MSNBC’s Chris Matthews turned his attention tonight to Texas Gov Rick Perry who is expected to announce his bid for the Republican presidential nomination tomorrow by calling him a clown and full of B.S.

Matthews: He looks like a clown when you watch him in these pictures. I assume they can be totally not very representative but he dresses very fancy. There’s something about the way he puts himself together that doesn’t look authentic. He looks like a wax figure presenting to be a governor or something.  I can’t quite get this, there’s something about this that doesn’t add up to me. Maybe it’s this Texas B.S.thing, this boots and tuxedo thing they do down there.

Maybe Matthews can be forgiven since he is a Philadelphia boy and wouldn’t know an authentic Texan if he met one, but this sounds like another attempt by Matthews to remove any potentially viable GOP candidate in order to pave the way for Obama’s re-election.
