Take away teleprompter, and insert foot!

The following is an exchange between Chris Matthews and Brian Wilson on MSNBC. Is it possible to put both feet into your mouth?

CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: But, here we have maybe 24 people who have lived inLondon and England and the free world for all these years that become citizens,subjects of the Crown, and yet, after having gotten to know us, they want tokill themselves to hurt us. Isn’t that an even deeper conundrum here than thechemicals being used in these attacks.

BRIAN WILLIAMS: And that, Chris, that last aspect, the willingness to takeone’s own life. I always tell people there are guys on our team like that, too.They’re called Army Rangers and Navy Seals and the Special Forces folks and thefirst responders on 9/11 who went into those buildings knowing, by the way, theyweren’t going to come out. So we have players like that on our team.

Last I checked, the aim of our soldiers is to preserve as much life as possible (their own and civilian). Ugh!!!! Our guys and gals want to return to their families. Get me the duct tape! Nice way to insult every veteran of every branch of service we have in our country's history, asshat!

Yeah, those Beach Boys are clueless. HA! If Williams wants kamikazes, tell him to look at the land of the rising sun.

Yeah, it is always a disaster when teleprompter robots try to have an intelligent conversation off-script.
