Chris Matthews: ‘Oh, God’

Dissing Bobby Jindal:

I didn’t like Jindal’s speech, either, but then again, nobody’s paying me a million a year to do TV news, either. And I didn’t diss his speech before he ever opened his mouth.

UPDATE: Michael Calderone of the Politico says it sounded like Keith Olbermann, not Matthews, who said “Oh, God.”

Jindal does himself no favors

Ace and Allah both dissed the Louisiana governor’s earnest-dork performance:

A big wiffle-ball swing and a miss for the consensus favorite 2012 candidate of Republicans who look down their nose at Sarah Palin. I like Jindal. Great conservative with good ideas. But Palin’s so much better on TV, there’s no comparison. Whatever her weaknesses, you can’t deny she’s got the telegenic quality.

UPDATE: Think Progress has video of the Fox News panel trashing Jindal’s performance:

“This was not Bobby Jindal’s greatest oratorical moment.”
