Chris Matthews scolds talk radio host for not knowing history

This has absolutely nothing to do with Georgia, Georgia politics or anything related to Georgia. But you rarely see talk radio hosts called out for puttering out talking points of which they have no real knowledge.

Kevin James — no, not that Kevin James — appeared on Hardball to debate Mark Green of Air America. The Un-King of Queens parroted Pres. Bush's supposed jab at Barack Obama comparing the presidential candidate's expressed desire to meet with America's adversaries to Former British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain's appeasement of Adolf Hitler prior to World War II. Problem: James doesn't seem to have any idea what Chamberlain did.

And Matthews rips into him for it. "When you are going to make a direct historic reference, get it straight," he says. Cringeworthy and refreshing.

(Keep in mind that Matthews also makes a gaffe when he incorrectly says the U.S.S. Cole bombing occurred under Pres. Bush's watch.)
