No Senate Run for Matthews

The U.S. Senate is safe from “Hardball” host Chris Matthews—at least for now. Matthews will stay put on the media-specific side of the political arena instead of making a bid for a Senate seat in his home state of Pennsylvania, as suggested by the recent scuttlebutt about him.

Rep. Michelle Bachmann’s Apology Fail

Minnesota Rep. Michelle Bachmann apparently understood that she needed to do a little spin control following her jaw-dropping flirtation with McCarthyism on “Hardball” last week, but she apparently didn’t feel the need to apologize to anyone, judging by her latest campaign spot.

Olbermann Not Coveting Russert’s Chair, Thank You Very Much

After his rather startling Rupert-Murdoch-as-evil-pirate impression, Keith Olbermann takes a moment in this clip to fire back at a report, printed Friday in the New York Post’s Page Six gossip column, that he’s angling for the late Tim Russert’s job as anchor of “Meet the Press.” Regardless of whether there’s truth behind the rumors, it’s apparent that Olbermann has a very rosy view of how entertainment agents operate.

Matthews Suffers Interview From Hell on ‘Daily Show’

Chris Matthews got much more than he bargained for when he peddled his new book, “Life’s a Campaign,” on “The Daily Show.”  In this clip, Jon Stewart savages the book, calling it both “a recipe for sadness” and a “self-hurt book” and making not-at-all-subtle references to Machiavelli and fascism.  Fireworks ensue.
