Chris Matthews: Genius

Chris MatthewsI got an email disputing my analysis of Chris Matthews’ response to the state of the Union. They asked how Chris Matthews could be a spittle-spewing racist and also be infatuated with President Obama. Well, I’ve never overestimated Matthews’ ability to reason, or the consistency of his opinions, but this got me thinking. F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote that:

“The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function.” – (“The Crack-Up” (1936))

If that’s true, then Matthews is a freaking genius.
