|Chris Matthews:||(Over speaker) Welcome to In-N-Out Burger. I’m Chris Matthews. The Double-Double burger: two pure beef patties or too much to handle? Let’s play hardball.|
|Customer:||Yeah, uh, I’d like to get–|
|Chris Matthews:||Let me start with you. Do you think that the number two meal, which consists of a cheeseburger, a drink and a side of fries — do you think that this could be something that you as an average American would be interested in getting? How do you think that will play?|
|Chris Matthews:||Does this meal resonate with people such as yourself? And how will it play with the evangelicals?|
|Customer:||Look, can I just–|
|Chris Matthews:||Is that something that interests you? In the sense that you would be interested?|
|Customer:||Can I order please?|
|Chris Matthews:||Go ahead.|
|Customer:||I just want a number three–|
|Chris Matthews:||That wasn’t my question. You’re not answering my question…|
|Customer:||I’m trying to–|

|Customer:||Excuse me, but isn’t your job to ask me what I want and listen to my answer?|
|Chris Matthews:||My job is to get at the truth. And I don’t think your menu selection has been properly vetted.|
|Customer:||But I haven’t even given you my–|
|Chris Matthews:||Let’s go to a clip of another customer speaking out on this issue. This is fascinating. Let’s listen…|
|Audio Clip:||(Over speaker) I’d like a number two, hold the onions… Uh… Does it cost any less to hold the onions?|
|Chris Matthews:||Compelling stuff. Proving Americans are more concerned with pocketbook issues than the war in Iraq. What do you make of that? (Pause) …Are you there? Whoa! What are you doing back here!? You’re not allowed inside–|
|Customer:||(Over speaker) I came in here to kick your ass, you obnoxious prick!|
|Chris Matthews:||What are you, a neo-con? Did Pat Buchanan send you?|
