Unable to stay on point and debate an issue, Morgan (predictably) shifted to the rightwing talk radio personalities' modus operandi: Changing the subject with an ad hominem attack. Out of nowhere, she accused Chris Matthews of "having a gleam" in his eye and a "great time trying to make Dick Cheney look like a hypocrite." Irrelevant, but surprisingly, Chris Matthews fell for it. He allowed himself to be distracted by her taunt and got defensive. By the end of the segment, Matthews was justifying himself to Morgan with "I hate this war, it's left me very sad."
It was a truly pathetic display.
