I heard a legend that Chris Matthews was actually just plucked from a suburban sports bar.

moments like these make me thankful for having a DVR. I must have baked up to check this 4 or five times to be sure what I was hearing. After that, I didn't even bother to stay up and listen to the rest.

He must have written a speech with a title like that in crayon. His mother must have been around the corner there, telling him to pluck up his courage, put on his nicest leer, and go out to read to the class.

He looks like a detestable person trying to imitate Mr. Rogers.
That's so offensive.

Here's a quote from a comment on Balloon Juice:
"His entrance was horrific. Stepping out of the shadows, he looks like the psycho killer who’s trying to act normal after just having finished sinking a car with a dead body in the trunk in the swamp behind his house. Did M. Night Shyamalan direct that entrance? Because I see dead people."
I transfer my stars to this comment.

damn you, I was just about to submit this!

I fucking love Chris Matthews and I don't care what anyone says.

When I saw it last night, I thought it was Olbermann. Probably because a) that's something he'd do, and b) he had just been speaking. Either way: awesome.

He's kind of got that "people are watching me, and now my ass feels like it's twenty times its normal size" walk going on there.

How could anyone put this clip up AND NOT PUT UP THE WHOLE SPEECH. This speech was like candy. Jindal just plodded through it reading it in the most inhuman manner possible as if he were reading off a cue card while taking a shit or something.
It's so funny when heartless, ignorant, morally bankrupt Republicans try to come across as sincere and "really, really nice guys."
|Thersites1960 - 2009-02-25 |
Even without Matthews' unseemly aside, Jindal's theatrical entrance could hardly have been more bizarre.
And now, to present the Republican response, Dracula...
...and he wants to wish you a happy Mardi Gras!!

"Let's see, should I go with the staid conservative blue tie or the candy cane stripy one?"

what's amazing is after "oh god" you hear laughter.
|Thersites1960 - 2009-02-25 |
You know what this is really like? It's like we're in a funeral home, and the mortician comes out of the embalming room to sell us a really expensive casket.

God, he sounds exactly like Kenneth the Page.

Bobby Jindal should be feared for the opportunistic scum he is. All of my stars to anyone who can track down his rant on The Glen Beck show about how he doesn't care what the Supreme Court says, he's going to chemically castrate all rapists AND, if that doesn't work, he's going to do it physically. Fear Bobby Jindal's ziggurat of justice.
|MrBuddy - 2009-02-26 |
Poor Chris Matthews, his entire performance was so upstaged by the guy giving the speech, hardly anyone even commented on Matthews at all.

When he's not doing Dracula impressions, Jindal casts out demons:
During his years at Brown University, Jindal pursued his Catholic faith with unbridled zeal. Jindal became emotionally involved with a classmate named Susan who had overcome skin cancer and struggled to cope with the suicide of a close friend. Jindal reflected in an article for a Catholic magazine (called “Beating a Demon: Physical Dimensions of Spiritual Warfare”) that “sulfuric” scents hovered over Susan everywhere she went. In the middle of a prayer meeting, Jindal claimed that Susan collapsed and began convulsing on the floor. His prayer partners gathered together on the floor, holding hands and shouting, “Satan, I command you to leave this woman!”
While under the supposed control of satanic demons, Susan lashed out at Jindal and his friends. “Whenever I concentrated long enough to begin prayer, I felt some type of physical force distracting me,” Jindal reflected. “It was as if something was pushing down on my chest, making it very hard for me to breathe… I began to think that the demon would only attack me if I tried to pray or fight back; thus, I resigned myself to leaving it alone in an attempt to find peace for myself.”

This guy should be leading tours of the White House, not running for it.
