Skip to comments.Matthews: 'Foul Play' Behind Balloon Drop on Mitchell?
Posted on 09/05/2008 2:49:00 PM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest
Were those evil Republicans attempting to carpet-bomb Andrea Mitchell with balloons at the RNC last night? Chris Matthews mused about the possibility on Hardball this afternoon. The footage of Andrea gamely batting away the balloons has received a lot of play. This morning, the Today show had fun with it. But Matthews seemed to conceive a more sinister explanation:
CHRIS MATTHEWS: If you were watching last night, here was a funny moment. I have to tell you: I love Andrea. Look at this crazy moment. For some reason: I don't know if it was foul play or what it was, a billion balloons went right into her when she was trying to do a report from the floor. She was getting absolutely buried in that post-speech balloon drop.

Balloon-gate ping to Today show list.
I sure hope someone at the RNC was smart enough to deluge this sanctimonious hag with balloons. Too bad they didn’t drop a house on her too.
I’ve never seen a reporter look as dour and just plain pouty this year, as she did during the republican convention. You would’ve thought she was going in for a bowel resection with the sour look on her face the whole time.
Who cares what Matthews thinks.
I would have preferred Fowl Play myself - release a flock of pidgeons over Andrea. They speak her language - crapping on icons.
if only it was true :)
Well, Chrissy, did you get your convention pass back from Code Pink?
oh no prissy matthews is on to us, next thing you you he might connect the dots and figure out not only did we drop ballons on andrea we made the balloons not fall on kerry
You’d have thunk the airhead Mitchell would have naturally levitated above a bunch of baloons.
Get a clue PSNBC, your skanky coverage DESERVE to be bombed.
So Mitchell never looked up, to see the spot where the balloons were going to be released from the ceiling, and she was surprised when she unhappily discovered she was doing a stand-up directly underneath the balloon net. Or maybe she never figured it out.
Yup, that sure sounds sinister.
Can't put anything past you, can we
Nancy Drew Chrissy? You're just too smart for us.
I would say Karl has done better than this not his best work.
I suppose the MSNBC lawyers will put up a trial balloon.
Yeah, Crissy, there probably was some “foul play” behind all those balloons being dumped on Andrea Mitchell. It was mild retaliation for the unrelenting foul play that your network has been exhibiting for months as cheerleaders for Obama, capped off by a six day on-air orgy of hate against Sarah Palin.
