This is actually worse than Liam Neeson's ridiculous take on his role in the Chronicles of Narnia.
I'm not going to get into what a buffoon Matthews is, I'll let Neil Cavuto do it for me.
I've been writing/blogging and engaged in political activities off and on for about 7 years now. Part of the job is to know and understand what the other side thinks. I've had a gut feeling about the left, which has grown ever stronger since starting The Looking Spoon, that their thinking is so much more than a different point of view about the world. It is, at least to me, actually characteristically unintellectual at its core in the nicest sense, and flat out dishonest in its worst sense.
This problem is compounded by the fact that for decades the left has asserted itself as the smartest people in the room, and those who constantly trumpet their own "virtue" are found, by some sort of cosmic law, to almost always be farthest from the truth on the matter.
Either Richard Wolffe is a liar who is trying to make Sarah Palin look stupid by boiling C.S. Lewis down to a mere author of childrens' books, or his profound ignorance of Lewis's work is something that makes him supremely qualified to be a commentator on MSNBC.
Whichever it may be, what he said was especially offensive to me because "Mere Christianity" was gifted to me 5 years ago, as an ADULT, and reading it saved my Life.
I'm sorry if it's not as intellectually stimulating as chanting "yes we can" for his own messiah, but Lewis's writings have brought more people to God, and has done so more effectively, than Obama could've ever brought any voter in 2008 to actually know him.
This of course assumes Obama WANTED voters to know him in the first place. Blind people are more informed about color than a Democrat with a ballot can ever be about voting.
To hear a fool like Wolffe deride Lewis's brilliance as something to be reserved for kids only is beyond ridiculous, and all it does is further cement in my mind that "progressive thinkers" are allergic to anything that resembles real intelligent thought.
