When you don’t know what to do, change the subject. Find a scapegoat. Demonize somebody.
That’s been a tried and true tactic for despots and demagogues through the ages and Chris Matthews’ Leg is thrilled to see that Chris, Keith and Rachel got the talking points memo from Rahm Emanuel about diverting attention from the devastating effects of the Pelosi-Reid-Obama TARPorkalypse.
The unexpected bonus for The Leg was seeing RNC chairman Micheal Steele stumble into the trap–inexplicably allowing Rush to be the topic instead of turning the tables and pointing to the staggering hypocrisy of liberals crying about a politically biased voice in the media.
Keith and Chris got some rich guffaws out of that one.
