Before the taped interview on "Hardball" with Chris Matthews, the host and guest Tom Delay had an off camera chat:
MATTHEWS: Have you seen this new focus group stuff on the candidates?
DELAY: No I haven’t
MATTHEWS: It’s great stuff. I’ll send it to you — it’s great — yeah it’s great stuff. Hillary, John Kerry. All these guys, all these Democrats, and how they do. And, uh, Frank Luntz did it…
DELAY: who I like
MATTHEWS: …and Hillary did not do well. Kerry did well.
DELAY: You’re kidding.
MATTHEWS: I am NOT kidding. They didn’t like Edwards — they thought he was a rich lawyer, pretending to care about poor people...
DELAY: Too slick. Too slick.
MATTHEWS: …and Hillary was a know-it-all.
DELAY: Nothing worse than a woman know-it-all.
Oh yes there is. You're worse than any one ever thought, Tom Delay. A cheat, liar and hypocrite. And Chris, you're no better, for kissing up to this moron on your show.
Wonder what Hardball's advertisers think about this. Let's give them a call, shall we?
