This is absolutely remarkable.
I meant to post this video yesterday when I saw it but I couldn't get the embed to work.
I am going to tell you what happened before you watch the video but I don't know if you will actually believe it until you see it.
This segment is what Chris Matthews calls his "Big Number" on his Hardball show. He starts off by pointing out that new polling in a Washington Post poll shows that 70% of respondents in Virginia say that their feelings about President Obama will have no bearing on their vote for governor. He repeats this for effect after noting that the Democrat in the governor's race, Creigh Deeds, is down by double digits in the same poll.
But Tweety just can't help himself. You see Republicans have been saying that this race is a referendum on President Obama and Tweety is the ultimate concern troll. So just before he cuts to commercial he basically says "Damn what that poll says, this race is ALL about Obama".
It makes you wonder why he brought up the poll in the first place.
Chris Matthews is one of the major reasons I get pissed off when folks try to make analogies between FoxNews and MSNBC. If there is one guy who goes out of his way every single day to prove he isn't a liberal or progressive its Tweety. He will carry every drop of water for Republicans even when all evidence points to them being full of shit. Hell just today he was STILL trying to make abortion rights a "big problem" in health care reform when not even most Republicans are telling that lie any more.
In closing, fuck that guy!
