TUBE TIME

Lie of the night

Chris Matthews surprised me again last night on "Hardball" when he pounded Sr. Political Strategist Mathew Dowd for the Bush-Cheney campaign over a doctored clip that is appearing on the GOP website. The clip tries to show John Kerry saying that he is an anti-war president which the President is using in his speeches. Full Video on Hardball interview. Matthews was incensed that the GOP took the clip from his own interview with Senator Kerry 220 days ago and in its full context, Senator Kerry said the opposite. Dowd could only ignore the facts that were in front of him and tried to justify the lie. Matthews told him that they should take the clip off the GOP website and tell the President the truth. Way to go, Chris. You get four stars **** for exposing a lie.
