Chris Matthews, Vocal Coach

Chris Matthews speculates on why Hillary was not given a more prominent speaking slot at the convention, and comes up with an ingenious theory: Concern for animal welfare.


CHRIS MATTHEWS:  Men—and I‘ve known this—I‘ve been trying to stop—tend to shout when they‘re on television or at public events.  And they get away with it. . . "The McLaughlin Group" is like that.  The men yell.  When Eleanor yells, it sounds high-pitched.  Is that just a problem for Hillary, because I‘ve seen so many women in politics, like Barbara Boxer, who in person have moderated, wonderful tones. They‘re very charming in their presentation.

MOLLY IVINS:  Right. 

CHRIS MATTHEWS:  They get behind a microphone and they start to yell.  It doesn‘t work. 

MOLLY IVINS:  Well, not all of us have those high, shrill voices, Chris. 

CHRIS MATTHEWS:  Well, you‘re giving me the, what, Raymond Burr now? You know what I‘m talking about. 

(LAUGHTER)

CHRIS MATTHEWS:  Hillary Clinton can squeal right so the dogs are going crazy, OK?  Right?

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
