Chris Matthews is the DNC`s house puppy—he drools over and worships Kennedy and Clinton like a little boy looking for a father figure. He plays like he`s this working class beer-drinking regular guy, but he`s a preppy. His uncritical, boyish worship of Kennedy has always been embarassing; now that he`s giving JFK credit for the fall of the Berlin Wall he`s gone to full-blown delusional.
And for all his claims of being from “Philly,” he really grew up in Bucks County. Not exactly a gritty urban center.
