Chris Matthews: Rand Paul a ‘Pissant’

Chris Matthews: Rand Paul a ‘Pissant’

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews lashed out at Rand Paul, repeatedly calling the Kentucky senator a “pissant” for his criticism of New Jersey governor Chris Christie. Last week, during a Senate hearing, Paul chastised Christie for appearing in television ads showcasing his state’s recovery efforts after Hurricane Sandy.

“Here’s some real pissant . . . I want to say something about Rand Paul: He’s getting smaller by the minute,” Matthews said last week. “It’s a pissant comment.” He went on to criticize Paul, as well as his fellow Republican senator Ted Cruz, who questioned Christie’s decision to expand Medicaid in the state, arguing that their shots at Christie signaled a “lack of chivalry” and magnanimity.

Perhaps Ron Paul will take a properly supplicant attitude...

the next time he humbly begs for a moment of Mr. Matthews' time...

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

Thank you, Piss Matthews.

You eloquently repeated The Establishment™ fears.


While I don't necessarily disagree with Matthew's assessment...

I would not say such a thing on public television.

If Chris Matthews and Bill O'Reilly fought to the death in a cage match, you know who would win?

The country (Maybe we can get it on "pay for view".)

Chris "Spittle" Matthews

Chris "Spittle" Matthews wouldn't make a pimple on a Pissants ass.
Rand Paul 2016!

Chris who?

Isn't he one of those gov. propagandists on the dinosaur TV news that no one watches anymore?

I aint got no particular love

I aint got no particular love for rand, i aint got no particular love for matthews, i aint got no particular love for christie, but mathhews is a fool for being in a position as "interviewer" and NOT being impartial in that role, its fine for the gusest, its what a debate needs, two sides to a story, but when you have an interviewer with loaded questions to one particular side, then thats a problem, he's role is to bring TOGETHER that debate, not to claim the role of "interviewer" and USE that role to belittle a different perpective, although there can be exceptions, just diferent folks will feel differently about diffent things some based on impartiality othrs based on ignorance or superiority, outside that role is a different matter, but like many others ive seen, ive seen him being bias to one side as interviewer, and ive seen other folks being surprisingly repectfull to BOTH sides even when i get the vibe that they lean to one side, they let the interviewed speak their peace, dont add an opinion, because they are aware that it is the debate between these two sides we want to see.

These folks can argue all they like, while i'll still be looking for the one who will carry the message in the way i can suppport....i usually know who they are when i have the uncontrolable urge to make air fist pumps to something they've said :)

Anyway, that is just my own opinion on that subject

Means Test

Instead of trying to fight disaster relief in one swoop, shouldn't a better approach be to start by means testing? That means that only the poor or working class gets benefits. Any resulting cost reductions can reduce the deficit. That way, a viable insurance market can form to serve with the rich and upper middle class. That way, the transition to no disaster relieve won't be so bad and it won't be such a tough sell at the polls.

This is the same strategy Paul, CATO, and Reason are using to fight entitlements.

One Democrat defending another.

Krispy Kreme has friends in low places it seems. lol

Chris Maththews...??

The news guy who spits all over his own face when he talks? Gross.

na, the guy that 'asks' you to come closer,

so he can go full-creep on ya, live on TV! but, equally gross, nonetheless, like eeew gross:

though frankly, someone says Chris 'Tweety' Mathews, the only image that comes to mind is:

Matthews is an idiot

No one watches that mush mouth, I don't care what he says.

Chris Matthews is a retard

Chris Matthews is a retard that has virtually no audience anymore.

Kurt Vonnegut on pissants:

"A pissant is somebody who thinks he's so damn smart, he can never keep his mouth shut. No matter what anybody says, he's got to argue with it. You say why you like something, and, by God, he'll tell you why you're wrong to like it. A pissant does his best to make you feel like a boob all the time. No matter what you say, he knows better."

Hey, that describes Chris Matthews rather well.

“Although it was the middle of winter, I finally realized that, within me, summer was inextinguishable.” — Albert Camus

Matthews is Just Another Presstitute

He'll say anything for money. He'll even fake indignation, as is evidenced here. The more they attack Rand Paul, the more I'll dig my heels in to support him. I cannot be swayed by their onslaught of propaganda. Rand Paul or none at all in 2016.

Chris Matthews????

He still has a show?

Further Proof We're Still Winning.

For an "adult" man to come on national television and use 6th Grade-level language like this and expect people to NOT see through his Biased Bulls**t remarks as anything other than slanderous character attacks, is rather embarrassing to watch.

And they just can't figure out why their ratings are plummeting.

You see, there is a new level of respect for the opposing opinions of others that has emerged in recent years that just doesn't require the "Extra Effort" to taint someones image. The Truth is all you need. And when Truth is not on your side, then you must resort to lower-level consciousness and switch to "primitive monkey-brain" communication to appeal to those still watching this kind of garbage because they've missed the "conscious evolution" train.

TRUTH, Full Steam Ahead!

"Tingles" calling someone a pissant?

When I think of pissant, Chris "Tingles" Matthews is one of the top 5 that come to mind.

Are you

kidding me here? Chris Matthews has the audacity to call Rand Paul a 'pissant'? Yeah, because Chris is 'such a man' that he can disparage others, right? Me thinks Matthews was gazing into a mirror!

O.P.O.G.G. - Fighting the attempted devolution of the rEVOLution
Ron Paul 2012...and beyond

OK this is baiting. Following up on Maddow.

Trying to draw him down. Or trying to rile us up. They won't get the former. Not sure about the latter either. Like we don't know these people for who they are?

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

Chivalry? Seriously? Has this

Chivalry? Seriously? Has this guy advanced beyond medieval times? Spending a bit too much time at renaissance fairs?

I Thought Rand Paul Gave Him A Warm Feeling Down His Leg

I guess Matthews knows alot about being a PISS ANT..

When the liberal talking heads can't argue the issues intelligently they resort to name calling...


Lack of chivalry?

So because Christie has an R next to his name Rand must kiss his boots and celebrate his "victory".

You know you are in a bad place when Chris Matthews is defending you.

"Once you become knowledgeable, you have an obligation to do something about it."- Ron Paul

Rands getting flack

Must be he is over the target. Whats up with Michael Steele, selling out to MSNBC? What's the cost for a "house negro" these days?

ecorob's picture

Rather than call him a name that is sure...

to win you no support and dredge up painful history...

Lets just say that Matthews and Steele are both sell outs to the globalists and disinformation is the goal for both of them.

whaddayasay? hmmmm?

I do agree that Rand is "over the target" but no one remembers you said that.

Bombs away, Rand.

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!
9/11 Truth.

The more MSNBC attacks Rand...

...the more popular he will become among Republicans.

So, fine by me Chris, go to town (and then go to hell).

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

the real question...

is can he handle the national stage?

He has to convince two sides that he is fighting for both of them. Its gonna be an epic showdown of the little guy vs. the machine.

Rand has real motherfkn support. What happens in 14 can catapult Rand into the national spotlight.

I believe Rand has the balls, brains and brawn enough to pull our country together and onto a different, better path. A real leader. There is nothing wrong with our message and being able to point at the person at the top and say 'What he said!' is what leadership is.

Don't get it twisted. Im not blindly going to support Rand. This community will be his toughest critic because we have the loudest voices.

I trust Rand.
