On Wednesday's Hardball Chris Matthews talked with right wing warmonger and former U.N. Ambassador, John Bolton, and Middle East expert, Jo-Anne Hart, about a possible U.S. invasion of Iran. Matthews is normally all over the place, but in this segment he seemed to be focused and somewhat grounded in reality.

Bolton blathers on about the need to attack Iran before they achieve nuclear capability, even going so far as to say he didn't think the citizens of Iran would be angry at the U.S. if we started dropping bombs inside their country -- for which Matthews, thankfully, calls him out. When Matthews calls him a Neoconservative, Bolton points his finger at him and sternly denies it. No, Mr. Bolton isn't a Neocon -- he just thinks, talks and acts like one. It seems the term Neocon has finally become a dirty word in American society...
