Chris Matthews took time out of covering fake scandals and reciting GOP narratives on Monday's Hardball to take a dig at members of the media who attended this year's White House Correspondents' Dinner:

"...It's one thing to gather for events like this in Washington, it's another one to laugh and applaud - to be charmed when the president puts on a little show. It's harmless stuff, except that the people yucking it up in that scene are the people who are professionally committed to calling it when the people in power get it wrong."

Where do I begin? When it comes to boot licking and heaping praise on some of the worst politicians, (current, former AND indicted) pundits and candidates to ever darken Washington D.C., Matthews, the Village Idiot, knows no peer.

Can you help us out?
