CHRIS MATTHEWS SUNDAY SHOW
Andrew Sullivan, wistfully, predicts evangelicals will sit out this election. He's been on Christian Talk shows lately dontcha know, and he's an expert on Christians.
David Gregory argues a bit with Chris about the democrats having this election all sewned up . Maybe Gregory feels a bit embarrassed that Chris doesn't have the first stringers on this morning. Where is Howard Fineman, by the way? Where's Andrea Mitchell? I don't even know who Amy Sullivan is!
Chris asks, "What did Republicans get by controlling all 3 branches of government?" they got Abraham, Enron, the war, scandal, corruption, he says. (Chris Matthews usually answers his own questions...it's his way of clueing in the guests what they are supposed to say....should he ever shut up long enough for them to get a word in. )
David Gregory disagrees with Chris again after Chris laments the president got away with so much because he was so popular. "Bush wasn't so popular when he came in, he didn't have the wind at his back.", David reminds Chris.
Chatty Katy says republicans won't take back the senate, Gregory says it's too close to call. Sullivan says republicans will take 5, and chris agrees.
Matthews plays Reagan's open mike gaffe to illustrate how bad Kerry must be feeling.
"Christmas came early for everyone else running for president in 2008 " Chris says of Kerry's blunder. Chris is especially stricken at McCain's reaction, "McCain is making his bones on the back of his old friend Kerry," says Matthews. Again, Gregory won't agree with that assessment of John McCain.
That Katy british gal says McCain comes off looking very badly. (Oh dear, if she wants to come back on the show, she's got to bash McCain too. And I hope she'll wear her Clay Aiken red leather jacket when she does.) then comes video of Hillary's (pandering) comment. Chris plays her Kerry statement. He asks, what is this "inappropriate"? 'It sounds like he groped her", Chris says. (LOL at Chris' sexual mental leap.) Oh and Andrew Sullivan might cry tears of disappointment at McCain's betrayal. "I loved the guy", Sullivan says. Boo hoo, boo hoo...
"yes " 11 reporters on Chris' elite panel of reporters say Kerry has blown 2008, and only 1 of them says "no".
oh just found out Amy Sullivan is from The Washington Monthly. (Take 2 Midols and call me in the morning.)
My mistake, I'll clean my tiny TV screen....Chatty Katy Kay's jacket only looks like Aiken's red leather, it's really Prince's orange velveteen number.
TELL Chris something he doesn"t know segment:
Nancy Pelosi is expecting another grandchild says David Gregory, and says Bush will be the first person she will call because her daughter and Bush are such close friends.
Amy Sullivan predicts Hillary will not run for president. Temperamentally Hillary is a senator Sullivan says, she's happy there, well suited.
Oh get this from Andrew Sullivan!
Hastert, Reynolds, and Rove knew all about Foley for years,, says Andrew Sullivan. Sullivan is predicting what the Ethics committee will report. Even Chris is puzzled. "You said Rove?". Yes, Sullivan says, "Rove knew all about Foley for years, or Rove isn't Rove. Rove knows everything. and he was in on the cover up." Chris asks Sullivan, "you don't like Rove very much do you?", and childishly Dandy Nancy Andy says, "no comment". (Andrew, you can be soooo bitchy!)
Chris Matthews last segment speech is just plain boring, I think it was something about The Arnold.
WOW, your thread was "Front and Center" as I logged on.
It's going to be a great day.
remember 2002, 2004, when McAwful "guaranteed" that the Dems win everything in sight?
One can only hope Liddy Dole will be a no-show or develops lockjaw.
Good morning and thanks AB! I've been out of touch this week and I'm looking forward to learning what's been going on.
It appears Saddam will affect the various shows this morning too.
It's fun to watch their faces as they see it slipping away from them...
Chris Matthews. The gift that keeps on giving, and won't STFU!
He's debased himself so much over these past few years. Remember, Rush Limbaugh used to let him guest host form time to time back in the Clinton days. Not anymore. Matthews is BDS, 24/7.
Where's Ken Mehlman?
Great summary. I usually try, with great success, to miss Chris whenever he's on.
Oh, if they'd only put HoDee on at the same time as Mister Cheney...
They slithered back under the rocks until after the election.
The office Liberals have already stated that the only reason Dems will not take both House and Senate is due to voter fraud by Republicans. They were not in a good mood this week.
That discussion sounds like they all were sampling some of Gregory's 'private stash' prior to the show. These are high and giddy times for the seditious, Fourth Estate.
