Brought to you by the ever-enjoyable Jonah Goldberg:
Chris Matthews is an irredeemable ass. He's such an ass that if you could travel to the Platonic Realm of Ideas it would take a team of scientists working around the clock with electron microscopes and all of the beakers and tweezers of a CSI team to distinguish the Ideal Form of an Ass from its merely human Matthews-doppelgänger. And, even so, when the Platonic Ideal Ass sits back in the Platonic Ideal Form of a Barcalounger to watch Hardball, jealousy's sting strikes deep, giving way to a grudging respect for Matthews's mad skills. "Well played sir, well played."
