Tonight on Hardball, national braintrust Chris Matthews’ ‘Politics Fix’ featured Joan Walsh of Salon.com, and Ken Vogel of the Politico. Topic of discussion was Barney Frank’s recent surreal townhall meeting on healthcare, where he berated damn near everyone who dared question him. What does Joan Walsh think? Barney is a hero to the liberal movement!
Well, bravo Joan.
Walsh continues and calls this behavior “thuggishness,” and questions why “we are treating these people like they deserve an equal place at the table.” Excuse me? ‘Deserve a seat at the table’? What about the 1st Amendment don’t you understand, Joan?
Then she says they’re falsely trying to portray themselves as regular folks, but they are really being organized by “right-wingers” like William Kostrick who, she says, is a birther and is a member of “We the People.” (*GASP!*) We the People? For SHAME, William!
Katy Abram is next up for Joan’s lunatic bat, saying she’s being portrayed as some kind of ordinary housewife, but she’s really a “leader” of the “9/12 Movement, which is Glenn Beck‘s right-wing insane movement!” (*DOUBLE GASP!*) She even congratulates Lawrence O’Donnell for doing a “good job” on her a couple of nights ago.
