Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Chris Matthews recently introduced a new segment to his MSNBC show titled, “Let Me Finish”. It’s a 2:30 minute editorial. Last evening’s segment was on the increasing propensity of Republican politicians to advocate for nullification and bandy the notion of secessionism.

Typically these engagements are debated on conservative terms, their advocacy for states rights and local control while their opponents argue weakly regarding the quaintness of such arguments without even leveraging the killer rebuttal. This was exactly how Matthews started so I reacted with the normal gut twitches about how moronic liberals were in failing to go for the jugular when it was staring them in the face. However he was baiting us and probably the ‘states rights’ advocates as well, all twelve of them who watch his show; his finish was masterful.
