Ever since MSNBC (I call it MSDNC) host Chris Matthews decided that Mr. Obama “gave him a thrill up his leg,” it’s been hard to take much of what he says seriously. However, even broken clocks are right twice a day, and it seems that Mr. Tingles got one right. He had the courage and integrity to call Arianna Huffington out on her hate-fest, that really boiled down to a rock concert, attended mostly by astroturfers who Ms. Huffington herself paid to bus to the event.

As a reminder, this is how the Left treated President Bush (oh and notice the misspelling – I thought only Conservatives were stupid):
