First: you can embed Media Matters videos now? Hooray! Second: oh god Chris Matthews we almost sympathized with you after that embarrassing Times Magazine disaster but this is beyond the pale. He's so desperate to prove his "Obama = elitist" Dowdian bullshit narrative that he's decided pool is for rich people? Ok. Sure. Whatever. Your blue-collar cred is amazing, Chris! You've apparently never walked into a shitty bar anywhere in America. Still, memo to Barack Obama: if you want to prove your manly athleticism, the basketball thing won't work, because it is too black. And the pool thing won't work because Chris Matthews has never seen a pool table outside of a wealthy friend's rec room. Obviously Obama should demonstrate his solidarity with the working classes by blowing all his campaign money on online gambling.
