Chris Matthews apparently missed Rove's memo because he came down hard on the leadership of the Republican party today on MSNBC.

Matthews: When you think of the Capitol right now and we're looking at it, you think about the stink in that place right now and you want to fumigate it.

Christy Hardin Smith:

Matthews, who was Tip O'Neill's Chief of Staff back in the day then went on to say that, in his experience, the Speaker's staff's job is to be the eyes and ears for the Speaker to bring to him just this sort of information, to protect the integrity of the Speaker's office, the House and the party, and that he finds it very unlikely and unusual that Hastert would not have been told about Foley the moment anyone on his staff had any inkling of a problem. Matthews then said something to the effect of "there must be some good reason that those staffers kept that information from Denny Hastert IF they even did so and we aren't going to find out what that is until they get them under oath." The Foley mess is not going away any time soonread on
