This is painful/hilarious to watch. It also reminded me of the time Matthews called out an Obama supporter who wasn't even aware of his legislative accomplishments. The two main lessons you can take from this are: (1) the appeasement argument pushed by Bush, McCain and Lieberman lately is just plain silly, and (2) don't shoot your mouth off on television unless you know what you're talking about.
UPDATE: I still don't like Chris Matthews, though.
UPDATE II: It looks like Matthews made his own historical mistake in the same interview.
