It Helps To Read A History Book Or Two

At least it does before you go on national cable TV, I’d think. Chris Matthews is a dick (despite my dislike for Hillary Clinton as a candidate, the sexist remarks he’s made about her are awful), but he lines up this radio guy Kevin James from KRLA fairly easily.

Look, if you’re going to defend references to appeasement and basically accusing presidential candidates of it, be sure you know how to define appeasement and what got British PM Neville Chamberlain that label. The Sudetenland! Know it, motherfucker! Wikipedia’s pretty easy to use, and in Chamberlain’s case, is pretty accurate.

(I’m trying to get some political stuff, music, and other non-sports stuff back on here occasionally. Bear with me.)

  1. Nice job with the non-sports content man. I had to read Hardball back in high school for the first political science course I took and thought Chris Matthews was sorta ok. However, what Hardball fails to touch on is Matthews generally smarmy behavior towards females, as shown in this NY Times Magazine profile from April (link below).

    This however, is hilarious because I am not even sure if Kevin James knows what appeasement even means, never mind even the basic facts of the appeasement of the Munich Agreement. Those that do not learn from the past are likely to repeat its mistakes.
