Chris Matthews is well known for his creepiness, unintelligible ranting, mancrushes and general hackery, but he's really gone off the deep end during this primary season. On Thursday's Hardball, he talks with MSNBC's Pat Buchanan, Dana Milbank and Maria Teresa Petersen of Voto Latino about the upcoming Pennsylvania primary -- see if you can follow the bouncing ball.

Matthews says that Obama has an advantage, but asks if the "drama" surrounding Clinton's victories earlier this week will be the deciding factor. He has more medals, but she has more gold medals. He then says that as the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton isn't a risk, but Obama is a "roll of the dice" -- then goes on to say that the primary in PA is all about the south east part of the state with lots of educated people from the suburbs which bodes well for Obama -- his breakdown of PA and all the different ethnic, religious and educational demographics is incoherent at best and toward the end he leans in to Pat Buchanan and tells him he ought to grow his beard out and go in and talk tough to the people of Philadelphia because they're old school and he'd fit right in. WTF?

MSNBC needs to give Matthews some time off, and I mean that sincerely. I realize that job isn't the easiest in the world and he's been keeping a hectic schedule during the primary season, but Chris is, even by his own mind numbing standards, starting to lose it and he won't always have Keith Olbermann there to save him from himself.
