Matthews Show says Summers was right

In an incredible comment on the "The Chris Matthews Show" of 28 December 2008, Larry Summers (formerly Prez of Harvard) not only was mentioned as a comeback story for 2008 but also was stated to have been right in his comments about women.

Was it Howard Fineman or David Brooks? No one on the panel (including Michele Norris and Norah O'Donnell) said a thing.

See previous IPBiz posts: [His [Summer's] contention that boys outperform girls in science and maths because of genetic differences ...] ["I felt I was going to be sick," said Nancy Hopkins, a biology professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who listened to part of Summers' speech Friday [Jan. 14, 2005] to a session on the progress of women in academia organized by the National Bureau of Economic Research in Cambridge, Mass. ]

If Hopkins was going to be sick in 2005, imagine her reaction to someone in 2008 saying Summers was right after all.
