Welcome Back, Mr. Matthews
Today we celebrate the return of muppety TV pundit Chris Matthews to the airwaves after a brief illness. Coincidentally, Matthews was born on this day in 1945 in Philadelphia.
We can think of no greater tribute to Chris than the observation of Ana Marie Cox on Chris' performance during the second inaugural of George W. Bush in 2004: "It's days like today that bring out the best in Chris Matthews. And by 'best' we mean, rambling, incoherent, insane brilliance. He's like Rain Man, can't help but comment on any and every thing set before him. Here's Chris on . . . the White House floor: 'Look at this great, great camera angle . . . Look at that shiny, shiny floor. . . '"
