Chris Matthews Rips Tea Party Leader Sal Russo for Defending Nonsense from Bachmann
Other than his reference to Michele Bachmann as "this woman" which came off as condescending, Chris Matthews absolutely guts Tea Party Express leader Sal Russo after confronting him about Bachmann's ridiculous comments in Iowa that our founding fathers somehow worked to end slavery when most of them were slave owners. They wrote it in to the Constitution for goodness sakes.
Bachmann also says that John Quincy Adams was a founding father who worked to end slavery. He was the sixth President of the United States and died some 15 years before the Emancipation Proclamation. Anyway, enjoy this skewering on MSNBC's Hardball.
