Uh, yeah, who wouldn't understand that when you say "Chicago" you mean "black people?" Yeah, that's a given, right? Chicago = black people. And all this time, I woulda' thought it meant a major city in the midwest. Guess that's not right, and it taks the Chris Matthews show (ugh -- perish that particular thought) to inform us. When is this guy going to get FIRED? He is a danger to himself and others.

MSNBC Host Chris Matthews and a guest essentially said last night on Hardball that using the word "Chicago" when referring to President Obama is racist, despite the fact that Obama is from Chicago and refers to Chicago often in his own speeches.


We caught up with Rep. Allen West at the Republican National Convention in Tampa for his reaction.
