Chris Matthews: I'm so glad we had that storm last week

The ongoing storm cleanup in New Jersey is most likely proving to be an obstacle to all the trucks trying to deliver Candygrams and Thank You Cookie Bouquets to Chris Christie’s house today, but Chris Matthews went beyond a step further last night when he expressed appreciation for the storm itself. As Tingles was basking in the warm glow of The Thrillbringer’s victory, he expressed his appreciation for something that may have factored into the win:

“I’m so glad we had that storm last week. ‘Cause I think the storm was one of those things. No. Politically, I should say. Not in terms of hurting people. The storm brought in possibilities for good politics.”

Even MSNBC couldn’t throw it to commercial fast enough after this:

You could almost hear everybody else say “Come on, Chris, that stuff’s supposed to remain bound and gagged in your internal monologue!”

Matthews later tried to backpedal and clarify on Twitter, but that window into the mind of an opportunist isn’t something he’ll be able to easily close, not that it ever was in the first place.
