Chris Matthews might be brash, over the top, and at times idiotic, but in an era of overly careful, PC-conscious talking heads, we kind of appreciate it. Which is why we constructed this loving tribute to "Tweety." In the above compilation of some of Matthews' most controversial and sometimes just plain imbecilic comments, the big guy shows his range, equally able to pronounce Barack Obama's basketball skill unsurprising (subtext: because he's black) and longingly wish for the return of the Stepford Wife. But it's not that Matthews is necessarily a racist, sexist, classist bigot (though he might be), it's just that the guy has a certain way of expressing his opinions on those issues that recalls a lumberjack at a tea party. And it's damn entertaining.
