If It's a Primary, That Means It's Chuck Todd Tuesday!


Sporting a snappy navy blue pinstripe number, Chuck threw out the numbers as only he could do; authoritatively with both wit and sagacity belying his youth. Though underneath it all, experienced Chuck Todd watchers could see him desperately trying to get people to listen to him through veiled statements based on electoral mathematics and prognostication that Senator Clinton's chances are virtually nil and that she is being a petulant and disruptive harpy anxiously trying to jettison her remaining dignity. Or I could be projecting.

Things in fact got a little tense with Howard Fineman early in the evening on Hardball with Chris Matthews when he vociferously disagreed with Fineman on the motives of the pain in the ass Senator form New York. Howard sees her going full-blown Machiavellian and becoming cavalier and disingenuous in her efforts to help get Obama elected in the general thus paving an easier road for her in 2012. Chuck T shook his head while in split-screen and visibly disagreed with the ultimate election season name-dropper Fineman. Chuck felt that although devious, the Clintons could no way allow themselves to be seen as spoilers to the ascension of Obama. Here here Chuck. As always you're right on the money...bravo.

A little later, our crazy uncles Matthews and Olbermann stumbled into introducing Chuck with all the elegance of a drunk pissing off a deck in high seas by making some kind of weak segue out of "election numbers" and some nonsense about the "naked truth", that was soon twisted into a joke by Keith about Chuck's new show "By The Naked Truth with Chuck Todd". I think I speak for everyone who reads this blog; we love the Chuckster, but man, "naked" and "Chuck Todd" should never be imagined together, even in jest.

Nice to see some love for the man who pierces the pundit bullshit with "facts" and "data."

Fight the power, Chuck T.

But Chuck is part of the problem, part of the machine currently chewing up the Clintons and acquiescing to this "cover-up" that Bill Clinton is talking about. He needs to back the F up and stop trying to suppress the vote!

I can't express how glad I am I caught Morning Joe this morning where they tossed this site out there. I love you guys. I really do... Keep up the amazing work. VIVA CHUCK TODD!

Another thank you to "Morning Joe" for pointing Chuck fans to your site. When Chuck talks, you always learn something no one else seems to have thought of. He IS "appointment television" even if you don't know exactly when that appointment is. I'm sure it's just a matter of time before MSNBC gives him his own show.
Love your fan site!

Whoa, is that you Nora O'Donnell? You're totally hot and you break down the exit polls with sass!

I love Chuck Todd! He is so unassuming but still commands your attention. I watch Morning Joe every day and I'm so glad they gave a shout-out to this site--I look forward to seeing the site expand with even more fun info!
