Note to Chris Matthews: when seeking to slam Republicans for their supposed ignorance of science, try not to expose your own. On Tuesday's Hardball, Matthewsmocking the Republican congressmen vying for the chairmanship of the House Science Committee committed this whopper: "As we all learned in grammar schoolyoung people watchingtrees absorb carbon monoxide."
Uh, no, Chris. As even an MSNBC host might know, carbon monoxide is a toxic gas produced when there is insufficient oxygen to permit complete oxidation. Think running car in closed garage. Trees absorb carbon dioxide. Perhaps it was just a slip of the overworked Matthews' tongue, but when it comes to a guy who likes to jump down any available Republican throat, turnabout is fair play.

Matthews aims at Republicans, shoots self. Ping to Today show list.
Matthews absorbs nonsense & emits hot air.
Chris Matthews...Is he still alive???
That said, the chlorophytum comosum (i.e. spider plant) does absorb carbon monoxide.
Didn’t know that—interesting. Matthews’ claim was that “trees” absorb CO, which is apparently untrue.
This ass is crazy. He is the perfect example of the communists MSM that has been the biggest contributor to the destruction of America.
He’s a liberal. Math and science are hard.
Chris Matthews has inhaled carbon monoxide one too many times.
He was a guinea pig for bath salts research? That’s my best guess as to what makes Chris whizz .. and buzzz.
“Ah know. Let’s have a spellin’ bee.”
In respect of the scientific method, Chris needs to gather a few plants, go into his closed garage, and start the car. See when entity thrives on the carbon monoxide that results.
In other Stupid-Liberal- person, failed actor news, Jaennene Garafalo recently found out she has been married for the last 20 years and didn’t know it. And she called George Bush “dumb?”
(I don’t like spelling their names right, btw, they hate when you do that)
Alcoholism,diabetes, which more and more reports link to Alzheimer's is a good bet.
Diabetes alone especially in a alcoholic will cause erratic behavior, Alzheimer's makes it much worse. He is 67 next month and may have had it for years.
Marx always claimed that his theories were “scientific” and any who opposed them were “unscientific” and not worthy of arguing with.
Gosh, do we see this today in modern “liberals”?
If there is anything worse than a sore looser it’s a sore winner. Matthews is a sore winner. He just can’t stop snipping.
Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life.
As much as I hated us losing the election I will have 4 more years of chuckles because of these pics.
Carbon monoxide does eventually convert to carbon dioxide. There are microorganisms in the soil and water that speed the process along. You might notice that grass and plant growth along the sides of highways resembles riparian communities.
None of this, of course, is meant to suggest Chrissy has sense enough not to suck on an exhaust pipe.
On the planet where Chris Matthews was educated, the plants do absorb CO. And animals exhale it. For some reason, their respiratory systems do not fully oxidize carbon.
This may explain why every idea that Chris expresses is half-baked.
So, where is the picture of the handgun for liberals? You know. The one with the barrel that points at the person holding the gun! I think Chrissy inhaled way too much carbon monoxide on his many trips to the forest.
When I first skimmed the title of the article, I thought it said "Chris Matthews Claims GOP Ignorant of Science While Claiming Pants Absorb Carbon Monoxide."
I can’t believe that Chrissy could suffer from a slip of the tongue like that, his tongue is usually so firmly clenched between Obama’s butt cheeks.
I’m your Huckleberry.
Ask a lib to eat GM corn.
Watch how fast they reject science.
