Chris Matthews On ‘Voice Of Reason’ Gov. Christie’s Defense Of Muslim Judge: ‘I Love It’

Chris Matthews deserves credit for calling ’em like he sees ’em (or maybe just having a short-term memory?) as today he had glowing remarks for New Jersey’s Republican Governor Chris Christie. It wasn’t too long ago that Matthews dismissed Christie as an unpopular “loudmouth,” yet today he was happy to brand Christie as the “voice of reason.”

Matthews was impressed after Christie appointed a Muslim judge and forcefully shot down any criticism by responding “this Sharia law business is crap, it’s just crazy, and I’m tired of dealing with the crazies.” Matthews applauded the smackdown and how “Christie fired back as only he can.”

The praise didn’t end there though, as Matthews gushed “I love it! How’s that for putting the issue to rest, this guy is a Jersey guy!” Now look at that, it seems anyone who can get both Ann Coulter and Matthews to love them certainly has some future in national politics, right?
