Update: A reliable source just sent Matthews’ email: firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s nice that Chris Matthews has dropped all pretense to being an unmitigated GOP whore. Not only did he allow possibly the biggest crime boss in modern history onto his show to babble a bunch of bullshit completely unchecked, once the cameras were off he couldn’t get DeLay’s knob in his mouth fast enough:
MATTHEWS: Have you seen this new focus group stuff on the candidates?
DELAY: No I haven’t
MATTHEWS: It’s great stuff. I’ll send it to you — it’s great — yeah it’s great stuff. Hillary, John Kerry. All these guys, all these democrats, and how they do. And, uh, Frank Luntz did it…
DELAY: who I like
CM: …and Hillary did not do well. Kerry did well.
DELAY: You’re kidding.
MATTHEWS: I am NOT kidding. They didn’t like Edwards — they thought he was a rich lawyer, pretending to care about poor people…
DELAY: Too slick. Too slick.
MATTHEWS: …and Hillary was a know-it-all.
DELAY: Nothing worse than a woman know-it-all
MATTHEWS: Thanks. I owe you one. I owe you two — today and last night.
DELAY: No you don’t.
MATTHEWS: No, I do.
DELAY: I appreciate it.
This is disgusting. I don’t expect anything better from DeLay, about whom I would need to see proof positive that he actually had a set of human chromosomes. But the fact that Chris Matthews refers to Hillary Clinton as a "know-it-all," and then says nothing in response to DeLay’s comment about "nothing worse than a woman know-it-all" is really just beyond. I’m sure it was hard for Matthews to talk with his mouth full at that point, but really, couldn’t he just have worked DeLay’s joint with his hand for a few minutes while he bleated some feeble disagreement?
I guess not. Matthews is the one who consistently has Ole 60 Grit O’Beirne on to smear and reproach women who don’t happily take their blackened eyes from the GOP. I used to think he was just spinelessly bowing to the Rethuglicans in the same way he cowers before Osama bin Laden but I guess I was mistaken — he actually believes this pile of sexist bullshit.
I notice in the exchange that DeLay is not a very generous partner. I guess reciprocating is not much fun when Matthews’ limp lil’ pecker is already coated with heavyweight abrasive?
Matthews owes Hillary Clinton — and all women — an apology. Those wishing to express their feelings can do so here:

Who thought Tweety could chart new lows for obsequious, humiliating servility. What a fucking chump.
