Chris Matthews: “I Lost On Jeopardy”

That's right, kids. Our boy on MSNBC, Mister Tingles himself, who shortly before maintaining that Sarah Palin was dumber than a post (or words to that effect), recently did as badly on the famous quiz show as he claimed the former Alaska governor might do. This would be the same intellectual giant who thought that the six-letter capital of Russia was Istanbul. So now Mister T has a new nickname, as in the title above.

Look on the bright side. At least he didn't say "What is Constantinople?"

This is not about deriving pleasure from someone else's failure at a game show. It is a commentary on the arrogance of major personalities in the mainstream media, and their uncovering so as to show their true faces, those of so-called "journalists" who couldn't cover a local house fire if their jobs depended on it. And yet, there they are, condescending to anyone who fails to meet their shallow expectations, as they eschew the substance for style, in waxing on the major issues of the day.

By the way, if you think Sarah Barracuda doesn't have the intellectual chops to handle complex matters of state, consider what we wrote four years ago about a de facto position she held as Governor of Alaska. Yeah, just sayin.'

And now ... take it away, Don Pardo!
