Loud. Harsh. Matthews.

Hardball_STG.jpgMarketWatch’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.
