Metaphorically speaking, of course.

The clip picks up with Matthews asking John Edwards about Kerry’s “botched joke,” leading Elizabeth Edwards to interject that many politicians aren’t funny, including her husband. Chris gave the “hush woman” reaction, questioning Edwards, “Does she bite your balls like this when you go home?”

But his risqué remarks didn’t stop there. Matthews pondered, “What is this with the equal marriages? Why do people marry their equals? It used to be different. What happened to the Stepford wives? The good old days?” The audience, made up of mostly college students, gave him the “fricking hiss” after his sexist comment.

The only thing more ugly than Matthews’s sexism is his laugh, which you’ll hear around the 40 second mark.
