Meet Your Douche Nozzle: Kevin James
It's been awhile since I featured a Douche Nozzle of the Week, but Kevin James (not the King of Queens, some Republican radio talk show host pictured here in Official Republican Wear) takes the cake here.
On Chris Matthews show to presumably defend President Bush's loathsome words today to the Israeli Knesset suggesting that some unnamed Democrats were appeasers like Neville Chamberlain, James starts screaming immediately about how justified it was. (Somehow, I doubt he defended the Dixie Chicks so stridently.)
What's hilarious is that seemingly out of nowhere, Matthews asks him what Chamberlain actually DID that was so wrong. James essentially stutters and stammers saying, "He was an appeaser! He appeased!" Finally, he admits he doesn't know.
Think about that for a second. That's 10th grade Social Studies stuff right there. Chamberlain gave away half of Czechoslovakia to Hitler in a failed effort to save England and France itself from being invaded. (Yeah...that didn't work.) THAT is appeasement, the giving away the store in a pathetic effort to not get hurt yourself. Appeasement is giving the bully your lunch money every week so he doesn't beat you up. Diplomacy is talking to him and trying to talk him out of it. It might not work, but those are clearly two different things.
Yet, I digress. KEVIN JAMES DIDN'T KNOW WHAT NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN DID. It's not entirely clear he actually even knows WHO Chamberlain was. Bush said it, James just read the talking points and regurgitated them. That's fucking hysterical.
This is really just a priceless video. Watch it if you have the time.
