MarketWatch’s Jon Friedman writes up a profile of Chris Matthews and begins with this appropriate opener:
He isn’t smooth. Or polished. Or low-key. Or practiced. Or a member of the preferred age group. Instead, he is loud. And brash. And intense. And confrontational. And 59 — a young-looking 59, it should be noted.
And we also agree with this observation
The most startling, and endearing, moments of “Hardball” occur when Matthews invokes, of all things, a Yiddish phrase, out of nowhere.
Oy vey, indeed.
