    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):
    snip
    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.
    snip
    And this is supposedly MSNBC's most intelligent prime time commentator.:D

    It is a shame we can not strap Mad Cow to a missile to see if it really works.

    Can't shoot missiles out of the sky, huh. I guess those patriot missiles shooting down those scuds were a dream?

    I read the transcript. She's wrong on SDI...ever hear of the Patriot Missile System?

    And she's completely dead wrong about what caused the breakdown between Gorbachey and Reagan in their Iceland summit.

    For a "woman" who has a Doctorate in PoliSci and is a Rhodes Scholar...she doesn't know too much.

    Either that ir she is purposely being misleading with her answers.

    I think it's the latter.

    The system was hyped right after the war to selll systems before the flaws were known.

    You belived the lies.. The system never worked.

    And implying that since the patriot missile system "worked" ... then SDI must also work is 100% absurd.
    I am not wasting anytime on you, butt product. Do your own research.
