DROPPING THE HARDBALL: Big a fan as I am of Chris Matthews, I don't think he should ever make fun of George W. Bush for malapropisms again. Matthews has had the strange habit lately of mistaking his guests for others with similar names- the most embarassing gaffe of the kind was probably when he addressed well-known Chicago Tribune columnist Clarence Page as "Clarence Thomas." Then, well discussing the sniper investigation last night with ex-NYPD cop Bo Dietl, he mistakenly called his guest "Bo Derek." Now maybe that was just wishful thinking, but never mind. I look forward to the day when a guest accidentally calls the host "Dave Matthews."
