Oh, Chris

I was just trying to get Chris Matthews to say something stupid -- it's been hours -- offering him up Ryan's mention that this was not a "dark hour" in America, but the "dawn before we remembered who we were."

Dark hour? Come on. That's easy.

But so far he's not jumping on my bandwagon.

So, I'll have to go back to last night's stupidities.

This is rich:

But I go back to living in DC all these years. I've lived there 40 years, a black-majority city, and anybody who wants to get up early in Washington and drive down North Capitol (Street) and drive past Florida Avenue, sees nothing but youn-, but black people up at 6:30 in the morning going to work. That's where they're going, to work, and not at big-wage jobs and not to get a welfare check, they're out working hard all day and not coming home with a fantastic paycheck. So this notion of blacks live on welfare and whites live on work is a brilliant political ploy but it's not true, Rachel (Maddow). And you know it, I know it.

Newsbusters fact-checks his claim. He doesn't live in DC; he lives in the tony white rich Maryland suburb of Chevy Chase. And:

According to census data at Maryland-Demographics.com, 1,953 people lived in Chevy Chase Village as of 2010. Of those nearly 2,000 residents, 10 were black. That's right -- ten. As in, one-half of one percent. Ninety-three percent of its residents were white, the remaining percentage other minorities.

Now if Chris Matthews intended to claim he was a good, racially tolerant guy for living in a majority-minority city, what does it say about him -- per his own syllogism -- that he actually lives in a town with only ten (ten!!!) black folks in it?

This one's for Jane D'oh. It's old by now, but worth mentioning again: Chris Matthews asked Condi Rice if her speech was a "rejoinder to all the birtherism."

It's now quite clear why Chris Matthews likes noted Conspiracy Theorist and Interuterine Detective Agency owner Andrew Sullivan so much.
