Chris Matthews doesn't apologize about his involuntary slip but rather explain what he thought was so ridiculous about Jindal's entrance.

One more reaction from the MSNBC crew. Looks like Rachel was also outraged by the Katrina reference.
After a bunch of bullshit about how great it was to see an African-American addressing Congress and he's just like Obama, Jindal proceeds to explain how the government can't help the economy recover, by using Hurricane Katrina as the example of government not working. Does anyone else find this completely inappropriate? The people of New Orleans wanted the government to help, but they didn't show up. People all across the country (including in Louisiana) want the government to help them recover now. Bobby Jindal, stop running for President and start helping the people of your state. Watch his address here, or just the infuriating Katrina clip below.
