Unfortunately, Chris Matthews has had one of two things afflict him: either he's caught "Zell Miller" syndrome and is in need of genuine psychological treatment, or he's simply a man who will whore himself out to whatever side appears to hold better career promise.
Perhaps it's a mix of both. The bottom line is that, just like CNN, it would appear Matthews is in competition with Fox News for an ever-smaller slice of the viewing pie. Sooner or later, media execs are going to catch on that Olberman and Air America have a pretty good thing going, and realize that there's a much bigger audience to be had. Until then, it seems to me that it's past time we treat Chris Matthews as a "hostile witness" and give him the full-on Sinclair treatment: go after his sponsors, and get him kicked off the air, if possible.
He's made himself part of the problem; there's absolutely no doubt whose side he's chosen.
....but not all precincts have reported in yet, and more have reported in the Governor's race than in the others. We'll have to wait for the final results to see whether or not there's a true gap in the number of votes cast for each.
