Chris Matthews Mocks Rush Limbaugh as the 'Guy From Deliverance'

Chris Matthews Mocks Rush Limbaugh as the 'Guy From Deliverance' By Scott Whitlock Created 11/01/2012 - 6:17pm

MSNBC's Chris Matthews on Thursday lashed out at Rush Limbaugh and his criticism of Chris Christie, deriding the conservative radio host as "the guy from Deliverance." Matthews played a clip of Limbaugh joking, "New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has decided to play the role of a Greek column today for President Obama."

Matthews fumed, "He reminds me more of the guy from Deliverance– 'Squeal like a pig,'" a reference to the sodomy scene in the 1972 film. Matthews followed up, "...It just seems like he's squealing like a pig essentially here."

The Hardball anchor introduced the clip by ridiculously asserting, "On another side of the planet, and on the side of the Manichean division between good and evil, here is Rush Limbaugh going after Chris Christie's kind words for the President."

Matthews previously smeared Ann Coulter's audience as straight out of Deliverance.

The host mocked, "Let's listen to the walrus underwater," an attack he's also used before.

A transcript of the November 1 exchange follows:

5:20

CHRIS MATTHEWS: On another side of the planet, and on the side of the Manichean division between good and evil, here is Rush Limbaugh going after Chris Christie's kind words for the President. Let's listen to the walrus under water. [Makes walrus sound.] Let's listen to him right now. Here is Rush Limbaugh.

RUSH LIMBAUGH: New Jersey governor Chris Christie has decided to play the role of a Greek column today for President Obama. Obama and Chris Christie will tour the Jersey Shore. Chris Christie is the only Republican-- I mean not just praising Obama. I mean it's-- it's-- let's just put it this way. Is it wrong for one man to love another man? But that man love out there it's isolated to the state of New Jersey. Well, just tell you what I have observed casually with my busy broadcast eyes and my cochlear implant-aided ears.

MATTHEWS: He reminds me more of the guy from Deliverance– "Squeal like a pig." –than anybody. Anyway, this whole thought here, without getting too much into the movie references, Jeff and Howard, it just seems like he's squealing like a pig essentially here. He knows he lost the day and he just wants to complain about it, this bromance, suggestions of gay behaviors. It's absurd. It's high school.

HOWARD FINEMAN: Rush is sort of the kind of air raid siren for the Republicans. When he's creaming like that, you know something has happened, something significant has happened.

The irony about this is Matthews has never reached as many people as he did when Rush invited him to host his show.

What a disgusting excuse for a human being he is. A real POS.

I’ll bet Chrissie has been told to squeal like a pig a few time in his days.

And therein lies the proof of the many orders of magnitude of difference between the number of Rush’s followers and those of little Chrissie boy.

I’m hoping that on election night the guys with the white coats and a straight jacket arrive on the set of MSNBC and put Chris out of his misery. He has some serious mental issues.

Give the guy break, he’s hurting for ratings like the rest of the crew on MSNBC. If it gets attention, he succeeded.

Exactly. I'm sure Chrissy would give anything to have an audience of 15 - 20 million, like Rush. His paltry 1/2 million - if even - doesn't represent much.

Yeah, we’ll. Rush was clearly tense today and fed up. The good thing is that he probably won’t be tomorrow. On the other hand, Chris Mathews is a slobbering idiot every day of his life.

Ned Beatty did a great job in the film, but I would find the film much more enjoyable if Chrissy played the role. This river don’t go to no Aintree boy.

Probably not. It’s just the reaction Prissy wants. The worst thing Rush can do to him is to ignore his tantrums.

Looking at the ratings etc, one may get the opinion that NBC keeps this ‘thing’ going so as the assorted fruits and nuts that man the ‘desks’ are there in a sort of ‘grouping’ mode.

Leave them to their own and they won’t be ‘begging’ to get on the air of the ‘Mother Station’.

Though if these clowns could be subjected to a large audience, maybe the public will finally wake up.

Little Chrissie Mathews is just Jelous of Rush Limbaugh because more people listen to the Rush Limbaugh Show in 5 minutes than listen to the entire show that Mathews Hosts.

Never forget that Chrissie Matthews was successfully replaced by an orange traffic cone. Chrissie thinks DELIVERANCE was a love story.

Nope, Rush will ignore chrissy. Why lower himself to toying with a lunatic?

If Rush responds in any way, it may be a little bumper rotation Deliverance song.

Rush usually ignores this crap because he knows people like Chrissy want attention and up their ratings.

Here's how it will happen: A caller will ask Rush tomorrow: "Rush, did you hear what Chris Matthews said about you?" and Rush will laugh and say "Chris who?"

Did Chris play banjo as a kid? Could he be one half of the dueling banjos? Maybe that is why he is so defensive.

It's going to be an interesting Tuesday evening, watching this puddle of Leftist vomit slowly come to the realization that Black Jesus has been given the bum's rush by the electorate. His drooling, screaming, and hyperventilating will earn a permanent YouTube bookmark in my browser.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

If it’s a blowout for Romney little Chrissy’s head might actually explode on air like in the 1980’s movie Scanners. It might actually be worth getting cable to watch his meltdown.

This Deliverance stuff still bothers me after seeing that movie many years ago. I canoe the Elk river some in Tennessee and I always got an uneasy feeling putting in on the river at daybreak 23 miles from the nearest civilization. Deliverance always comes to mind, especially with the early morning fog. It’s very creepy and unnerving. I thought once about getting a banjo and hiding downriver a ways from the put in point and strumming it a few times as canoe parties came by just to watch their reaction, lol. It would have scared me bad if it happened to me.

Chrissy has sold his soul to the lowest bidder....MSNBC and will do anything for attention. I am surprised that someone was even watching Chrissy to report that he was mocking anyone...Come election night, Chrissy’s head may be tingling so much that it will implode...and I might TIVO MSNBC just to record that!

Chrissy will be squealing like a pig long about 8PM CST next Tues night when the election is called for Mitt. I’m going to email him at that moment with a four word message. “Squeal like a pig”. LOL!!

Let’s hope Matthews is committed to an asylum for the insane soon. He appears to need treatment for dementia that has manifested itself in stupidity, hallucinations, and inability to tell the truth. Perhaps they will have a therapist on staff who can teach him to stop spitting and slobbering when he speaks!
