Have you learned to tune your t.v. immediately to MSNBC after any political event? If you haven’t, you would have missed an epic rant tonight against Obama from *up tingles* Chris Matthews where he chastises Obama for simply “enduring” through the presidential debate:

“I don’t know what...

Maybe I should change the name of this series to the Saturday Night Chris Matthews Card Game, since Matthews is such a frequent topic lately.

Matthews doesn’t, apparently, understand that he was being mocked when Bill Maher asked whether Matthews was overly aggressive in charging racism (via RCP):

Bill Maher, host: “Chris Matthews. Are you taking...

Come on Chris, just say that Mitt Romney is whipping up racism.  You spent almost the entire RNC doing that.  It’s your claim to fame, your reason to be on television, your destiny.

Why are you being so coy now, calling Romney “arrogant” for challenging Obama, as if no political candidate has...

last night in the Saturday Night Card Game, in which I suggested that Matthews’ hyperbolic, non-stop accusations of Republican racism were a marketing ploy to secure himself a coveted media niche.

With the benefit of some hindsight, I think I was too kind in my analysis.

I think Matthews is looking to provoke a...

Chris Matthews has gone farther and more aggressively than any other major television figure in the accusation that the Romney campaign and its supporters are using racism as a core campaign tool against Barack Obama.

Everything has become racist to Matthews.  The use of the term “Chicago.”  Arguments over Obama weakening welfare-to-work requirements.

Even when he...

Chris Matthews is pushing the race card really hard, as is MNSBC and much of the mainstream media.

I sense panic, complete and utter panic.

Everything is a race whistle to this crowd (is using the term “crowd” racist, Chris, or at least a dog whistle?).

Matthews came loaded for bear yesterday with Reince...

Why is Chris Matthews portraying Obama as “The Other”?

How often have we heard that portraying Obama as out of touch with the American people constitutes a racially tinged and undertoned use of Otherness?

Just the other day Rick Perry was accused of invoking Otherness when he said Obama had been privileged:

Rick Perry, seeking to paint  President Obama with an “otherness” brush from...

Chris Matthews is on Hardball right now making the argument that the assassination of John Kennedy was the result of right wing hate speech which incited people to violence. Even though Lee Harvey Oswald was an avowed communist who lived previously in the Soviet Union. According to Matthews, right wing hate...
