For the second time in a week, Chris Matthews patience was tried by friends of Obama pretending that lies don’t matter.  Has he grown a set or is he trying out for Fox News?  His guest was Guy Cecil, the executive director of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee,  Matthews accused him of “flackery” and evidently, Matthews no longer likes ”flackery.”

“I don’t want a Democratic flack who can’t think beyond his job description!”, screamed Matthews.

Matthews made the point that a landslide victory for Chris Christie would be a significant sign for the resurgence of the Republican party.  Cecil remarked that it would have zero impact.  At this point, Matthews started calling for a new guest.

“Wait a minute, stop right here. If you are just gonna flack guy, you have no value to this show.  You are telling me that a victory in a big, headline-dominating race in New Jersey doesn’t matter?”

When Cecil said yes, Matthews called for the next guest.

“You have no value to this show if you are going to talk like that. That’s insane talk.  You’re wasting my time with flackery! I don’t want a Democratic flack who can’t think beyond his job description!”

Those are some pretty tough words.  You have to wonder why.
