This is the sort of thing that just makes me weep for my country. From the pre-debate coverage on Hardball this Thursday evening, host Chris Matthews confronts a woman who calls President Obama a Communist and un-American. Matthews tried to get out of her just what she meant by calling him that, to no avail.

This is your brain on Fox and right-wing hate talk people. Communists, and Socialists, and Marxists... oh my! Be afraid... be very afraid.

Can you help us out?
