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.
