Bill O'Reilly ripped both Chris Matthews and MSNBC on Thursday after Matthews dubiously remarked that Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has a "black Irish look."

Matthews used the term, which refers to Irish people with dark features, while railing against Cruz ... and Pat Buchanan, Joseph McCarthy and O'Reilly.

He said they all look alike. O'Reilly was not happy.

"In addition to being misguided politically, Mr. Matthews also apparently needs glasses, badly," O'Reilly said, calling it a "desperate attempt to get attention."

The reason, O'Reilly said, is MSNBC's ratings. "In the last six months, it’s all fallen apart for MSNBC," he alleged. "They’re in a desperate situation right now.”

With his recent comment that Sarah Palin is profoundly stupid - his words - Chris Matthews is not showing any indications of dialing back his fiery rhetoric.

The host of MSNBC's Hardball took a shot at the ex-Alaska Governor Tuesday while discussing the presidential prospects of another Republican woman.

While talking about Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann’s shot at the 2012 GOP nod, Matthews was told by a guest analyst not to count out Sarah Palin.

He found that idea laughable, to say the least.

“I think Sarah Palin proved herself to be - I think she’s proven herself to be profoundly stupid,” Matthews said to applause on-location in Los Angeles.

“Her inability to answers the questions of Katie Couric, her inability of even now to explain if she ever reads anything... her absolute failure to begin studying and get serious about running for president,” he continued.

“She has shown no effort to doing any homework or understanding issues about the economy or science or the world. No effort and she’s running for president? I don’t believe she would be at all helpful to our republic.”

Well that leaves clears up where Chris stands. We're not even gonna touch this.

Cue blistering Sarah Palin Twitter response in 5 ... 4 ... 3 ...

The State of the Union address by President Barack Obama Wednesday provided plenty of sound bites, but MSNBC's Chris Matthews probably had the night's best.

Or at least the most discussed.

"I forgot he was black tonight for an hour," said Matthews, to which puzzled people across the country reacted somewhere along the lines of [crickets] or "lol wut."

Taken in context, Matthews meant it as praise for Obama as a uniter, a "post-racial" president who has "brought us so far." Still, not the best word choice, Chris.

"I think he's done something wonderful," Matthews later explained. "I think he's taken us beyond black and white in our politics, wonderfully so, in just a year."
