How Smart Are Liberals?
Matthews received the coveted "Crazy Chris Award for Chris Matthews' Left-Wing Lunacy," for the classic pseudo intellectual progressive liberal demoracist observation that anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, "sound[s] more informed than most U.S. Congress people.” He also suggested that she run for office. This award was part of the annual "Best of Notable Quotables," from Brent Bozell's Media Research Center.
We go to the criticism of the "left" to answer the question of "how smart are liberals?" Media Matters for America awarded Matthews the "Misinformer of the Year" award. Obviously out of concern for the limited intellectual capacity of knee jerk liberals they harpooned Matthews for not making clear that a guest may be a dreaded Republican while emphasizing progressive liberal guests’ credentials. Are they saying that progressive liberals have difficulty identifying who is "left" and whose "right" without help?
Even more critical to answering the question are the Media Matters for America's criticisms of some Matthew's quotes about President Bush that are taken out of context. These people are a hoot. Go read the article for yourself to answer the question and have a good laugh.
