Her Madame Defarge of the left

so said Chris Matthews

More violent imagery from Matthews: If Clinton beats Obama, "what does she do with the body?"

...Additionally, on the April 24, 2005, edition of his NBC-syndicated television show, Matthews referred to Clinton as "sort of a Madame Defarge of the left," referring to a villainous character in Charles Dickens' novel, A Tale of Two Cities. According to, a website that provides study guides for classic novels, Madame Defarge is "a cruel, vengeance-seeking agent of the [French] revolution ... [who] spends her days knitting a 'register' of names of people she has marked for death."
