Oh my . . .

I've added another hero to my very short list heroes.

MSNBC's John Harwood dares go where no mainstream media news correspondent dares to go. He told the truth about some very dumb Americans on live television.

Transcript (video after):

Novotny: John, what about this controversy over opposition to Obama's speech to school children?

Harwood: I've got to tell you Monica, I've been watching politics for a long time and this is, this one is really over the top. What it shows you is there are a lot of cynical people who try to fan controversy and let's face it, in a country of three hundred million people there are a lot of stupid people too, because if you believe that's it's somehow unhealthy for kids for the President to say work hard and stay in school, you're stupid.

Novotny: Ouch.

In fact, I'm worried for some of those kids, I'm worried for some of those kids of those parents who are upset. I'm not sure they're smart enough to raise those kids.

There's faint hope for salvaging the integrity and reputation of the American media yet.

P.S. - John, expect an in-box full of hate filled e-mail sprinkled with random death threats on Tuesday morning my friend.
