Well, I guess a mafia metaphor is better than the David Shuster pimp metaphor that aired on the same network. Maybe Chris Matthews has been reading up on “Arkancide.”

Matthews does rip off a big HA! on the way to making one good point that Team Hillary won’t like: You can’t win a campaign against Mr. Sunshine when your central theme is essentially “Don’t get your hopes up.”

Update: Hillary has one less caped crusader in her pocket.
