Chris Matthews Is A Drooling Fool


For anyone who tapes MSNBC's Hardball (which rules out most everyone), Chris Matthews got frothed at the mouth - literally - at 7:19PM Eastern, in discussing the Scooter Libby trial. Matthews did one split screen shot with NBC's David Schuster with a giant trail of slobber slowly rolling down, then off, his chin.

This is pretty much what YouTube was made for... Let's get some video on this, OK?

Update: Thanks to a helpful e-mail tipster we've now got the video...

The drooling starts, coincidentally, as Matthews talks about the Vice President's office covering up the inquiry into the uranium purchases from Niger, and right before he throws it back to Schuster. When he reappears on camera (not shown), the spittle is magically gone. Imagine the production assistant who had the honor of cleaning up that mess...

The guy has some serious health issues -- for example, he was recently hos-spittle-lized (ha ha... I made a funny) with complications related to diabetes. This may explain some of his more "random" interview moments, especially of the past six months.

I thought I'd die before ever finfing common ground w/ a Wizzer. I saw Matthews & missed it...maybe looking down or away.

It's often uproarious when some Wiz commenter berates this moron as a lefty. The plain truth is that Matthews is a dumb-ass Russert wannabee, as if that was some desired goal.

Matthews is a stupid puke and I am amused to learn that he DOES need the drool cup I always thought he should wear.

Doctors tell me that Stage 4 BDS (or CDS - Cheney Derangement Syndrome) includes symptoms like drooling.

I've pondered this image since it was first posted a few hours ago.

I'll admit I'm dumb as a rock, I should have figured out in a second.

That's not drool. Its Kerry/Murtha/Durbin spit back!

I was just sitting there, watching the Tivo manual recording that I had made earlier of Hardball and Olbermann, with a teething Avril Rose sleeping on my shoulder, 1:30 ay em, when I noticed the glistening, wet, thick, clear liquid gold just appear mysteriously in a long thin line down TWEETY's lower lip.
I'll never sleep peacefully again

Nah, that would mean Matthews had some sense of class and dignity. I bet he just used his sleeve....

I'm diabetic, but I never drooled myself; I don't believe that's in the diagnostic manual for the disease.

I concur with the BDS/CDS diagnosis. Perhaps he should take a break. Permanently. With Olbermann.

Kevin's post in another exhibit in why some in the conservative blogosphere have too much time on their hands.

There are medical conditions(Bell's Palsy) and some medications that cause excessive saliva. Trust me, I know from personal experience.

I don't like Matthews much but posts like this and the similarly constant mocking of people Cindy Sheehan show a tremendous lack of maturity.
People can't stick to the issues and resort to personal attacks.

Don't disagree with a conservative blogger or you're medical problems can be used for cheap laughs.

Peter F.:


And LWBloggers have never poked fun of or made a mockery out of President Bush's inability to say words like "nuclear" and "peninsula", never once considering that he might have a speech impediment or lisp that prevents him from saying those words correctly. Right.

Give us all a friggin' break with the pious, "you're all so insensitive!" tripe.

Geez, To listen to Chris Matthews is painful.
Here's is a self-hating white guy is there ever wasone. He goes ga ga over Al Sharton of late. I

I remember hearing that he once contracted malaria while on assignment somewhere overseas. Maybe drooling is a lingering symptom of that disease? Anyone?
