Skip to comments.Chris Matthews Scoffs at 'Irrelevant' Rush Limbaugh
Posted on 02/21/2008 12:19:51 PM PST by RatherBiased.com
Appearing on Thursday's 1pm hour of MSNBC News Live, "Hardball" host Chris Matthews couldn't resist taking a few swipes at Rush Limbaugh. After anchor Peter Alexander played a clip of the conservative talk show host discussing the New York Times story on John McCain, Matthews irritably claimed, "Rush Limbaugh is irrelevant here. Irrelevant. He doesn't know anything more than what he read in the New York Times."
The radio clip, from todays edition of Limbaugh's program, featured the host urging the presidential candidate to learn a lesson from the front-page New York Times story speculating about a improper relationship with a D.C. lobbyist. In the clip, Limbaugh argued that Republicans should learn never to trust the liberal-leaning news media as they will always turn to help Democrats.
Matthews's apparent annoyance at Limbaugh might have something to do with being mentioned in the clip. At one point during the monologue, Limbaugh asserted, "[McCain] has thought Chris Matthews and these other people in the drive-by media, are his friends. They aren't."

Just because Rush didn’t return Matthews’ mash letters...
No thrill in the thigh from Rush, Crissy?
Matthews is a temporary flash in the night sky.
The flea thinks the elephant is irrelevant. Too funny.
Matthews is just envious of Rush’s audience numbers.
Chris raise your hand if you own a jet.
Probably, and some 99 year old senator beat him up as well at a convention.
I think MSNBC is irrelevant ......Chris Matthews??? Who’s he? Anybody watch Hardball?????
Didn’t Crissy want to be a substitute host for Rush awhile back?
Why would he want to sub in for someone who’s irrelevant?
When it comes to being irrelevant, who better than Chris Matthews would know?
What does Chrissy know that he didn’t read in the NYT?
That’s the definition of irony.
Cwissy must be trying to raise his audience of moonbats from fifteen to twenty.
Who’s she? Never heard of her.
Chrissy gets about 15% of Rush’s ratings in any one day (and that is probably being very generous). It would take him several weeks to be considered relevant ‘cause it would take that long for him to say anything worth listening to (still unlikely).
Rush practices broadcast excellence every day and is heard by many many more people with a brain.
