Sarah Palin Scares MSNBC's Chris Matthews

For two days in a row, Chris Matthews has said Sarah Palin frightens him. And contrary to what the right-wing nutters might thing that fear is, it's not just having someone you don't support win an election over your guy.

It's that she's dangerous.

On yesterday's Hardball, Chris was joined by Daily Beast's Mark McKinnon and MSNBC' Richard Wolffe to discuss her Tea Klux Klan appearance and "palm notes":

"This is getting truly scary. This isn't just not knowing what you're talking about, or pretending you know what you're talking about. Here is scary thinking you know what you're talking about."

"You know, Huey Long wasn't the most sane guy in the world, Richard, but he said that when fascism comes to America, it will call itself anti-fascism."

Anne Kornblut and Mark Halperin were on today's Hardball (interesting to see Mark continuing his about face on the merits of having Sarah Palin in any position of power):

"She's frightening. Mark, that is frightening stuff. Frightening. First of all, presidents do not declare war. Anybody knows that in high school. Congress has to declare war."
Chris is right to be afraid. As should everyone.
