Chris Matthews and Newt Gingrich: The Most Entertaining (and Reptile-Centric) Political Interview Ever

The whole interview was like that: two battle-weary political veterans, grown men of indiscriminate, childish enthusiasm and boundless ego, enjoying themselves -- and the spectacle of themselves -- immensely. In Matthews' instinctive, emotional, hectoring style, Gingrich -- the man who never met an idea too grandiose -- seemed finally to have met his match.

As a tryout for Gingrich in his new role as Romney supporter, the interview was somewhat rocky. Gingrich said he respected Romney for having beat him: "You have somebody who's tough enough to look you in the eye and run over you," he said.

"Did he tell the truth about you?" Matthews asked.

"No," Gingrich replied. "But he did what he had to do."

As a recommendation of Romney, it was far from ringing -- but refreshingly honest. Later, Gingrich described himself as "a team player," with a big, can't-touch-this grin.

"HAH!" barked Matthews, emitting his signature one-note guffaw. "You know, when you smile, I know what you are." Gingrich just grinned even wider.
