    I think a few Progressives have given me Hell for supporting Matthews over the years, but frankly, I think his heart's in the right place, and he's a pretty good pundit most of the time. He should get some credit for being outspoken on behalf of the right side of history a bit more, IMHO.

    Vote YES on Prop. 30, California!!!! Yes on 30, No on 32 & 38. For the future of education.

      the thing that I love about Chris is his deep sense of what it means to be a patriot, to be an American - and it is not a jingoistic, flag-waving type of patriotism. It is about living up to the belief that all men (and women) are created equal and it is about the huddled masses yearning to breathe free.  Chris is in love with the deeply American story of Barack Obama.  I was especially taken during this campaign season every time Chris expressed the deep offense he took at Mitt Romney's scurrilous welfare ads.  Chris told viewers to drive around DC early in the morning and look at who was standing at the bus stops trying to get to work.  Not people waiting for welfare checks but hard working Americans who deserve some respect.
