Chris Van Winkle

Russ Vaughn
Did Chris Matthews just wake up from a thirty-plus year snooze in the Catskills? This video of his interview with Jim Cramer is surreal at best and bizarre at worst. Where the hell has this spokesman for the Left been for the past thirty or forty years?

Right wing dictators in Portugal, Spain and Greece? Let's see here now, António de Oliveira Salazar, infamous dictator of Portugal has been pushing up grapevines since 1968; his neighbor, Francisco Franco, Spanish dictator, ceded power in 1974 to King Juan Carlos and as for Greece, those notorious colonels have also been out of power since 1974.

So who does Chris Van Winkle try to blame for the Greek financial meltdown in 2009? You got it, Bubba; ol' Chris, pre-eminent network historian and political guru to countless leftists around the nation tells Cramer that all these out-of-control welfare policies that have sent Greece spiraling down the drain recently are the work of non-other than all these rightwing boogie men long since dead and replaced by a series of socialist politicians who have handed the public service unions the keys to the treasury.

Hola, Chris! What you been smokin' dude? If Italy turns turtle, you gonna malign Mussolini? Ethiopia's not doing well either, so whaddaya think, Chrissie? Think we oughta haul up Haile Selassie and drag his bones though the streets of Addis Ababa?

As many of us have long been aware, Matthews is a fraud and a lightweight who's made it this far on a big mouth, bluster and bird brains. I'm Irish so I can say it: he's an over-rated, dummie who slid into success on the coat-tails of Tip O'Neill. If this is the best that MSPMS can provide in the way of intelligent programming, they're headed right out the same alley door as Newsweek and their declining ratings would seem to make me a more reliable oracle than Matthews. What is truly amazing to me is that the left actually does consider this out-of-touch moron one of their oracles. And they're supposed to be the intellectuals? It figures.

Oh, and Cramer, you wuss, you didn't call him on it, which makes you look just as stupid as Matthews. As an investor who listens to you occasionally, I really do not want to believe that you are truly as clueless as Chrissie.
