Hardball hasn't been on my required watching list since the 2000 Florida election mess. I briefly caught Michelle Malkin on the show, and how Chris Matthews laid into her. I especially liked Matthews' false piusness when he said, "We are going to keep things clean on this show. No irresponsible comments are going to be made on the show."
Matthews also did a fine job twisting up Larry Thurlow with process questions about the Bush campaign Thurlow would know nothing about. He barely addressed Thurlow's claims about Kerry.
