Is Chris Matthews losing his mind?

Is it just me, or have you noticed that Chris Matthews's mind is deteriorating fast?

Take a look at his pigheaded, and ahistorical grilling of Elizabeth Warren, blaming Obama and Democrats for the unprecedented obstruction they've faced since Obama came into office.  Then go listen to his ridiculously simplistic comments on the Bergdahl situation and you will start to see what I'm saying.

This guy needs to retire. He's clearly losing his mind if he ever had one.

Just Who are the Real Perverts?

As I type this I'm watching "The Big Picture" show on Friday, June 27th and just a moment ago one of Thom's conservative guests on the "politics panel" said that she is more concerned that her children might see two men hug than she is with having to walk through a crowd of men armed with assault rifles to get into a Target store.  Now I ask you: just who's the pervert -- a couple of people who love each other showing affection or a person who thinks that a group of men putting on a display of their ability to commit mass murder is less offensive than a display of affection?&

John Boehner's friends and colleagues apparently need to sit him down and do an intervention.  Surely a mind clouded by cigarettes and booze can be the only explanation for the phantasmagorical meanderings of his reasoning ability.  House Speaker Boehner actually believes he has a case to sue the Executive: 

Coup d’état and Assassination Plan Unveiled in Venezuela -- (including US complicity)

This morning on Thom's radio show he had a very interesting conversation with Dana Frank, professor of History at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and the author of Bananeras: Women Transforming the Banana Unions of Latin America, About what is actually behind the flood of child immigrants from Central America coming across the US southern border.  Apropos of what she had to say about the US being complicit or even directly responsible for much of the violence that's driving the migration I think this document is quite interesting though I cannot vouch
