The author of Hardball moaning like a girl, and calling the Tea Party "thugs" and "muggers." Success has really spoiled Chris Matthews.
It's such a childish metaphor to suggest that trying to limit the government's spending of our money is like beating someone up and stealing his wallet. Of course, that's the story the real mugger who got the worst of the scuffle would give the cops, and it might work, until they examine the wallet and whose name is on the credit card. The truth is that Americans elected a mob of thieves who promised hope and change, but delivered a vision of a dreary future trying to cover the debts they have run up in our name. It's not mugging when you take your credit card back.
