Good evening, and welcome to another edition of Oddball

Caroline May at The Daily Caller poses the question, “Has Chris Matthews lost his mind?”

I’m not so sure that he’s lost it, exactly; I’m thinking it more likely that his mind has become atrophied from non-use. Perhaps it’s time that we remove the poor thing from its life-support system and permit it to expire with the dignity it knew not in life. And who knows? Maybe unplugging Matthews from MSNBC would even effect a kind of miracle cure. After all, as the linked article points out, he was not always a wild-eyed, flaming liberal with a renegade larynx; he even subbed for Rush Limbaugh one time.

Someone once said of Bill O’Reilly that he’s not really a conservative; he’s just a cab driver with a television show. Maybe Matthews isn’t really a liberal, just an ignorant misogynist beguiled by what passes for glamor inside the Beltway (with a television show).

Oh, wait…that’s pretty much the definition of the standard liberal talking head, isn’t it?

Yeah, you’re right Caroline. He’s nuts.
