Video: Chris Matthews pretty tired of “jackasses” goofing on him for getting a thrill over Obama

posted at 8:41 pm on May 24, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via the Examiner, what’s the best part? The palpable bitterness in his tone or the fact that he’s taking his frustration out on the most mild-mannered creature in the media universe, a C-SPAN anchor? As you watch him solemnly lament the fact that a man might be mocked for Loving America Too Much, remember that not only does he work for a network that sneers openly at “teabaggers” and their silly tricorned ideas about saving the country before it implodes fiscally, he once dedicated a full hour to scaremongering about grassroots conservatives being some sort of proto-militia. You have to endure that while he has to endure occasional “leg tingles” jokes. And meanwhile, the rap sheet for MSNBC’s darlings in OWS gets longer and longer and longer. We all love America in different ways, I guess.

Make sure to watch to the end for him idly wondering about the “orientation” of people who accuse him of feeling tingly when he listens to O. That’s the first clip; the second clip, from today’s “Hardball,” is — well, it’s just the greatest political interview ever.

Awww…… POOR widiw prissy !

Go bang your prez. Imam blow up doll closet poof !

cableguy615 on May 24, 2012 at 8:43 PM

It’s you who are the JACKASS, Chrissy.

wildcat72 on May 24, 2012 at 8:43 PM

You gotta’ know this is grating on him.

I cannot wait to see him reacting to the Jeopardy quips that must be on the way.

cozmo on May 24, 2012 at 8:43 PM

Touchy touchy. If you don’t want to be taunted, don’t be tingly.

Will the horses ass become self aware?

tom daschle concerned on May 24, 2012 at 8:45 PM

“I have traditional values”

Never has Matthews told a more bald-faced lie.

Stoic Patriot on May 24, 2012 at 8:46 PM

Didn’t he also say it was his job to make sure President Obama was successful? No, Tingles. Your job is to make sure the President, whoever he / she is, is held accountable.

Mitoch55 on May 24, 2012 at 8:46 PM

Thrill up his leg Mathews has a lot of nerve calling people Jackasses with his woeful Jeopardy scores..

TonyR on May 24, 2012 at 8:47 PM

Own it, Tingles.

Stu Gotts on May 24, 2012 at 8:48 PM

This is the Jeopardy champion who mocks Sarah Palin’s intelligence?

aunursa on May 24, 2012 at 8:49 PM

What a strange remark to say anyway you slice it there Chrissy.

Had you seen spine it would not have created the oh so easy opportunity for mockery.

I wonder if Chrissy would have thought it was great if a GOPer with such a lame background became President.

CW on May 24, 2012 at 8:49 PM

“Why do you like the reptile house?”

LOLOLOLOLOLOL – Matthews off his meds.

Oops. My mistake.

hepcat on May 24, 2012 at 8:55 PM

That was actually very funny and revealing.

He’s basically said the Tea Party is the Klan, that he gets aroused by men, and then caps it off by suggesting his detractors are homosexuals?

Awesome.

CorporatePiggy on May 24, 2012 at 8:55 PM

EEEEEE AWWWWW, EEEEEE AWWWWW.

Irony alert since isn’t the symbol of the Communist Democrat party the Jackass?

PappyD61 on May 24, 2012 at 8:56 PM

The tingles become become an itching…

The itching becomes a burning…

He cannot pull his leg out of the box. He has to prove he is a man.

StubbleSpark on May 24, 2012 at 8:57 PM

Since President Whistle-all-the-Time is the first “gay” president according to Andrew Sullivan maybe some of those right wingers ought to be asking what specifically gave him that tingle?

PappyD61 on May 24, 2012 at 8:57 PM

If there were one media figure who needed to be mocked – well, aside from Jon Stewart – it’d be Chris Matthews.

I bet Sarah Palin would pound him at Jeopardy. Actually, I’d pay to watch that.

Sharr on May 24, 2012 at 8:58 PM

I cannot wait to see him reacting to the Jeopardy quips that must be on the way.

Yeah, in many ways those are even more embarrassing…or would be to anybody with self-awareness.

It’s his blue dress.

the second clip

We need more hard hitting political journalists like Chris Matthews.

*rolls eyes*

There was no way no how he was going to let Gingrich talk about Obama’s record.

Flora Duh on May 24, 2012 at 9:01 PM

Anyway to get Chrissy to read this post? That would be a schweet thing to do for him. Maybe tweet Tingles. One of you tweeters.

You have to love Chrissy making a gay joke .

I wonder how he really feels about homosexuals./

fat, pasty, white liberal douchebag is totally, hopelessly in love with another man who has just recently come out in favor of gay marriage…. but he’s married…. its all just…. a bit weird.

maineconservative on May 24, 2012 at 9:04 PM

Charles Johnson?

Flora Duh on May 24, 2012 at 9:02 PM

Johnson is blue. Dark blue.

hepcat on May 24, 2012 at 9:04 PM

The absurd thing is John King and radical leftist CNN playing the moderate by pointing at centrist Fox to their right and radical leftist but slightly more worn on the sleeve MSNBC on the left. We need at least one conservative network to appear that would shift the balance and situate Fox in the middle, as far as this conversation goes.

Buddahpundit on May 24, 2012 at 9:05 PM

Bill Whittle, of Declaration Entertainment, made a video entitled “Walking Into Mordor” in which he points out that the Left loves to label all of us who disagree with them as ‘zenophobes’ and they often say that this fear of the foreign or ‘the other’ is why many of us won’t vote for Obama. Whittle also points out that the condition that is the OPPOSITE of zenophobia is OIKOPHOBIA. Oikophobia is an unreasoning fear of THE FAMILIAR… which translates to a fear of one’s own culture… of one’s own people and country…and it devolves into self hatred.

I think that Chris Matthews suffers from a severe case of OIKOPHOBIA. If you get the chance… check out Whittle’s video. It explains much in the way of how the oikophobe thinks.

Alinsky Rule No 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.

Pile it on. Every day. Every night. Live by the sword, die by the sword Prissy.

I wonder if Steve Scully has ever been attacked like that in an interview. He took it well, understanding instantaneously that yes, the mockers were living inside Chrissy head rent free.

the entire panel/audience was laughing. It really is amazing, he does read blogs like HA…he’s not getting that from NYT.

Or maybe he watches Hannity every night…lol

Did he really say he’s researching Ronald Reagan?? That I find the scariest part of the clip.

kurtzz3 on May 24, 2012 at 9:32 PM

Notice how the jackass C-SPAN reporter gave Tingles all the time he wanted to answer without interrupting or talking over top of or correcting or otherwise making himself the questioner and answerer, as Tingles ALWAYS does? Tingles thinks very highly of himself and it would take a barrage of return verbal fire to shut Tingles up, after which he would have hurt feelings and a very deep feeling of inadequacy and low self-esteem. It needs to happen, though.

Oy, Tingles how’s that thrill? What, don’t like being associated with your own love for your hero? Need the waaaaahmbulance?

Yeah, he can talk about “jackass” takes one to know one.

Tingles – nickname forever. Same with ol’ Pants Crease Brooks. They wanted to show how impressed they were with the creep, and they did. Now let them own it.

Gingotts on May 24, 2012 at 9:40 PM

Oh, what’s wrong, Chris? You go on TV every day and talk and talk and talk, and suddenly it’s a problem when people listen? What exactly were you EXPECTING?

Hey, here’s an idea, maybe you could pretend that people are going to pay attention to what you say, and temper your words accordingly.

The Schaef on May 24, 2012 at 9:41 PM

He’s only angry now that he’s learned he’s been victim to premature tingling.

Shiny_Tiara on May 24, 2012 at 9:47 PM

The tantrums are coming fast and furious these days. Heh.

txhsmom on May 24, 2012 at 9:52 PM

My favorite part of this idiocy is that Matthews bristles at the “Tingles” name when he actually used the term “thrill” which is actually worse.

Dr. Carlo Lombardi on May 24, 2012 at 9:55 PM

Tinkles Matthews is even funnier when his leg gets all riled up. Chrissy wears his emotions on his leg. He knows that on his tombstone will be nothing but a loop of his “thrill” moment … and by then the Retarded Dog-Eater will be understood to have been the most retarded, ridiculous joke of an America-hating politician who eventually ended up serving one term of 50 to life in a neat orange jumpsuit.

But, it probably sends a good vibration up Matthews’ leg to know that he will likely live long into the future, being a laughing stock in history books for thousands of years – as the damage wrought by these idiots will make people shudder for millenia.

That leg thrill insanity will be seen by people and studied by psychologists many, many years from now – in a context that the Matthews family is probably better off being ignorant of, because it ain’t going to be pretty.

ThePrimordialOrderedPair on May 24, 2012 at 9:57 PM

Chris Matthews and Levi Johntson… What a waste of column inches.

davo on May 24, 2012 at 9:58 PM

Which just goes to prove that with a little persistence, and a lot more fun, we got to him so much so that he’s actually now publicly crying about it!

What he knows is that the “laughing stock” incident is his legacy for life!

Heh!

Fuquay Steve on May 24, 2012 at 10:04 PM

Does Chris get the same tingles as he did when Tip O’Neill got him alone in the room?

Buck up Chris, if Elizabeth Warren gets elected you’ll be the second most mocked person in Washington.

NoDonkey on May 24, 2012 at 10:13 PM

Chrissy gets on TV and insults millions of people every night and it bothers him when a few of those people have the opportunity to return the favor? What does he expect? He should be happy no one has decked him.

HotAirian on May 24, 2012 at 10:24 PM

Wow, he’s looking old. Damn.

Ward Cleaver on May 24, 2012 at 10:30 PM

The guy that gets a tingle when he listens to another man reading a speech is questioning someone’s sexual orientation?
I think Chrissy is also a big admirer of Obama’s smile.

How could so many people make complete fools of themselves over one man? Says way more about them than the con man they worship.

bailey24 on May 24, 2012 at 10:32 PM

Is a thrill up the leg a euphemism for sexual arousal?

jomondo44 on May 24, 2012 at 10:32 PM

Did you catch that homophobe comment he made about right-wingers misquoting him? If not, listen again – it was his last sentence.

poppieseeds on May 24, 2012 at 10:45 PM

He seems to be pretty wee-wee’d up.

SomeCallMeJohn on May 24, 2012 at 10:48 PM

Actually tingle sounds more innocent than thrill. What a douche.

If I didn’t visit HotAir, I wouldn’t even remember that Prissy Hissy Chrissy exists. He’s such a non-entity.

MisterElephant on May 24, 2012 at 11:09 PM

Guess that’s fair. Conservatives are tired of the Jackass Chris Matthews goofing on conservatives, particularly Palin, the Tea Party, and anyone who is to the right of Chairman Mao.

Traditional values? Yeah, if, by “values”, you mean those of Stalin, Lenin, and Marx.

AZfederalist on May 24, 2012 at 11:24 PM

Face it, Chrissy, you want him.

Hey Chris – you bought it, you name it.

Since you have no problem embarrassing yourself nightly on national television, take your whining to someone who gives a crap.

Your boy is toast. Deal with it.

Sharke on May 24, 2012 at 11:43 PM

Chris praescre, Chris sycopahanta.

The “Critique immediately following Obama’s ’04 Convention speech” makes Mr. Matthews look less like a genius for predicting great things, including a possible presidency for the source of the “thrill up his leg”.

In a chilling support for the fact that you don’t need a conspiracy when you have consensus, the commentators said that it was widely spoken that “…he would be our first black president…”.

Moreover, I could not find Mr. Matthews saying that in 2004, except given his charge at MSNBC, it was a predictable response. And David Brooks and the others loved him just as much.

Then they all claimed to know his “biography” including the wrong title on the Harvard Law Review.

Hysterical fun watching these fools.

IlikedAUH2O on May 24, 2012 at 11:59 PM

It’s a pretty good sign Obama is in trouble that this sycophant now feels a need to distance himself from all the public fawning over him he once did.
