I was once a fan of Chris Matthews. He is on Morning Joe again this morning and he is absolutely pathetic in his self promotion.
They are discussing the 2008 election and Matthews just said, “If Obama winds in Iowa then Bill Clinton will be saying, ‘Matthews was right.'” Whooee – Does he think that Bill Clinton, a former President and World Leader, sits around wondering about what Chris Matthews thinks?
He is going on and on, talking and talking and talking. The other folks on the show, Mika Brezinski and Willie Geist, cannot get a word in. They try to speak and Matthews does not hear them – he just keeps talking away.
Matthews is probably having the show recorded so he can watch himself when he gets home tonight. I can just see him with an evening cocktail, his feet up on the ottoman, playing and replaying his comments on television, feeling satisfied that the world has him to watch.
