BIZARRO Chris Matthews: “This looking down our noses at tea party people has got to stop”
Hot Air repost on The Right Scoop blog ^ | June 11, 2014

Posted on 06/12/2014 5:48:53 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Once again, I’m wondering what in the world has happened to Chris Matthews. I mean, this guy has said some horrible stuff about the Tea Party and if anyone has eve looked down at Tea Party candidates, it’s Matthews.

But here he is on Ronan Farrow’s show, chastising him looking down his nose at ‘tea party people’:

“This looking down our noses at tea party people has got to stop. They have a message, they’re as American as any liberal is, and they’re really angry of the failure of the system.

We can’t control the deficit, we can’t control the debt, we can’t control the border. What is government good at?”

Dude. He then goes on to praise Dave Brat, talking about how great he sounds.

I’m bewildered at this point.

Forget politics. I wonder about his sanity (no I don’t think he is literally insane). But he is inconsistent and ALL over the map on just about everything. He is unwatchable not just for his politics but for his inability to maintain coherence and let anyone else speak.

I am convinced that in order to decide what he believes today he just throws a dart at a dartboard.

I’m wondering if he found Jesus and the rest of this was part of his newfound knowledge.

My theory is that at some point around 1999, someone kidnapped the Chris Matthews who used to rail against Bill Clinton night after night and talk about how disgusted he was with how Bill and Hillary were dealing with the Lewinsky scandal, and replaced him with a dogmatic, liberal robot. But perhaps now the old “blue collar Democrat” Matthews escaped and got back on the air somehow.

Once upon a time, long, long ago, he was a fairly sane Democrat. Maybe he has realized just how OTT he had become.

Or maybe he’s just trying to salvage the network and his ratings.

Has Chris Matthews “evolved” on the Tea Party?

We know he learned his politics under Tip O’Neill as a speechwriter I believe, so we know he’s a liberal at heart. That said, he knows political trends and can sense a Democrat shellacking in November. He’s trying to keep himself relevant so my guess is this awakening to the Tea Party is being orchestrated to separate himself from the other lefties in the media.

Chris Matthews would have to look up to see Tea Party people.

Looking down his nose he'd only see more of his kind, scum-bags!

In the mid 90s, he filled in for Rush Limbaugh.

He didn’t sound like himself covering the taliban exchange either. I don’t know if that was the event that got to him or something else.

Must have been mugged by a transgender and was saved by a cc middle-aged white guy with a Tea Party shirt.

Chris Mathews did what many white people believe they have to do: prove they aren't racist, or sexist, by going to ridiculous lengths.

Apparently after five years he thinks he can start thinking independently again.

Of course if Hillary gets elected he'll have to prove he isn't a sexist by praising her, too and he'll have another five years of sounding ridiculous.

Chrissy sees a wipeout coming for his ‘rat party in the fall and doesn’t want to be on the outs with the people who will be the big movers and shakers in DC for the next few years....

Ronan Farrow is annoying enough to turn Chris Matthews (a little bit) conservative.
