If anyone knows balloon heads, it's Chris Matthews.
Ironically enough, the politician on Chris Matthews' show during his recent fit of name-calling attacking Michele Bachmann as a "balloon head" for rightly stressing the importance of the Founding Fathers' work toward the abolition of slavery was none other than Charles Schumer.

What are the chances of Chris Matthews calling him names?
