NBC’s Chris Matthews Calls Newt Gingrich ‘Nasty’ Looking, ‘Dogs Walk Away When They See Him’

Chris Matthews: “Why does a guy with a diabolic grin — 'and I’m being completely objective here' — a guy who doesn’t look like a presidential candidate, looks too nasty for one, why is the nasty guy doing the best of all the candidates right now? The one who is so obviously nasty? ... They want somebody who looks nasty like Jack Palance from Shane…some nasty guy that the dogs walk away when they see him. You know what I’m talking about?”
