Gorillas on a Leash

Chris Matthews lets the mask slip?


Yes, we know, like a good Liberal, he “supports the military.”  But the truth is, if you’ve ever watched Planet of the Apes, that tells you all you need to know about how the likes of Chris Matthews view the military–Gorillas on a leash.  A very tight leash, and keep the shotgun within easy reach.  Because look at them wrong and you could lose an arm or something, or end up stuffed and lobotomized in some ape museum.  To the likes of Chris Matthews, our military are the “other.”

Yet how unfair.  In our over 200 year history as a country, the U.S. military has never given us a reason to fear it.  Never.  They sure do make a hell of a photo op though, don’t they!
