is "hardball" considered a politically neutral show? i never watch it (as i've said, i don't have tv), but holy crap, i just watched the swift boats interview available at instapundit, and man, matthews was rough on that guy.

one of the several problems i have with hannity (at least on his radio show) is that he dosen't really let people (liberal people) speak their point of view, and gets them off on ridiculious tangents to obscure the real point.

what what i just watched with matthews is that a hundred times over. i mean, twisting words, cutting him off, asking stupid questions not even tangentally releveant to the point. i want to know what this guy has to say, but apparently i'll have to actually buy the book if i want to hear it, because it sure as shit ain't on msnbc.

as to the substance of the interview (what i could get, around matthew's inquisition) and the larger issue at hand...i have several thoughts, i'll put them up eventually. maybe. it's a very personal issue to me, i guess. but i feel like i know this guy that's running for president. he really reminds me so much of a certain kind of soldier, a certain kind of person.

i didn't like the people he reminds me of, either.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
