Chris Matthews excuses Leon Panetta on drone strikes; But, ‘he’s conscientious, goes to church!’

Oh, dear. The White House might be distancing itself from the leaked Department of Justice memo on drone strikes, but good little doggie, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, did not distance himself from Leon Panetta during his show last night.

Oh, well. He’s conscientious and stuff. Plus, church! Funny how now church isn’t a bad thing, huh?

To the video tape!

The key quote:

I think Leon is a very conscientious guy. He goes to church every day. But I still think sometimes you have to do things that are not nice. We’re fighting a war.

Oh, boy! Liberals weren’t pleased.

A self-proclaimed member of CAIR, natch.

Their disappointment in Chris Matthews is just precious! As is Matthews’ alleged thinking: “Church-y Leon would give me hugs, but sometimes meany pants and icky, not nice things happen. And stuff. I can haz cookie?”

Lean forward! Into Dunce-ville.

    I’ve concluded that Mission No. 2 at MSNBC (besides being the official mouthpiece of the DNC) is to allow a forum for Toure and Chris Matthews to one up the other in bat-caca insanity.

    Every time Chris Tingle pontificates about church, the baby Jesus cries.

    He’s also of the mind set that Iran is a victim of Jewish terrorism and propaganda…what ever those things are.
