PHOTO: Chris “thrill up my leg” Matthews takes promoting the DNC to a whole new level

Posted by: ST on April 2, 2010 at 8:24 pm

I think this photo of Obama worshipper/informal promoter Chris Matthews pretty much says it all:

Matthews BFD

I'm a walking, talking, breathing DNC campaign ad!

Via Brent Baker at Newsbusters, who has the backstory:

The Hardball host reported “the shirts have temporarily sold out, but,” he boasted as he held up one in front of him, “I’ve got my own right here. If you had to ask, extra large. There it is. ‘Health care reform, BFD.’ There it is.”


Matthews, in the “Political Sideshow” segment on the Friday, April 2 Hardball:

…The Democratic National Committee has turned a lemon into lemonade. They’ve taken the catch phrase, slapped it on a T-shirt and are now selling it online. You too can get your BFD shirt with a donation of $25. It reads: ‘Health Reform, a BFD.’ Just $25 for a piece of delightfully unscripted history. Tonight’s ‘Big Number.’And by the way, the shirts have temporarily sold out, but I’ve got my own right here. If you had to ask, extra large. There it is. ‘Health care reform, BFD.’ There it is.

Up next, the latest example of the far right gone mad. Three dozen governors across the country have received identical threatening letters urging them to resign…

The “BFD”, of course, comes from what were supposed to be off-mic remarks VP Joe Biden made to President Obama shortly after introducing him just moments before signing the healthcare “reform” legislation.

With the size of Matthews’ ego, you’d think he’d need a size much bigger than just XL …

    What media bias????

  2. ZippyTheWerewolf says:

    Irreverence has been exalted to new highs..or is that lows?

    Irreverent. Pompous. Arrogant. Cocky. Narcissitic. Dictator. Idiotic. blah blah blah these people.

    And CM looks like a Hitler youth with that coiffure.

  3. Kim Priestap says:

    Now he’s hawking ObamaCare t-shirts?

    Why is MSNBC even pretending? Just call the station MSBHO and be done with it already.

    Classless people. The good thing is that no one watches this moron.

  5. Drew says:

    That was my thought, nina. Who watches except for friends and relatives?! :)

    There was a time in this country when not only would a person not get caught dead wearing filthy garbage like that, but the wearer would have been arrested, thrown in jail, and a judge would have made it stick.

    People who proudly display profanity should remember that even though they have “free speech rights,” they also have “free speech responsibilities” and subjecting others to their profanity just isn’t cool at all.

    Besides, with that particular T-shirt the wearers only emphasize their ignorance. Fits Mr. Matthews well.

    We could counter with a PG rated version:
    Health Reform
    Bad Fouled-up Deal!

    Well, this would make my 10th grade English teacher remark, If you can’t use a polite word you don’t have a polite thought in your head.

    But, of course, manners are only applied to the conservative wing and liberals can cuss like sailors. It all goes to character and BHO and his cohorts fall short of that.

  9. Paul says:

    Matthews is a loud maouth bully who trys to make people uneasy and then verbally machine gun them. He is in no way objective. I put him alongside that putz Keith Olbermann!

  10. bill glass says:

    What a giddy middle-schoolish twit! Who watches his show? Children do crave attention, so that explains his pathetic act. You’d think even a dolt like Matthews would have to admit privately that he’s concerned about the debt, and passing along the bill to our kids…but he’s busy tooting his horn and celebrating a (pyrrhic) victory by his side.

  11. Robert says:

    My New T Shirts will be on sale this month..

    Demorat Health Reform: BFD=Big Fkn DISASTER!

  12. ZippyTheWerewolf says:

    @ Carlos: Excellent post. But unfortunately the liberal elite whore themselves out and justify (by PC definition, justify is a nice word for excuse) whatever they say or do and dismiss the opposition (in liberal terms opposition meaning enemy) as invalid.

    If ever a Republican openly hawked a tee shirt like that hot mess, there would be holy hell.

  13. Swede says:

    Chrissy Matthews: LFD!

  14. Paul says:

    Chris Matthews is in no way objective. He has a Liberal agenda and he relishes putting it to people who disagree with him. Somebody needs to stuff a rag in his mouth – just kidding. However, the man is a disgrace as a “journalist”.

    Such a tool. All I have to say is Obamacare, Big F’in Whoop, or BFW. – Lorica
