In fairness, I know full well that Matthews is aware of what countries these respective canals reside in.
This was a mistake. People make them.
The problem is that folks like Matthews, who so desperately hate Palin and Bachmann, are hanging on their every utterance looking to pounce on anything that can be twisted and misconstrued to embarrass and defame these conservative women.
As we demonstrated last week, this is even when the comments aren’t nearly as out of line as people like Matthews claim.
