Kevin, What Did Chamberlain Do? What Did He Do?

You asked for it, Mayor Sam delivers! By request, once again,  here is the classic clip of Kevin James' May 2008 appearance on the Chris Matthews Show.  

One of the greatest meltdowns in talking head history, and a revealing glimpse into the man who would be Mayor.

After viewing this clip, one can begin to understand Jim Newton's/ LA Times rationale on not mentioning Kevin as a viable candidate in their piece.

Give me a break, there is nothing "revealing" about this clip other than the fact that Chris Mathews was out to attack from the start of the interview...Chris Mathews is a creep.

What's the big deal? So, the James spoke without thinking...and that makes him someone to write off as a potential mayoral candidate based on one appearance on TV?

I'm waiting for Joe to tell me what Chamberlain did and when did he do it.

Duh, Mayor. Every schoolkid knows that Neville Chamberlain signed the Munich Agreement in 1938. This gave the Sudetenland region of
Czechoslovakia to Nazi Germany. This was known as governing by appeasement, which is exactly what Chris Matthews was trying to get Kevin James to answer. Obviously Kevin's head was too busy exploding to get the answer right.

No one is voting for Neville Chamberlain this time around, so what does it matter? Not to mention, Czechoslovakia split into two republics - and I bet half the candidates would have to look up the names.
The only thing we should be concerned about is the damage most of the other candidates have done to Los Angeles in their official capacities.
They are today's Chamberlains.

Wrong again, Joe...

Chamberlain scored 100 points in a single game. Everybody knows that.

In the Mathews interview, it was Kevin who came out on the attack, and his target was Obama. His argument seems to have been that talking to any group that we see as our enemy, no matter how secret the negotiations, is "appeasement." The implication was obviously that Democrats as a group are soft, cowardly, unable to stand up to bullies, and in general, wimps. This line has been a part of Republican nastiness for decades, and is of course inconsistent with more than a century of modern history. Wilson and FDR stood up to Fascism, Truman and Kennedy and Johnson stood up to Communism, and on the other side, we had Eisenhower, Nixon, Reagan, and both Bushes cutting secret deals with China, North Korea, Islamic terrorists, and these deals eventually became public.

I don't really care about Kevin's ignorance of the Munich Pact, other than it suggests a certain lack of depth in his education. The fact that he got rolled by Mathews says something about his own toughness under pressure though, and his words suggest that he is prone to excess and right wing extremism. This isn't the Kevin we have seen recently, but it should make us wonder who the real Kevin is.

Joe B, you should re-post this video every time Kevin makes an announcement or some group offers him an endorsement. He's not Mayor material!
