To all the millions of victims of superstorm Sandy, Chris Matthews has a message: "I'm so glad."
The MSNBC host, on a panel of pro-Obama pundits including Rachel Maddow, ended election coverage overnight by saying he's "glad" the storm hit, suggesting it served a greater good by boosting President Obama to a second term.
"I'm so glad we had that storm last week," Matthews said, after interjecting to give some final thoughts. Somebody off-screen could be heard saying "ooo" at that remark, but Matthews confidently put his hand up to explain.
"No, politically I should say -- not in terms of hurting people. The storm brought in possibilities for good politics," he said.
