Rough week for tingles
Just hours after a producer for deranged MSNBC host Chris Matthews
was accused of physically assaulting Republicans outside the party’s
national convention last night, Matthews himself has admitted to
verbally confronting several GOP delegates at a restaurant in Tampa,
Florida calling them a “douchebag convention.” According to The
Hill newspaper, the perpetually angry liberal television host confronted
the delegates early Friday morning following taunting questions they
asked about whether he felt “thrilled” following GOP nominee Mitt
Romney’s acceptance speech. The controversy began, according to a
witness interviewed by The Hill when Matthews twice refused to
acknowledge a New York delegate named Eric Ulrich who had greeted him.
This prompted other Republican patrons of the restaurant to begin
heckling him for the perceived slight: He headed back into the
restaurant to mix it up with them. “I wanted to confront them,” Matthews
said, describing his exchange with the men as “towel-snapping” among
guys. Matthews said he told the rowdy group, “What’s this, a douchebag convention?”
The Republicans became angry and retorted back.
“I told him that’s next week," said New York delegate Anthony Nunziato,
referring to the Democratic convention in Charlotte, N.C., that will
start on Tuesday.
