On July 14th, Chris Matthews told the tea partiers to shut their mouths and let the adults take care of the economy. According to the MSNBC host, conservatives don’t have anything to contribute and that their caterwauling is disruptive to the genius musings of liberals/ progressives.

"More money in Hoosiers' incomes and a terrific job of cost control by state employees working together combined to produce an even stronger result than we expected at budget time," Daniels said.

To liberals, this must be the equivalent of the Twilight Zone; or worse: Tales From the Darkside.
