When asked her opinion of the winners and losers of the final GOP debate in Iowa before the Iowa caucus, Rachel picked surprise upset Alan Keyes for at least having the intellectual honesty of displaying just how crazy the Republican platform is without all the euphemisms to make it palatable.

I don't think host Chris Matthews appreciated Rachel's sense of humor all that much:

You are causing trouble here. Because you are… I would like to put you on…I would like to waterboard you right now, because there’s no way on God’s earth you believe that.

Oh, Tweety, has it really come to this?? Now waterboarding is a joke to threaten guests with whom you disagree?

Can you help us out?
