Chris Matthews was nearly apoplectic in his questioning of Tea Party Express co-founder Sal Russo on the topic of Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and her controversial re-imagining of history where the founding fathers found a way to end slavery in their lifetime. Repeatedly calling Bachmann a “balloon head,” Matthews demanded to know why Russo and the Tea Party wanted Bachmann to give a response to the State of the Union address or, more generally, why they ever wanted her to open her mouth in the first place?
Funny, but Tweety doesn’t seem to get as upset about stupid guy politicians. I wonder why that is?
I’m no fan of Bachmann or the Tea Party, but do we really want the media deciding who should represent people? If the The Partiers want Bachmann speaking for them that’s none of Tweety’s damn business.
