Chris Mathews got his panties in a bunch over the use of the term 'regime' to describe the Obama administration. Matthews said, "I've never seen language like this in the American press."
Matthews didn't stop there. "I never heard the word 'regime,' before, have you?" he said to NBC's Chuck Todd. "I don't even think Joe McCarthy ever called this government a 'regime.'"
Matthews is either senile or competing for the title of 'World's Biggest Hypocrite."
It appears that Matthews has suffered a major memory loss. I don't have the facilities to search for every utterance of Joe McCarthy, but a look at more recent times reveals many, many, many examples of the phrase "Bush regime." In fact, a search of the Nexis database for "Bush regime" yields 6,769 examples from January 20, 2001 to the present.
It was used 16 times in the New York Times....
