A few days ago the liberal media was all abuzz over how Paul Ryan supposedly muscled his way into back of a soup kitchen in Ohio and started washing already-cleaned pots and pans as a photo op.
It turned out later, however, that soup kitchen staffers had left some dirty pots and pans for Ryan to wash. Yes, it was part of a campaign photo-op, but the pots and pans were actually dirty and Ryan actually cleaned them. NBCNews.com's "First Read" blog noted the crucial update to the tempest-in-a-teapot on Tuesday. But judging from today's Hardball, MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews doesn't read his sister network's website.
In his "Political Sideshow" segment halfway through the October 18 program, Matthews gleefully recounted a gaffe of Paul Ryan's Wednesday involving Cleveland Browns backup quarterback Colt McCoy. Ryan mistook McCoy for the Browns' starting QB Brandon Weeden.
"A swing and a miss for Ryan," Matthews exulted, adding that "by the way, the other day [Ryan] was saying he was washing pots and pans that were already clean."
"He's making a lot of mistakes. He's getting closer to Daffy Duck out there," Matthews concluded.
