Have You Gone Berserk? Can't You See That Man is a Ni..

What does Chris Matthews need to do to get fired?
Up next: They're the working-class white voters Hillary Clinton won and Barack didn't. Can Obama now win over the regular folks, white folks, against John McCain? We'll ask the strategists. You're watching Hardball.

Sweet Jesus, yadda yadda.

Seriously, Matthews has been racist and sexist throughout the campaign, depending on whose ox he was trying to gore. This isn't even the first time he's made the connection that regular folks == white folks. Non-white folks? Not regular, evidently. Not "real Americans."

It's depressing that a jackass like this would continue to have a job. I've given up on his hardcore misogyny costing him his job, and frankly, I'm not optimistic about racism doing him in. It's "just Matthews," he's "just like that," and besides, the news media also thinks regular folks have white skin.

Video after the jump.
