MSNBC’s Chris Matthews took his constant attacks on former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to a new plateau Tuesday by asking whether she was like Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, who in the past few days has been killing his own people.

“Is she like Moammar Gadhafi, she just doesn’t know the world around her?

Replied Politics Daily and Mother Jones writer David Corn: “That’s some comparison.”

“If she shows with an umbrella, and start saying: ‘I’m here, I’m not there…’” Matthews said, in reference to a Monday video showing the Libyan leader talking from the door of his car, with an umbrella in hand. “Anyway … I thought – well, she’s not – I don’t think she’s as bad as him.
“I’m not going to go that far.”
