chris matthews just bitchslapped (at least verbally) some crazy clinton woman in the crowd outside the arena. she started ranting about obama's madrasah etc and chris was just "what's your source" so she repeatedly said "i'm not telling"

literally

a full grown woman, foaming at the mouth over opinions she formed after reading a super convincing mystery source

Why does it have a cheesy announcer and set from a cheap game show?
Why do they have a comically sized wacky hammer?
Who all these terribly dressed fat people dancing?
Why do the democrats consider themselves to be convened under the will of God with a sacred mission?
Why can no one use the auto-cue, don't they practice these things?
By what definition is the Democratic party the oldest political party in the world?

American politics is so much more fun.

What exactly are his achievements. He sat in the senate for a hundred years. Kudo. Can he point to anything he's done that has actually significantly helped anything?
