Newsflash, right? Chris Matthews says dumb things as often as he gets chills up his leg, but this little ditty from last night might be his best ever. In a bit of post-State of the Union analysis Matthews began riffing on Obama's race, his favorite subject, and after lauding the president as "post-racial by all appearances," he let loose with this bon mot:
"I forgot he was black tonight, for an hour."
Errrr. Okay, Matthews obviously didn't mean anything negative by this. But damn, that guy can get his foot into his mouth with incredible ease.
