Chris 'I Lost On Jeopardy!' Matthews: 'Palin's Briefing Papers Have the Weight of a Comic Book'

Eight days after making a fool of himself on Jeopardy!, MSNBC's Chris Matthews was back to impugning the intellectual capacity of Sarah Palin.

After playing a clip of the former Alaska governor discussing why she wanted John McCain to focus on Barack Obama’s connection to the America-hating Reverend Jeremiah Wright in the 2008 campaign, Matthews mocked Tuesday, “I think her briefing papers have the weight of a comic book” (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

He continued, “Anyway, there you have it. That’s Sarah Palin, the so-called 'game changer,' calling for more thorough vetting of President Obama. I would put vetting in her case more to use.”

This from a guy who thinks the six-letter capital of Russia is Istanbul.

Cue Weird Al Yankovic:
