Who Dares Defy King Rush?

Chris Matthews dares GOP strategist Todd Harris to say something negative about Rush Limbaugh. He can’t, which leads the “Hardball” host to wonder whether anyone in the GOP is willing to risk Rush’s ire.

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.

Rep.‘s ‘Anti-American’ Comments Could Cost Her Re-Election

Rep. Michelle Bachmann was cakewalking to re-election in her Republican-leaning Minnesota district until she told Chris Matthews the media should investigate anti-Americanism in Congress. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee calls that a “$1 million mistake.”

That?s Senator Chris Matthews to You, Steve

The “Hardball” host seems to tell his satirical counterpart that he’s serious about a run for the Senate in 2010: “Some kids want to be a fireman. I want to be a senator.” Awwww.

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.

Elizabeth Edwards Strikes Back

Ann Coulter fielded a call-in by Elizabeth Edwards on MSNBC’s “Hardball” Tuesday night as Coulter sat with host Chris Matthews in front of a gaggle of young voters to discuss the ‘08 campaign.  Needless to say, Mrs. Edwards was none too thrilled with Coulter’s recent (and past) comments about her husband and family.

Chris Matthews Drops the S-Bomb

Chris Matthews really stuck it to the hawks on Wednesday’s “Hardball”: “If you want America to be a hegemonic power in the Middle East, you’re out of step with the American people. We’re not going to fight it out with Iran for the next 30 years to see who the big s***—I’m sorry—the big name is on the block.”

misleading readers about an editorial he wrote on Richard Clarke and terrorism. Blankley can only sputter.

Matthews, Hackett Demolish GOP Candidate

This one was so brutal it almost wasn’t fun to watch. Almost. NBC’s Chris Matthews and antiwar veteran Paul Hackett made mincemeat of Texas GOP congressional candidate Van Taylor, whom they repeatedly chastised for using meaningless talking points. Taylor was more out of his depth than George Bush at a Mensa convention.
