Chris Matthews Insults Rice & Powell as ‘Showcase Appointments’

Newsbusters is on this and has the video from tonight of this disgusting statement from Chris Matthews.

How can you call yourself tolerant or socially conscious when you say something like this?

Again he [Barack Obama] carries with him the history of tonight. And it’s important to point out, as we have not so far, Barack Obama was not given this nomination, he won it. He was not offered a nice title like Secretary of State, like Condoleezza Rice got from the Republicans. He was not offered the title of Chairman of the Joint Chiefs as Colin Powell was, or Secretary of State. He won the nomination of a Democratic Party voting together. He defeated all other opponents and took the prize and took the leadership. He is the chosen leader of the Democratic Party.

He is not some popular appointment or a showcase appointment. He is the victor here tonight.

I guess either Secretary Rice or General Powell did nothing to earn their positions other than being a minority that the Republicans could exploit. Could the same be said for every minority that was in the Clinton Administration?

I have lost what little respect I had left for Chris Matthews and will never watch him again.
