Blank Slate

As you watch this clip, keep in mind that the right-wing radio host being eviscerated by Chris Matthews isn't from some low-power station in Eunice, Louisiana or Hopkinsville, Kentucky. This clown has a radio talk show in Los Angeles, CA, the second-largest media market in this country.

MATTHEWS: You don’t know what you’re talking about, Kevin. You don’t know what you’re talking about. Tell me what Chamberlain did wrong.

JAMES: Neville Chamberlain was an appeaser, Chris. Neville Chamberlain was an appeaser, all right? […]

MATTHEWS: I’ve been sitting here five minutes asking you to say what the president was referring to in 1938 at Munich.

JAMES: I don’t know.

MATTHEWS: You don’t know, thank you.
Not only did Mr. James not have any idea what Neville Chamberlain did to earn his infamous place in history, but I'll bet that if Matthews had asked what the word "appeasement" means, he would have come up blank.

What understanding of the world could anyone possibly gain from listening to this man?
