After Chris Matthews shows a clip of his buddy St. McCain saying he doesn't want the United States to become a Banana Republic, Jonathan Turley attempts to inject some sanity into the conversation with Chris Matthews and Pat Buchanan. Turley explains why McCain's statements about being a Banana Republic are wrong and why we should not be condoning torture. I'm sure he would have done a better job if given more of a chance to speak. Is it possible for either Chris Matthews or Pat Buchanan to ever allow someone complete a sentence without interrupting them?
