Chris Matthews Wonders If Rich Iott's Nazi Reenactment Was Homoerotic (VIDEO)

Rich Iott, a Republican running for congress in Ohio's ninth district, has been universally condemned for his bizarre, troubling hobby of dressing up like a Nazi SS soldier with a group called 'The Vikings.' On 'Hardball with Chris Matthews' (weekdays, 5 PM ET on MSNBC) Matthews discussed Iott's hobby with Joshua Green -- 'The Atlantic' writer who broke the story.

But instead of focusing on the inherent anti-semitism of Iott's behavior, Matthews veered off in a different direction, wondering aloud: "Was this some kind of homoerotic thing they do they put on these uniforms and dance around?"

Green decided not to touch that potential angle of the story. However, if Matthews wants someone to discuss the homoerotic implications of playing dress up and parading about, he could always get in touch with Carl Paladino, who has some strong opinions on the subject.
