Here's Chris Matthews of "Hardball" on Judge Alito's wife and how she'll be presented during tonight's State of the Union: "Won't they say something upbeat ... 'isn't she a great woman, didn't she stand up' -- and then they'll put the camera right on Ted Kennedy and show how he was the guy that molested her basically -- that's the way they'll play it."

See, if he'd accused Kennedy of running a "plantation," that would have crossed the line.
