Did the President give a speech tonight? Forget about that. Glenn Beck will be all over what Chris Matthews said on MSNBC. It's so egregious that Media Matters posted it up:
I was just remarking the other day what a complete douchebag Chris Matthews is. So it goes.
If Glenn Beck said this, there would be calls for his head and his job. Let's see if there are similar calls for Matthews.
It's just as well. The State of the Union address was what is becoming typical Obama: Great speechifying, little real substance, contradictions and impossibilities within the text, and the masterful deception of making one's own messes appear to have been someone else's doing and cause for alarm/action. Seemed like a campaign speech rather than a report.
