Newt Gingrich plays hardball, calls Chris Matthews out for his racism


In a short but oh-so-sweet exchange this afternoon on “Hardball,” Chris “Tingles” Matthews got his quivering leg handed to him by none other than Newt Gingrich. After ludicrously claiming that it’s Republicans who obsessively play the race card, Matthews was cruisin’ for a bruisin’. And boy, did he get one.

Conservatives got thrills of their own watching Gingrich take Matthews to the woodshed:

Of course, a few people inevitably couldn’t process Matthews’ complete stupefaction:


Gingrich can't find way out of box. He's hating his interview & can't twist words enough. Chris Matthews is enjoying it.

— Kleyton Cooper (@kleytoncooper) August 27, 2012

@TPM when did Chris matthews decide to raise hell? I'm loving this angry tweety look. Gingrich is making a fool of himself.

— Steve Lubot (@fenwaysteve) August 27, 2012

Chris Matthews absolutely filleting Newt Gingrich. This is hilarious

— Lizzy (@Lizzy_Nielsen) August 27, 2012

“Filleting”? Was she watching the same interview we were? Dream on, honey. Matthews got pwned.

And such masterful pwnage is worthy of a masterful hashtag game. Enter #ThingsChrisMatthewsThinksAreRacist:
