Video: Chris Matthews drops F-bomb on Imus during Bush bash

posted at 10:15 am on February 7, 2007 by Ian

Chris Matthews, who is in the advanced stages of BDS, dropped the “f-bomb” during his slam on President Bush and his ranch. After the segment, listen to the commentary of Imus’ producers. One suggests Matthews would put on diapers and drive 900 miles to abduct Cheney.

Transcript:

“We love good mayors because we love our cities and Giuliani is the city guy, and I’m so sick of southern guys with ranches running this country. I want a guy to run for president who doesn’t have a fucking — I’m sorry, a ranch. Wouldn’t that be good, Don, a guy who wasn’t on the ranch during Katrina, he was on the street corner answering questions?”

Imus to producer after the clip > “We just love the fact that Chris is criminally insane and yet wields complete power of influence over millions of Americans everyday. Chris is just great. He’s just as nutz as I.”

Now that there’s your jounalistic integrity for ya’.

(I think we could all benefit from a rebuttal delivered by Larry the Cable Guy right about now.)

CyberCipher on February 7, 2007 at 10:28 AM

Typical foul mouthed liberal. No surprise there. Why is he so opposed to people with ranches? Didn’t all the best presidents have a ranch or farm? I guess Chris would rather have a city fella like Newsome as president. Figures.

Guardian on February 7, 2007 at 10:33 AM

So much for civility from anywhere on the Left’s talking outposts. Marcotte and Pandagon, for example. Or Wonkette. Or many over at the PuffingTons Host.

To throw around your liberal cred, you have to drop obscenities as fast as possible.

Nethicus on February 7, 2007 at 10:33 AM

Chrissie is one step away from being certified for a rubber room and Imus will possibly be his roomie.

DoctorDentons on February 7, 2007 at 10:35 AM

Doesn’t Imus own a ranch? LOL

bj1126 on February 7, 2007 at 10:38 AM

Somebody call Andrea Mitchell and see if she still thinks Chrissy is not biased.

BacaDog on February 7, 2007 at 10:38 AM

Well, at least he didn’t have a wardrobe malfunction, we can ALL be thankful for that.

Alden Pyle on February 7, 2007 at 10:39 AM

Chris has definitely lost it.

vcferlita on February 7, 2007 at 10:42 AM

It’s hard to project spittle on your guest and articulate the consonant ‘f’ sound at the same time, so in that sense, I’m all for it.

I’m so sick of southern guys

Typical elitist attitude towards the South. I recommend people check out the new PIG guide published by Regnery: The Politically Incorrect Guide to the South.

I want a guy to run for president who doesn’t have a fucking — I’m sorry, a ranch.

What is it with liberals and foul mouths? Most people have stopped cursing in normal conversation by the time they are late teenagers, but liberals don’t ever grow up.

My guess is that Chris Matthews lacks an education and a vocabulary. Probably the only classes he took in college were journalism trade classes taught by revolutionaries.

As most liberals have only been taught by postmodernists and are thus uneducated (they have never self educated themselves by studying the facts of history, Western civ, science, etc. or questioned their socialist professors), he probably lacks the vocabulary to express himself more fluently than using f*** in every other sentence.

januarius on February 7, 2007 at 10:45 AM

Just keepin’ real…what’s a good rant without any f-bombs?

JaHerer22 on February 7, 2007 at 10:45 AM

This is how liberals speak…nothing new here. I’m no holier-than-thou type about cursing, but it would seem they can’t get their points across without dropping f-bombs.

So I guess Ted Turner is out. http://money.cnn.com/2006/10/03/news/economy/pluggedin_gunther_bison.fortune/index.htm“>

Sven on February 7, 2007 at 10:47 AM

I hear Edwards may be needing a new blogmaster. Sounds like Chris is qualified.

bloggless on February 7, 2007 at 10:49 AM

Just in case the link doesn’t work.
Bozeman, Montana (FORTUNE) — “I don’t want to own every ranch,” Ted Turner once said. “I just want to own the ranch next door.”

This is the kind of thinking that has made Turner, the restless 67-year-old cable television billionaire, the largest private landowner in America. Turner, the former vice chairman of Time Warner (Charts) who left the company’s board in May, owns 15 ranches in seven states, covering 1.9 million acres. That’s 3,000 square miles – bigger than Delaware or Rhode Island. (Time Warner is the parent company of Fortune and CNNMoney.com.)

Sven on February 7, 2007 at 10:50 AM

Wasn’t Nagin in dallas buying his wife and child a condo? What about Edwards new digs? When did the building of that begin? I guess it isnt really a ranch as much as it is an estate, a great big f’ing estate.

Obama

Lieberman and Landrieu were joined by Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., a presidential hopeful who took most the opportunity offered by a swarming international media to say he was “embarrassed” by the White House’s handling of Katrina and its aftermath.

Embarrased by what?

Powell also butted heads with Obama over the question of whether Louisiana had received its fair share of federal aid in comparison with Mississippi. When Powell helped Louisiana augment an initially insufficient $6.2 billion with another $4.2 billion, he said it was based on what the state actually needed at the time and had nothing to do with making its share equitable in relation to Mississippi’s.
Obama said that wasn’t a sufficient answer.

Powell noted it was Congress — not the White House or the federal agencies — that said no state could get more than 54 percent of the federal aid. However, the Congress at that time was Republican-controlled, and the new Democratic leadership isn’t accepting responsibility.

Pam on February 7, 2007 at 10:56 AM

Matthews has been increasingly exorcised as the Libby trial goes on. Appears the VP’s office was riveted by the Hardball reporting on the whole Joe Wilson thing. Matthews is obsessed with finding out why the VP did not get, or will not admit to getting, a report from Wilson after Wilson’s trip to Africa. (Tenet’s answer on this: “Ask the Vice President”)

Curiouser and curiouser.

I nearly choked on my bagel this AM when I heard this. You couldn’t really tell if Imus was upset or tickled. What a world.

honora on February 7, 2007 at 11:00 AM

uhh…so i guess msnbc doesn’t have a delay?

freakagriep on February 7, 2007 at 11:03 AM

BacaDog on February 7, 2007 at 10:38 AM

Actually, this ranch comment was made in the context of CM explaining why he thought Rudy was such a grest candidate. You know, Rudy the Republican.

honora on February 7, 2007 at 11:03 AM

I love how the new euphemism for crazy is to “don a diaper and drive 900 miles” to do something.

BelchSpeak on February 7, 2007 at 11:06 AM

One suggests Matthews would put on diapers and drive 900 miles to abduct Cheney.

He wouldn’t wear a diaper. Woudn’t be field expedient. A manpon, maybe, but not a diaper.

Kid from Brooklyn on February 7, 2007 at 11:10 AM

Hey all – Who cares what he says- no one watches Hardball – his ratings are as low as Gidget reruns. Drudge published the Cable news ratings yesterday and Hardball didn’t make the list. My best guess is that Chris never stopped smoking pot, and is frozen in time – 1969. He talks over people, can’t listen and if a guest answers no to one of his trap questions he just keeps talking. His comment magnifies liberal class snobbery. A small part of me feels sorry for this idiot – little toe.

iam7545 on February 7, 2007 at 11:15 AM

What kind of questions would one answer on the street corner during Katrina? Gee Mr. President, big f*&%in’ hurricane eh?

doginblack on February 7, 2007 at 11:27 AM

BacaDog on February 7, 2007 at 10:38 AM

Perfect! But she would lie her way out of this one too. NO ONE at nbc or msnbc is biased. They’re so balanced ya see.
Their hate holds no bounds, as long as you agree with them.

Welcome back Ms. Honora…you missed some great stuff….but you probably know that.

Thank you shooter. Had lots of family stuff going on. Later.

honora on February 7, 2007 at 11:31 AM

Well, I’m a southern guy without a f***ing ranch, but I still hate the guy. And by the way, all you Yankee tossers can shove your hair removal creams and your mocha lattes.

Mark V. on February 7, 2007 at 11:35 AM

Liberals have already shown that the standards of speech that apply to others never apply to them. That’s why liberals get upset when a Republican utters the f-word in a private conversation but they all rush to the defense when a liberal uses obsentities in public.

Heh.

Jaibones on February 7, 2007 at 11:46 AM

Yeah, Matthews is a sniveling pansy, whatever. I just can’t get past the video of Imus. Living in Chicago, it’s easy to forget he used to be alive.

What on earth is a dead man, dressed up in a drugstore cowboy outfit and a wig doing on the radio in D.C.?

It’s stunning, really.

Jaibones on February 7, 2007 at 11:50 AM

Typical foul mouthed liberal. No surprise there. Why is he so opposed to people with ranches? Didn’t all the best presidents have a ranch or farm?

Matthews is jealous because he can not have sheep in the city.

Wade on February 7, 2007 at 11:53 AM

Didn’t he use to be on tv? So now he is relagted to calling in to other peoples’ talk shows. Well I hope he bounces back and maybe he can substitute for Colmes sometimes.
BTW i hear a little over 4 mil will get you Air Amerika. Michael Vick gets more then that for completing 10 passes in the same game.

Guardian on February 7, 2007 at 10:33 AM

Eisenhower, LBJ, Carter, RR, W. Those are the ones I can recall.

honora on February 7, 2007 at 11:59 AM

Saw it live this morning. God bless TIVO – I was able to rewind and play it for my better half. The fumbling reaction afterward was priceless, especially as they’re discussing whether they bleeped it.

Forget politics, forget bias … what about plain old professionalism? He ought to be embarrassed. He makes his living using words with precision (theoretically, at least). That he can’t do better is just telling.

I laughed my fool head off, but I wasn’t laughing with him – I was laughing at him.

—-

And no, Honora, you goof: Jimmy Carter’s peanut farm does not count as a “ranch.” Since I’m still laughing at your idiocy regarding recent presidential history (how’d LBJ’s reelection go again?), do you really think you should be commenting on that issue?

Professor Blather on February 7, 2007 at 12:07 PM

Manna for Mark Levin – couldn’t ask for more from his ‘beloved’ MSNBC.

Entelechy on February 7, 2007 at 12:12 PM

We love good mayors because we love our cities and Giuliani is the city guy, and I’m so sick of southern guys with ranches running this country. I want a guy to run for president who doesn’t have a fucking — I’m sorry, a ranch. Wouldn’t that be good, Don, a guy who wasn’t on the ranch during Katrina, he was on the street corner answering questions?”

Was he talking about Giuliana answering questions on the street corner during Katrina? What kind of questions would be asked of Giuliani about Katrina? Katrina happened in New Orleans, not New York.

Matthews has almost completely lost it. He starts ranting and doesn’t even know what he is saying. Incidentally, he used the “S” word on his own program a couple of weeks ago. Why doesn’t the FCC hit the bastard with a $250,000 fine? If either of the incidents had happened on Fox you could bet your sweet “_ss” they would be filing court papers.

Matthews needs some real good professional help (really)before he totally flips out and hurts somebody.

OBX Pete on February 7, 2007 at 12:15 PM

Could you imagine if like Michelle or Bill O, acted like that on the Daily Show or some other liberal show.

That would be F’ing, I’m sorry, hilarious. I swear you can almost hear CM’s head spinning.

CHRIS F***ING MATTHEWS

Professor Blather on February 7, 2007 at 12:07 PM

The question from Guardian was:

Didn’t all the best presidents have a ranch or farm?

Carter had a farm, as did Eisenhower. What a knee slapper, huh?

honora on February 7, 2007 at 12:31 PM

I remember when CM guest hosted for Rush one day. He seemed so calm and thoughtful.

He hasn’t gone down hill. He’s fallen off a cliff.

GT on February 7, 2007 at 12:34 PM

If, I remember correctly, didn’t Chris work for Jimmy Carter that “worst” ex-prez? And, talking about ranches/farms, what do you call that “spread” owned by Edwards, Kennedy, et.al?
They don’t call them ranches/farms in the northeast, they call them “compounds”, you know, as in “stay the hell away from me and my property”. They don’t grow or raise anything but leftwing loons in compounds. Too much money in them thar spreads!

What an ass.

But excellent observation here:

One suggests Matthews would put on diapers and drive 900 miles to abduct Cheney.

This astronaut story has provided the late night shows (and everyone here) with jokes for a long time. Haha, putting on a diaper…. and driving 900 miles. How do you top that?

This is one of those “what has become of our civilization” moments. I am convinced that this story would not have garnered a fraction of the publicity it has received without the diaper bit. Oy.

Haha, thanks for the compliment Entelechy, but my hosting company has screwed something up in my database and I’m not a technical person on that end so I can’t do anything with my blog at this stage of the game… otherwise I’d consider it. Probably like a 5 or 10 minute fix on my server, but I wouldn’t know where to begin. You aren’t a tech chick are ya?

RightWinged on February 7, 2007 at 4:14 PM

Let me get this straight… One F’s up and the others immediately forgive him and then they stroke each other over the matter.

Who watches this Albanian goat rodeo?

RW, I’m a ‘chick’ who loves technology. I use computers as the day is long. Used to program, and be responsible for computer applications training, in the medical field, globally. However, I don’t know much about the technical details of networks, servers and especially the web. I have the benefit of certified help in these domains.

Pity, we have to miss out on so much fun :)

Entelechy on February 7, 2007 at 4:38 PM

I had the impression Imus got so cranked over Mathews comment because he (Imus) owns a ranch, albeit in the South West.

CM in a diaper behind a wheel….what a sight.

91Veteran on February 7, 2007 at 6:24 PM

What? Matthews is an hysterical liberal bastard?

This is news?

JackM on February 7, 2007 at 6:31 PM

OBX Pete, thanks for the correction. Chris didn’t learn with Tip then, Tip, as I remember could work with all sides and get things done.

sharinlite on February 7, 2007 at 6:42 PM

Is’nt this the third or fourth time Matthews has “accidentaly” cursed on Imus? I’ts plausible that MSNBC is having him do it on purpose because Imus’s show is so mind-numbingly boring.

forged rite on February 7, 2007 at 7:15 PM

Chris Matthews is a washed up low rent weasel and a punk.

Easy to work with someone when your party has had control for 40 years, and no foreseeable possibility of that changing.

You either work with us (do what we say) or you get nothing.

91Veteran on February 7, 2007 at 9:23 PM

He’s just s stupid bore. Maybe when the men with the white coats come to pick him up, they can take him for a nice long ride in the country. Then he can see why MEN who own ranches do not worry about what little children say about them. They just laugh and go about their work.

Typical lib, can’t win on issues so cursing and shouting over others makes them think they are the more intelligent.

Peace Out

jdsmith0021 on February 7, 2007 at 9:32 PM
