Before telling a 100 percent falsehood about Reaganomics on HBO's "Real Time," the MSNBC commentator said the Strategic Defense Initiative would never work because you can't shoot a missile out of the sky with another missile (video follows with transcript and commentary):
MADDOW: You know what? Here's the country, here's the kind of thing you put over like a cake to protect the cake from flies. Missiles don't work that way. Thatís the whole idea of SDI. We'll protect ourselves by shooting missiles at other missiles. Itís never worked in a test. We spent billions on it.
And this is supposedly MSNBC's most intelligent prime time commentator.:D
