How Can Chris Matthews Hate Hillary So Publicly and Get Away With It?

Last night, in the comments of Jeff's awesome Angry Women Back Clinton post, I said, "I'm frankly a lot less optimistic than you are that tonight's inspiring and refreshing and generally fantastic repudiation of institutional misogyny will last. It will raise its head again in this campaign. Mark my words. I'd bet money on seeing an example tomorrow."

Today:


Last night, Matthews said: "I give her a lot of personal credit; I will never underestimate Hillary Clinton again."
But by this morning Matthews had already forgotten his newfound respect for her. He said: "The reason she's a U.S. Senator, the reason she's a candidate for President, the reason she may be a front-runner, is her husband messed around. That's how she got to be Senator from New York. We keep forgetting it. She didn't win it on the merits..."
In good news, the other part of my comment was this: "That doesn't undermine what happened tonight, though. It was awesome. And it was worth a good few teaspoons."

Keep talking, Tweety, you misogynist wankstain. Underestimate her all the way to the White House.

MS-NBC's Chris Matthews flew totally off the rails last night as the positive results trickled in for Hillary Clinton . It was clear that even NBC anchor emeritus Tom Brokaw was taken aback by Matthew's vitriolic rants. Note to MS-NBC boss Dan Abrams: Tweety needs some time off.
