Concluding his interview with the chairwoman of the New Hampsire Republican Party in a Manchester diner on Wednesday afternoon, MSNBC host Chris Matthews went on an odd tangent about how the topography of the Granite State supposedly makes it edgier than "flat" Midwestern Iowa. "Topography spells character," Matthews insists.
 



MSNBC weekend host and Wake Forest professor Melissa Harris-Perry had a scary confrontation with a hostile man in Des Moines. He wanted to know why MSNBC would pick her for a show. (Many people might ask this question.) She wrote a blog on how this somehow caused her to think of being raped as a child and maybe this man had come to murder her. Without more of a recreation of the unpleasant conversation -- with just swatches of Nazi references and anger -- it's impossible to know how unglued this accuser was. 

The "safe space" was violated. Her piece began: "I don't know if he was there to kill me."



In a thoroughly softball interview geared at presenting Hillary Clinton as a sensible centrist progressive who holds the Democrats' only hope of presidential victory this year, Hardball host Chris Matthews fawned over Clinton by essentially apologizing for not appreciating at the time the former senator's 2008 New Hampshire primary comeback subsequent to her stunning Iowa caucus loss.



Appearing as a panel member for CNN's live coverage of the Iowa caucuses on Monday night, liberal CNN political commentator Van Jones at one point went over the top in praising Hillary Clinton's alleged political skills during a discussion of how the Clinton campaign could try to make lemonade out of the lemon of Clinton being in a near tie with Bernie Sanders in Iowa. Jones gushed that Clinton has "blossomed into the kind of candidate that you dream about," and asserted that "she was brilliant" at the recent CNN town hall event.



Moments ago on MSNBC, Andrea Mitchell reported that the HIllary Clinton camp was "in a meltdown as this race got closer and closer."



Liberal CNN pundit and former Barack Obama advisor Van Jones declared the 44th President of the United States the "coolest person ever born" during live Iowa caucus coverage on the network this evening.
 



Speaking for the establishment, MSNBC analyst Nicolle Wallace on Monday announced that D.C. political types have decided they can “live with a President Trump.” But not, apparently, a President Cruz. Wallace, who previously worked for the McCain/Palin ticket, derided, “Ted Cruz's lack of civility toward his colleagues....He was not a very collegial person.” 



On Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher, GOP presidential candidates Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz were both on the receiving end of HBO comedian Bill Maher's latest anti-conservative vitriol as he called Cruz a "creep" and a "practiced liar" while comparing Rubio's religious beliefs to those of the terrorist group ISIS.



Can you imagine what Cruz could get done if he were elected with a mandate to implement conservative ideas — the only antidote to the destructive path Obama has set us on? We've seen what we get with conservative lite, and it doesn't work.



On Thursday's New Day on CNN, during a discussion of whether GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz being born in Canada is responsible for hurting his Iowa poll numbers since last month, CNN co-anchor Chris Cuomo at one point gloated that the Texas Senator has been a "divider" who is being "hoisted on his own petard."



In the episode “Iowa,” CBS’ The Good Wife continued its pursuit of painting Hillary Clinton as the inevitable Democratic presidential candidate. On the eve of the Iowa Caucus, the Florrick family and advisers are on the campaign bus debating the pros and cons of doing a “Full Grassley.” (A Full Grassley means stopping in all of Iowa’s counties during a campaign cycle and is named after Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley). 



ABC News’s senior national correspondent Cecilia Vega continued her cheerleading for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Tuesday’s World News Tonight as she gushed that Clinton is working to win over voters “one handshake, one chai at a time” (in reference to her order of a chai tea at an Iowa coffee shop).
