Quit calling it "softball" with Chris Matthews
Our ladies Olympic softball team ROCKED the world with their performance.
Softball is as competitive of a sport as baseball is.
However, I have no objections to you calling it "Whiffle Ball", after all, his rhetoric is lightweight and full of holes. Fits better, doesn't it?

1. I like it. "WiffleBall" has a much weaker ring to it. Good call!

2. More like T-Ball
He just puts the ball on the 'T', and the RW guest takes a whack at it.

11. Or Yarn Ball
Spitball, Cheeseball, Beachball, Meatball, but certainly NOT Hardball.

Matthews usually plays Dodge Ball when it comes to the facts.

20. Or No Balls.
The only time Chris Matthews gets hard is when he sees a photo op starting his favorite monkey.

16. The way people behave on TV these days... dodgeball!
Dodge the question.

Dodge the blame.

Dodge the issue.

Dodge the controversy.

Dodge the other people dodging the question, blame, issue or controversy.

Straight answers are a thing of the past, it appears.
