Wow. Chris Matthews viciously attacked Barack Obama’s Afghanistan speech!
…Mind you, Chris Matthews thinks that he’s complimenting the President by comparing him to William Shakespeare’s Henry V. The context is the President’s not-a-naked-campaign-ploy-at-all visit and speech in Afghanistan yesterday, and it predictably caused Chris Matthews to start up with the sycophancy. Precise quote? “It was right out of Henry V actually, a touch of Barry, in this case, in the night for those soldiers | Read More »
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; | Read More »
Chris Matthews brings DOOM unto Jack Conway.
Yes. That Chris Matthews. Matthews apparently did not personally approve of the way that Jack Conway smeared Rand Paul with a recent scurrilous ad, and so took the opportunity to smack Conway around for over seven minutes of pretty much relentless, aggressive interviewing. Yes, again: that Chris Matthews. As I remarked just now on Twitter, watching this was like watching Jack Conway get mauled by | Read More »
Even Chris Matthews doesn’t listen to Chris Matthews. [edited]
(Via The Corner) Indeed, Mr. Barone [OOPS! York]: we knew that this was coming. Talking head Chris Matthews was instructed to take umbrage at Rush Limbaugh’s use of the term ‘regime’ to refer to this administration: “…The use of the word ‘regime’ in American political parlance is unacceptable, and someone should tell the walrus [Limbaugh] to stop using it.” Matthews didn’t stop there. “I never | Read More »
So, what’s the *most* offensive thing about this Chris Matthews clip?
This being the one where he wants Rush Limbaugh to, well, die: So. Is it… The aforementioned wants-Limbaugh-to-die bit? That the only reason that Chris Matthews is trying this is in the hope that going after Limbaugh will boost his ratings? Or that Chris Matthews thinks that Live and Let Die is a great film? I’m actually going to go with 3). Chris Matthews will | Read More »
Chris Matthews, Howard Fineman sexualize their digs at Gov. Palin.
It’s not surprising that Matthews isn’t visible in this clip. He’s the sort who’ll hide his face during an attack: …and unlike Ed Morrissey I don’t assume class from anybody at Newsweek until proven otherwise – which is a working methodology that has been completely justified by Howard Fineman’s example. But if you disagree that Fineman’s not reachable, well, his email’s email@example.com and the main | Read More »
Chris Matthews: Sarah Palin is illiterate.
Allahpundit cannot believe that the talking head is sufficiently mind-numbingly stupid so as to say on national television that Governor Sarah Palin can’t read: …Allahpundit, despite his dour demeanor, is surprisingly willing to believe the best of people at times. I respect that: but the Politico is under no such illusions about the talking head’s meaning, and neither am I. The talking head has notoriously | Read More »
