Chris Matthews, who has been on a rampage this week in trying to label the Republican Party as racist, switched gears last night after Ann Romney’s speech at the Republican National Convention and used the opportunity to attack Mitt Romney directly.
Matthews complimented Ann Romney for a speech that he said was personal and made her look good, and then turned his attention to Mitt Romney’s appearance on the stage at the end of her speech.
But then he came out at the end, and he almost looked like he came out on wheels And he almost looked like he came out on wheels, like he’s not real. That person who came out there like that, almost a statue of a person. His odd animation — his odd lack of animation. The way he moved in the room at the end was strange. She’s a real person trying to advertise him as a real person. But she really advertised a Mr.-Fix-It.
Matthews continued with his attack by referencing Romney’s wealth and calling him a “conehead” who doesn’t quite seem like an Earthling, adding that Ann Romney had to make Mitt seem like a real human being and not a “wooden like-figure.”
I’m not really sure how Romney was supposed to look last night in that very brief appearance. He kissed his wife and waved to the crowd, before departing with her, hand in hand.
Apparently that wasn’t sufficiently human for Matthews.
