Chris Matthews: I feel sorry for Chris Christie’s wife

posted at 1:21 pm on November 8, 2013 by Allahpundit

Via Newsbusters, there are subtle ways to goof on Christie’s weight, there are not so subtle ways, and then there’s this. Matthews has done it before — how can you cut the budget, he wondered, if you can’t cut your portions at supper? — but I can’t remember anyone, left or right, bringing Christie’s wife into it until now. Reminds me of Ace’s post from last fall about the Matthews method, theorizing that Tingles’s signature stream-of-consciousness verbal diarrhea was really just a form of shtick aimed at making him seem more down to earth and blue-collar. He’s not a Beltway carbuncle who’s spent the last 30 years shmoozing with America’s power brokers, he’s the guy on the barstool next to you who likes to jaw about politics over beers. Except he’s not that guy and doesn’t really understand that guy, so what comes out of his mouth often seems dumb, strained, and overly chummy. Here’s Ace’s imitation of Matthews trying to explain Obama’s appeal. It’s slightly too blue to be something he might realistically say on “Hardball,” but in the green room before the show? Pitch perfect:

It’s like he’s just this guy, right? And he knows who he is. And he’s got a little swagger to him, a little Mick Jagger in the jimmy-leg, but not so much that you notice.

But your gal notices.

And this guy, right, he notices your gal, too, and that’s a problem for you, because this guy’s been around.

Bras aren’t a mystery to this guy. He knows a clasp from a hook. He’s touched base. He’s tagged up. He knows his way around a hooter.

And that’s how Obama wins Ohio.

Moronic, but exactly the sort of thing you can imagine would qualify as barstool wisdom to Matthews. Imagine yourself with a beer, trying to watch football on the TV above the bartender’s head, and having that babbled into your ear by a slightly tipsy Tingles. The charitable interpretation of the Christie joke is that he was going for the same vibe — crass, corny, but something that he thought might ingratiate him to the audience in a “I’m a real guy, not above this sort of thing” way. The less charitable interpretation is that, no, it’s not shtick. He really does function on this level and really would find profundity in the idea that Obama got reelected because he’s Jumping Jack Flash or something. Guess which interpretation I’m following.

Matthews is the very definition of the term “jackass,” and there are good reasons why that is the symbol of his party.

bobcalco on November 8, 2013 at 1:23 PM

I feel sorry for your wife, you drunken loon. Do you have an Obama poster above your bed to drool at?

envycat on November 8, 2013 at 1:24 PM

“I mean, use your imagination.”

Should we feel sorry for his wife, and the fact she has to put up with a drunken slob?

Foul man.

I feel sorry for comrade Chris’s shrink.

the strangest thing. if you look at Christie now he has lost a tremendous amount of weight since lapband surgery.

If this is supposed to make me defend Christie……. not gonna work.

Even though Matthews is certifiable. (Hey, that’s covered under OCare, Chrissy!!)

d1carter on November 8, 2013 at 1:35 PM

As crass and juvenile as Tingles repeatedly proves himself to be, there’s practically nothing the MSM can do to or say about Christie that would make me feel empathy for him. He’s a complete fraud from trunk to tail, tap dancing and mugging through every substantive issue. He has major ugly narcissism issues, just like someone else whose name escapes me. He’s anathema to the Constitution on guns, borders, sharia law, the un-ACA (which he refused to litigate), social policy, you name it. When you play chameleon, as he does, don’t expect people to fall in love with what you were yesterday. The Christie dirigible (no, that’s not a NJ Hindenburg reference) will eventually meet up with the laws of nature, and by that time I think everyone except the Rovians will enjoy watching it burn.

Wait, I thought liberals were against fat-shaming.

I really don’t understand the PC rules our betters have imposed on us. Can someone explain them to me?

Christie’s obesity is no joke. In fact, the EEOC in 2010 claimed that obesity was a disability.

EEOC now claims obesity is a disability under ADAAA.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) now claims obesity is a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA). Until now, the courts have routinely rejected general obesity as a “disability” under the ADA and Rehabilitation Act. Cases have required one to show some different underlying medical condition that is a disability and that causes obesity as a “symptom.” Now the EEOC has filed suit, claiming that a company discriminatorily fired an employee because of obesity. The EEOC claims that ever since President George W. Bush authorized the ADA Amendments Act in 2008, the law has a much lower threshold for what constitutes a disability. The EEOC claims that basic obesity, without any other underlying condition, sufficiently impacts the life activities of bending, walking, digestion, cell growth, etc., to qualify as a disability or perceived disability.

In addition, in July of 2013 the O’bama-worshipping AMA adopted a new policy classifying obesity as a disease.

In July, the American Medical Association (AMA) adopted a new policy that officially labels obesity as a disease, “requiring a range of medical interventions to advance obesity treatment and prevention.” According to the AMA’s Council on Science and Public Health, a “disease” is defined as having the following criteria: 1) an impairment of the normal functioning of some aspect of the body; 2) characteristic signs or symptoms; and 3) harm or morbidity.

So Tingles is making jokes about someone who’s disabled. Classy guy.

It’s a continuation of the War On Womenz meme.

As VA just showed us again, Single Women are “married” to the government.

So what kind of woman would want to be married to The Ralph Kramden of politics?

I believe the word Matthews is looking for is smushing as practiced by cast members of Jersey Shore.

Let me blunt. I don’t care if you’re Chris Matthews or Bill O’Reilly, sitting on your ass and babbling into a camera about the doings of men who actually do things is a bi*** job and automatically calls into question your masculinity.

“I have to tell you, you know, it’s part of reporting this case, this election, the feeling most people get when they hear Barack Obama’s speech,” Matthews said. “My, I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don’t have that too often.”

The silence of the lambs trolls is deafening and all-telling.

Schadenfreude on November 8, 2013 at 2:02 PM

I’ve never said this, but for years I’ve felt sorry for CM’s wife, because he’s a big-mouth, crude, and crass, with quite a demeaning attitude towards pretty women that borders on misogyny. And I can’t forget his exchange with Michelle Malkin regarding John Kerry’s 3 purple hearts where he was completely deaf, dumb and blind to the notion that a “self-inflicted wound” usually doesn’t mean “on purpose”, making a complete ass of himself on his own show. Then you read Michelle’s account, where he’s spitting on her (but, not on purpose), and acting like a fool, from the time before the interview, to well afterwards, and I have to trust and credit Michelle’s version.

Paul-Cincy on November 8, 2013 at 2:04 PM

Not giving the man an excuse, but he is a wreck. It all started when he worked for Top O’Neill – another massive boozer.

jake-the-goose on November 8, 2013 at 2:07 PM

It’s like he’s just this guy, right? And he knows who he is. And he’s got a little swagger to him, a little Mick Jagger in the jimmy-leg, but not so much that you notice.

Bras Azzes aren’t a mystery to this guy. He knows a clasp Reggie from a hook Michelle. He’s touched base. He’s tagged up. He knows his way around a hooter bathhouse.

I’m surprised that Matthews can take the President’s knob out long enough to do his show…

Kensington on November 8, 2013 at 4:51 PM

Regarding the endless jokes about GWB’s lack of intelligence, his IQ was estimated to be 125.

Of course Obama obsessively guards his records, grades and test scores, but the experts estimate his IQ at 128. Yeah, a three-point advantage to our “brilliant” president (although Bush should get extra points for the fact that he actually loves this country).

Some of the commenters deriding Matthews are the very same Christie haters who never miss an opportunity to mock him, especially for his weight.

It’s childish and classless when Matthews does it, and it’s childish and classless when the HA rightwingers do it. But then people always lash out when they are afraid, and the conservative base is petrified that Christie will further marginalize them–although they have already done a splendid job of marginalizing themselves.

Meredith on November 8, 2013 at 4:51 PM

Nobody’s afraid that Christie will “marginalize” them, Meredith. Some of us are afraid that he’ll get the nomination and do as good a job with it as Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney did.

Kensington on November 8, 2013 at 4:52 PM

The less charitable interpretation is that, no, it’s not shtick. He really does function on this level and really would find profundity in the idea that Obama got reelected because he’s Jumping Jack Flash or something. Guess which interpretation I’m following.

I’ll take “he’s a moron” for $1000:
