What was with Tweety?

Someone piss in his cereal this morning? I had to pause it for awhile and just finished watching it and that immigration back and forth with Rachel was odd. He kept beating that issue up and talking over Rachel. I know some don't like him but I've never really had an issue but that was weird. He sounded different within a couple of minutes so someone was talking in his ear.

1. Tweety doesn't sleep. Never pay any attention to anything he says after 8:00 PM Eastern Time. n/t

2. Not to put too fine a point on it, but

Hunh?

I didn't see it, and your description is somewhat less than lucid.

5. On msnbc

After they cut from the SOTU Tweety and Rachel started talking about immigration policy part of the speech and Tweety kept harping on the President not making enough concessions the rethugs on the issue and Rachel was trying to counter-point him and he kept raising his voice and talking over her. It was odd was all.

3. Well he always talks over people and I didn't catch the immigration exchange (but Tweety won't be

silenced!). I think his slap-down of Rubio's Response was GREAT!

I'm one of the ones who likes Tweety, but he can get a little irritating at times. I think he's just so passionate!

4. he's a long-time diabetic

I think these marathons are hard on him.

Apparently he spent the afternoon covering the Dorner matter. I notice that he is losing his voice.

6. The bad Tweety showed up tonight.

He really doesn't do well after 8:00 pm.

8. He will be fine by tomorrow.

He seems to freak out at first and then settles down.

He was on later with HardBall and at one point he had on David Corn and some woman from the tea party.

David loved all the things that President Obama spoke about and was not impressed with the tea party woman which I can't blame him.

He over spoke her a couple of times and then got chastised for it from Chris, meanwhile Chris does that lots...I felt bad for David it was rude of Chris.

9. Thanks for posting that. I was flabberghasted at how rude Chris was to David Corn too.

I thought last night that I might post a thread about what the hell was up with Matthews and voice the fact that of all the primetime MSNBC lineup, he's my least favorite. He steamrolled over everyone, but he's always and forever interrupting, hollering over his interviewees/other panelists, etc. It's clear that he's Comcast's MSNBC plant, because he made a point about saying that he had voted for GWB. What the hell gratuitous point was there in saying that? Somebody enlighten me, because I'd swear he had been told to make it clear to the viewers that he isn't on the Blue Team. This is my own conspiracy theory (and I know it's not true), but I'd swear he had a hand in getting Olbermann canned a few years back. Well him and Comcast, who had just begun its acquisition of NBCUniversal (and I know Olbermann has been notoriouslyl fired from virtually all his past venues because of his enormous ego), but it's pretty obvious to me that someone like Tweetie can barely abide being on a panel with anyone else. It's pretty obvious that he considers himself a Washington insider due to his having once been an aide or speechwriter for O'Neill back during the Jurassic Period, but sheesh. Really, Chris?

11. I could not believe the way he lectured David - told him he was too brash.

Tweety probably recognized his own bad behavior. What as ass...
