Tweety BLASTS former Pentagon spokesperson,Torie Clark about Iraq
For those who are not abstaining from "Hardball", man, did he go off on Torie Clark tonite. He barely let her get a word in edgewise... he wnet through a litany of mistakes the Bushies- "your side" made on Iraq and getting us into the war, etc. He also blasted her about how all the people who go us into it have left the govt... it was a great rant, and shocking, coming from that source.

It was in the second half of the show. The rant occured towards the end of her segment. Worth seeing!

2. Never fear
He'll have Rumsfeld on sometime this week for a long, luxurious backrub.

What scent of massage oil is Rummy's favorite as well.

3. Did anyone make it through her interview on the Daily Show last night...
I left pretty early on in the interview. I didn't need to sit there and listen to her lie to my face. I hope Jon gave her what for later on in the interview...

of TDS last night, John didn't really hit her hard on much. But I only caught the last minute or two.

11. He wasn't too hard on her during the begining either...
but what can you do with someone who has no shame? How can you deal with someone who says that spin and misinformation cannot survive in todays media environment when: (http://www.harrisinteractive.com/harris_poll/index.asp?... )


Forty-one percent (41%) of U.S. adults believe that Saddam Hussein had "strong links to Al Qaeda."

Twenty-two percent (22%) of adults believe that Saddam Hussein "helped plan and support the hijackers who attacked the United States on September 11."

Twenty-six percent (26%) of adults believe that Iraq "had weapons of mass destruction when the U.S. invaded."

Twenty-four percent (24%) of all adults believe that "several of the hijackers who attacked the United States on September 11 were Iraqis."





To make the claims that she was making last night, she's either lying or delusional. How do you debate a shameless liar? I guess the best thing to do would be to stop having guests like her on the show.

14. actually, jon DID go off on her, albeit gently.
that's his mo and it works wonderfully well for him. he gets the point across without beating on the guests. after all, he wouldn't HAVE any guests if he continually beat on them. he has more integrity than the rw shills who ambush their guests.

28. That's true...
I guess in this case, I couldn't stomach her lies long enough for Jon to get past being dumbstruck by her aucdacity...

15. Don't Know What Got Into Him. He Framed It Incredibly And Didn't Even Let
her rebutt his last word! I was actually quite impressed. It's one of the first times I've actually seen ANY talking head on cable news actually shut down an rw tool that effectively, like hannity does to his guests.

I gotta cheer tweety on this one.

16. Quite a Rant by Chris! Even if you don't like him, it's worth watching

I was shocked. It Was Hardball...for a rare change.

18. Whichever way the wind blows. Matthews was one of the most guilty...
in the lead-up to the invasion and afterward in justifying the war.

Whichever way the wind blows, that's the direction Matthews leans.

21. For one night only Chris was a reporter. He pointed out the facts and
asked his guest to explain where he was wrong. Of course she couldn't between swallowing extremely hard and trying to fit the square Bush talking points to Chris' round pegs of truth. His cutting her off at the end was like a mercy killing of a horse with a broken leg. At the beginning of the segment she was so smug and confident she to think and make the point that the people who do her job should be given a more significant title. By the end of it I'm sure she was thinking that title should be "idiot."

22. Guess the boycott against him is making him realize, he'll never get
the Fox fundies, and he's driven away his more rational audience. He probably just didn't like her personally or something, and decided to tell the truth (which he knows well, but rarely tells) and maybe win back a few viewers ~

I saw him do that to one of the Swifties one night. I was surprised since he had given all the liars from that group such a free ride for so long. I got the impression he just didn't like the guy and went after the lies for personal satisfaction. After all, the others were lying too, but he was able to tolerate them.

I'll just continue to read about him here ~ glad he went after her, but I don't trust him or anyone on the MSM anymore ~

25. THAT was spectacular....I have it on tape somewhere
people were furious, and they didn't want to end the meeting

the local Rep., Congressman Moran was there, leading the 'insurgents' against the hapless general and the Joker-dress-alike Clark

truly a memorable evening; one which, had similar scenes been repeated nationwide, would have turned the tide against the junta

of course, it got ZERO play in the M$M

Is it OK if I call you Chief, or have you not mellowed in the years following your death?

29. scroll down to the bottom right
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3096434

someone else provided that link - I just duplicated it here.

He didn't seem very happy with her trying to spin it back to her points.
