Why does Tweety have panelists ?

I'm streaming Hardball on MSNBC. He asks a question and almost answers his own question. Then interrupts the panelist's answer.

1. GOOD QUESTION.

He's impossible to watch.

2. He needs someone to start answering his question so he can take over the answer

and leave the panelist trying to continue while he talks over them. Drives me nuts.

4. Why does he have a show? I can't count how many times he has said something ridiculous

MATTHEWS: Ann Coulter, you're the first to speak tonight on the buzz. The president's performance tonight, redolent of the best of Reagan -- what do you think?

COULTER: It's stunning. It's amazing. I think it's huge. I mean, he's landing on a boat at 150 miles per hour. It's tremendous. It's hard to imagine any Democrat being able to do that. And it doesn't matter if Democrats try to ridicule it. It's stunning, and it speaks for itself.

<snip>

MATTHEWS: We're proud of our president. Americans love having a guy as president, a guy who has a little swagger, who's physical, who's not a complicated guy like [former President Bill] Clinton or even like [former Democratic presidential candidates Michael] Dukakis or [Walter] Mondale, all those guys, [George] McGovern. They want a guy who's president. Women like a guy who's president. Check it out. The women like this war. I think we like having a hero as our president. It's simple. We're not like the Brits. We don't want an indoor prime minister type, or the Danes or the Dutch or the Italians, or a [Russian Federation President Vladimir] Putin. Can you imagine Putin getting elected here? We want a guy as president.

<snip>

MATTHEWS: What do you make of this broadside against the USS Abraham Lincoln and its chief visitor last week?

LIDDY: Well, I -- in the first place, I think it's envy. I mean, after all, Al Gore had to go get some woman to tell him how to be a man. And here comes George Bush. You know, he's in his flight suit, he's striding across the deck, and he's wearing his parachute harness, you know -- and I've worn those because I parachute -- and it makes the best of his manly characteristic. You go run those -- run that stuff again of him walking across there with the parachute. He has just won every woman's vote in the United States of America. You know, all those women who say size doesn't count -- they're all liars. Check that out. I hope the Democrats keep ratting on him and all of this stuff so that they keep showing that tape.

MATTHEWS: You know, it's funny. I shouldn't talk about ratings. I don't always pay attention to them, but last night was a riot because, at the very time [U.S. Rep.] Henry Waxman [D-CA] was on -- and I do respect him on legislative issues -- he was on blasting away, and these pictures were showing last night, and everybody's tuning in to see these pictures again.

11. And why has no one pointed out to him

the irony of his calling the final segment of the show "Let Me Finish."



(he never lets anyone else).

5. It's a learning experience trying to fight down my anger while Tweety is talking.

His voice itself is unbearable, as he sounds as if he desperately needs to clear his throat, as if he's being choked. Hideous.

His bizarre behavior with people he asks to his show should all get medals for not having walked off, leaving him blabbering on to himself, just the way he does it while they are there. Can't imagine how pathetic he was as a child, to have never learned some degree of socialization. He is one wildly overgrown brat.

He also is wildly self-centered, just like the "president."

I am so glad to have said this. I hope more Tweety haters will add their "take" on this yellow monstrosity, as well.

My husband refuses to listen to him altogether. I'm getting very close to it, too.

Thank you, rickford66.

6. Why does anyone watch him? Why does he have a job? He's driven me crazy with that for years...

so for years I just don't watch him.

9. My husband and I . . .

say this all the time. Why does Matthews ask questions when he never lets anyone answer?? He gets the prize for constant and annoying interruptions.

A mystery. Although I think the reason might be Matthews really wants to interview himself, every night. And sell books about 'back in the day,' the golden years when Reagan and Tip O'Neil had a 'swell' relationship, shared drinks (and maybe jelly beans) after a hard day of politicking.You can almost hear the music swell in the telling. Again and again and again.

Simplistic and bo-o-oring. Oy!

10. I Refuse to Watch Him for That Reason

I won't turn on the TV until Chris Hayes is on.
