I switched off the TV before they got around to interviewing her, figuring it would just be a redux of last night's confused yammering at a Paultard, and now I kind of wish they hadn't... This guy did a good job of rather gently dismantling this woman. Wouldn't mind seeing him get Chris's job.
He really did do a great job.
On a side note, she even came across poorly on Fox News with soft handling from Hannity and her husband beside her. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jyT_M3aEJKc
I saw only a short clip of this interview, I'm glad you found this version. Also, I despise this woman's ignorance and inability to see the logical conclusions of her ideas, but I respect her honesty and candidness. And this fill in guy did a good job of showing her and the audience her ideas were bad without belittling her. Bravo!

Amazing how brutal getting asking these morons a simple polite question can seem.
This needs a "Glen Beck fan" tag.
Anyone here not know the answer to the question "Do you earn over $250000 a year?"
She has a plan with a $5000 deductible that she's paid into for years and years and hasn't once in any given year met it in order to actually use her plan and is mad about not getting anything back for the money she's paid in taxes?
That's really messed up.
Gentle... gentle rape..
He lured her in with the false comfort in the beginning and then made a straw man out of her and raped it.
I'm not complaining, mind you.
He didn't make a strawman... he just asked her simple questions.
I think a lot of them were legitimate, but equating not being into politics with not caring about the war to be silly.

Next up, we talk with some fat chick who works at donut shop about Russian foreign policy.
What I think I see is an innocent bystander who goes through her typical day not worrying about current politics, that has been sucked in by the fearful, hateful and purposely misguided hysteria these town hall crashers are spouting. It sucks that their message may actually have some real legs when it comes to the average civilians that are ignorant of the issues because they have normal, every day life issues that take priority.
Although she did seem kind of ignorant even of personal issues that directly effect her. I dunno. FART!
Unless she is just another Joe the Plumber...I dunno anymore...is anyone or anything genuine on these news networks?

Good God, why do we even bother with Chris Matthews?
wow, another dumb, intellectually lazy, pampered, skilless bourgeouis housecunt babycannon who doesn't know fucking anything about anything who suddenly knows what's best for everybody
really, fuck you, lady.
Yeah, I trade my stars to babyconnon.

"housecunt babycannon" should definitely be a tag. Also, fuck this woman with a broom. She is the worst type of voter, not bothering to know what she's even angry about. What a fucking horrible person.
Yeah...let's ditch all constitutional amendments made after 1780. She probably doesn't care to vote anyway.
Way to recycle those Victoria Jackson "Weekend Update" skits, reality.

$5,000 deductible. holy christ.
This woman is retarded, and I'm assuming indicative of the entire movement.
|Dan Druff |
Five stars for showing to the rest of the world what ignorant, provincial, apathetic retards the entire movement is made of.
The only problem is that you'll never be able to demonstrate that to the people in the movement themselves.
white people vs. "the man"

HOW CAN I PAY ATTENTION TO WARS I WAS BUSY GETTING A MEAL TICKET AND POPPING OUT BAAAAAAYBBBBEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES
STOP!! STOP!! SHE'S ALREADY DEAD!!

Total evisceration, and so politely done. I think I have a new favorite host.
(Her uncomprehending, dead-inside look didn't hurt, either.)
This was... so beautiful. Look at the way he asks her essentially to fuck over her parents, watch the agony in her simple eyes as she tries to skirt around it. I'm going to echo a few thoughts and say this nameless henchman blew Matthews out of the water.
Five stars for the that glorious smirk on the host's face at 7:30 that captures the mood of this entire interview.
This guy is hitting home runs much like Rachel Maddow did when she stood in for Olbermann. I smell a new show on the horizon.
This is Lawrence O'Donnel, who is something of a fixture on debate shows like Mclaughlin Group and shows up on whatever is left of Air America a bit. He's a generally smart individual and has a good grasp of the ins and outs of Washington politics.
I'm surprised how many people here don't seem to know who Lawrence O'Donnell is. He's one of the few talking heads willing to call bullshit.
Listen to him call Dick Cheney sleazy, an abomination, and liar:
Here he is being disgusted by Liz Cheney:
Well played, sir.
Cancel Ed Shcultz' boring-ass show and give Lawrence O'Donnel his own program, NOW.
He will eat the skulls of your enemies while giving them a backrub.
Also: a million stars for having the balls to say "social security and medicare are socialism. Who cares? THEY WORK."
Long overdue update ... turns out Katy has a Web site and a job:
"Katy Abram is currently the policy analyst for Americans For Prosperity-Pennsylvania (AFP-PA), where she advocates for limited government, free markets and judicial fairness."
Spolers: she's still a god damn idiot.
Updated update ... since her blog no longer discusses anything except shopping, "The Walking Dead", and sinus surgery, I get the feeling she's out of work. She describes herself as a "photojournalist", but I don't see much evidence of actually holding down a job.
