I had initially thought to write on the content of this segment, but after sleeping on it, it occurred to me what bothered me the most about it: is it possible for Chris Matthews and Pat Buchanan to talk about Sarah Palin without sounding like they were going to need some "private time" immediately after the segment?

I'm seriously thinking about taking up a collection to get them a pair of Sarah Palin look-alike blow-up dolls and a copy of the "Nailin' Palin" porn video and spare us their verbal masturbation on air. As BlueGal joked with the team, it's easy to believe that Tweety didn't get a date in high school or college with the way he gets visibly excited talking about women politicos.

And Sarah Palin isn't alone. Little Tweety has asserted itself into conversations with or about Michelle Bachmann, Erin Burnett and Laura Ingraham as well. In fact, I'm willing to bet that some of his Hillary hate has everything to do with the fact that Hillary doesn't move him in that special thrill-up-his-leg kind of way.

Can you help us out?
