Damnit, Chris Mathews was Wrong

And after I apologized to him.

This bullshit began when oppo researchers quickly dug up a picture of Palin wearing a Buchanan button. From that, Matthews concluded that she was a Pitchfork Pat torch-bearer.

Not so.

The entire case is based on a 1999 AP article, which described her as "sporting a Buchanan button" at a Buchanan visit to the town of which she was mayor.

She promptly responded to the story in a letter to the editor, that "the article may have left your readers with the perception that I am endorsing this candidate, as opposed to welcoming his visit to Wasilla. As mayor, I will welcome all the candidates in Wasilla."

And from that came Chris Matthews' spittle-spraying attack.

Straight from Media Matters or DNC oppo researchers (but I repeat myself) to national telecast, no fact-checking required.

I wonder if Matthews will retract. I sort of doubt it.

And guess what? Despite the fact this has already been debunked, I am 99.99% sure it will play prominently on Meltdown with Keith Mattthews in ten minutes.

He already knows it's been knocked down; he doesn't care. He'll run it, then later claim he didn't know it had been debunked.

Thanks to Hot Air.

Straight from Kos to MSNBC: With only Keith Olbermann as the middleman.

Why not just read DKos directly over the airwaves?
