Hardball-Hanretty-Libby (Update below:) I scour the cable news shows nearly every day and I have to say that this performance by The Hill's Karen Hanretty on this evening's "Hardball" has to rank as one of the worst and most annoying I've seen. Hanretty became highly perturbed when host Chris Matthews and Ezra Klein from The American Prospect dared to challenge her pathetic attempts to defend Scooter Libby and Alberto Gonzales.

Hanretty is so wrong on so many levels I'm not even going to attempt to address them all. Have at it in the comments, tell us what you think...

UPDATE: Digby has some transcripts and says:

If anyone wants to know why young people are running away from the GOP in droves, this is it. They are a nasty group of cynical jackasses who make the future look like a dark and hideous prospect.

You go Ezra. It was a sharp, dignified performance in response to the shrill, shrieking harpy who was snidely laughing in your face as she "clarified" exactly what the Republicans mean by "honor and integrity."

Can you help us out?
