Thin Skinned Lefties

'Tease me about my tingling leg and I feel all sad inside.'
Chris Matthews took his show on the road for the RNC Convention and made the mistake of doing a show at an outdoor stage near the Tampa Bay Times Forum. "Hey Chris, how's that tingle up your leg?" came the call from two gentlemen, amongst giggles and laughter from the audience during a break in the show.
"Then this short dude who works for MSNBC pushed them," said Toby David, who came to the defense of the two hecklers. Another witness, Kim Churchman, added, "One of them was smiling and didn't know it was coming, and the guy just shoved him."
If anyone deserves to be razed for making such a stupid-ass, fawning statement, it's the tingler Chris Matthews. That being the case, the runt producer is going to have to learn to take it. There are a lot of people who would like to ask Chris if his leg is still tingling, just for the fun of watching that little puke of a producer try to lay hands on 'em.
Said David: "He kept pushing them around, so I rolled over there. And the MSNBC guy says, 'You wanna get in trouble too?’ I said: ‘Who are you? A cop? If not, maybe I should make a call and we'll see who's in trouble.' The MSNBC guy was just talking tough."
What a joke, this guy.
The MSNBC employee identified himself to The Hollywood Reporter as a producer but would not supply his name.
There's courage for you.
An MSNBC spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

An officer said that MSNBC told convention security that the two men "charged" at the producer.
Sounds about right. Start the lying right off the bat, and lay it on thick. That's the MSNBC way. Chris Matthews himself couldn't have said better.

  1. Keeping true to form, MSNBC host Chris Matthews got into a heated exchange with Republican delegates at a Tampa restaurant early Friday morning.

    “I was trying in my way to engage, as I often do, with critics, hoping to find some common ground. Sometimes it works out better than this.”

    So what did you say, Chris?

    “What’s this, a douchebag convention?”

    I can see how that approach might not work out too well. You used much the same approach with the RNC Chairman:

    The “Hardball” host made news earlier this week after he got into a heated argument on "Morning Joe" with Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus. Matthews accused the GOP and the Romney campaign of playing the race card.

    Priebus said Matthews's comments were “garbage,” and Matthews responded, "It's your garbage."

    No, it's your garbage, Chris.

    The RNC head subsequently called Matthews "unhinged" and "hysterical."

    I can see you really managed to engage there.

    Nice work, Bubba.
