber (not his real name or job) to comment so we can party like itz 2008…

  27. [re=470462]iburl[/re]: If that’s a KiTh reference I thought it was “Its a Fact” (then that great bass line by Shadowy Men From a Shadowy Planet)

  28. [re=470525]Advocatus_Diaboli[/re]: “Do you remember how hard he jacked off to images of commander codpiece?”

    ummm…do you remember when he literally admitted that he was in the midst of working up a raging hard-on for then candidate Obama? He’s bi-polar and bi-curious. I think it’s silly to try and say that Matthews isn’t often a devoted fan-boy of this current president.

  29. Would it be controversial for an Obama visit to Mississippi or Oklahoma to be called “going into enemy territory”? Let’s be real–Obama got an even lower percentage of the military vote than he won in Mississippi, or even Oklahoma.

  30. [re=470471]Cicada[/re]:

    And remember, at the Inauguration, the Reverend McDickcheese bidding us all to pray and whatnot, and saying “Sasha and Malia” like he was auditioning to do voice-ovefr for The Lion King? Wasn’t that fun?
