I’ll take geo-political history for 500, Chris

This segment on last night’s MSNBC Hardball is one of the things I most dislike about cable news (yes, I did watch it).

“Chris Matthews, convinced that LA radio talk show guy Kevin James wasn’t real strong in his knowledge of geo-political history, asking James if he knew what Neville Chamberlain did at Munich in 1938. If you answered, “He signed the Munich Agreement, conceding a portion of Czechoslovakia to the Nazi regime,” you are right. If you answered, “He talked to Hitler, and caused 9/11 to happen, just like Barack Hussein bin Laden wants to!” then you are Kevin James.”

When did it become okay to just shout the other guy down? No wonder the rest of the world thinks were a bunch of assholes.

  1. Well I’m not convinced the rest of the world thinks we’re a bunch of assholes, but it would be hard to imagine they wouldn’t think this Kevin James character is one. Man I guess we really don’t do a very good job teaching history. This reminds me of a friend of mine who after graduating from a military high school, and midway through college, was not aware the Russians were our allies in WWII.
