That Piers Morgan is kind of an ignorant blowhard. You don’t notice it right away because of the English accent, but deep down he’s just a more refined version of Chris Matthews. This came out a while ago when he had Jonah Goldberg on and was a complete blockhead — it was like Jonah was talking to a cement block or a Chris Matthews. And then look at this exchange about gun control. He just laughs off Kopel pointing out there is no correlation in America between increase in gun ownership and an increase in violence because he doesn’t want to believe that. But the most striking part is how he claims to have a respect for the 2nd Amendment and then says he’d want to take away everyone’s guns but understands that’s just not possible so other solutions must be found. That makes me think of someone saying, “I really respect the fight against racism. Still, if I could have my way, I think black people and other races would be better off all back in their own countries. But since that’s not realistic, I guess we’ll learn to live together.” That’s not the statement of someone who really gets it.
