Give 'Em Zell!

Well, if everybody else can use that headline, why can’t I?

I didn’t get to watch it live, because I was getting back from San Francisco, but The Daily Recycler has video of both Zell’s barnburner of a speech, and his smackdown of Chris Matthews.

I’m not as comfortable with the latter as some are (and there extenuating circumstances: it didn’t seem like Miller could hear Matthews all that well over his headphone, and it was late in the Northeast), but God knows, Matthews has had it coming for a while now. Of course, ever since Bush and Cheney’s Clymer remark in ’99, taking shots at the press has been a bipartisan sport.
