Chris Matthews: Bush's F#&!*N Ranch!MSNBC’s Chris Matthews ran afoul of censors by using "the f-word” during a Wednesday appearance on the ‘Imus in the Morning’ show. Matthews, the fast-talking and brash host of the popular MSNBC show "Hardball,” was praising former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani’s 2008 candidacy when he went on a rant about "city guys” like Giuliani versus the "southerners,” such as President George W. Bush, who run for national office. Matthews: "We love good mayors because we love our cities and Giuliani is a city guy . . . I’m so sick of Southern guys with ranches running this country. I want a guy to run for president who doesn’t have a f***ing ranch . . .” Imus: "Did we bleep that out of there? . . . What were you swearing for?” Apparently, Imus' national radio show which airs with a tape delay "beeped" out the expletive, but MSNBC did not catch it.
