And is this ever just delish, as Rachel Ray would say. There is nothing like an overbearing, arrogant, condescending, pompous, misogynistic MSNBC “journalist” having to eat his words, so to speak.
You might recall, if you ever watched this guy, Matthews continually putting down Sarah Palin’s intelligence, and mocking how she would do on the classic game show, “Jeopardy.” If you missed it, here are a few of his lowlights from Newsbusters:
[...] This from a man who on October 2, 2008, shortly before that evening’s Vice Presidential debate, said of Palin:
“Is this [vice presidential debate] about her brain power?… Do you think cute will beat brains?…Do you think she’d do better on the questions on Jeopardy! or the interview they do during a half-time?…My suspicion is that she has the same lack of intellectual curiosity that the President of the United States has right now and that is scary!”
Then on January 12, 2010:
They find these empty vessels who know nothing about the world! Nothing about foreign policy! Who immediately begin to spout the neo-con line. I read her book — it’s full of that crap….It’s unbelievable how little this woman knows!…Don’t put her on Jeopardy!”
And again on November 2, 2010:
“Senator, do you think Sarah Palin is qualified to be President of the United States?…If she were on Jeopardy! right now and the topic was national government, American government generally defined, would she look like an imbecile, or would she look okay? Does she know anything?”
My guess is she knows a helluva lot more than Matthews, who bombed repeatedly on the show, as evidenced below (if you prefer to read some of the inane things Matthews said, click HERE):
AHAHAHAHAHAHA. You know, I just couldn’t script this much better. Unless there was a question or two about Gov. Palin and some of her successes as Governor of Alaska Matthews had to try and answer. Come to think of it, that would have been oh, so much fun. You know, something like, “Which governor went up against Big Oil for the state and won?” Chris: “Uh, um, who would be Dubya”? Bonk – Nope, sorry there, Chris!
But honestly, this was still pretty good, all things considered. And losing to Robert Gibbs? Holy smokes.
Yes, this is some poetic justice, indeed.
I can think of some Jeopardy questions, with “Who is Chris Matthews” as the answer. I bet you can, too. I’ll start: “Who re-defines ‘Biggest Loser’”? Who is Chris Matthews?
You get the idea. Now it’s up to you. Have fun!
