Colbert Report: Senator Chris Matthews In 2010!?!

Stephen tries his very hardest to coax Chris Matthews into announcing his intention to take a run at Arlen Specter's Senate seat in 2010. Perhaps more interestingly, Tweety doesn't seem like he's ruled it out. In fact, he tells Stephen his childhood dream was to be a Senator. Even GOP operative Roger Stone has written about it.

Although Stone repulses me, it looks like he's got this one correct:

Unfortunately, like Pat Buchanan before him, Chris Matthews has hours and hours of television tape going back 20 years and thousands of words in columns written in the same time period. His Senate bid will die of his own words.

Specter v. Matthews in 2010? Now that would be interesting.
