A Question For Chris Matthews.

Once again last night on Hardball, you were drooling over the candidacy of Rudy Giuliani. He's a real man's man and all. Yet, in the 1990's, you went literally crazy over the news of Clinton having an affair.

So far as I know, Bill Clinton didn't bring his mistress into the house and have sex with her while the wife and kid were upstairs. He didn't marry his cousin, pretend after over a decade that he had no idea she was his cousin. He didn't go marching in parades with his mistress. He didn't announce a divorce by press conference, not even informing his teen-aged children that they were about to be embarrassed in the largest media market in the country, if not the world.

Bill Clinton's behavior was intolerable. Rudy Giuliani is a great guy. Would you care to explain the difference to your viewers so they can appreciate your wisdom? Is it because Rudy looks great in drag? Did you enjoy him screaming at ferret owners in a manly way? Is it his loyalty to Bernard Kerik?

Tell my Chris. Why is it ok for Rudy to be brazen about his serial adulteries and marriages when it's not all right for Bill Clinton.
