CHRIS MATTHEWS:Â Donâ€™t you regret that you solemnized the marriage between the responsible Republican Party of John McCain and Sarah Palin?
STEVE SCHMIDT: I knew you were going to go there!
MATTHEWS: Of course I'm going to go there! It's your most famous event.Â
SCHMIDT: Look, it's been self-evident for some time that when you look at some of these folks, whether it was her, whether it was a Christine O'Donnell in Delaware, we shouldn't define who is and who isn't a conservative on your capacity to suspend disbelief. To say that these people have the capacity to be in the United States Senate. Look, this has been self-evident for years, Chris.
MATTHEWS: Yeah... At leastÂ I got my thrill up my leg from Obama.Â You got it from Sarah Palin! It's never gonna go away.
