Hardball, January 18, 2006:

MATTHEWS: She said, “God wants New Orleans to be rebuilt.” How does she know? Why are people talking for a deity? We can argue whether there is a God, but then to be hearing voices. This is the Joan of Arc stuff.

ROGERS: There do appear to be a lot of people hearing divine calling right now. I haven't read what Mrs. Bush said, but I'll give her the benefit of the doubt.

MATTHEWS: She said God wants us to rebuild New Orleans.

ROGERS: Well, maybe he does.

MATTHEWS: Well, sure. Maybe he hasn't give it any thought, I'm not sure. I just don't know, but I wouldn't presume.

ROGERS: I don't want to pick on Mrs. Bush. I don't know what she said. I give her the benefit of the doubt.

MATTHEWS: Well, I just told you what she said. But you can hide behind ignorance.

ROGERS: Ignorance is bliss.


Earlier that very day on MSNBC's Imus In the Morning, Matthews continued giving in to his bliss with a cheesy attempt to steal some of the controversy swirling around the film Brokeback Mountain:

MATTHEWS: Well, the wonderful Michael Savage…calls it [laughter]—what’s he call it?—he calls it Bare-back Mount-ing. That’s his name for the movie.

IMUS: Of course, Bernard calls it [deleted]pack Mountain...

Maybe Chris should ask Mrs. Bush what God calls the movie, huh?
