So, what is ‘mean’ according to Mr. Matthews? Well, on his show last night he said that it was mean for Tea Party candidates (i.e. conservative Republicans) to run against moderate Republican incumbents in the primaries. Thank you, Chris for revealing the new dem talking points. I can assume that we are going to hear a lot more of this from all the other MSM. He was discussing the announcement by J. D. Hayworth that he will run against John McCain in the primaries. Their darling Republican is going to be challenged and to them that is just plain mean. He called it “a battle of meanness”. So sorry Chris. It’s not just the Dems that are going to be challenged, but your precious moderate Republicans as well. Get used to it.
