Hide The Salami?
Earlier today when I check my Sitemeter stats, I noticed that someone came to this site based on a Google search of "hide the salami chris matthews." Since the term "hide the salami" is slang for sex, it made me cringe since it made me think about Chris Matthews having sex--yuck!
Today when I listened to Ed Schultz's radio show, I found out the reason: when Howard Dean was on Matthew's Hardball, he used the term to describe executive privilege:
MATTHEWS: Do you believe that the president can claim executive privilege?
DEAN: Well, certainly the president can claim executive privilege. But in the this case, I think with a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, you can't play, you know, hide the salami, or whatever it's called. He's got to go out there and say something about this woman who's going to a 20 or 30-year appointment, a 20 or 30-year appointment to influence America. We deserve to know something about her.
That answered that. I tried to listen to Schultz when I lived in LA but, as I pointed out the other day, reception for the station he's on was bad in my apartment. Now that I live in SD, I can listen to him. This guy knows his shit. Today Schultz called LA talk radio stuffed shirt Dennis Prager on his false claim that Schultz refused to debate him. Give 'em hell, Ed.
