Mark Williams, on Thursday’s Hardball:
On the August 16 edition of MSNBC’s Hardball, radio host Mark Williams asserted that “every military advance we have made” in Iraq “has been ruined, one way or another, by some fat-mouthed congressman, usually a Democrat, opening his mouth on Capitol Hill.” Williams also asserted: “I hope what we get is the truth from General [David] Petraeus about every step forward on the ground being made by the military since we started this being ruined, and two steps backwards being taken on Capitol Hill by the Democrats playing politics on this and plucking the pennies off the eyelids of the newly dead.”
Later, presumably referring to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Williams said, ” ‘Nancy Botox’ is out there saying, you know, “We’re leaving! We’re running! We’re gonna go away!” Matthews responded, “You know, Mark, that doesn’t help me any.”
I’m glad Media Matters is around to deconstruct the scenery-chewing political delusions that really do defy the laws of space and time. So let me do the dirty work and mention what the wonks won’t — this guy has a perfectly frozen forehead. Per. fect. ly. Watch the clip at Media Matters and look betwen his eyes and at his eyebrows. Absolutely immobile. No lift, no scrunch. Nobody of Williams’ age has that little movement without being shot to shit with Botox unless they’ve got some sort of neurological disorder. Watch him. He’s a preening, vain little trash talking popinjay and my guess is Matthews (or any other anchor) probably doesn’t want anyone delving too heavily into the subject of cosmetic enhancement on his show lest the floodgates open and everyone’s fair game.
