“The use of the word ‘regime’ in American political parlance is unacceptable…”
Chris Matthews’s tingly leg isn’t his only anatomical hotspot. His mouth also frequently gets him into trouble. Recently, he complained about Rush Limbaugh using the word ‘regime’ in reference to the Obama administration. He went on to ask NBC’s Chuck Todd, “I never heard the word ‘regime,’ before, have you? I don’t even think Joe McCarthy ever called this government a ‘regime.’”
Perhaps Chris’s memory is faulty, too. During the last administration, Matthews said, “Reverend Sharpton, what do you make of this letter and this panoply of the left condemning the Bush regime?”
Moral: Do as I say, not as I do.
