Boldly going where no Democrat has ever gone before, Chris Matthews cemented his status as The Boy Who Cried Racism during an MSNBC segment with RNC chair Reince Priebus this morning.

Whining about Mitt Romney’s birth certificate joke, an increasingly unbalanced Matthews unleashed a torrent of blather:

It is an embarrassment to your party to play that card. This stuff about getting rid of the work requirement for welfare is dishonest…. and you are playing that little ethnic card there. You can play your games and giggle about it, but the fact is your side is playing that card…. It’s a race card.

It’s the GOP side that plays the race card?

Do you think Matthews gets a tingle down his leg when he projects?

And evidently Matthews missed the recent MSNBC memo: no need to stop short at accusing the GOP of playing the race card. He could’ve gone all in by labeling everything Republicans do “the most despicable bigotry we can imagine.”

Farewell to missed opportunities, Chris.

Still, at this rate, Matthews will be a quivering puddle of drool before the GOP convention gets into full swing.

It’s worth noting that Priebus remained calm in the face of Matthew’s spittle-laden meltdown.

BuzzFeed’s Ben Smith initially called it a “shouting match,” but was immediately taken to task by followers for his BenSmithing.


This afternoon, Newt Gingrich took Matthews to the woodshed for his incessant, insane race-baiting:

Behold the sound thrashing:

That. Was. Glorious. Conservative Twitterers thought so, too.
