Sorry, it was Pat Buchanan, NOT Chris Matthews. I was
listening, not looking, and they _do_ kinda sorta sound
a bit alike. Maybe.
I said:
Chris Matthews, commenting on the debate, just said "the dog
that didn't bite, to use a Sherlock Holmes term, the dog that
didn't bite [repeating the term] was the ...." guy Obama was

Didn't _bite_?
Didn't _bark_, I think Sherlock said.
