I watch Chris Matthew's.

His show is on at 4-5pm which is when I'm winding down work and I have it on as background noise.

I kind of look at him as the MSNBC version of Bill O'reiliy or Vice versa.

When the other news, well not news, but opinion based news shows are on, I'm usually playing with my kids, reading a book, watching something DVR's or just generally living life.

So Matthew's is good enough.

In the Irish-American community, there exists the vestiges of the old Democratic Party. These are people given to liberal attitudes about economics - there are a disproportionate number of working poor among them - and they often support strong labor unions, progressive taxation, increased minimum wages, and so forth. The culture embraces authoritarianism, however, which many observers (James Joyce, for one) attribute to the pervasive and even oppressive authority exerted by the Catholic Church, which may also account for the strong influence of social conservatism expressed as opposition to (for example) women's rights and gay rights. Also, there's a frank tradition of racism - sadly, not unexpected in a group that was itself a victim of bigotry for a couple of generations and which comes to see other working poor as competition for jobs. I know these people well, because I'm part of their community. My Irish-family settled in Montana among other Irish-Americans in hardscrabble mining towns like Butte and Anaconda, and I grew up around them. For years these communities were reliably Democratic because the Democrats addressed their economic concerns, but when the economy went south in the 1970's these folks became the Reagan Democrats.

During the 2008 campaign, I saw interviews with rural Democrats in places like West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and eastern Ohio. They were mostly of Scottish or Irish ancestry, and a lot of them expressed discomfort about Obama's color and, even moreso, his name. Some of them were quite certain that the candidate was Muslim, and they really, really hated and feared Muslims. In some cases, the racism was open and vicious. Although most of them identified with the Democratic Party by default, a lot of them were voting for McCain.

Chris Matthews is also part of this cultural tradition. As many of us did, he grew up in a household which revered John F. Kennedy above all others aside from the Pope himself. When you hear Matthews talk about Kennedy, you can almost hear him tear up. He talks a lot about Kennedy's swagger, his rock star quality, and the authoritarian in Matthews feels a tingle down his leg whenever he's reminded of Kennedy's aura - something which he saw in Reagan,in Clinton, and even in Dubya from time to time. He's made it quite clear, however, that he's never seen it in Obama. He thinks of Obama as an egghead, a Poindexter, and that sort of thing is frowned upon in the Irish-American culture unless you're a judge or a priest. Frankly, Chris Matthews thinks he could beat Obama up, and so he holds the president in contempt. It's all he can do to keep from calling Obama a sissy.

Didn't realize Bill Ayers' daddy was CEO and Chair of ConEd or that he was a big SDS dude.

Almost bought a three-story house in Ausitn near campus where Janis Joplin had lived, SDS and Black Panthers leaders had lived, and the FBI had lived (next door). Twenty five years later, ilt was a fixer upper.

The strangest thing was the SDS Student Worker Coalition. On campus events were free to students but poor workers had to pay $5, which was a lot in the last 60s.

How times have changed.

Now the rich kids are so different. Why I remember just about 12 years ago, as the Bushes and binLadens sat down to a nice banquet at the Carlysle Group meet in DC, their kids, George W and Osama played rich kid cowboys and indians with some real estate in lower Manhattan.

A rock, incapable of buzzing in a single answer, would have done better than Wolf Blitzer. You could have literally put a pile of monkey sh*t in the next podium, and its score of $0 would have been larger than Wolf's.

I didn't say what one could say. Making less than $3000 at Jeopardy after acting like a smartypants douche is pretty damning in and of itself. Being a douche isn't exclusive to any political party.

Oh, don't get me wrong; I can't stand Wolf Blitzer (which I'm still convinced is a sexual position illegal in 14 sates) and I've never actually seen Chris Matthews in action.

I just think "At least you did marginally better than Wolf Blitzer on Jeopardy" an awesome put-down.

I remember when he got Phil Donahue thrown off the air for not supporting the Iraq War.  It is funny seeing conservatives pretend he didn't exist before the 2008 election, though.

At least a couple reasons. Bill Ayers might well be in jail right now himself if not for his family connections. He was also "best buds" with Obama so it's unexpected he would want him tried for war crimes.

Do you have a handy graph or image that can be submitted for peer review? I see your point about all capitalist being right of center, I would just like to see the image that shows the whole world right of center and old Karl all by his lonesome on the left. It would be more effective if he is shaking a tiny fist.
