Great Matthews Quote On Hardball

Chris Matthews, when debating the labeling and characterization of the Iraqi insurgents on last night's Hardball:
"The word 'insurgents' is what the British called us during the American Revolution."
And, no, I'm not implying by posting this that there's an appropriate parallel between the insurgents in Iraq and our forefathers... It's just nice to hear Matthews challenge the typical way that Republicans try to oversimplify complex issues via labeling.
