mtp-matalin-pen.jpgcarville.jpg (thanks to Scarce for pictures) On this morning's Meet The Press, Senior Cheney apologist and right wing sniper, Mary Matalin, threw a little hissy fit at Bob Shrum on the issue of Iraq and the upcoming presidential election. As Shrum continually smacks down her spin, Matalin becomes increasingly perturbed and at the end of the segment as Mike Murphy was getting in some right wing spin of his own, she chucks her pen across the table in front of him, noticeably drawing his attention and making a loud noise as it bounced across the table and onto the floor.

The strain of an imploding Republican Party is have an obvious effect. The quote below is what set her off, and whether you agree with Shrum 100% on it or not, he smacked her down and pushed her over the edge.

Matalin: "There's only 25% of the Democrats think that we should immediately withdraw."

Shrum: "I didn't say immediately withdraw. That's another - now that's another - that's a perfect Cheneyism. I didn't say immediately withdraw, I said they thought we should withdraw over a year to year and a half."
