    Jeopardy tonight - Chris Matthews, MSNBC, vs Robert Gibbs, Presidient Obama's press guy vs Lizzie O'Leary of CNN. Should be worth watching. :)

    Coming on at 8 Eastern tonight - 7 Central - 6 MDT

    That actually does sound pretty cool.

    It's times like these I regret having TV service. Thankfully, these times are few and far between.

    I'd really be surprised if the show wasn't rigged and scripted.

    Let me guess - Jeopardy is part of the massive Soros-ACORN-Obama left wing conspiracy, and they'll make sure that Gibbs wins?

    You think? I'm wondering who they'll bring on during the week. I think Chris Wallace from Fox is to be a contestant and I don't know who else. So far Gibbs is doing well but then he had a whole string of cabinet positions to name. That does seem a bit rigged doesn't?

    Okay Lizzie O'Leary answered the most questions but bet too much in Final Jeopardy (which none of them got) so Gibbs won it. More tomorrow night. Chris Matthews a substantially distant third but he did better than Wolf Blitzer did when he was on. :)

    LOL...nice job Matthews. No thrill up his leg on that TV set I'm sure, although wouldn't be surprised to hear he wet his pants a bit.

    Keep that one for the highlight reel.

    I wish they would get Sarah on. I think she might do as well as some, though Lizzie and Gibbs did acquit themselves quite well. But as many of us have suspected, Chris Matthews wasn't anywhere near as sharp and well informed as the other two.

    Tonight it is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, David Faber (CNBC), and Dana Perino (President Bush's former press secretary and currently contributor on Fox News.)
