Skip to comments.Chris Matthews: Not Since Abraham Lincoln Has Someone 'Caused' Strife Like Sarah Palin
Posted on 06/02/2011 5:13:35 PM PDT by PROCON
According to Chris Matthews, Sarah Palin is the most divisive figure since Abraham Lincoln "caused" the Civil War. In an odd historical analogy, the Hardball host marveled at Palin's bus tour: "Leading off tonight, civil war on the right. Not since the election of Abraham Lincoln has a Republican caused such a war."
The anchor frothed, "Sarah Palin went right to New Hampshire, serving as a human grenade, blowing up his announcement by saying Romney's health care is a total violation of Tea Party beliefs."

Chris says the darndest things.
I bet the sight of Sarah sends a warm trickle down his leg...
I know, wasn't it great. Chrissy and his commie comrades are deeply saddened. They know Mitt wouldn't stand a chance in the general.
Thats pretty good company.
HItch your wagon to a star, Chrissie.
I think Bachman frightens him too.
Waste of a good bullet is what I say.
When is Chris going to go away? He and Zero can go play “hide the salami” and leave the rest of the world alone...
That is why they make bayonets.
That’d soil my cuffs ~ all that blood and gore ~ you can just imagine what that puke is full of.
She should say something like, “I am flattered that Matthews thinks I am like Lincoln.”
If you use a Mosin Nagant, you don’t even have to be in the same zipcode to bayonet somebody.
Would the next ‘Robert E Lee’ and ‘Jefferson Davis’ please step up?
Lincoln, Wasn’t that the gentleman that was trying to restore the union? Yes, I can see how that would fit.
But her negatives are in the 60s,whats the problem Chris,you should be Encouraging her
I have to admit that Bachman and Palin are quite a lovely pair . . . very photogenic . . . I'm sure that's driving the fuguglies and the feminazis totally nutz!
Good looking, self-made, educated, great résumés, verbose, witty, intelligent, and . . . did I say good looking?
Hey, Matthews, why don't you see if Weiner's veiner schnitzel will send a tingle up your leg?
First Weiner posts, then cucumbers, now we’re comparing bayonet lengths. Freud would have had fun with us!
So Abraham Lincoln was a bad person?
This snivelling loser thinks he’s keef oberdork?
I can see holder having her arrested under the patriot act and being charged as a subversive.
I think the analogy to 1860 is quite accurate.
I have been predicting a four-way election, with a high potential for war to follow, for two years.
Sarah as Lincoln? It’s possible.
I think the Democrat candidate and the Republican candidate will both be supporters of economic slavery and infanticide (although the Republican will lie about it). There will probably be a “Can’t we all just get along”, Constitutional Union-type candidate.
And there will be Sarah.
So long as it’s a guy.
Is this CM’s anti-tingle eruption?
I think Sarah has a larger number of people at ONE of her tour stops that Hissy-Chrissy has for total viewership. The tinkle down his leg is getting a little brown and stinky.
No, Lincoln was the instigator of the “War of Northern Aggression”.
Chris Matthews is pro-slavery?
Of course, for Chrissy "Tingles" Matthews, freeing the black people from a life of slavery is "strife".
Can you imagine the drool running down his face as he contemplated fellating Weiner???????????????????
Equating Chris Matthews to a states-rights Son of the South? Don’t like so much.
Methinks the man doth protest too much.
After many years married to a hot TV Reporterette, he may be tired of her (or more likely vice versa) and getting a tingle about Sarah. Thus, the reaction formation.
That's without a bayonette.
NO...I think he’s closer to brown stuff in his pants.....what a dreg.
Oddly I would agree with Chris...the country is polarized right now and the two polar choices are Palin vs Obama...no mush middleman need apply....
No wonder Matthews has a problem with “Lincoln causing the Civil War”. He managed to avoid the “war” of his generation:
Matthews served in the United States Peace Corps in Swaziland from 1968 to 1970 as a trade development adviser.
Hey, Matthews outed himself. He said Lincoln started the Civil War.
Makes Matthews “yourin” not one of “ours”.
Mama Grizzley got’em, LOL, thanks!
Personally I think that Michelle B is the better choice but Sarah really knows how to push the liberal’s buttons. It does almost seem like the two; Sarah and Zerobama, are destined to meet at the polling booth.
What is really ticking me off is the way so many talk radio jocks are saying that the Republican field doesn’t stand a chance against zero. The election isn’t about personalities it is about policies and the timeless principals that made our country great.
Hmmm, is that like a community organizer?!
Alas, your typical Europhiles in those days weren't exactly like the Eurotrash ski lodge folks but they were Europhiles to the degree they'd rather hold people in slavery so they could keep the price of cotton they sold to Europeans low.
If they'd been pro-American there'd been much less of a problem. Too bad so many had to die.
How utterly foolish of Chris Matthews to add himself to the list of Confederates.
Somehow, I don’t think that putting Ms. Palin on the same level as President Lincoln is the sort of comparison that Ms. Palin would seriously object to other than, perhaps, to say that she really hasn’t quite earned such a high and distinguished honor yet.
Whoa, what jocks?
Rush has been right in saying that 0bama is extremely beatable.
What's "0" going to run on?
High gas prices?
High food prices?
High utility costs?
Record home foreclosures?, etc, etc!
The 0bamabots are a lost cause, but if the so-called "independents" remember in November of 2012, 0bama is toast. and we're all racists..:=)
The One Nation bus should do the trick and you can just spray it off with a hose!!
