Suffering fools is one thing...are we expected to take them seriously too?
So, I JUST finished bemoaning this weird cult-like enthusiasm for a Presidential wannabe in his pretty empty suits standing alongside his Ghandi equivalent among women, and NOW I have to be subjected toTHIS, via Newsbusters:
During MSNBC's live coverage of Tuesday's presidential primary elections, after the speeches of Barack Obama and John McCain had aired, Chris Matthews expressed his latest over the top admiration for Obama's speaking skills as the MSNBC anchor admitted that Obama's speech created a "thrill" in his leg: "It's part of reporting this case, this election, the feeling most people get when they hear Barack Obama's speech. My, I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don't have that too often."
Umm, PLEASE tell me he didn't say that...PLEASE!
Apparently, Olbermann (another unbiased and neutral "journalist") was in on this little love tryst as well. Of course, we'll never know where Obama tingles him, but it's pretty clear they are both smitten with the Presidential hopeful from Illinois. The whole thing makes me tingle too...in the pit of my overturned stomach, thank you very much. Have a little context with that regurgitation? Then, go below the fold for the "objective assessment" from Matthews and the banter between him, Olbermann, and Brian Williams...if your stomach is empty of course...
