Bubble Boy

Chris Matthews is, as I've noted before, an asshole.

War Room observes that he's an out-of-touch one as well:

As Media Matters notes, Matthews was proclaiming as late as November that "everybody sort of likes the president, except for the real whack-jobs, maybe on the left." News to the contrary seemed to sink in for Matthews earlier this week, when he had to come to terms with a Wall Street Journal/NBC News Poll that found that 50 percent of the public has a "somewhat negative" or "very negative" view of the president. Matthews read the poll results on the air and declared himself "amazed."

Now, it seems, he's just bewildered. As we noted Thursday, respondents in a new Pew Research Center poll used words liked "incompetent" to describe Bush, and Matthews says he just can't believe it. "I checked this twice," he said on last night's show. "I couldn‘t believe it, but it's true -- forty-eight percent of the people responding to this poll used such words as 'incompetent,' 'idiot,' and 'liar' to describe our president. Kate O'Beirne, what happened to respect?"

What happened to respect? What happened to RESPECT??

Where do I start?

Sort of like him? No.
You mean personally? Oh, still No.
Me, a whack-job? Well, at least I'm in touch with reality.
Think he's an incompetent, lying, immoral jackass? Yes.

I don't think that poll had a bad enough word for what i think of him.
