Iran Resolution: Matthews Accuses Hillary of 'Wide Stance'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

File this one under "Mental Images We Could Do Without."

Discussing her attempt to straddle the Iran issue, Chris Matthews has accused Hillary Clinton of a "wide stance." For some time, the "Hardball" host has been making the point that while Hillary now claims she voted for the 2002 Iraq resolution only for purposes of authorizing more diplomacy, at the time everyone and his uncle knew that it was a war authorization.

For example, interviewing Hillary advisor Howard Wolfson on "Hardball" back in July, Matthews stated: "Anybody who didn't think we were going to war in the months leading up to the war in Iraq wasn't paying attention."

Today, Matthews employed the infelicitous metaphor for purposes of accusing Hillary of pulling a similar stunt on Iran.

Matthews seems to think letting Iran have nukes is better than bombing them. I do not know and he does not either. If they get one and they will just as sure as gay marriage is being crammed down our throats by the MSM I hope if they let one blow over here he gets to see it coming right at him. Maybe he will in that split second grow up.

When you have male genitalia, you might tend to have a wider stance.
