Tonight on “Hardball” Chris Matthews had a discussion with three other MSNBC hosts: Joe Scarborough, Tucker Carlson, and Rita Cosby. Issues covered include an upcoming Supreme Court ruling on abortion and attempts by the Republican Party to get its hands on church-membership lists.

Joe Scarborough is a conservative; Tucker Carlson is a conservative; Rita Cosby I can’t tell; Chris Matthews swings wildly to the left-and-to-the-right from show-to-show.

Not one known liberal on the panel.

« Update Later Same Evening: Rita Cosby Says “Hoodlum Vote” »

Joe Scarborough (left) and Tucker Carlson (center) are baffled as Rita Cosby says Democrats want the “hoodlum vote.”

The popular blog Crooks and Liars points out that Rita Cosby said on tonight’s show that Democrats are going after the “hoodlum vote.” This is her strange way of describing the belief that citizens should be allowed to vote even if they have been convicted of a crime. I’m among the people who believe the right to vote is so central to citizenship that being convicted shouldn’t prevent one from voting; apparently Rita Cosby would hold that belief against me.

Rita Cosby also says it’s “racist” for Democrats to oppose the disenfranchisement of felons. I suppose that means she would consider me a “racist,” since I’m against disenfranchising citizens over the age of 18 who want to vote.

Ann colter has been getting away with it for quite a while. Someone on Smirking Chimp wrote that journalists who supported hitler were tried at Nurenburg. None got the death penalty but I wonder how many served time for enabling this horror? Good thing to write the neo-monsters at the “Traditional Media” when sending outraged emails about their latest outrage.
