The Delicious Irony Of The Chris Matthews ‘Jeopardy’ Meltdown

May 22, 2012 5:49 am 0 comments

The most delicious irony of all is being witness to MSNBC’s moronic Chris Matthews EPIC FAIL on Jeopardy after repeatedly mocking Sarah Palin for how he imagined she would perform as a contestant on the same game show:

In the Hindu world of karma, and the biblical realm of you reap what you sow, MSNBC news anchor Chris Matthews received his due on the May 14th airing of the game show Jeopardy. In a special presentation of ‘Power Players’, where Matthews went head to head against former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, and CNN’s Lizzie O’Leary, the host of Hardball came up quite short in both earnings and prestige by finishing dead last, and accumulating only $2300.

The irony of Matthew’s failure in the popular trivia based gameshow, is that four years ago the former Presidential speech writer and journalist berated then Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin for not having the brain power to do well as a competitor, and in answering tough questions.

“Is this [vice presidential debate] about her brain power?… Do you think cute will beat brains?…Do you think she’d do better on the questions on Jeopardy! or the interview they do during a half-time?…My suspicion is that she has the same lack of intellectual curiosity that the President of the United States has right now and that is scary!” – Newsbusters

Additionally, none of the professional news reporters did exceptionally well, with O’Leary and Gibbes winning only $4200 and $5600 respectively. Compared against the average winning totals that range between $10000 and $15000, we see the cumulative winnings of all three journalists barely reached the levels of the average winning contestant.

To the political world, and the average television viewer, it was interesting to see Chris Matthews struggle on a game show he frequently cites on Hardball to denigrate American intelligence.

Author and Yahoo! contributor Mark Whittington comments:

Of all of the pernicious and misogynistic slams on Palin, the ones about her intelligence has been the most puzzling. If Matthews had been paying attention, he would have realized Palin thinks well on her feet, as when she ripped Joe Biden to shreds during the 2008 vice presidential debate. That should have served as a clue to people like the MSNBC host who seems to be enraptured by the black legend of Palin as the psycho-bimbo.

Why do people like Matthews like to run down Palin’s intellect? Instapundit’s Glenn Reynolds speculates it is a sign of a well-founded intellectual insecurity on the part of the person doing the mocking. They feel threatened by a person of undoubted gifts as Palin has and react accordingly. Most of these Palin haters are liberal men like Matthews or Bill Maher who mask a certain anxiety with bluster.

Of course, there are women who hate Palin but for different reasons that are as old as high school cliques…

Whittington asks whether Matthews’ embarrassing Jeopardy experience will serve to compel him to acquire some much-needed measure of humility and teach him the lesson of casting stones in his MSNBC glass house. Not a chance, in my opinion. That would require that Matthews be in possession of at least one clue and a degree of intellectual honesty, neither of which we have seen him demonstrate in all his years of preaching to the liberal choir that is the Hardball audience.

    Commissioners Stop Jesus Prayers After Threat By Judge

    Sadly, the right to pray “in Jesus’ name” has been halted by an anti-Jesus Judge.

    Maryland’s Carroll County Commissioners say they’ll reluctantly obey a federal judge’s order barring them from starting their public meetings with sectarian prayers,” reports OneNewsNow

    The five-member, all-Republican board voted 3-2 Tuesday to use only nonsectarian prayers to open their meetings – for now. The resolution runs through Aug. 1, when the board says it hopes the Supreme Court will have ruled on a similar dispute in New York state.

    Some commissioners have routinely prayed to Jesus Christ when it was their turn to ask for divine guidance over board proceedings.

    Obama Admin: Fighting Terrorism but Supporting Terrorists?

    News recently emerged that “the Obama administration is imposing sanctions on an Egypt-based group that has claimed responsibility for attacks against Egyptian officials, Israeli interests and foreign tourists in Cairo and the Sinai peninsula. The State Department said Wednesday [4/9/14] it has designated Ansar Bayt al-Muqadis a ‘foreign terrorist organization.’”

    While ostensibly a laudable move, some—many in Egypt—think this announcement is a ruse to portray the Obama administration as committed to combating terrorism, even as it supports the head of the terrorist-snake, the Muslim Brotherhood.

    For instance, according to Mustafa Zayid, the Coordinator of the Sufi Coalition Forces in Egypt,

    Christian Publisher Plans Pro-’Gay’ Book, Employees ‘Under Threat’

    Is the Christian world about to suffer through another World Vision moment?

    The book’s author, Matthew Vines, is a homosexual activist and Bible revisionist known for manipulating Christian terminology to advance the counter-Christian homosexualist agenda.

    Despite his frequent use of a Christian-like lexicon, Vines surprisingly admits to running an apostate enterprise that he calls The Reformation Project. An unabashed denier of Biblical teaching on sexual morality, Vines has publicly acknowledged that his goal is to “reform church teaching on sexual orientation and gender identity.” The book is scheduled to be published on April 22, 2014.

    How The ‘Gay’ Jihad Normalized A Filthy Practice

    The public career beheading of former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich at the hands of pagan sexual jihadists, coupled with an escalating epidemic of Christian business owners facing harsh government persecution for merely living out their faith, has startled awake an America lulled to sleep by the left’s intentionally deceptive, yet oh-so-sweet sounding serenade of “equality, tolerance and diversity.”

    Average folks have finally begun to recognize that America’s “progressive” power class of cultural Marxists and left-wing statists really intends, and always has, to subjugate ideological dissenters through abject inequality and intolerance, while demanding blind obedience to an anti-Christian, sexual-anarchist, socio-political agenda.

    Judge To Christians: Celebrate Gay Weddings Or Go To Jail

    An administrative judge has ruled Christians must now celebrate sodomy, or face jail.

    Spreading “civil rights commissions” in most cities and states are turning toward anti-Christian persecution, when Democrats and Judges rule that homosexual “rights” take precedence over Religious Freedom to opt out.

    Such was the case last week, when a pro-gay Judge in Colorado supported a pro-gay “rights” commission to enforce a Democrat non-discrimination law that openly punishes Christians.

    Jack Phillips, a Christian baker, was deemed to have no First Amendment protections, no right to protest, no free speech, no freedom of religion. Instead he was warned by Judge Robert N. Spencer that he must personally help celebrate homosexual “wedding” ceremonies or face $500 fines per future incident or jail.
