Chris Matthews is really, really starting to creep me out. He reminds me of an older relative of mine who has no filters on anything he says and so consequently says some very inappropriate things without realizing it. We've heard before that John McCain is very popular with the press corps simply because he's always been very accessible to them, but this is simply taking things a little too far:
There he is! Senator McCain! You know you’re in my heart. I have to tell you, the President gave your speech tonight. He talked about we got to cut the number of earmarks in half or I’m going to veto the bill, he talked about..about the war against terrorism, he talked about reform. It was…he didn’t talk about much about the global economic challenge right now. In fact, he said basically we’ll get through this like you do. It was your speech, Senator.
