Chris Matthews is a dope

    He is the host of one of those dopey talk shows - he was on Jeopardy this week, and looked like an absolute dope.

    He knew much less than the teens who were on the week before. Not only could he not answer questions, he could barely figure out when to answer... like he had never been on tv before. He looked like a doddering old fool.

    Almost, but not quite, as bad as Wolf Blitzer.

    On the other hand, Chuck Todd was crushing it last night. Since it's very obvious Chris has one of the most severe cases of adult ADD on record, we must consider his performance in terms of his learning disability.

    The pressure gets to some, more than others. Once he got his sea legs, Chris Wallace performed -- while Dana Perino turned out to be even more helpless than Dr. Oz. Missed last night -- how did those three go?

    Not surprised. The all-round news guys should be good, if they can handle the buzzer with any dexterity. Being in this business is definitely a marked edge for trivia competitions of any kind.

    I'll wait until Birdscribe gives us his professional opinion.

    Nobody beats the ineptitude of Wolf Blitzer.

    Who was it who beat Blitzer? For some reason I'm thinking it was Penn Jillette or someone like that.

    Who cares? A carbon rod could have beaten Wolf Blitzer. Jeez that was an insight into just how empty those talking heads are.. Matthews didnt exactly help the cause this week.

    To be fair - nobody could understand what they were going for on that sexual harassment question. I guessed workplace as well.
