Tonight on MSNBC's Hardball TV show, Chris Matthews introduced the Sen. Kirk Watson "Hardballed" T-Shirt ON THE AIR! - the one I created just last night! (see my post below)
My intention was to get one more local news day out of Watson's already nationally famous gaff, but my jaw dropped as I was watching "Hardball" tonight (one of my favorite political shows) and Chris threw up the image of the T-shirt and the close up as you see above.
The segment was called "Watson Wear". Chris Matthews said:
"(Chris laughs) Now apparently there's a T-shirt to commemorate that moment. There it is, it costs $20 and 99 cents. And it looks as if there are eight colors to choose from, I want mine in Royal!"And, the best part - before he introduced the Watson "Hardballed" T-shirt - he ran the whole clip of Sen. Watson getting caught with his pants down - AGAIN! THE WHOLE CLIP.
You can't buy that kind of national coverage. So, I'm please with myself, that I extended the clueless Watson gaff for one more news day. No matter what Watson does, he'll always be known as the guy that didn't do his homework. But we always knew that, with his voting to divert $910 million tax dollars to shift our freeways to tollways, and his back door deal with Intel, and his profiting off directing billions of road dollars as CAMPO chair.
That one hour of design work I did between midnight and 1 in the morning paid off in spades. THAT is the kind of efficiency I live for. We've got 2 years to soften you up Watson, before your next election, we are going to stay on you like white on rice.
