Chris Matthews does the unthinkable, praises Rush Limbaugh

Despite the thrill he gets up his leg whenever Barack Obama speaks, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews played it pretty straight during the Clinton impeachment debacle. And as he demonstrates in this clip, one can safely assume that was because he’s no fan of the Clintons.

Matthews: Let’s take a look at Rush — I have to do this — Rush Limbaugh today impersonating Bill Clinton and assessing the situation. Let’s listen to Rushbo.

Andrea Mitchell: Oh dear!

(Begin video clip)

Rush: (Doing Clinton impression) I’m going to kiss your (BLEEP) if you kiss my (BLEEP). I’ll make sure that you — if you come groveling to me, I’ll be happy to help you out here. Now look at what has happened here, they go to Bill Clinton. He’s famous for getting people jobs. Monica Lewinsky offered a job at Revlon. She was offered a job at the United Nations. She didn’t take any of them. But they’ve got Bill Clinton. Isn’t it great, folks, that they found a guy who they know will commit perjury to carry the water here?

(End video clip)

Matthews: Well sometimes even he can get it right. That was pretty good lampooning, I’ve got to say.

“That was pretty good lampooning”? Very strange wording and oddly reminiscent of Richard Nixon saying to David Frost, “Do any fornicating this weekend?”

Or is it just us?

Man, you KNOW if the idiot stream media ACTUALLY states that Rush Limbaugh was “on target” with his ***snort*** “lampooning” then the world the yellow journalists live in IS in “DANGER, DANGER, Will Robinson”

What’s really funny here is that Andrea Mitchell (who Mr. Limbaugh totally skewers EVERYDAY because she is such a moron) was the person who had to listen….all I can hear echoing in my ears is Mr. Limbaugh’s pronounciation of “Andrea Mitchell” (which can not in any way be duplicated because, it’s the talented on loan from God, Mr. Rush Limbaugh)

Too funny!

Chris, when will you learn you cannot dig your way out of a hole?
