What do you know. It took Bill Maher cracking jokes on Hardball about Republican hypocrisy with their feigned outrage at the Sotomayor hearings to get Matthews to admit that his hero John McCain may have a bit of a "temperament" problem.
Matthews: I just love Lindsey Graham going after her today about anger management. And here's the guy who was the biggest supporter of John McCain, and he was, he wanted McCain to be President of the United States and he was wondering whether she might have a temperament problem. Did he ever check in with his number one hero on that point?
Maybe you should be asking yourself the same question, Chris. I don't ever remember you bringing up McCain's temper during his Presidential run.
