K-Lo Defends Obama From Mean Old Chris Matthews

by Jim Newell

You have probably seen this like ten times by now, where Chris Matthews says Obama went into “the enemy camp” (the White Army) to deliver his speech last night. Shockingly, this pissed off no one more than National Review‘s Kathryn Jean “Jonah Goldberg” Lopez, who declared this moment MSNBC’s “new shameful low” and added, “Chris, he’s commander-in-chief.” What is she THINKING! K-Lo, you’re K-Lo. Hopefully the millions of hateful wingnut e-mails she’s received for uttering this lie will straighten her out. Meanwhile, Meghan McCain had a different reaction.

The world’s most accurate interpretive mind, on fine display:

Meghan jesus christ. Dumb Chris Matthews wasn’t declaring the U.S. Army to be his enemy. Even *K-Lo* had the capacity to complete this kindergarten-level puzzle. Although too bad, because it would’ve be funny if Chris Matthews did mean this and was forced to fight the entire U.S. Army in a gauntlet match.

You know who else was forced to fight the entire U.S. Army?

Suds McKenzie December 2, 2009 at 4:03 pm

As long as tweety didnt mention what 1940′s movie this reminded him of, er, wait, shit I think he did that too.

‘golf clap’ @Meghan.

Judas Peckerwood December 2, 2009 at 4:07 pm

Meghan is a boobs.

iwillsavethispatient December 2, 2009 at 4:07 pm

He actually apologised for saying that later in the show, but said something like “but you know what I meant”. Obviously some people didn’t.

What I want him to apologise for is for asking guests why they say Cheney as “Chay-knee” instead of “Chee-knee”. YOU INVITED THEM ON YOUR SHOW FOR A REASON, ASK THEM A REAL QUESTION, DAMNIT!

comicbookguy December 2, 2009 at 4:08 pm

“Chris Matthews just referred to West Point as “the enemy camp” ….my boobs are going to explode.

Why does Matthews have to be so visibly unhinged?

Meghan knows the lost secrets of Atlantis. And she hasn’t gone rogue. I’m just saying.

Chris once again pays the price for assuming his audience is literate.

Oldskool December 2, 2009 at 4:19 pm

I like her use of “jackass”. He’s a little goofy and apparently obsessed with comparing everything to the plots of old movies. One day I wanna see someone show up wearing a face shield for spittle protection.

From Wikipedia:

“Woods are long-distance clubs, meant to drive the ball a great distance down the fairway towards the hole. They generally have a large head and a long shaft…”

I won’t be able to process all this information until Pat Buchanan neatly condenses the incident into a Nixon era limerick.

Have you ever noticed that Chris Matthews has the same sweaty, panicky, frothing at the mouth, bug-eyed look as Chris Farley? Please, dear jeebus, DO NOT make us look at Chris Matthews in a Chipendale’s costume!

Obama said ‘four hundred and twenty’ last night, on the TVs which Time Magazine wrote as ’420′ in their transcript and for some reason the interwebtubezes isn’t all atwitter about that.

Sharkey December 2, 2009 at 4:26 pm

If Meghan really cared, she would explode her head in one of the “bad Afghani” camps.

Paul Tardy December 2, 2009 at 4:27 pm

POTUS Obama should have kept on that guy POTUS Bush hired to hold up “Clap or be sent to Iraq and/or Afghanistan” sign. That’s the funny thing about hiring and firing decisions, people you thought were completely useless turn out to be key in certain situations.

germansteel December 2, 2009 at 4:29 pm

I pine for the days when a tee vee talking head who said something this stupid was summarily fired.

Matthews has diarrhea of the mouth and mind. I don’t like Olbermann, either, but at least I can watch his show without wanting to kick the screen in.

BTW, I’m a die-hard leftie, genuine veteran of 60′s radicalism, etc etc. I hate the stupid, though, even if it’s supposedly from my side of the political/cultural wars.

Good for you, K-Lo. Not exactly where I expect to find the voice of reason, but hey, I’ll take what I can get these days.

queeraselvis v 2.0 December 2, 2009 at 4:33 pm

Y’all are missing the most important question of the day: what does K-Lo think of Meghan’s bodacious tatas?

[re=470388]queeraselvis v 2.0[/re]: Oh— oh thank you. Thank you so much for that.

gurukalehuru December 2, 2009 at 4:39 pm

[re=470381]germansteel[/re]: I disagree with you on two counts. First, I don’t really think Chris Matthews qualifies as being “on our side.”
2nd, I don’t think what he said was completely stupid. When he said “you all know what I meant,” that was reasonably accurate, as long as ‘you all’ doesn’t include Meghan McCain. I think he was wrong because it seems Barry was actually well received and is actually quite well liked by the military, but it wasn’t stupid.

Alaska Girl December 2, 2009 at 4:44 pm

Megs should know from jackasses, having grown up around a prime example.

germansteel December 2, 2009 at 4:45 pm


A tee vee commentator who has to qualify his choice of words with “you know what I meant” is stupid. His stock in trade are his words. Referring to West Point as the “enemy camp” is inane on any level.

thefrontpage December 2, 2009 at 4:46 pm

Does anyone here actually know Mecant McKeg? Can anyone tell her to stop messaging on Twitter, to stop posting anything on the internet, to stop appearing on television, and to shut the hell up? A bit of tough love is needed, as she’s nothing but an idiot and a moron.

gurukalehuru December 2, 2009 at 4:47 pm

You’ve got to hand it to Barry. The man is a political genius.
The right is split between “Yes! Yes! More War! Yes!” and “The complexionally challenged evil socialist muslin acorn worshipper is for it, so I’m agin it.”
Split right down the fucking middle.

gurukalehuru December 2, 2009 at 4:53 pm

[re=470406]germansteel[/re]: “The enemy camp” as political metaphor, like that time he participated in the totally rigged debate at that mega-church, I forgot the pastor’s name.
Really, if the reptilian-Americans weren’t so intent on finding something to scream about,that would have passed almost unnoticed.

imissopus December 2, 2009 at 5:02 pm

Geez Tweety, maybe the room full of twenty-year-old kids didn’t seem overly warm because they are wondering which of them will get blown the fuck up in Afghanistan sometime in the next few years and they’re a little, oh, apprehensive about it. You dumb fat sack of crap.

Umm, hey Ken, what’s up with the subtle change in the “desert red” (aka PINK) background on the page here? It makes my little icon feel a little more…exposed. A little more obvious.

Fact of the Day:

Did you know that Chris Matthews is personally responsible for 99.9% of the use of the term ‘ethnic’ in the 21st century?

…and now you know.

populucious December 2, 2009 at 5:53 pm

Isn’t it clear that by “enemy camp”, Matthews was merely suggesting that usually to get into West Point one must row in the back via canoe disguised as a pretty townie girl, start a food fight in the dining hall and then spy on the counselors making out in the shower? Whereas our Commander in Chief just walked right in the front door!

Cicada December 2, 2009 at 5:56 pm

[re=470415]gurukalehuru[/re]: I believe the pastor’s name was “Fatty McDickcheese”. Glad to be of service.

Mr Blifil December 2, 2009 at 6:03 pm

Matthews knows the military mindset so well, as a result of his many tours of duty. Along with the many times he hired military anal-yst Jeff Gannon to fuck him in the dumper.

Uncle Glenny December 2, 2009 at 6:03 pm

Does this mean the armed uprising speculated on by WingNutDaily didn’t come to pass?

“West Point is a friend to Paul Wolfowitz. Paul Wolfowitz is an enemy of Obama. A friend of my enemy is my enemy. But Paul Wolfowitz is also his own worst enemy, and an enemy of my enemy is my friend. But…”

ummm…do you remember when he literally admitted that he was in the midst of working up a raging hard-on for then candidate Obama? He’s bi-polar and bi-curious. I think it’s silly to try and say that Matthews isn’t often a devoted fan-boy of this current president.

loupgarou December 3, 2009 at 1:54 am

Would it be controversial for an Obama visit to Mississippi or Oklahoma to be called “going into enemy territory”? Let’s be real–Obama got an even lower percentage of the military vote than he won in Mississippi, or even Oklahoma.
