I guess it is no surprise that an Irish yob like Chris Matthews would be harboring a secret animosity towards the flamboyantly gay Ellen DeGeneres, but I am surprised that he would take the risk of trying to kill her on national TV! Well, perhaps there’s another interpretation. I was dancing with Gladys several years ago, and got a little over extended whilst dipping her, and unfortunately fell on her. In my defense, she bruises easily. It was a shame, too, because up to that moment, we were really cutting the rug. It somewhat spoiled the effect.
