Chris Matthews: Perenially an Idiot

Greg Sargent notes that Chris Matthews is the real issue for Clinton's campaign, not David Shuster. I've thought that myself.

Matthews shouldn't be on television. He's tremendously ill-informed; he considers himself a blue collar guy but he's a wealthy perfumed courtier masquerading; he's misogynist; he gets neither the big picture nor the details right, he slavers over Republican candidates (Fred Thompson's scent, Rudy's toughness, etc.), he is ignorant generally and reflexively stupid; and he displays his id more than his reason--and his id really is a sewer of sad psychosexual turmoil straight out of Eraserhead.

I'm an Obama supporter, but I'll admit the Hillary people have a real honest complaint about Matthews and his anti-Hillary jihad along with his general misogny. So does every other candidate who's not a male Republican presidential candidate--but for most candidates it's just not so direct and monotonal.

Now that he's trying to be nice to Hillary, he can't be fair to everyone else.

He should be off the air. He's a pox on politics. And I've been saying more or less the same thing for years now. Thankfully, BBC America has a news program on at 7 eastern so I can ditch Matthews fully.
