I'm not much of a Chris Matthews watcher.
I think he is dishonest. I think he carries the corporate and MIC water.

1. Yes. He is dishonest. He once said that he had voted for Bush twice

and would do it again, if Bush were running against the same people. And, he very literally drooled over Bush when he (Matthews) was at some college where Bush was about to arrive. However, that was before MSNBC switched over to pro Centrist Democrat, whereupon Matthews wisely did a 180--and none too gradually, either. Wise move. Gone from MSBC since then are folks like Swanson Foods heir and spoiled brat everyone remembers from third grade, Tucker Carlson.

Anyway Matthews was pressing his guests to say that Bubba was childing what Rahm referred to so contemptously as "the left of the left." And, when his guests declined to join him in left bashing, he pressed forward, saying he (Matthews) thought Clinton was referring to the left because (Clinton) said "whine." As if Obamabots don't whine--or worse?

Anyway, I will be changing the channel any time that I see Chief Talks Over His Guests As They Try to Answer the Question He Just Asked. Sometimes, I've been too preoccupied or too indifferent to make a point of changing the channel, but no more.

This is the man who worked for Tip O'Neill?

Every time I think I can't possibly dislike New Democrats more, someone changes my mind. That day it was Matthews. I wonder who it will be tomorrow?
BTW, Maddow's bringing Hayes in to banish Shultz, whose ratings were second at MSNBC only to Maddow's, has backfired. Not only is Shultz returning Saturday afternooon just before prison resumes. but Hayes is starting to beat Ms. One Trick Phony in the ratings.

(meaning no disrespect to Leopold's Ghost or his bronies)

Not that I care which bot is ahead in the MSNBC ratings.
