Chris Matthews, you ignorant slut.

I begged The Right Scoop for the embed code for this clip that they did for Ace of Spades HQ. Begged for it:

For those without video access: it shows two clips from the same episode of the Chris Matthews show. In the first clip, Matthews and guests laughingly question George Bush’s (who is, I hear, a white guy and former American President) academic credentials; and in the second clip, Matthews and other guests bitterly whine that… nobody ever questions a white President’s academic credentials.

This, ten minutes later.

I’m very tempted to rant about this, but I keep coming up against the awkward problem that this would require me to take the utterances of Chris Matthews more seriously than Chris Matthews does himself. So I won’t. But remember this the next time that somebody tells you that MSNBC needs to be taken seriously in the field of political analysis (or even in the field of has-the-wit-to-come-in-out-of-the-rain); this is an impressive nadir of credibility, even for them

PS: Underpants go on inside the trousers, Matthews. Just in case the sequence has been getting tricky, lately.
