Chris Matthews Goes Ballistic UPDATED

Wow. I have no fancier words for it, just Wow. I've never seen him nail someone to the wall like he did today. Sadly the video and transcript will not be up until late Monday so if you can, catch Hardball on re-run tonight or wait till Monday when I'll post it as soon as it's available.

Hint, and this is from memory so probably not an exact quote: Matthews: "would you Republicans be as staunchly defending this war if it was Bill Clinton's war".

He stopped short of clobbering his guest over the head with a chair but damned if I didn't think he was considering it.

Update: the transcript is only mildly interesting, it wasn't just what he said so much as the way he said it. For whatever reason MSNBC did not post a video of this segment of the show, shame because more of this and less yada, yada, yada, might convince me to watch more often.

Did you see the video of the guy that actually did throw a chair at his opponent during a debate. I wonder if anyone got hurt.

I missed that. It is interesting to note, however, that the same Repuglicans that are screaming about how a deadline for troop withdrawal violated Bush's pResidential authority were sponsoring similar legislation setting deadlines for Clinton to withdraw troops from Bosnia, an action in which ZERO us troops died.

Good for Matthews.
