The Fearless Chairman Hao again ventures courageously into the hostile lair of that sinister arachnid of the airwaves, Chris Matthews' Hardball. In this episode, the wicked Matthews spins treacherous webs in his feebile efforts to trap Chairman Hao with questions about so-called "executive privilege" related to Supreme Court nominations.

But the Beloved Leader of the blue-book waving Dembots™ is entirely too nimble in his mental tactics.
- At times, one must baffle one's adversary with unseemly discourse.
"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.
Even the Sheehanite sect of the Dembotic™ party dances gleefully in front of their television sets as their Supreme Leader deploys his profound strategy, while their Republican opponents abjectly sit - no longer wondering why Dean gets away with using Burgess Meredith outtakes in political interviews on Softball.
