Chris Matthews Snidely Mocks Anti-War Protesters

Uh...Chris. Newsflash: people of all ages, income levels, and social registry access have something in common. Be it grandmas or grandpas, old veterans or recent ones, mothers or daughters, husbands, wives, or fiances (as the case may be), liberal, conservative and everywhere in between, they are all supremely disgusted. They are all tired of other people's children paying the price for George Bush's failures. As Digby says:

David Shuster was on Hardball earlier interviewing some of the Move-On folks who are coming out to the capitol to protest Republican obstructionism and support Harry Reid's all nighter. And what was the first thing out of Chris Matthews' mouth?
Well it's certainly a wholesome looking crowd for an anti-war bunch.
Apparently he was expecting to see some long haired college kids burning bras and taking over the ROTC building, which isn't a huge surprise. It's just the Washington establishment's irrational fear of hippies rearing it's anachronistic head again....
