MSNBC's Chris Matthews Goes On Obnoxious Rant Against ‘Idiots’ Who Vote 3rd Party Candidates Like 'Numbskull' Gary Johnson


Are you one of the many voters who feels disillusioned with the two-party system and wants to make your single, solitary voice heard by voting for a third party candidate who is possibly more aligned with your own viewpoints?

If you are, well guess what: YOU’RE AN IDIOT. Says MSNBC’s Chris Matthews.

Appearing on this afternoon’s NOW with Alex Wagner panel on MSNBC, the firebrand Democrat went on a truly sanctimonious, condescending rant against “idiots” (like this writer) who vote for third party candidates or stay home on Election Day....

I am one of those idiots, and proud to have placed my

protest vote for the Libertarian Party candidates. I think there is some question, however, about who is the idiot and numbskull in this discourse.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

A little embarrassing eh Chris?

Clearly, "mainstreaming" emotionally ( and I.Q.) challenged people can have it's awkward moments... and this is one of them.

Gary must be cutting into his boy O's votes

That's what my blog pal on the ground in Ohio say is that Gary is appealing to dems moreso than ex-repubs.

Glad to do it. Keep stealin'

Glad to do it. Keep stealin' 'em, Gary.

The Secret to Success

Believe in, support, and be an activist for exactly the OPPOSITE of everything Chris Matthews believes in, supports, and is an activist for?

And we will have a free, prosperous, clean and safe nation.

Go f*ck yourself Matthews.

You *and* the phony corporatist propaganda network that hired you and the criminals it serves.

I know your probably half

kidding but I think you are on to something. One would lead a decent honest life with no regrets if they did the opposite of that odious creature.


Actually .. no. I'm not kidding :)

I have been subjected to enough Chris Matthews over the years enough to know, that I would have to try really, really, REALLY hard to find anything he advocates for that I would even partially agree with lol.

There might be something.

But I would almost guarantee, that it would fall under "identification of a problem" as opposed to "solution of that same problem"

ie. He might identify a crony capitalist relationship (a real one, granted) ..

... and then? in the same breath?

Immediately postulate (pontificate) that every rational intelligent individual KNOWS FOR A FACT that turning to the exact same, corrupt, bought and paid for regulators is the ONLY possible solution to the problem. :)

And that anyone who disagrees with him is an idiot. (as he is foaming out the mouth ranting with disgusting spit flying everywhere.)

That's Matthews.

Yeah, definitely laugh at him, then do exactly the opposite. Good advice imo.

What an A hole

"that's what the Romans called people who don't vote.. idiots" Yeah, because the Romans are still around... right?

I'm so glad I'm an idiot and

I'm so glad I'm an idiot and wrote in Ron Paul today!!

I'd rather

I'd rather be an idiot with a conscience than a genius with a maniacal plan. Chris and his ilk, those who believe that only two types of people exist, democrats and republicans, are the greatest evidence that homo-sapiens has fallen greatly short of its potential.

Frankly, I respect a random dolphin far more than I respect Chris Matthews.

Bad Acid........ mixed with a radical socialist agenda

equals Chris Mathews... Scary!

Chris is part of the system

Therefore He's part of the problem.

I wonder what Lawrence O'Donnell has to say


I must be doing something right,

when 1 of the biggest idiots in the world starts calling me names.

Finally Real Truth from the words of the corrupt

"They (all of us idiots?)don't know how the system works"
"You have two choices"
"Turnout is what everyone can control"
"They (all of us idiots?)can't control who wins"

Don't know about anyone else but I also remember something about the other msm panel knowing how it all works.

Needless to say they can kiss My Idiot a$$, we are quite aware of how your system works Matthews, Too bad you haven't figured out that it is going to collapse around you.

The first of my ancestors arrived in 1687, Indentured to serve another for 4 years, we fought in the Revolutionary war, Civil war, WW1, WW2, Korea, Vietnam, and Served during Desert Shield/Storm, Now my Family and I serve The "Revolution"

Herd them back into the chutes, Chris. This is good.

They wouldn't send out Chris the "Hit Man" Matthews unless they had a leetle mite of a problem with these third party/write-in votes.

Release the Sandy Hook video.

Since he's a rabid stray,
