Chris Matthews: "Suppose -- hypothetically, mind you-- that America were a 'good country'"

Matthews is in a hole of leftist moral equivalency but darnit, he just keeps on digging, doesn't he? From the Nov. 16th Hardball:

MATTHEWS: What is bin Laden's motive? Why does he want to kill us?

SCHEUER: His motive is, uh, to change our policies, sir. Uhhh, notwithstanding what the president or Mr. Kerry said during the campaign, he really doesn't give a darn about our democracy or our society --

MATTHEWS (Interrupts): Right.

SCHEUER: He's after a change in policies which he views as lethal to Muslims --

MATTHEWS (Interrupts): Does he think, for example, let me try this -- and I don't want to sound like an apologist -- but suppose we had truly an evenhanded policy in the Middle East. Suppose there was a Palestinian entity of some kind, and it had reasonable borders, and it was contiguous enough to be a working state, and we didn't back dictators like the Saudi Royal Family and people like that who are simply selling the oil to keep their fingers filled with rings and girlfriends in London, all right? Suppose we were a good country and an evenhanded country, all right? Would that make it any less hostile to us?

SCHEUER: We are a good country, sir.

Emphasis added.

Kinda sad when this idiot Scheuer has to slap down your Chomskyite anti-Americanism.

Thanks to LauraW.

I think we can safely say that with Matthews and Olbermann providing an uninterrupted two-hour block of Michael Moore leftism that MSNBC has pretty much decided its only good play is to become the lefty Fox.

Update: Secure Liberty has links and observations. This is being widely noticed-- Hugh Hewitt and Laura Ingraham are on it.

I think I read that Limbaugh was on it the other day, too.

Methinks She Doth Protest Too Much Update: LauraW likes this bit especially:

"I don't want to sound like an apologist..."

Too late.

Let us sum up:

1) "This isn't about money" = This is TOTALLY about money

2) "I like you too much to date you" = I find you approximately as attractive as junebug with "problem backhair"

3) "The check is in the mail" = Not only do I not intend to pay you -- ever -- but I've been thinking about coming down to your office at night and setting it on fire, just to be a prick

4) "I was speaking ironically" = I meant every word I said, but I'm too cowardly to admit that, especially if it might hurt my precious career

and:

5) "I don't want to sound like an apologist" = I am a total tool of a hump of an appeasing apologist
