MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews offered a bit praise to Rush Limbaugh for his impersonation of former President Bill Clinton. Mr Limbaugh was making light of the former President’s standard of truth, or lack thereof.
MATTHEWS: Let`s take a look at Rush — I have to do this — Rush Limbaugh today impersonating Bill Clinton and assessing the situation. Let`s listen to Rushbo.
Ms MITCHELL: Oh dear!
RUSH LIMBAUGH, RADIO TALK SHOW HOST: I`m going to kiss your (EXPLETIVE DELETED) if you kiss my (EXPLETIVE DELETED). I`ll make sure that you — if you come groveling to me, I`ll be happy to help you out here. Now look at what has happened here, they go to Bill Clinton. He`s famous for getting people jobs. Monica Lewinsky offered a job at Revlon. She was offered a job at the United Nations. She didn`t take any of them. But they`ve got Bill Clinton. Isn`t it great, folks, that they found a guy who they know will commit perjury to carry the water here?

MATTHEWS: Well sometimes even he can get it right. That was pretty good lampooning, I`ve got to say.
I have to say that this is a bit of switch for Mr. ‘I get tingle down my leg every time Obama speaks’ Matthews. In all the time I have been aware of him, he has done nothing but air one personal attack after another aimed at Mr. Limbaugh.
For background on the story, or what leads up to the story, President Obama has enlisted the aid of Former President Clinton to help him deal with the rising calls for an investigation into Rep Sestak’s claim that the White House offered him a position in the administration if he would drop his bid to run for Senate against Arlen Spector.
If in fact, President Obama did make the offer, it would not be surprising. That is simply the way things are done in Chicago mob politics. However, it is against the law and an impeachable offense.
I have to give Obama credit for being smart enough to bring in Bill Clinton. If anyone should know how to distort the truth, hide the real issue behind media slander, mis-inform the public to gain their support and lie under oath to avoid prosecution, Bill Clinton is the man 🙂
But, back to the Chris Matthews praising Rush thing. I have to wonder if even Socialist Chris Matthews is not becoming a bit concerned that they, the lame stream media and Socialist Democrats, have over reached this time. Maybe that tingle down the leg feeling is becoming something more alarming.
It will be interesting to watch as President Obama’s favorable numbers drop right along with MSNBC’s declining audience. Will Chris Matthews continue to dance with the one that brung him, or begin looking for a lifeboat like all the other rats that are beginning to desert the sinking ship? 🙂
Maybe there is hope yet for honest Journalism. Maybe this is the beginning of a new phase of truth in media. Maybe I, and others like me, will be able to close down our blog’s and spend more time doing recreational things.
Nah, we all know that the lame stream is never going to change their nasty habit of never telling us the truth without misleading us to their political position. Maybe Mr. Matthews went of his meds, or it could be that he simply had a moment of sanity and clarity. Hey, its’ been known to happen. Once a year or so 🙂
