MSNBC's hosts had another series of lively exchanges with former New Hampshire governor John Sununu on Tuesday night.

Sununu drew some attention for his on-air attacks on Chris Matthews over the weekend, and he brought his A-game to the network's coverage of the New Hampshire primaries. His candidate, Mitt Romney, won handily, but that didn't stop Sununu from bristling at some of the questions he was getting.

When Ed Schultz brought up a study that said Romney's tax plan would raise taxes on the middle class and lower them on millionaires, Sununu called the study a "crock of crap."

When Lawrence O'Donnell asked about George H.W. Bush's performance in the New Hampshire primaries, Sununu lashed out. "You don't know what you're talking about!" he shouted. "You're really funny...I think you're grasping at straws."

The hosts, knowing a good thing when they saw it, kept their cool.
