Chris Matthews Tells Christian Conservative Leader to Spank Colleague (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Nov 30th 2010 6:30PM
Fairly or unfairly, a series of scandals have created the impression among some that the leaders of the Christian conservative movement can be a little kinky behind closed doors.

It seems like Chris Matthews is of that opinion, as evidenced by a rather strange suggestion he made to Tony Perkins, the president of the right-wing Christian lobbying organization The Family Research Council.

Perkins was on 'Hardball' (weekdays, 5 PM ET on MSNBC) to clarify statements made by Peter Sprigg, a senior fellow at the FRC, which seemed to suggest the FRC is in favor of making gay sex illegal through the court system. Not so, said Perkins, adding that the FRC is against any criminalization of gay behavior.

"Tony, you're always welcome here," Matthews told Perkins. "Now go back and spank Peter Sprigg for saying the wrong thing on this show, because he said the opposite of what you said."

"We don't do that either," responded Perkins, sounding a bit like someone who'd had to make that clear before.

Chris Matthews is the best political analyst/interviewer on the tube today. Unlike Bill O'Reilly, he really is fair and balanced. He is like a bulldog and tries his hardest to get the interviewee to answer the tough questions and won't settle for less.

Chris Matthews lost something when the tingle went up his leg.
Suggesting spanking an adult???? And he cannot close his mouth long enough for a guest to answer his questions.
