There were a lot of funny bits in Times Magazine's profile of Chris Matthews this past weekend, but we especially loved the parenthetical after the following scene, which we present to you here:

Matthews was standing in the lobby of the Ritz when [Tim] Russert walked through, straight from a workout, wearing a sweat-drenched Buffalo Bills sweatshirt, long shorts and black rubber-soled shoes with tube socks. “Here he is; here he is, the man,” Matthews said to Russert, who smiled and chatted for a few minutes before returning to his room. (An MSNBC spokesman, Jeremy Gaines, tried, after the fact, to declare Russert’s outfit “off the record.”)
