Chris Matthews’ Leg Has “Had It Up to Here” With Olbermann’s O’Reilly Obsession


It was cute for a while, but Chris Matthews Leg is officially “done” with Lil’ Beady’s monomania about the host of The O’Reilly Factor.

At first The Leg was amused by KeOlb’s all-consuming, reason-draining preoccupation. And it empathized. After all, it’s no fun getting trounced in the ratings night after night after night. Criminy, in a typical evening three or four times more people watch The Factorthan tune in to watch Olbermann give an hot oil video foot rub to the Daily Kos commenter mob. That’s gotta sting.

But The Leg says “e-freaking-nough already.” It’s had it up to here (indicating the hip bone area) with whole thing. “At least give it a rest off the air. And stop carrying around that ridiculous OReilly face on a stick, too. FYI, the kid on the other end of the Taco Bell drive through speaker can’t see that you’re holding the O’Reilly face up when you order—even though you think it’s hilarious.”


Meanwhile, The Leg got a kick out of seeing (on Hot Air) Olbermann be all conflicted and scoldy about SNL and Jon Stewart poking fun at the swoon MesmerO has the news media in. The Leg feels vindicated that it isn’t the only one feeling the thrill.

The Leg “Giddy” After Shoutout from Michelle Malkin

Something Chris Matthews’ Leg described as “a jolt of pure, bio-luminescent bliss” shot up the extremity today upon learning that Michelle Malkin had named this little outpost “Best New Blog Name of the Month.” The Oracle of the Leg is deeply grateful.

That, of course, would explain that massive spike in traffic over the last 24 hours.

Speaking of spikes, that surge of power The Leg felt after hearing that Michelle had noticed it, shot past the thigh, beyond the left cheek and kind of swirled in the general spinal area—leaving The Leg giddy and dazed. At least, until the news of William F. Buckley Jr.’s passing competely “harshed its buzz.”

Like the Head, The Leg thought WFB was very cool and a class act. He’ll be sorely missed.
