No matter what happens in November, I hope we will live to see more of the mad political skilz of Chris Matthews, who is reportedly considering a run for Arlen Specter’s U. S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania. After a contorted non-answer to a question about the Defense of Marriage Act, Matthews replied to a few follow-up questions from a member of the Pennsylvania delegation in Denver this week:
MS: Well, where are you on the issue [of gay marriage]?
CM: I have an open heart. I’ll have to live with it.
MS: In other words, you won’t answer the question.
CM: I can answer it the way I have, which is any f***ing way I want. I can answer in my way even if it isn’t your way.
Tasty! This guy could make Alan Keyes look like Seneca.
Is this all a part of the wheels coming off of the bus at MSogynNyBC? Who cares, but it sure looks like everybody hates Chris! (Be sure to click on that last link to see a video of Keith Olbermann making the “flapping jaw” signal with his hand in reference to Chris!)

I hate Chris too, but I hate him a little less after watching this. He seems sincere (or drunk, or both!)
He’s an idiot. May the good people of Pennsylvania realize that before they seriously entertain him as a Senate candidate. (Seriously–I don’t think he would be an effective Senator, because he’s said and done so many completely stupid things about/to politicians.)
Hint to Chris: next time, don’t tell Democratic party activists that you’re entitled to talk to them “any f***ing way [you] want.” Those are the people you’ll need to help you win a primary, buddy, as well as a general election!
Matthews is a wanker. Do people with cable actually watch his show?
Historiann, I hope your semester is off to a good start.
I think Pennsylvania can take care of this problem. I don’t see this initiative getting too much traction on either end of the Commonwealth. It the middle it’s maybe a little bit hard to tell, but I don’t think Darlin’ Arlen will be running too scared on this one.
I’ve been wrong on this kind of thing, though. Looking forward to the review of the big balloon-drop in Denver.
See below for an update to the previous post. I liked it–more specifics, less vague cheerleadery slogans. It sounded like a Clinton state of the union address, which is a compliment.
