ProTip For Chris Matthews: Scott Walker IS The Right Wing

What planet has Tweety been on for the past five years?

During a segment on Hardball Wednesday, Chris Matthews ran a series of right-wing freakout statements about President Obama's decision to reopen the embassy in Cuba. The Rubio/Cruz statements were predictable, Jeb Bush's statement was bland, and Scott Walker's was crafted for the warmongering nativist right wing.

"President Obama’s decision to establish full diplomatic relations with Cuba and open an embassy there is yet another example of his appeasement of dictators," Walker wrote.

Why this would shock Tweety, I will never know, but it did.

"I'm starting to lose faith in Scott Walker as a reasonable person," Tweety lamented. "He's aping the right wing."

Uh. No, Chris. He IS the right wing. He isn't a reasonable person, he's governed Wisconsin like a banana republic dictator, and he's a wholly owned subsidiary of Koch Industries.

Maybe we need to start sending him Capper's posts to bring him up to speed.
