On Thursday's Hardball, Chris Matthews determined that Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner could be in danger of being forced out of Congress by Blue Dog Dems who face uphill battles in red states because, as he put it, "people in the rural areas of this country who are Christian conservative culturally - you can say backward if you want...don't like this kind of stuff."
During a discussion about Weiner's chances of survival, after being caught sending lewd pictures to women via Twitter, the MSNBCer claimed the liberal congressman didn't have to worry about his, according to Matthews, culturally superior constituents in New York - the "56 percent in Brooklyn and Queens" who "can live with this guy." Instead he had to be concerned with his Democratic colleagues fearful about re-election in the "conservative culturally part of the country."

So Chrissy would have no problem finding out his wife is sexting prison inmates or worse, conservatives.
How metropolitan.

I don't know if it that these people just don't get it or are being purposely disingenuous.

Chrissy wouldn't even be suggesting the same if it were a conservative. He is a political (and disingenuous) hack. If he had any integrity at all he would resign or at least drop the pretense of being a journalist.
