Chris Matthews: Iowa caucuses shaping up to be ‘a victory of dollars over democracy’

MSNBC host Chris Matthews blasted multimillionaire Mitt Romney on his show Monday night, just a day before the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses. “This Republican caucus in Iowa has the looks of a travesty,” he said. “A victory of dollars over democracy, financial equity over equality. Romney is destroying the only opponent…

Gay soldier booed at GOP debate shares his reaction

An openly gay soldier who was booed by a Republican audience spoke to MSNBC host Chris Matthews on Wednesday about his reaction to the incident. Army Captain Stephen Hill asked at the Fox News Republican presidential debate in September if the candidates intended to “circumvent the progress that has been…

Chris Matthews’ Republican brother arrested for perjury

A commissioner of Pennsylvania’s third-largest county was arrested Tuesday on perjury charges surrounding an investigation into campaign contributions and contracts. James R. Matthews, a Republican, is brother of liberal MSNBC host of Chris Matthews. He is in his 12th year as a Montgomery County Commissioner. The grand jury found that…

Religious claims don’t belong on news shows

I was mildly surprised to see some people react negatively to my post yesterday making fun of Chris Matthews and company for "debating" the existence of hell on what was supposed to be a news show. To my mind, it was just clearly just a joking post that was aimed…

What atheists hear when people “debate” theology

I love Nicole's take on how ridiculous it was that Chris Matthews had a round table to debate "what if there was no hell?*": "This is why we can't have nice things."  Debating whether or not there is a hell on national television is one of those things that makes…

SOTU: What Chris Matthews’ “I forgot Obama was black for an hour” statement really means.

I could toss off some wry comment about this ridiculous comment by Chris Matthews, but the fact that he had no problem stating this on the air raises an interesting question — what is he really saying with a statement like that? What it boils down to is that there’s…

The stupidity bar keeps getting lower

What part of the word “choice” do these morons not understand? I don’t know if it’s just that I got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning or what, but it seems to me that misogyny levels in this country are getting perilously high lately. What the…

Shooting the messenger

In doing some research this morning for my LA Times piece, I saw some more fake outrage aimed at making sure that the media and the bloggers are cowed from criticizing Sarah Palin, which of course would free her to be the candidate, instead of John McCain, who unfortunately has…

Republican ‘strategist’ smacked down on Hardball for the ‘lipstick’ mess

Watch GOP “strategist” John Feehery get torched by Chris Matthews on Hardball last night. I have to hand it to Chris for focusing like a laser on this non-issue to get at the meat of the problem (and I’ve given a hard time for plenty of past wankery) — he…

That’s Change Someone Else Can Define For Me

Watching Hardball, Chris Matthews is doing a good job of tearing into the “lipstick on a pig” story…except that he then turns around, testifies to John McCain’s utter awesomeness, and then asks why people are doing this on his behalf without his approval. K-Lo declares that Palin must surely despise…
